I Would much rather this move than a move for Albert:

Thoughts ?

My only hang up would be $$. He's gonna wanna cash in next year and I would imagine he's gonna command more than what long/Albert wants. I would love to see it happen though!

If the compensation is right, then I love the move. I'd offer a player swap for Odrick, but it's surely too late in the game for that.

I like the player better than Albert.

Agree, last season. With FA this season there are a few FA's we can bring in and draft a LT to try to develop.

Jordan Gross- At 33, he is getting up there, but could hold the spot for a year maybe two, while we develop a rookie, can probably be brought in for a fair price too.

Branden Albert- No two ways about it, he will not be in KC next season, though he may fetch top dollar 2 million to 6 million a season (easy), but at 29, he could hold the spot down for 4+ years.

Rodger Saffold- With the Rams set on Jake Long, Saffold was moved to Guard, they may not resign him and he has a chance of hitting the market. He will be 26 the start of the season, he might be a good selection, I would still draft a rookie, to push him.

I really do not want to trade for a spot we can fill with a FA and Draft, I do think we need a Vet at LT to protect Tanney just need to get one in a smart way.

The Dolphins would be foolish to try an sign any of the free agent tackles.

Not sure I understand where u are coming from, A Veteran signed to a 1-2 year deal would help. A true rookie watching Tanney s blind side. Might want to look at some of these years game film.

Why foolish? We need to cover all of our tracks. Can't leave it to the draft where nothing is guaranteed to even be there (or to be any good for that matter.)

We'd be foolish NOT to try signing any FA tackles, which is what I hope you meant to say.

Do we really have a choice in this matter given that Ireland didn't do anything about bringing in youth/talent ???
Can we really afford to plug a mid 1st rnd kid at LT ???

I don't see any other way around either paying a mediocre McKinney decent money or paying more for a better talent. besides were likely gonna see a rookie LG tween Pouncey & the Vet LT.

Landing a bonafide starting OG in the mid 1st rnd is a heck of lot easier than a LT. Those guys aren't exactly low hanging fruit.
We have to be realistic in our expectations vs our goals given we've been dealt a crappy hand.

This seemed like a pretty good idea last year when it was first suggested, but looking at it in hindsight it was a GREAT idea.

Wish we would have done it.

The more I think about it the more I like it.

Draft an OG at 19, unless a top 2 LT prospect falls to us.

I also wouldn't mind a Center in the second or third and move Pouncey to OG. IMO that would solidify our interior line for years.

Even if we just plug in McKinney at LT for another year, this would make our OLine an immediate upgrade IMO.

Man I wouldn't replace Pouncey at OC unless the player acquired was flat out better.
Good luck with that ! Smile

A quality OC at 18 or 19 (wherever we are ? ) given the talent that will be avail seems like a "Safe Move".
And I'd much rather a quality OG than to end up with another player of J. Martins talent level.

I would muich rather have an average C surrounded by 2 very good OG's than have a very good C surrounded by 2 average OG's.

A very good C can make the OG's better, but the very good OG's can make both the OT's and the C better.

The short of it is; Having better OG's and an average C gives a team more OL flexibility than what we have now with a very good C and average (at best) OG's.
