"I think that's more a case of that's where the opportunities have presented themselves,'' Mara said of the free-agency splurge, particularly in the secondary. "There were defensive players who were available that we thought could really help us. We did add some offensive players, but we have the draft coming up, so that will be another opportunity.''
"There were good players that were available, and obviously, if you have a real strong secondary, it allows you to do a lot of other things,'' he said. "I think that was an area where we felt we had to improve a little bit. It wasn't our number one priority, but those were the players who were available. I think they should help us.''
