Default Tackles?

Knowing this organization we wont franchise andre. so we will have to draft a T in round 1. So are their any decent late first round prospects?

We will sign him or franchise him. I think we are more likely to Franchise Andre then MJ because I think the price tag for a tackle is lower.

I'm in the boat, if Andre and MJ get to FA with neither signing, the tag is going on MJ and Andre walks. Andre strikes me as te type of guy that wants to play down south where it's warmer and close to home. I wouldntt be surprised if he ended up in the NFC South.

As to who we could get in the first at OT, there's some pretty slim pickins at 21. We would probably be looking at DJ Fluker or Lane Johnson. A very small chance we could look at Barrett Jones to be a RT.

We can't lose both one must be signed and one must at the very least be franchised. If we franchise Andre a late steal may be Reid Fragel who is lean and athletic, as a converted tight end he has quick feet but is still learning the position. A year learning the position at the NFL level and he may be ready to take over for Andre after the tag.

The org has to spend money so either we sign or FT him or sign a replacment. Too bad they didn't pick up that 5th year option a couple years ago.

IMO we need to draft a T anyway, not in the first but one to develop. Xavier Nixon (FLA) and Rick Wagner (WIS) would be mid round guys to keep an eye on.

If we don't re-sign Andre, it'll be because he doesn't want to be here. We have $55,100,000 in cap space, so there's no reason, financially, why he couldn't be re-signed.

That's a point I've made about free agents in the past and too many people fail to realize that these players can sometimes make decisions that aren't based solely on money. If a player doesn't want to be a Bengal, then there's nothing MB can do outside of tagging him to force him to stay.

Shows you don't really know or follow this organization outside of what ESPN tells you.

Early indications are that they will franchise him if a deal cannot be struck. Geno will also likely receive a generous extension.

At worst, franchise tag for Andre. He already was making close to the tag price anyway, so one more year won't hurt. No need to take an early first OT pick.

Plus, MB will offer good salary for a full-time player. Joseph has stated that the offer from the Bengals a couple years ago was very good, but that he left for other reasons. So unless Andre has other issues with the Bengals, he will be offered a good contract and will stay.

You are 100% correct. However, if a team is going to franchise a guy, he needs to determine if he net worth for future contracts can escalate, stay the same or decline (due to injury or performance. In other words, do you want a 1 year guarantee for 10 million or a 4 year guarantee for 32 million?

If team is not going to franchise a player, the player gains huge upper hand (great and good players).
