I think paying him starting G money would not be smart also, but he's not bad as a C and a team might pay him a little better for that..

Wait, two million dollars for a back up. That can't be right.

Solid Back up and we need those fellas. Let's keep this stuff in perspective. They didn't sign him thinking we're going to the Superbowl with this one. But Saints talking about JR Sweezy and if Senio works really hard you could have a pretty good interior O Line for little money

Year 1 is 1.3 million.

Thats 20th in the NFL.

Does anyone think he's the 20th best LG in the NFL?

Its about the 40th highest contract for all OG's.

Wow, we overpay again.

It is a little pricey since we could've retained him for half of that with a cheap RFA tender. However, Kelemete can play all five positions on the O-Line if need be and I think that's a very valuable quality to have on the team. Plus I have a feeling that we're not going to bring back Lelito... No reason behind it; just a hunch.

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...
No, he is the GM but it has been declared by Benson, the owner, that Payton is running the whole show. If you have to point the finger at anyone for not reigning in Payton point it at Benson. In this organization the GM does not have the power to "reign in" the coach. Loomis is a cap manager, that is his strongpoint, and is part of the reason he is here. Loomis has a lot less control over team operations than most GMs in the league have, especially when it comes to personnel.

And I think the hiring of Irleand will help our scouting .

There are two GMs here Loomis - contracts and PR, Ireleand - talent evaluator don't let his Head of Scouting title fool you
