I don't follow too much the contracts by position, I think Haynesworth got around $100 million. I don't know how many years it was for.

Harder to take the year off before you hit free agency as an interior lineman than it was for a recent Steelers WR

Has to be happy there and the team must value his services too. They signed him before allowing other teams to get in his head with counter offers. We'll have to deal with his azz twice/yr for the next 5 yrs.

He's definitely at the top of his game. We're going to have to get our game together to beat that front line they've got. We can do it though, we had them pretty good in that second game last year. It's going to be a tough fight though.
