Re: First Day Of Free Agency

I think it's probably around that 3 mark. If it's around 2.5, I do think it's a solid score.

All in all, today has gone pretty much expected. We all knew Bushrod to Chicago was a very likely scenario and within the past few days, Chase has been getting some attention. I would love for us to make a free agent score, but our hands are tied right now.

What we need to be doing is stop focusing on what everyone else is doing. That's out of our control... it's only going to make you miserable. Some of these teams are trying to be contenders... be happy we don't need as much help as they do. Well, I'd like to think we are... but feel free to correct me if I'm wrong.

Everyone is entitled to be stupid, but some abuse the privilege.

All little common sense goes a long way.

I hope Chase beats Alex for the starting job. I hope he has a great year...

Agreed. Bushrod is making like Mini-Drew Brees money...
Bushrod becomes the highest-paid offensive lineman in franchise history. His $35.965 million, five-year contract averages $7.19 million per season, exceeding the contract John Tait received in 2003 when the Bears signed him away from the Chiefs. Bushrod receives $17.715 guaranteed and now J'Marcus Webb, the starter at left tackle the past two seasons, will have to figure as a backup or perhaps in a competition at right tackle.

Re: First Day Of Free Agency

$7.2M/yr isn't silly money for a Pro Bowl LT, but we all know the story of Bushrod better than the people from Chicago, which is why it seems so high to us.


I wonder what type of a deal WInston is looking for..?
