    I like this move for a late 6th rounder.

    But he’s also got a substantial injury history, especially the last 2 years

    It's a late 6th rounder

    A late 6th rounder? Since we have a few of them, why not?

    On last year of his contract. 6.6M cap hit. (Not sure if the Steelers absorb some of that. I think they eat the 1.7M dead money and we’re on the hook for 4.9M). Stop gap at RT this year I’m sure. (Just turned 31). Solid trade if he can stay healthy. (The if he can stay healthy thing seems to be with all of our OL)

    I want to get excited about this move but definitely seems past his prime with his age and the injuries...Here’s hoping he ends up worth more than a 6th rounder.

    I like it, get him for 1yr $4.9, we can probably do an "1y extension" that converts that to all bonus to spread it out if needed. I think he's a better stopgap at RT then Barksdale would be until we see what we have in Cunningham.

    He'll cost the Cards $4.9M.

    You have to be concerned with his injury history but a 1 year deal at a decent price all for a late pick I think it is a reasonable gamble

    wouldn`t it just have been smarter to re-sign Barksdale? Might have been cheaper.

    IF (a big IF) he can give us 12+ games and Korey Cunningham (or a mid-round draftee) can continue to develop he is a good bridge guy at the position.

    They may sign him back too. You never know.
