I'm still trying to understand that one, but it happened and whatever the market says is in fact what the economic reality of a players value is, atleast to one team which is all that really matters.
Well I'm not a capologist. However, until recently Jon Ruynan was considered one of the top RTs. Either they are going to have faith in the knee or they won't. I think Winston is a better pass block than Ruynan ever was in his best years. Erick is also a better run blocker on the second level. I would keep an eye on the Peters situation in Buffalo. Peters is an OLT but they both are young and high end prospects. In an uncapped year the sky would be the limit with Erick. 60 million might look pretty good come 2010 if he walks. What is it worth not to have to start over rebuilding the o-line ?

Erick's Ranking ? He's the best o-lineman we've got. Get the anchors on the end of the line settled you can fill in with marginal talents inside. Erick will never be Joe Thomas. But, he has the shot to be the best right tackle in the league if he keeps progressing. Up to our capologist to figure out what that is worth.

As far as Hutchinson is concerned, appears to me that Shuan Alexander would of been best served to dig into his own pocket and keep Steve with the Hawks. The Seahawks as it turned out choose....poorly.

Beat me to the Steve Hutchinson Part. Walter Jones has looked mortal for the most part and Steve's first season in Minnesota a backup in Baltimore(Chester Taylor) did well for himself suddenly. Shaun Alexander whom I haven't really always cared for; falters.

Far as Erick goes the way the FO chose to deal with getting AJ locked up long term with an intelligent deal will most likely be extended to several core players Ryans, Williams, and whomever else grows into someone you can build around on one side of the ball. I think he's been too solid on the right side to supplant anytime soon so he'll get a fair extension offered.

Not to mention that in 2010, Alex Gibbs may not be here to school whoever we have to bring in as replacement(s).

I dunno if he's here in 2009, let alone 2010 ?
And Winston our best OLineman ? I think Chester is atleast as good and probably more valuable to the Texans due to his versatility.
