8. New premium positions: The biggest change in free agency is how priorities will change in the new era of new money. The cap is $109 million this year and expected to go up $7 million a year over the next couple of seasons. Free agency has taught us the prime money positions are quarterback, cornerback, wide receiver, defensive end and left tackle. The positions devalued have been guard, safety, fullback and tight end. Because teams don't like to overpay guards and safeties, those will be the positions of impact -- believe it or not -- in this new era of free agency. Guard Steve Hutchinson got $7 million to go to Minnesota. Eric Steinbach of the Bengals, Kris Dielman of the Chargers and Derrick Dockery of the Redskins are considered guards who could have an impact on an offensive line. Also watch for centers Andre Gurode (Cowboys) and Shaun O'Hara (Giants) to stay with their teams for around $4 million a year in deals that could get done in the next two weeks.

Kris Dielman would be a tremendous signing for our OL. It's a shame he's not a LT though.
