How is that not coming right up against the cap when you look at the fact we have to sign the 1.1 draft pick in Fisher? And we have over 14 million in dead money, which is obviously a big part of that, along with Albert's 9 mill.

BA has played five years in this league, one contract, and you already trying to put the fork in him?

There are plenty of players that play well, especially with a move to right tackle to prolong their career. Eric Winston, Locklear for the Giants, Winston Justice, Todd Herremans, David Stewart, Tyson Clabo, etc.. All of these players are between six and ten years in the league and are still productive and playing at a relatively high level.

And then he's still on the books in 2015.
$24 million guaranteed or so sounds absolutely right. I didn't mean a low signing bonus and very low first two years. Not THAT backloaded. No one in their prime would agree to that.

Good, we want him on the books in 2015. You think he is going to go from his prime to absolute crap in two years? That's one hell of a prediction
