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.

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.

Posted by: SAM I AM | February 26, 2014 at 07:36 PM

ya but we can't get a starter at LT at 19, Z. Martin won't be an NFL left tackle, Starting RT or OG yes...

that is why if Matthews is there at 6 you take him..

what would it take to get to 6 without losing 19?

Wake plus what, next years 1?

dustybottom,

Teddy Bridgewater may take a tumble too. I do not expect it to be further than mid 1st rd though.

Sam YG....Thinking we could get the #6 pick for aging Wake ranks high up there with the most idiotic posts you've made. Just like your call that Sparano would be the most sought after coach.

What are you thinking?

dustybottom are you touching a boy right now. why are you ignoring me?

We might not be able to smell that well but we have Big Trabucos.

I AM SAM I AM NOT YG

Wallyfin

When a LT is drafted 1st rd, he does have day one starter draft grade. He may not be Jake Long year one. But definitely day one starter.

No one drafts a olineman 1st rd to be groomed into a starter.

No Oscar dumincans have the big trabucos. that's why you all ran from cuba instead of fighting for your freedom. Cubans have no trabucos!

Hell, I used to win at Trivia all the time, now Wikipedia has displaced me. Anybody here knows what a Trabuco was?

sam get off the wake thing, no chance falcons ever do that

Wallyfin

I am not going to go back and forth with you, a dummy, on this. The Falcons will give up the 6 for Wake end of discussion DUMMY!

After having the sex that brought you here. Did your mother under go a rape kit?

That was not my experience in DR, SAM. Women there when they saw me naked said, er Diablo, me va a matar!

Dusty

blow me. you are wrong again. Falcons will make that trade

oscar is still trying to impress bloggers with silly things not even he believes. Just like dashi.

Oscar

Stop dreaming the women in DR are still laughing at the thing you think is a pen is. So small its a Vag

Terrible day for taking medication. The same insane idiot's impersonating everyone today. How cute. :)

oscar, are you bigger than a fat girls clito?

Cuban=Mutt

Deserted their homeland instead of fighting for liberty. They were and are not MEN. Fidel is still laughing over 50 years later!

Im out, time to allow the impersonating butt-plug all the room he needs to stink up the joint.

WE KNOW THE REAL SAM I AM

Let's face it, Fidel and Trujillo forever exposed their people as cowardly sheep. It will take both teeny islands a good hundred years to recover, assuming that there genetic makeup has not been altered to pet status.

No SAM I AM/MARCO

just giving you a dose of your own TROLLING medicine. Get a life you are on here too much anyway. Spreading your endless drivel hour after hour, day after day. Same crap every minute of every day. I will torture you every chance I get. Unfortunately I have a life so I cannot do this much. Hopefully others will take up the cause to chase you from this blog!

I have good genes. My older son has a 9" howitzer and my younger one is well on his way to that, or more. Mercy on their women.

NOBODY respects a word you write. Your drivel is old. You have no facts to support you dizzy opinions. The regular REAL DOLFANS cannot stand any of your characters. You should leave or just shut and read what REAL fans post. Then when you learn to treat other bloggers with respect you should come back under a different name.

TRUTH, Sammy's pompous drivel drip is garbage yes, but what about boy child dashi's utter stupidity and naiveté? I mean, here you have an uneducated low wage loser thinking he is more sophisticated than a Haitian cockroach.

We don't use the metric system in the USA Oscar. Im sure they will make some MAN very happy with that little pin ga.

FUNNY mate....that der is some funny Shiite!

Wallyfin

I hoe you learned a lesson with these trolls. They real you in with good convo at first then they turn on you. DONT FEED THE TROLLS BROTHER!

LOOKS LIKE FOOTBALL TALK IS NOT ON THIS BLOG!!!

Nobody can keep up with Daytona here timewise, man. That's unrealistic. The most you can do, and that he hates it thoroughly, is to prove him wrong on some predictions that he made. You got those, Paul?

wallyfin,

you're falling into Bill Ass-spurs trap. He's impersonating and anyone else he can. He a useless demented soul seeking "electronic attention.

Wally...are you fully out of the closet or just hinting with a tiny earring?

So desperate for FB talk that you entertain a troll in Sam and Marco and everytime you will get burned. You cannot feed the trolls brother.

Bill is in Europe you loser. You always blame bill for your trolling nice try though. WE KNOW

I will never forget Daytona going on a rant and insulting everybody in Jon's blog. Once in a while, we have to make YG go on a rant, is entertainment for us and a therapeutic relief for him.

Dr Canosa,

I ran into Paul yesterday before entering the convenience store. Boy, oh boy, was he speaking bad of you.

He said your pay wages are so low, reason why he was outfront panhandling loose change. Is this true Dr. Canosa?

THE REAL SAM I AM

Dr. Canosa

Why did your mother decline the rape kit after sex for you?

Oscar is as much of a Doctor as Bill A is a COP.

Oscar is a Doctor is as funny as SAM I AM being straight!!

However, YG knows Football, although in his rudimentary way.

Bill is in Europe you loser. You always blame bill for your trolling nice try though. WE KNOW

Posted by: TRUTH | February 26, 2014 at 08:20 PM

So you are suggesting there is no internet in Europe?


You have to admit this blog is PROOF the government is successful in dumbing down society to trailer trash

ME thinks there are 2 people in here right now Oscar and SAM both trolling each other....maybe I just sit back and enjoy the ride.

TRUTH IS....like so many of American idiots, of no more value than used toilet paper.

Posted by: Razak | February 26, 2014 at 08:25 PM

I would hope he has better things to do on holiday than be on this blog?

Lookidat, Daytona likes Zach Martin at #19 and A Williams in the 2nd. No pro-Bowlers by any stretch of the imagination.

TRUTH = steaming pile of sht

I could be that, but at least Im not a loser with no life and a RACIST. Have any words of RACIST wisdom for us today? What is this your 20th straight hour on here today?

When some people are bored, they do crossword puzzles or jigsaw puzzles. TRUTH instead tries to get off with his left hand. That's what he calls date night.

Where is my man, odin, so we can talk a bit about contemporary Music.(I need some help there)

I could be that, but at least Im not a loser with no life
