Awesome. Honestly, the sooner the better for these guys because their price will only go up. Not only because they are getting better but if you look around the league at the salaries compared to 2-3 years ago they have skyrocketed. Look at Staley... seemed crazy to keep extending him but he got a 6 year 28 million dollar deal which is about half of what he would get now. Not many pro bowl LT's at 4.5 a year. Hopefully more guys to follow... I love having a front office that knows what they are doing. Don't have to wonder if they are going to sign the right guy. Don't have to worry about them signing 1 year wonders like so many other teams.
Side note with the new cba you can't re-sign a rookie until after 3 years so crabtree and iupati are eligible and Kap/Aldon/Culliver/Hunter/Miller aren't until after this season. I'm not so sure we see Iupati. Might have had to choose between those 2 and RT is probably harder to find than a LG. Heck, we could probably move Boone to LG down the road... easier to find a RG than LG. We will see though. As for crabtree wouldn't mind an extension but I think he will want too much. With Kap he should be able to make the receivers look better than they are. Not sure I want to give Crabtree 8-10 mil a year yet.
