Thomas, Bitonio, Tretter, Zeitler, Pasztor

That is a nice but expensive line.  I would take it though.  They still need t o sign Pasztor though right?

Yep....but for how long....by the time they get a qb and groom him those guys will be long gone. I feel like this is in preparation of taking care of a young qb and getting the running game going. They have neglected their defense though.

Yep, except that they don't know if the guy they protect is any good enough. :) 

 

Go on, take the money and run, woohoohoo...Steve Miller Band was right. :)

It could take a while. But, I just wish we could say that we had one of the best lines in the game with Andrew in his prime...

You never know.  They might trade for Jimmy G or draft a guy that pans out.  They have a mediocre RB and only one real threat at WR.  They need more offensive and defensive help than just a stout o-line.

They do still have a lot of picks in this draft

12 mil per year is a reach but the Browns could afford that. I think he was legitimately worth maybe 10 mil. Maybe we can snag T.J. Lang? I still think it's ridiculous our O-line has been below average for so many years straight.

There is always one or two teams that completely destroys the realistic worth of positional players every Free Agency period.  Here is a perfect example of it, that is LT money and you spend it on a Guard?  Now Guard and Tackle prices will be driven higher because of this.  It is the never ending cycle of garbage teams way overspending to get top FA's, because they can't get them otherwise, and continuously redefining positional worth.  12 million for a Guard....geez!

Yep...they need LOTS of help....but if you are going to build somewhere than on the OL is as good as any. Any young qb would likely have the chance to have some extra time to sit in the pocket and hopefully a strong run game....give them time to develop. Money has to go somewhere I suppose....they were only like 100 million under the cap.
