There is no denying the man has talent and would be a serious upgrade. But I agree, no sense in Miami spending a quality draft pick on a 32 year old lineman that wants too much money. I'd much rather see Miami take a quality offensive guard in the early rounds.
As far as I'm concerned, premium money should only be appropriated for premium positions ..... not guards.
I agree, you pay elite quarterbacks, left tackles, and pass rushers the big money. On a rare occasion, you pay a shutdown cornerback or #1 receiver, but it's rare that those positions pan out when big money is thrown at them so you have to be extra careful when investing. Other than that, you offer fair market value for other positions and you have to be prepared to re-load in the draft every year and learn to live with compensatory picks every now and then.
