My believe is we don't have any starter other than WR2 that will be replace next season by a draft pick. Smith is weakest link on Oline imo so I draft a OG that will eventually replace him. It says something that we are now able to add quality depth and begin to release players end of bench.
Brisiel is 28 and comes with the heart that Kubiak loves. Just this year he returned after one play on an ankle sprain. He later broke his leg and played quite a while on it (until half time IIRC) then returned to team after couple games. I really wanted Zeitler for right side but he will be gone before we select. I think your opinion of Mike being lesser of two OG is not the opinion of management.
I think Wade will start at least one more season and Brisiel will be re-signed.
