If you wouldn't retain, who do you replace him with?
^actual question not rhetorical
He'll get more than $8.7 mill from Houston to replace Seantrel Henderson...Cleveland to replace Chris Hubbard.Again, Dolphins have very little on the books after this year. James is nowhere near elite, but he is solid and irreplaceable. He also improved his run blocking this last year.
The way things are these days, if you have a mediocre OT you damn well better keep him, because the alternative could very well be catastrophic.
8.7 mil a year may sound ridiculous for an average RT, but this is today's NFL, not yesterdays. Teams living in yesterday end up in a dungeon.
Dolphins need to implement an entirely new interior OL, now is definitely not the time to let a bona fide starter at RT just go into free agency.
Transition tag is absolutely in play with James.
