Couple of Linemen to Look into

From Lenny P:
"In terms of base salaries, Anderson is owed $3.15 million (for 2008), $2.7 million (2009), $3.2 million (2010) and $3.45 million (2011). But he is also due a $2 million roster bonus on Jan. 15, and the clock is ticking loudly on that money. If Cincinnati opts not to pay the bonus, Anderson becomes an unrestricted free agent and probably will sign elsewhere. If the Bengals pay the bonus, the club is essentially gambling that Anderson will be healthy in '08 and return to his previous form. Anderson does not want to retire and prefers to continue, and mostly likely finish, his career with the only team for which he's ever played.

The man who replaced Anderson for much of this season, four-year veteran Stacy Andrews, is eligible for unrestricted free agency. The younger brother of Philadelphia standout right guard Shawn Andrews, Stacy Andrews' value is tough to gauge because he has started only 13 games in four seasons. But there are a considerable number of teams who view the 26-year-old Andrews, despite his lack of starting experience, as a star-in-the-making with possible Pro Bowl potential. The former University of Mississippi standout, a fourth-round pick in the 2004 draft, is big and quick-footed and has played both guard and tackle. It may take more than just a modest investment in the free-agent market to land him. Or for the Bengals to re-sign him. And those factors may enter into Cincinnati management's decision on Anderson's future with the team. "

If Anderson is not re-upped, what are the thoughts on signing him to a modest (1M/year ish) salary with an eye towards depth. Yes, I know it's signing age to back up age but, hell, get enough old guys and we can run them in and out for each other.

As for Stacy Andrews, if he is as good as LP makes him out to be, I would love to sign a quality young lineman for "more than just a modest investment".

Also Mods: Are we going to have a forum for Free Agency/Draft threads or are is the locker appropriate?

Re: Couple of Linemen to Look into

After the NFL season is complete, we'll have the usual NFL Draft Central forum.

(unless Matty chooses to launch it earlier)

Re: Couple of Linemen to Look into

stacy andrews sounds better for the long term, but i really don't know enough about him to make any judgement on his talent.
