    Look at the bright side...

    It would've been 3/22 if we hadn't cut that one guy who shall not be named.

    I really don't think Oher was a bad deal at all. I don't think he will suck. Drafting Lewan doesn't factor in. I really don't have a problem with trying to make sure we draft an elite OT when one is available obviously whether or not Lewan will be is up for debate, but the logic about the importance of tackle I understand. It'll be good to have a quality backup for a season or two who can save wear and tear on the body while learning how to navigate a longer football season and be a true professional. And if injury strikes along the O-line we have an excellent backup.

    Agreed. Hate how that somehow plays into talent/draft. Sure it's unconventional but you don't pass LT if DE or QB arnt there. Just simple.

    So Kamerion Wimbley should no longer be listed on there due to the restructuring. These are supposed to be current contracts.

    I honestly didn't know which two they would list. It could've been Levitre or Griffin or McCourty.

    I like McCourty and I endorsed the Levitre signing, but those deals probably look really bad to outsiders. And so far the Levitre deal is really bad.

    I think you are right. The Wimbly contract is fine after the restruxture. Plus he looks to be doing well im the offseason.

    The Oher contrqct s not too bad either. We needed a new RT and he was the best one out there. Plus his contract is easy to get out of after two years.

    The Levitre deal was always bad. Always. Paid a good guard great money and the second-best guard on the market got something like $27 million($20 million less than Levitre.). That contract was pure ridiculousness.
