The two best/two worst offseason acquisitions.

The two best offseason acquisitions:

Kyle Turley, OT, Rams. Turley is a good athlete who gives the Rams' offense a needed mean streak. With Turley on the right and Orlando Pace at left tackle, guards Adam Timmerman and Andy McCollum, plus center Dave Wohlabaugh, the Rams have what appears to be the best offensive line in the NFL. Wait until you see the difference Turley makes in the effectiveness of quarterback Kurt Warner, who needs ample time to make his progression reads.

Jake Plummer, QB, Broncos. Plummer is a fiery competitor who is not afraid of pressure, unlike former Broncos' quarterback Brian Griese. For Plummer, this is an opportunity to play with a quality supporting cast he never had in Arizona. Plummer arrived in Denver as a talented player in need of the structure Broncos coach Mike Shanahan provides. Surrounded by more talent and more restrictions, Plummer is likely to be impressive in Denver.

The two worst offseason acquisitions:

Dre' Bly, CB, Lions. No question, Detroit needed help at cornerback. Without a doubt, Bly is an adequate starter who improved as he gained experience the last two seasons. However, the Lions overpaid for Bly, agreeing to a price worthy of a premier starting cornerback. That he is not. This team can't afford to make that kind of mistake with the salary cap in today's NFL.

Rodney Harrison, SS, Patriots. Hours after they made one of the better signings of the offseason (Rosevelt Colvin), the Patriots made a mistake by giving Harrison a fat payday. Harrison and Lawyer Milloy are two of the league's hardest hitters, but they give the Patriots a pair of safeties with the worst range in the NFL.

Im gonna have to disagree with 3 of those picks. Plummer sucks. Bly rocks. Harrison creams.
