    Browns can easily outbid the Texans, so if it’s for the money that’ll be where the honey pot is.

    Like when they didn't want to pay Brandon Books so they signed Jeff Allen and Tony Bergstrom.

    Oh we already had Nate Solder on our roster and Bergstrom is top rated at his position?

    They still have a ton of space. More than the Texans.

    Outside of his rookie season and bicep tear in 2015, Solder has played in all 16 or missed just 1 game in his other 5 seasons. But yes Solder is not an elite tackle by any means but the best one currently on the market.

    I believe a blocking dummy may be better than what we have.

    Of course. A blocking dummy is always better than dummies blocking.

    Of course he didn’t.

    He’s like... I’m not that good. Seriously.

    Pats don't' even stress it. Like we know he's lower tier, let's act interested for now.

    I wont be too upset if they went Fulton, Fleming, And Pugh. And let the Browns have Solder.

    I'm hoping for a nnamdi asomugha type of deal. Where the top guy is taking his time negotiating and the Texans go in to get the 2nd guy for cheaper and have more $$ to get more pieces. Even if they just get Fleming ($10) and Fulton($8) and it gives them money for Trumaine ($15) and Barnett ($10). That's $43 mil. Maybe even cheaper. Your starters at the line are Fleming, Davenport, Martin, Fulton, and Allen. Secondary is Trumaine, Johnson, Barnett, and Hal. I'll be okay with that.
