No. Oher is a RT, Collins is the guy we need to replace Gross.

 

We wouldn't want Collins to by "the guy" at LT. We should draft a LT and sign Oher even if it means waiting to deal with WR. We don't want Bell starting again. And Oher CAN play LT, well enough that even if we had to live with Oher and Bell we wouldn't be too bad off. And Collins is likely more expensive than Oher.

Collins played pretty damn well at LT. Plus, at 28 theres just no value there with OT. Unless, You just really believe that Kouandjio or Tiny are good to go. Its a reach taking Bitonio, Moses, or Mewhort. Rather take your chance and hope that Hurst (a true LT) will be there in the 3rd.

Sign those two as bookends and I'll be happy.

You never know who could fall to us. What if Lewan or Martin fall to us? We'd have to take one of them for the value at that pick. I just think Collins will be too expensive for us. He's fairly young and has showed a whole lot of upside and is just entering his prime. Oher is a decent starter but every team has seen what he can do. No ones going to be lining up to pay him, but I guarantee you there will be a bidding war over Collins. Collins is great, no doubt, but I just don't think he's our guy.

I'm 100% fine with Collins as the future at LT, especially with a mobile QB. I'd rather stick with Bell than overspend on Oher who is better suited to the right side, Bell has continued to improve BUT I still want a rookie RT to compete.

Eugene Monroe won't accept any less than $10M/year... Pretty much no way we sign him as some people want.

Who really thought we would? It was a waste of a thread

THE Mr. Aaron Wilson recently put up an article about Eugene Monroe's contract negotiations with the Ravens, but also adds more information from his sources for the rest of the OL market.

 

 

Kansas City Chiefs offensive tackle Branden Albert is expected to sign with the Miami Dolphins for an average of $9.5 million annually.

St. Louis Rams offensive tackle Rodger Saffold is expected to sign with the Oakland Raiders for roughly $8 million per year, but he is still in talks with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Oakland Raiders offensive tackle Jared Veldheer is expected to sign with the Arizona Cardinals for between $7 million and $7.5 million.

Cincinnati Bengals offensive tackle Anthony Collins is expected to sign with the Buccaneers for between $6.5 million to $7 million provided that he doesn't re-sign with the Bengals.
