Tbh, if Joeckel is the pick, with Bell's decent play and youth, I'm thinking Gross maybe will and possibly should be a cap casualty.

Ive said it a few times. If we draft Joeckel we should trade Gross. He's got more trade value than Beason,Gamble or D-Lo.

Gross is the heart and soul of our team. No way we trade him. Joeckel, Silatolu, Kalil, Bell, and Gross would make for a great line.

All Gross is from a "feelings" standpoint is a counter driving force to our new era. He's a good ole boy on a modern team.

He's paid too well to play Guard and certainly not powerful enough to do so. Bell sure a heck hasn't shown anything at Guard.

Dump Gross, free up the cap and buy a capable RG with it

Bell is not and will not be a guard. His playing style fits tackle. He plays too upright and his footwork is more lateral. We'll lose some guys because of our cap situation. Gross and Gamble will be the only ones who will give you relief. We'll take a cap hit if we cut D-Lo or Beason. Why not draft his replacement. Trade him for a 3rd/4th and create some cap space?

There's also the slight chance Gross could retire.

On a side note, I'll cry if Jadeveon Clowney goes to another team when he comes out.

He's an Andrew Luck level prospect.

If we take Luke then I expect Gross to be gone. There's no reason to replace Bell with his youth, strong play and contract.

Kalil is the heart and soul of the OL.

Thank you for that. I don't understand why some don't or can't understand that T and G are different skill sets.

Moving Bell inside doesn't work in the real world as easily as it does in Madden.

Gross isn't at his peak, but he's still a good LT and we have bigger needs.

You're down to suck D for another year to add another young pass rusher? Count me out.
