Ours played for league minimum for two years and was our most consistent and healthy lineman. He deserves to get paid.
He does deserve to get paid, but will any other team really take him? I mean they should, but it was the exact same situation last offseason and nobody offered him anything, that was the only reason he came back here. He seems to be really poorly thought-of by the rest of the league.
