As for the RT spot, this is a deep FA market for OT's. One would assume we could find someone that is a upgrade in fit (better pass protector) there. Then there is Stephenson that could be the RT as well.
Agree with this.
Lions also need a LT. Backus is 35 and it'd be an upgrade.
I think we all need to prepare ourselves for disappointment in the value back for Albert.
I mean if we get our starting QB for a 2nd and a mid rounder next year, what makes us think we'll get a 1st for a LT? I just have a hard time seeing it.
