Simple as that.
With all the work that needs to be done on the O line we cannot afford to put that much money into a player that is not worth that much money
I just don't agree. I think he can be resigned long term much cheaper than his $8.9 million franchise number and using the o-line as a reason to not resign him makes even less sense. We likely won't find a replacement in gree agency which means we have to use a first round pick on a replacement.
