    I wouldnt be surprised if Samuda moves into Incogs spot. I also wouldnt be surprised if Incog stays until his contract done. I also wouldnt be surprised if he is traded. I do think he is definitely trade bait due to ZBS.

    Ireland can just find another Samuda after the draft IMO. Jerry is sticking obviously.

    buffalo has to sign Byrd. I dont think they are strapped but they dont have all kinds of money to spend either but I have heard around town that Wilson has said to Nix that he has all the money it takes at his disposal. I think they want to resign both.

    i thought our running game this year was pretty good the way it is. With that said, Levitre would be an upgrade for sure, but is he a NEED? Imagine we can get Long to be healthy and keep him. Then we draft a top OL in the draft and sign Levitre...our OL would be amazing.

    I'm sorry... HUH??

    Did you actually watch any of our games? Any of our 3rd and 1 non first down runs? Even if you didn't watch our games, the stats show we sucked too... are you on the correct message board?

    a big upgrade??? hmmm...no i wouldn't consider that scenario being a big upgrade...i'm assuming you are moving cog to right guard which i would agree with and jerry becomes in a competition at right tackle with a rookie or cheap vet signing and when i mean cheap i mean a one year guy at like close to vet minimum...i am one of those people who believes if jerry is pulled out of the starting line up at guard he should be competing at right tackle and might even work out as a solid starting option there...he's got right tackle feet...i also think yeatman who fits what you look for in a zbs tackle from an athleticism aspect could play into this...

    i don't hate it but i also think $8 mil per for levitre is pretty steep and i'm betting if he does hit free agency and does actually leave it's gonna be for big money...

    i do know one thing though...i'm sure jarius byrd is a major priority to resign for them given he's one of the few safeties in the league that actually makes plays on the ball and causes turnovers in the passing game...he's either getting signed long term or tagged given the safety # is not a deal breaker...

    i don't know what else they have to sign or have as free agents and i don't know their cap situation and what vets who have high cap numbers they can jettison they may be pretty strapped after that whopper mario williams deal which looks like a mistake already but byrds a definite priority

    The initial theory on Incognito at LG was that with Jake Long being such a good pass blocker he really wouldn't need to provide the pass protection help at LG that he would have to provide at RG because our RT was far shakier at the time. The reality is that Martin's play has been just as bad as Colombo's and we can't really move Incognito to RG yet. Now, if Martin makes a huge improvement in the power department, no longer is among the worst T's in the league at blocking bull rushes, and is freed up to play a more neutral stance where his good feet and athletic skills can do well against speed rushers, things might change. But, if we don't resign Long or draft Fisher/Johnson, then we'll need to move Martin over to LT, where he will definitely need Levitre's help against the pass rush. That almost necessitates Incognito moving over to RG, and puts our pass pro on the right side in serious jeopardy.

    I simply don't see how we let Long walk without bringing in at least 1 veteran OL. Nobody fits our team better than Levitre.
    You are sooo correct. Never in the history of the NFL has a rookie O-lineman ever developed into a quality player. I mean Wade Smith was a former early rd pick of the Phins and he never amounted to anything.
    If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it. The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the State.

    Very solid pickup for us if he is signed. i'm just not a fan of john jerry and think the guard position needs to be upgraded asap.

    The two not so free agents I'd sign would be Wallace then Levitre and Vollmer if we can afford him
    I would also draft Chance Warmack with our #1 pick with our 2-2nd rounders for wr and De

    Incognito would be either traded or released giving us a starting offensive line

    Martin,Levitre,Pouncey,Warmack,Vollmer
    one of the youngest and best offensive lines in the NFL

    Tannehills passing numbers and QB rating increases according to PFF more than any QB in football when given more than 2.5 seconds to pass
    his completion % jumps to almost 61% and his QB rating jumps to 96.5

    Less than 2.5 seconds and Tannys completion % is 57.9% and his QB rating is 67.5

    Give Tanny a few weapons and fix the offensive line once and for all
    and Tanny would be very very good knocking on the door to elite
