5 years, $60 million with $31.5 million guaranteed.

If we didn't have a boatload of cap room, I would hate this move. But alas, we have more money than Solomon, so make it rain.

Our O-line this year? Whether it's Crowell or someone new, our running game should be special.

I love this move we signed a high quality player at a position of need. and he is still extremely young entering the prime of his career

If someone comes through as a legit RT option, that's a great line.

Falcons and Pats had the two OLs with the same players that played the most snaps last season. It's crucial to have consistent line play. It's been crucial in helping Dallas and Oakland bring along young QBs.

Great move.

I'll put it this way

This is the best possible transaction anyone could have foreseen.

I'm so glad they got this done this is a really big deal. I don't know how Zeitler left Cinci I tagged but I think going back to 2007 he's an even better player than Steinbach. I love this line I think Coleman is going to become a player now that he has a year under his belt, will be healthy, and has an all pro playing next to him.

If there was one guy outside of TP that we could have signed this FA to make me happy, this was him.

Our oline went from below average to good in a matter of hours.

Yeah, it's hard not to think about Steinbach with this signing. Exact same situation and same teams. That one turned out great for us, and a repeat performance would be awesome.

I read several places that had him listed in the top 3-5 Free Agents this year. He will be amazing on our line.

Who is going to play RT? I know it's not popular but Erving actually looked quick and like he knew what he was doing there during the season finale until he was injured. It will be interesting to see what our line looks like. I would think any QB would feel comfortable behind this line.

Great signing. We had to overpay a bit to get him to come to Cleveland, but with all our cap room it doesn't matter.

I'm going to pretend you didn't write that and we can still be friends.

Besides, no one actually likes candy.
