His $35.965 million, five-year contract averages $7.19 million per season, $17.715 guaranteed 2) Chase for 3 mill as a back does stink ...

Bushrod becomes the highest-paid offensive lineman in franchise history. His $35.965 million, five-year contract averages $7.19 million per season, $17.715 guaranteed

2) Chase for 3 mill as a back does stink but we have been through this before and he deserved the extra cheese and good luck to him

3) ok that is about what i expected

Will Smith's base went from 9mil to 3mil
J. Vilma's base went from 4.75mil to 1mil
So we saved 9.75 mil in cap space this yr

Now we got a little wiggle room under the cap. what about 5 mill? plus we can redo another contract or two, say Harper's to start. Dano and the gang are doing the calcs now i am sure

So a tackle and/or a defensive addition is very possible.

Conclusion
Given the cap situation to begin with and were we are now imo it may not have been the best results in day one but not that bad either.

Now lets see what happens up to the draft, during the draft then count our chickens that hatched

Re: First Day Of Free Agency

I wonder how well Bushrod will do with Cutler being his QB. Jay cutler has a cannon but at times seems to hold on to the ball just a tad too long.
This could end up making Bushrod and the rest of the line look bad.. time will tell but I don't blame the guy for going for his payday.

Which is exactly why we need to let things play out before we all ostrich.

I suppose most people make their cake out of eggbeaters in a carton and never have to break a few shells to end up with Red Velvet Cake..

Yummmm

Lets see how Bushrod does with out a good Center and Guard tandem on the side of him. Its not all QB..

The line is about cohesion and how well they all play together and pick up assignments.

Bushrod will do fine. He'll occasionally get eaten alive but will likely play very well for 14 of 16 games.

I remember most of us thought Jonathan Goodwin was a product of our system (me included) and was grossly overpaid by San Fran. Oops!
