    We do need to extend Karras.

    I believe Thuney is rated as the Number 1 or 2 interior OL guy (there are several OTs who will get gobs of cash). along with Sherrif (sp?).

    If the contracts get crazy for OL (they might not for guards), there might be a shot, but I doubt it. They could franchise him for just over 16m, but that's a helluva cap hit (undoable if Brady does come back, I think).

    Froholdt is powerful and plays mean. Or maybe they find a tackle and kick Wynn inside. I doubt they're going to pay 2 guards huge money and Mason ain't going anywhere.

    Hope he stays, doubt it strongly.

    Although I’m hopeful about Froholdt, I haven’t seen him play 1 down in the NFL.

    For me, the bottom line is that this is a very normal situation, and a reasonable transition. We need to use midlevel draft choices for backups or potential future starters. We need to re-sign one of our 2019 starters (presumably Karras) And if Cannon goes, we'll use his cap money to sign someone else. The real cost is the cap money for Karras and a couple of draft picks.

    OT: Wynn, Cannon (or replacement using his cap money)
    backups: probably a free agent plus a draft choice to compete with Newhouse, Cunningham and Cajuste

    OG: Froholdt, Mason
    C: Andrews (or Karras)

    G/C backups: Karras, draftee or two
    Obviously, we might need a replacement if Karras won't sign

    If Brady goes extend Thuney so that the next QB let’s say Stidham can have a decent O line.
