Well then, he's not a general manager, he's a cap manager...

A general manager knows to reign in a head coach and make him defend his personnel decisions...

And then I'd ask, who wanted Browner?!? Terry Fontenot, Director of Pro Scouting?!?

If Fontenot rubber-stamped the decision to sign Browner, then somewhere in there should be some accountability...

I have a feeling this means Lelito will get the lowest tender and we'll let him walk if another team offers him a deal. It sure seems like insurance in case another team is dumb enough to offer him starting guard money.

It's part of the BPA and camp competition scenario.

he has been a pet project. so i guess i will sit back and watch his development for two more years. I am trying to see what exactly it is that gets him all of this love. maybe this will be a break out year

He was terrible at RG and was really the big reason while people thought Strief was struggling. He looked better at the end of the season however and did a serviceable job when he had to start instead of Armstead the last game. I hope he doesn't start but I think he can provide good depth for a game or two.

nder.

Not a chance Leito gets the lowest tender. We need 2 guards and even with the 2 million price tag im not sure they think Kelemete is a starter. I see 2 more guards coming in through FA or the draft.

Seems a tad pricey for a back-up, spot starter.

Maybe because he can back-up all 3 interior positions?

Strange... we so seldom over-pay players.

I think he can back-up all over the line and guys like that are hard to find. That might be why.

Two Million a year is a little steep for a back up. Even though he can play three spots on the line it doesn't mean he can play them adequately. I jokingly refer to him as Calamity(phonetically that is what I see). Anyway maybe he can develop into a good player. Still. Two million?

I feel like Lelito could play RG relatively well but I want to bring in two starting guards preferably through free agency. Yes. We can afford it. We definitely need to sign two starters and draft someone to compete for a starting spot. Protecting Drew is my number one priority. Yes. Even before defense. Which is why I want free agent guards.
