Yes. Andre Smith and Levitre would solve the O line problem and we can replace Gaither in the draft. That would be a great off season.

i'm intrigued by long, but intrigue is all. he'd cripple our cap. he's also coming off a down year. odd for a player of his caliber, especially given it is/was a contract year for him.

i'd be happy with him, but he's gonna want $12mil/year. pass.

And he'll probably get about 8-9.

But the reason for his struggles have been physical (his knees). That's why it hasn't really mattered that it's a contract year for him.

I would, but I find it unrealistic. But he is highlighted in my Free Agency Preview thread. I think Gosder Cherilus is a more likely option. And he might actually be the smarter choice. For as good as Andre Smith has been this season, he's the type of player I worry about paying big money. I question whether or not his work ethic will suffer.

He is not going to come with any value and has question marks.

He has always struggled with speed which the broncos have. Would rather see us draft a tackle and let him play the right side. If Gaither ends up pulling a Gaither swing him over.

Sign Long on a short-term deal, unlike the Gaither one.

Interesting fact: We could have signed Jake Long had we not wasted money on Gaither and Meachem.
