Orlando Brown Jr on the block


Recommended Posts

You cannot, CAN NOT, pay two tackles.  One of them needs to be on a rookie or cheap vet deal.  We're paying Moton.  Great.  Draft a tackle.  For the four years (or five if first round) this rookie is on his rookie deal, we are paying Moton.  When the rookie comes due, Moton should be ending and we either bring Moton back to finish his career on a friendly deal or we can draft another tackle and let him walk.

This isn't hard.

How about NO 

I don’t think they can afford him either

but the point I hear from the OP is that A) the reason you can’t pay two tackles is due to cap.  B) the cap is getting ready to explode so, C)  there are new rules in this house. You “can” pay 2 tackles in 2022 so use 8 at another position and build a dominant line.

Rather take Sewell or Slater on a rookie deal at 8 

100% correct. Not only would it cost us our 2nd and maybe more, he wants big $$$ so you can't pay Moton. In a strong tackle draft where we could possibly get the best LT in the draft, you don't trade away top picks for a LT who wants a ton of money.

I think you have to wait til day 2 before considering it, depending on who’s at 8, because if a guy like fields etc are sitting there at 8, it’s going to be hard passing on him or even passing on what teams would offer to move up.

defense needs some attention too

While our cap "explodes" so does everyone elses and the actual good (the OT in this case) is still scarce. So this would just lead to higher priced OTs. Its not just the Panthers cap space in a vaccum.

In theory it’s not hard,

we are in a new age of cap space. It will take acouple years for the players pay to catch up with the fast rising cap ... eventually the player pay will catch up with the cap.. 

 

   Tepper said he is willing to open up the check book ... how do the Saints always sign players when there cap space is negative.. sam has been running for his life ... get him a Pitts/chase and trade for brown (2nd and maybe 3rd ) 

 

not everyday a young tackle available... it’s worth exploring.. again cap is not the big deal it used to be and if it was...

 

most important piece is the QB. The most important to the QB is his Oline. When the QB is in a clean pocket .. he can light up his offense weapons and control clock ... that will keep the defense fresh to go out and run hard all game. 
 

 

I get it we can’t pay 2 OT top dollar .. but for the next few years player pay will be chasing the cap !!!!!! Tepper message me

What’s significant to the cap to you ?.. cap room is there .. this is a known young franchise tackle ... sure he only played LT for half a year and did well and also has play rt for high level before that .. what player in the draft has done that ? Also it’s 2 guys not 1 hopefully locked up long term at tackles ...: give sam a vet not a rookie that has to learn the ropes ... sam might not have time for that ...
