If this Spriggs kid is ready to play LT by 2017, a lot of these issues are going to be resolved. I have big hopes for the right tackle, Murphy from Stanford too. I'm not on board for letting Lang or Sitton walk, they both could be offered three year deals. Matthews and Rodgers can take pay cuts to get it done. Also, Tretter is an interesting player to me. Anybody that can snap the ball, pull out and lead the sweep is a player you don't want to let go. He also did an admirable job filling in at Left tackle.

Having quality players on the offensive line is a luxury we should be really happy to have. If I had to make a guess, Bahktiari will be the player being allowed to leave and we get Sitton and Lang on home town discounts. Would really like to see Tretter resigned, but he's good enough to be a starter in the league, and we don't have a spot for him.

Funny how Uncle Ted screwed the pooch on this letting Lang and Sitton both have contract years at the same time.

If they can only re-sign one of the three O-linemen, Lang makes the most sense. The current right guard is a better option than Sitton, having outplayed him last season. Lang is only a year and a half younger, but has 2,341 fewer snaps of wear and tear on him. Because Sitton has the Pro Bowl and three All-Pro second-team honors, there is a decent chance he will end up making more money. The combination of age, cost, career trajectory, and 2015 production makes Lang the more sensible option of the two guards for Green Bay, if it becomes an either-or situation.

Lang also makes more sense than Bakhtiari. Lang is the better player, and because he is a guard and not tackle, will likely cost less.



Makes sense.

Keeping Lang will also keep the right side intact, meaning continuity for all those guys, assuming Bulaga beats out Spriggs this year.

It’s certainly possible that the Green Bay front office re-signs two of the three players. Between Sitton and Bakhtiari, knowing what we know now, Sitton is the better choice. Even though he might not be at his best anymore—and may only play a few more seasons—having a top guard and a very good guard is something the Packers might have difficulties replacing, whereas by next season, Spriggs could already be better than Bakhtiari at tackle. Obviously a lot can change from now until the 2017 offseason, and if Bakhtiari improves his run-blocking or Sitton sees a significant decline, then Bakhtiari could become the second-best option.



Bakhtiari's gonna get PAID. He deserves it too. We'd have been completely F'd without him the past few years. Ted would have had to swing a trade for Marshall Newhouse!

You know, this is probably wrong of me for thinking that as long as we have James Campen any notion of zone blocking our offensive line is always going to leave me wanting more better.

There is no guarantee that Lang will be better than Sitton this year, next year or the following. He may well be but it is not a certainty. Likewise just because GB drafted Spriggs doesn't mean he is the starting LT in 17. Odds favorite it but we still need to see him play more than a few off season practices or PS games before we know anything.
