I understand that some rankings have him very highly rated but my point is why overpay for him? Is he worth the risk while we have others who'll need the $$ in the next yr or two? I'd argue that although he wasn't the best RT, he did play his best when in a contract yr. If we guarantee him $20mill and he breaks another foot cause he came to camp at 370, we're in serious trouble.
I don't think the dropoff from Dre to Collins is that much. I could be wrong. This isn't a Jon Joseph situation where the Bengals are lowballing a pro Bowler in demand. Every GM in the league has reservations about sinking big money into this guy. It's not just Mike Brown
