Steep for a RT but it is an upgrade. Good start to free agency.

$9M is a lot for a RT, but I wouldn't be surprised if someone surpasses that or gets really close. I think that Reiff actually made around $8M this year anyway.

How big of an upgrade over Reiff is this?

And how soon do we have to wait for a sound bite of Stafford screaming in high pitch voice of:

Riiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiccccccccccckkkkkkyyyyyyy

That's a lot of money. Wagner is pretty good, but I don't know how much better than Reiff he is, and Reiff probably would have cost a couple million less. I expect Laken Tomlinson to come in as our RG now.

I don't know how I feel about this yet. I hope we make a splash on the defensive side.

Let's wait and see what Reiff gets. I wouldn't be at all surprised if some team matches this or pays him more to play LT.

Definitely not accurate. I have no idea who put that in Wikipedia.

What's Wagner's rating in Madden? That might make me feel better.
