Left Tackle Free Agents (with verbal commitments?)

by James Fedewa 3/9/14

Pre-Free Agency begins on Tuesday (3/11/14) but this weekend is open and “talks” can start with all pending free agents and any NFL Team. It is an open collusion period.  Rumors are swirling of potential acquisitions, and the The Baltimore Sun is posting that several of the top tier left tackles have already reached agreements with new teams.

  1. The Miami Dolphins are expected to sign Kansas City Chiefs left tackle Branden Albert for an average of $9.5 million per year.
  2. The Oakland Raiders are in negotiations with St. Louis Rams Tackle/Guard Rodger Saffold for about $8 million per year, but Tampa Bay is in the bidding too.
  3. The Arizona Cardinals are expected to sign Oakland Raiders left tackle Jared Veldheer for around $7 to $7.5 million per year.
  4. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are expected to sign Cincinnati Bengals offensive tackle Anthony Collins for about $6.5 to $7 million per year (if Collins does not resign with Cincinnati)

Looks San Diego will rely on left tackle King Dunlap (or a rookie draft pick) for 2014.
