Actually, dumping Starks makes me think Adams is all the more important as he was an all-pro LT. I highly doubt they start Gilbert at LT as a rookie, especially at LT and without OTAs. He's a rookie who has yet to look at the playbook ... not someone you want protecting your franchise QB's blindside. So if they think Adams can be average or slightly above average at his natural position, $5M is below average pay for a starting LT ... then you have value for your money at the position. I really think we saw an upgrade from Colon to Adams at RT last year. Makes me think that Adams is important and maybe Colon is less so.
