Jordan Gross may be available

According to the National Football Post's Michael Lombardi, Julius Peppers is "nowhere close to a new deal with the Panthers and will undoubtedly be franchised."

The Panthers will have to decide between Peppers or fellow All-Pro Jordan Gross for the franchise tag, which could enable Gross to hit the open market by March. Peppers is seeking a monster contract, and the tag would "not sit very well with him."

At only 28, he could be our solution at RT if he isn't too expensive. We obviously have a lot of money to spend.

What are the chances he's affordable?

The chances are nil.

He will command near left tackle money.

Why is everyone on this board so worried about money? The Chiefs have something like $40,000,000 remaining under the salary cap, and Clark Hunt is a billionaire. What a loser's mentality. I bet you don't go on the Cowboys board and hear that players are too expensive. If the guy is worth the money, pay him.

No he won't.

He'll command pro bowl LT money, because he was named the starter at LT for the NFC.

You worry about the money because you recognize the fact that the money has to be spent judiciously by the Chiefs, even with the kind of cap room that the Chiefs have going into next season.

It isn't practical to tie up a large salary into a RT.

You have to think about the future and spending money to improve the roster from top to bottom.

At some point you'd like to have a team full of good players. If you spend your entire salary cap on your offensive line, there won't be any money left to build the rest of your team.

Yeah.

You've got to find some gems in the rough at some point on the O-line. If the only way for us to build a solid O-line is by 1st round picks and expensive FAs, we're screwed then.

yep ..... but you usually don't 'fish' at the tackle positions imo

a center and guard you want cheaper system guys

LT - Gross
LG - waters
C - Taylor
RG - Niswanger
RT - Albert

looks like a big upgrade over last year to me and that would allow us to focus on other areas in the immediate future.

This.

People around here have no concept of the word "future."

Having $30M worth of cap space, then giving huge contracts to guys like Gross and Haynesworth, all but guarantees you will be up against the cap in the future - when you NEED the cap room, because you're hopefully trying to find a final piece of the puzzle or two to make a Championship run.

As good as Gross is, Branden Albert has the potetial to be better.

You can find quality RTs in the 2nd, third, fourth and fifth rounds.

Branden Albert played great last year while learning on the job.

I just don't get why people want to just move him.

It's ****ing stupid.
