    That statement is a bit misleading (I'm blaming Foxsports, not you). The two lineman could get $100M over the life of their contracts but not in any single season's cap dollars. Still, it's an expensive line.

    Okay. So MAYBE an LT could be worth 7 1/2 mil per.
    (Though i doubt it.)

    For several weeks now ... hoping that the Vikes might join the Leion auction ...
    folks here have been ridiculing the Minnesota front office.

    Here we learn that they signed one of their OLs to a contract
    which becomes FULLY GUARANTEED
    if they sign any other OL at greater cap cost !

    Q.E.D.
