We had a lot of free agents and needed to spend our available funds to replace to them. Not sure there are any upgrades here other than potentially at safety. One can argue that Woods and Gilmore were overpaid in their new deals, but it also is the case that they represent a loss of quality players that will likely not be replaced adequately for the start of this season.
If we draft a WR in round 1 or 2 (or maybe even 3) - they COULD come in and immediately replace Woods "production". Yes Woods was an excellent run blocker, but thats not to say the new WR cannot also be. And this would be at a fraction of his contract.
Gilmore's quality wont be replaced, but it doesn't need to be as dictated by the defensive scheme. Why pay 50 dollars for a pair of shoes that do the same job as a 5 dollar pair?
And you are right...we had a lot of free agents and holes that we needed to use our available funds to fill...I just don't agree that we really lost much we can't / haven't replaced.
