    Conklin is not worth the franchise tag. You don’t pay a right tackle the average salary of the top 5 LTs in the league. It just doesn’t makes sense.

    Didn't make sense trading up for him either

    I'm looking at options to be able to keep him. I don't think we can match anybody else's offer. If we franchise him and someone else wants him bad enough they would have to pay 2 firsts for him

    Not the point, though... sounding like people are fine with Conk going and not even talking about a good option after... as if the line is fine.

    Not keeping Conk is fine, but a good alternative needs to be looked into.

    Shoot, if we can franchise him and then trade him for an early 2nd we should do it. He would be overpaid and we could draft someone to eventually replace Kelly with that pick.

    I don't believe Conk is "the guy"... but we can't really afford to diminish the Oline and not look to help it.

    Improved Dline is a must... but not at the risk of worsening an already suspect Oline.

    I agree with this, but my gut is that, since there is a dearth of available OTs on the market this offseason, the price for Conklin will be well above his market value. Unfortunate but likely IMO.

    As such, I see us pushing to re-sign Kelley and go OT high in the draft....

    OK but we would be paying way to much of our cap to a right tackle. You can’t spend the money that way and not negatively effect the team in other ways. If you can’t sign him you let him walk and replace him with a free agent at a lower price or via the draft. The solution is not to over pay him.

    Actually it would only cost 16 million for the tag so it's not that bad. With close to 80 million(once we drop Succop, Walker, Lewis, and Wake)we should be able to tag him and not hurt us. It's also rumored that the rolling salary cap over to the next year thing may be over with so why not spend it?
