I want to see the money but I like it for next year. The team is better off with KO on the inside and Oher at RT.

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

Good signing for the Ravens. Was hoping that they would have to re-shuffle their O-Line and have Oher move to LT or KO move to one of the Tackle spots. Ravens O-Line improvement with everyone playing where they were supposed to was the biggest reason they won the SB last year IMHO...

Yep. Osemele is going to be a beast at LG, and with the right side secured well by Yanda and Oher (who I think is a very good RT), the only questions were LT and C.

Good things are being said of Gradkowski at Center, and McKinnie is a very capable LT when he's motivated. This O-line should be capable of dominating their opponents.

Might be saying goodbye to Ramon Harewood though.

New front office, same result. I don't understand why SD is such a dead lands for free agency. Do they not get the fact that we should lead with, reinforce and end with; "you get to live in San Diego on rich athlete money."

You should be blessed that McKinnie chose not to sign with you guys.

Not unless Albert lowers his price. Again, SD can't afford to pay Albert $8+ million per year. And Miami pretty clearly doesn't want to.

Despite Albert being clearly a better option at LT than either King Dunlap or Jonathan Martin, he's also a 28 year old OL who has had back issues in the past and who is demanding Top 3 OT money. So on a cost/benefit analysis, it's not difficult to see why GM's aren't jumping to acquire him.

I don't think it helps that the state of California's taxation commandeers a healthy chunk of that "rich athlete money" that they never get a chance to spend.

Yeah, why on Earth would they want a Pro-Bowl caliber OT who just won a Superbowl and didn't allow a single sack in the playoffs?! BLASPHEMY!

Because 4 games erases all his issues and the fact he didn't start a regular season game? Laughing

having been all around America, san Diego is one of the place I'd pay the taxes and not even be mad. My fav "normal" place in Cali, by far.

by normal, I mean not stupid, stupid expensive. Its still really expensive, though.

It's not a dead land. FA will come because of the Benjamins. Did you forget the amount of free agents we signed last year?
