The first round, and I mean early first round, is the only place you will get a rookie LT that will get the job done. Very few rookie LTs make a difference. But there are always a couple. If you get one of those, you should be ok.

Exchanging Gross with a 1st round T would save a lot of money. But it would take away your best shot at getting a true playmaker at the top of the draft.

Glad I don't have to make that decision.


We have too many needs to great a hole at LT right now...

We NEED Gross.

I haven't seen any posts on Godfrey yet. Doesn't he have a pretty sweet deal that was considered over paying? I feel like with Campbell taking the SS role that would make Godfrey a candidate to cut or trade or restructure right?


After this season....Godfrey gets paid 7 mill a year. Comical.

That's more than I'd pay for Troy Polomalu.

If there is a franchise LT at 14, you almost have to take him. And from my understanding, there are two in this draft. Chances one of them falls to us are slim. So, I would almost bet we don't get one.

Gross is a necessity with a high price tag. If you can replace him and save some money, you have to think about it. Again, chances are slim we can even replace him, so I would expect him to be here next year.

Personally, I would rather get a playmaker. A ball hawking DB with some skills would be my first choice. A DT that can make a difference is a close second. Hell, I'd even be willing to go WR if the guy you want is there.

All that said, if Gettlemen lives up to his reputation, we are going to be alright. I have faith he can actually help Rivera put a good football team together.

As a tangent, with the way guys are being dropped, getting good talent cheap is easier than it has been in a long time. Which is why I expect both Gamble and Gross to be dealt with. Those two alone free us up. That really isn't that big of a mountain.

tl/dr, with one year contracts, it will come down to where do you want to play? If you get the same, or close to it, money to play here, will they come? We may be able to upgrade damm near any position this year through FA. And that is something I thought I would never say.

Got carried away, deal.

It is so damn frustrating.


I've just gone into a fan "hibernation " mode so nothing is really going to effect me for a while. After its all said and done its going to be almost 5 years before we see a playoff team at the rate we are going.

Then he should have no problem with an incentive restructure.

Exactly.
Had hasn't produced since that deal, 2 years with next to nothing due to injuries.
