Peters signs extension, affects LT market

Left tackles are going to be a big deal in the next couple of weeks as teams either lock up the good ones they have before the start of free agency March 11 or chase the best ones on the market for what is sure to be a lucrative amount of money.

Today the left tackle picture came into clearer focus when the Eagles signed Jason Peters to a four-year extension worth $41.3 million with $19.5 million of that guaranteed, according to ESPN.

Getting  the ol' trusty calculator and ... that averages out to $10.35 million per year.

And there you have the starting point the coming free agent tackles will shoot for and try to surpass. The reason that is the aiming point is they will argue Peters signed an extension with a year left on his contract. They will say he took less money for the security of staying with his current team.

They will say that players are worth more once they hit the open market.

Obviously, teams may counter that some of the tackles in free agency aren't nearly as good as Peters. And the agents will counter that most of the free agent tackles are younger than the 32-year-old Peters.

The point is the back and forth will still center around the $10 million a year and $20 million guaranteed mark.

That's what Branden Albert, Eugene Monroe, Jared Veldheer, Anthony Collins and others will be aiming for at the beginning.

That, by the way, assumes any of them reach free agency. Why is that a question?

In recent days there have been numerous reports about the salary cap rising. First the report it was going to $130 million. Then a report it was going to $132 million. Lately some media outlets are suggesting the cap number will be higher than $132 million.

And with each reported rise, if true, the chances teams keep their outstanding left tackles increase. Suddenly the cap-strapped Baltimore Ravens may have more of a chance of keeping both Monroe and tight end Dennis Pitta.

Suddenly, the Chiefs may be able to rethink the idea of keeping Albert.

The next two weeks should be interesting.

agree deal wake if value is right

DustyBottoms

Falcons projected to go after a pass rusher at #6. We need to be on the horn with them to negotiate a Wake trade.

Wake has 3-4 really good seasons left. Falcons have enough pieces already on their team to compete for a SB within the next 3-4yrs. So for them, a pass rusher like Wake, solidifies that.

At least with Wake, they know exactly what they are getting. They are projected to take Kalil Mack(olb/de) in the draft. Wake is more of a certainty.

Pass rush is Falcons greatest need.

007 is Marco folks be careful. She lures you in. much like Samantha I Am

dusty please talk with me puhhhleeeeessseeeeee?

no chance they give up pick number 6 for wake, zero.

I sit in my crappy stained underwear all day long. I have no life so I am here 18-20 hrs a day 7 days per week. I call everybody names that disagrees with what I write because SAM I AM and I know all. If I write it. it is as if God burnt it into a scroll!

They need a great pass rusher, not the #6 pick. This is a team that nearly made it to the SB in 2012. Love it or leave it, Wake is their best answer.

Outside of trading up for Clowney, but it would cost them a huge ransom.

I am here to talk football people. I warn about the trolls Marco and Sam and do what you want with that information. It appears Sam/Marco just got caught above. Forgot to change the name TROLL?

Nope, QB is their greatest needs. Ryan has no more upside and he average at best.

Someone here(Bill Assparger) is really off the meds today. :)

Posted by: dusty bottoms | February 26, 2014 at 05:34 PM


Actually that would be a better trade for Falcons than Fins...they would get 2 really great players in round 1 while we would loose one just to move up...don't like it..

now if we traded him straight up for a 1 or a 2 maybe...

Posted by: history buff | February 26, 2014 at 06:04 PM

don't agree, had he won in Europe and Russia he would have stopped for a while to rebuild his military...
he would eventually attack the rest of the world..

Now all the free countries are being populated and attacked by Islams and they boldly state they will not stop until the world is Islamic.

Politically correct is for losers. We should take over South America, then move on one by one to the other continents. We can take over the world if 5 years. We have the advanced technology nobody else even knows about, don't fool yourselves.

Let's give Hickey a chance here. I am sure he has a Plan A, B, C and D in place for the OL. If we can score a solid LT in FA, most of the mocks I am seeing have Zack Martin falling to us at 19. He played OT in college but most everything I am reading says he would excel at G. If that's the case plug him in between a solid LT and Pouncey and he should do well. The right side of the line I don't know. I would like to believe there will be a solid RG or RT in the 2nd or 3rd round. We would have to find someone else in FA. However, my concern here is as bad as we need to fix the OL, how do you pass on a stud that possibly falls to 19 that doesn't play OL?

UH?

If our #3 overall pick(Jordan) is not ready to start and be a DOMINANT PLAYER right now. We may as well cut his ass right now today.

We would be clearing the way for him to now show he can be that dominant player alongside Vernon. Plus, GREAT INHANCING what we would be able to do in the draft.

1. Draft any LT outside of Greg Robinson

OR BPA AT #6

1. Sammy Watkins
2. Mike Evans
3. Justin Gilbert
4. Eric Ebron

Even more. So, we're actually adding a great player in the draft with potential to be pro bowler their 1ST SEASON. Do you now see the math?

Wallyfin,

That's what I posted first time. Work out a trade with Falcons for the 6th pick straight up. They're projected to use it on a pass rusher anyway.

Actually, if the Falcons would do a Wake for their 6th pick deal, that would give us the #6 and still keep our #19. Very unlikely to happen, but, would be a total coup for us. :)

Reflect on this dolphans:

Dickey in Spanish means pinguilla

Coincidence. I think not

If we had the #6 and #19 pick, I would go BPA with the #6, and oline with the #19.

No Henry, I use Denture Bond, with heavy beard and bushy mustache.

Posted by: SAM I AM | February 26, 2014 at 07:04 PM

totally agree,

Maybe we could trade positions in round 1 and 2 picks for him.

like CJ Mosley and Z. Martin

You can't be serious. a #6 for over 30 Wake? No way, Jose..that is dreaming. Wake gets a 2nd round pick at best.

Sign McKinney for one year so the Dolphins can focus on the other dire needs on the Offensive Line!

If we had the #6 and #19 pick, I would go BPA with the #6, and oline with the #19.

Posted by: SAM I AM | February 26, 2014 at 07:05 PM

or Jake Matthews and Z, Martin both day one starters o-line fixed..

or Jake Matthews and HAHA DIX or Aaron Donald

See Sam now you got me wanting that # 6 pick along with 19..

maybe Wake and Round 2 pick for # 6....


then the possibilities are amazing...

IT'S THE QB STUPID eH?

wallyfin

If we had the #6 and #19, my #6 pick would be one of these 3 players

1. Sammy Watkins wr
2. Justin Gilbert cb
3. Eric Ebron

Then, #19 on LT, if we didn't sign the top fa LT.

At least the pee lady boy moved on to perfume.

Posted by: I smell better than you do | February 26, 2014 at 07:33 PM

hey mate you are a good write. your vocabulary and sentence structure are exquisite.

It will be Manziel, then Jake Matthews followed by the Clown man then Sammy Watkins. That combination is 6/5 right now at LV. btw, CJ Mosley does not belong in the top ten.

Manziel 3rd round talent don't believe the hype!!

and he is better than Tannhill just ask DawnJoe

Manziel? Are you that gullible oscar? He is a huge gamble, Clowney is a rare freak of nature.

manziel is dropping quickly he def wont go 1 to obrien

Wallyfin

Falcons pegged at taking a pass rusher #6(Kalil Mack). So Falcons maybe very interested in trading down anyway. It would be Hickey's job to convince them to trade the #6 pick for Wake instead.

Like you said, I would even throw in a 2nd rd pick too. this year's or 2015's 2nd rd pick. If they take 2015's 2nd rd pick, we keep this year's 2nd r pick too.

Clowney are you kiddin he had a horrible last year in college and then he blew it at the combine.

Oscar

you are correct. I do not see CJ Mosely going top 10 either. Somewhere between 12 and 17, maybe?

Walter Camp has him 17 to the Ravens.

SAM I AM................WE KNOW YOUR A RACIST

I have a gift for focusing at College Players in a Game (not the highlights) and in 10 seconds determining who is going to be HOF, Allpro, proBowler or simply sukkk. I will put this Ability of mine at the service of the Miami Dolphins, here, gratis, in Armando's Blog, now.
