Good, I honestly don't think we can do much better for the money. We also need as much continuity as possible on our offensive line.

I hope we resign him. He is not a World beater but he is solid and that's what we can afford.

Re: Tackle Zach Strief never set up a visit with Dolphins as interest from Saints continues, agent says

Oher has signed for the Titans for $20ml(9.5g) over 4 years

Strief 4 years between $4-4.5ml on average a year over 3-4 years.



My guess he re-signs along the lines of

$11ml base + 6ml in signing bonus 8-10ml guaranteed

Cap hit
Year 1-$2.5ml($1ml Base+$1.5ml Signing)
Year 2-$4ml(2.ml Base+$1.5ml Signing)
Year 3-$4(3ml Base+$1.5ml Signing)
Year 4-$6.5(5ml Base+$1.5ml Signing)


Thats my guess,

Thats my guess,
That's way too much and, more importantly, too long a commitment for a player that will maybe have one more good year...

Later Round Draft Prospect Justin Britt or Donald Hawkins could offer more...

And we may just have on the roster an improvement over Strief's suspect run blocking and handicap in the screen game...
FinSaint and K Major like this.

Yeah, New Orleans Hamburger and Seafood would definitely have to reshoot their commercial...

Thats my guess,

Strief ended his last contract @2.25m/year. His last contract was 3y 5.7m 750k signing bonus 1.75m Guaranteed


New contract - 2 year 5m 750k signing bonus no guaranteed

That pff website had him as the #1 RT, yet he's still unsigned. Another reason why I won't accept it as proof when used in a debate. I don't want him back. We should have got Oher.
