I agree and it’s ridiculous.

We will see. It isn’t certain that CK was blackballed. He may have just asked for too much money and wouldn’t lower his ask.

It isn’t? Because the owners didn’t release a statement saying “we did not blackball Colin”?

Earl Thomas for Marcus Gilbert.

Thomas Age 28, Gilbert 29

Thomas under contract for one year at 10M. Gilbert under contract for two years at $7.3M & $6.6M

You'd have to cut Mike Mitchell and sign Hubbard to be your starter for the time being, with Feiler and Hawkins behind him.

You'd have a shot to extend Thomas, especially if the Bell contract is done.

Seattle might take this deal... Gilbert would be their best OL and Thomas wants out.


Do you pull the trigger?



I dont think I would compromise our O-line at this point in Ben's career. Hubbard is a great guy to have for depth - he becomes a starter and next man up becomes an uncertainty.

Hubbard isn't under contract.

No.

I don’t make a solid unit weaker to strengthen the weaker unit. One injury or two and all of a sudden the oline goes from a strength to a weakness.

And one blown block could end the season.

Draft a safety early or better yet, go spend some $$$ and bring one in.

Is there something written in the team bylaws that says we can never make a splash FA signing?

Worry about the cap after Ben retires which shouldn’t be long.

Only if we could trade HC's as well.

I do it last week B2B. Hubbard is going to be a lot cheaper than Gilbert and he's shown he can start at RT and play just as well. The posts about upsetting a solid OLine is a bit too conservative living in your fears If You Will. Hubbard has been a part of the OLine for at least 3-4 years and has proven himself starter material. No loss with Gilbert moving on. Besides it seems to me Gilbert has become more injured as he ages. Best Of All..., Good bye Mitchell hello Thomas!
