Possibility of adding a veteran on D?



I feel great about our offense right now. There's no doubt in my mind this team will be able to move the chains and put points up. There's too much speed and talent for that not to occur barring some injuries. However, I'm a little skeptical on the defensive side of the ball still

We still have holes or question marks @ FS, CB, and you could argue our D-line still needs a dynamic player on the opposite side of Cole (someone like a Ray Edwards).

 

Would anyone else feel a lot better if we made a trade for a DB or another veteran player on D who could make an instant impact?

If NA is still on the block I can't imagine the Eagles not wanting to acquire a guy who can take the opposing teams #1 WR out of the game single handedly. I doubt the Redskins would do this, but making a play for Haynesworth would be a good option also. A talent like Haynesworth instantly makes the whole defense, especially the D-line, around him better. We should be thankful he won't be in a Skins jersey next year.

Any other defensive guys on the block? Thoughts?
