You asked, what it would take to replace those 3 starters ( I assumed on the open market). Reality is Jones or Quess will replace Wade Smith, however that is not a GUARANTEE that is equal or better talent. It could be also be a Newton redo. To replace a LG w/ 1000 starts who grades out better than Wade Smith will cost $3-$4 million per year. Soliai and Spikes next contracts will be closer to $3-$5 million per year. $1 mil per year gets you Mays or Sharpton.
What else is perfectly clear is that BASIC MATH is NOT one of your stronger subjects.
$3.5 each for Soliai and Spikes is $7 mil which is insignificantly off my estimate of $6 mil for their total which is also within your estimated range and is nowhere near your $10-12 mil, wait how did that go...MINIMUM of your original estimate. Sorry you don't get to just ignore the Texans having already planned for Smith's replacement.
Your propensity for exaggeration is laid bare.
