    I would do a deal with him. Tag Smith. Attempt to re-sign Hartline and Starks. Bush I would let play the market.

    agree....100%

    Of "COURSE" re-sign him. Wow. If we don't come to an agreement he's getting tagged. Long ain't going nowhere. Of course re-sign Smith and Hartline too. We got space next year.

    Yeah we have space but we also have hartline,bush,starks,long, and smith as key free agents. I see us signing 4 of the 5 but will we have enough for a receiver like Bowe?

    As long as Ireland is here, Jake won't be going anywhere.

I think at 27 he likely thinks he is or can get back to elite and demand that type of money.

    If we want to keep him, we may franchise him one year to see his body comes around, but that rarely seems to happen in the NFL for linemen. No way I sign him long term elite LT money when we have such big needs at play making positions at WR, C, S, and TE.
    How's C more of a play making position than a LT? Also, pretty sure that's one of the few positions on the team that I wouldn't worry about, Pouncey's been very solid

    Jonathan Martin's natural position is left tackle...you would only need to draft a good right tackle to replace him.

    I don't think you overpay if the guy isn't getting it done...it has to be evaluated. Good teams don't overpay their players, they let them walk.
    Jay Fiedler can take his'n and lose to your'n.....or take your'n and lose to his'n.
