Agreed with the 1st part, but not the 2nd.

I don't think we overpaid for Evans. He was the best OG in the NFL when we signed him to that contract.

Its what happens when you have the two best players at a position on the same team.

Because if Nicks gets the tag, as expected, there'd be more leverage available with Nicks for draft picks...

It would be a 10 million cap hit if we traded him. Losing Evans and losing 10 million in cap isn't worth what we'd get for him in draft picks.

Nicks and Evans earned Maddens protector award. They Just brought Bushrod, DLP and Strief with them. Seriously though we can't afford to lose Nicks. Which is funny because it's hard to say we can afford to keep him.
