I'm told Russell Okung has agreed to go the #Chargers on a 4-year deal for $53M. Guaranteed $25M

How long before the Bolts lose draft picks for their early interactions with Okung ?

I was hoping with how poorly he played most of last year, we'd be able to get him on the cheaper side.

Nope.

It depends on if there's actual proof. If it's just a rumor (like it was rumor that we would be signing Franklin a few years ago), then I think they will be fine.

I would like to see how "guaranteed" that $25 million is. Ed Maguire usually does a great job of putting us in good spots.

Yeah, I'm taking some deep breaths until more of the structure of the contract is available.

Apparently only 13 Mill guaranteed to what amounts his 1st year, one year rental if he sucks if he is good he can stay and be cut every year, not that bad all in all

Hopefully now we can put to bed the notion of reaching for a tackle at 7.

Interesting to see what happens with Dunlap. Have to believe he'd be better at RT than Barksdale. Then Joe could be the swing tackle. No real downside to keeping Dunlap if he restructures

A few things, I dont know much about Okung, but I've read posts that he'd be a minor upgrade over Dunlap. Yet, now the reactions are of excitement. What our realistic expectations for Okung.

What do we do with Dunlap? I think we eat 3-4 mill if we let him go...but save 5? dont know the exact #s.

I wonder if we could still be in play for another lineman: Mangold may not require too much and he could be a stop gap at center for 1-2 years, or maybe we draft one.
