It’s a lot of money, but Hudson with Oakland just got about 10 a year. Going rate for elite interior linemen now. I’d check in on Trevathan now, see if he’d take something team friendly for maybe 2 more years. Then earmark money for EJax.

That's a lot of bread.

Let’s face it. He’s one of the best young G’s in the league. Glad we locked him up.

Outstanding. One less thing to worry about and it makes other extension situations like Eddie Jackson clearer. I almost wonder if this doesn't mean that Kyle Long is gone after this season. Works for me.

It’s not a bad deal. Guy is tenth highest paid guard in the league, I believe.

There is always a lot of talk about QB’s, and their dislike for having the front of the pocket collapsed by the defense. Great OG’s are invaluable in allowing your offense the ability to execute the plays that they want to. The front three of Whitehair-Daniels-Long are going to be a formidable force.

It'd be 9th in average per year if all the new money started now. If it is tacked onto his current deal its even better and there's time for others to go above that in the short term, let alone the long term.

I'm pretty happy with that! Looking forward to seeing the details as it might be even better than at first glance.
