    More power to him, and I can certainly see him getting more money than Seattle is willing to pay. But the article even says he was rated 53rd out of 60. If he gets anything close to top dollar, it shows there is a flaw in the free agency system.

  • Article says $12mil per for Ifedi? :shock:

    Would that take us into 3rd round comp pick territory?

  • 12M per year seems insane to me, that'd put Ifedi at #3 for RT's.

    https://overthecap.com/position/right-tackle/'

    Where he is now is where he belongs (in the 20's), I'd never give him more than 6-7M per year. I have no idea what team would watch tape of Ifedi and think he's their answer at RT for the next 4-5 years.

    He's a hard worker, above average run blocker, and no locker room or personal issues. But he's a liability in pass pro, and has at least 3-4 brain farts a game.

  • Ifedi's PFF rankings don't make any sense when you dig into them.

    He's technically an above average pass blocker when you remove pass blocking efficiency which tends to punish lineman who play with mobile QBs.

    His run blocking grades are below average according to PFF, yet Seattle averages their highest YPC (5.7) behind Ifedi and the next closest is Fluker (4.3). This isn't a sample size issue either. They ran towards Ifedi the 2nd most times of anyone on the team.

    I wouldn't feel great about paying Ifedi $12M. I do think he's worth keeping around if they can keep his number under $8M.

  • Offensive tackles get a good amount of money. Ifedi isn’t great but he’s better than a lot of right tackles, young and the cap is only going up. He’s going to get a good contract.

  • Just read this....from the article...He STINKS....Pro Football Focus ranked Ifedi 53rd out of 60 tackles who played at least 50% of their team's snaps in 2019. PFF gave Ifedi an overall grade of 56.2, a pass blocking grade of 60.3 and a run blocking grade of 55.6. He was also penalized 13 times, tied for fifth-most among tackles.

  • Ifedi's advantage is that there is a dearth of Offensive Linemen in the NFL. Add to that, the Spread system's popularity in the College game, legit prospects are few and far between. So an average OLineman is going to be paid more than his positional value.

    And the typical rookie takes a year or more to get up to speed.

  • He should get close but not top. He was better this year than last . He didn't suck as much. He seems to be healthy to play most weeks ; and this year was all about injuries and conditioning ...something is off in that dept. IMO

  • We previously declined a 5th year option on Ifedi which would have paid him $10.3 million for 2020. That sets the ceiling on his price tag here and if somebody is offering more then we'll take the comp pick instead.

    In his four seasons with the team Ifedi has started 65 games; more than 16 per year due to playoff games. His availability has been outstanding and that's a valuable trait in the NFL.

  • I don't know how anyone could reliably handicap a number for Ifedi.

    I am guessing he could realize a bigger contract in a different offense.

  • I think the team could do better at the position than with Ifedi, otherwise known as the drive killer.

    I did think he improved this season towards the end of the season but he still takes a lot of bad penalties at critical times and has earned his otherwise known as moniker.

    Fant would be cheaper if anyone was stupid enough to overpay Ifedi and I suspect would ultimately do a better job.

    Ifedi's not worth a big contract and any deal he'd make with the team would like be very short term for a lot less than the 5th year option numbers.

    If he gets a big offer in FA I wish him luck wherever else he's going to play.

  • "Fant would be cheaper if anyone was stupid enough to overpay Ifedi and I suspect would ultimately do a better job."

    I believe that. In addition to that if we get a good rookie project that proves out Fant can do a lot of different things, while waiting for Brown to decide he's had enough. Wouldn't surprise me if he couldn't make a fine blocking fullback. Fridge did it...

    Fant is more of a left tackle than he is a RT. Although he can hold his own in pass blocking, he's not nearly the run blocker as Ifedi is, a fatal flaw when you're a run first team like we are. Besides, Fant is a free agent, too.

    Although he still draws a lot of flags, Ifedi didn't commit nearly as many penalties as he has in past years, and he's durable, starting in all 18 games this season. I don't mind moving away from him if he has a contract offer that we're not willing to meet, but we need to have a plan to replace him as we don't currently have a player on the roster that can give us the type of production Ifedi has.

    That worthless penalty magnet should have been traded long ago. He's a total bust, time to send him packing to get numerous penalties each game for another team.

    Knowing that George Fant often plays as a tight end on Iefedi's side may help disambiguate this for you.

    When recording which lineman the RB is running behind, they don't include the tight end. Thus Iefedi's YPC numbers benefit from Fant's run blocking.

  • If we resign Ifedi, the offseason will be an epic failure, no matter what else is done. Committing to him long term would be a gigantic waste of cap dollars for a below average player.

    I pray that the powers that be realizes that.

    I can only hope they have a plan, our injured guys like Simmons and Knox, along with Haynes I hope are ready, we are really thin at Oline that have contracts right now.

  • If someone is offering Ifedi $10M+ per year I would let him walk without any problem. That money can be used so much better than tying it up on him. He is somewhat better than when we drafted him, but not that much better. I honestly would rather use that money on the FA DL options and draft a RT on day two. There will be several very good choices who can step in and do no worse, and probably a lot better than Ifedi.

    He's not better than a lot of RT's, he's worse.

    I mean I’m not a fan of his but this is just wrong, he’s a decent level starter that will be over paid based on the lack of talent at offensive line across the league

  • Try to sign him to a contract with performance incentives, or let him go for the money elsewhere. If he goes for the money, find an adequate run blocker in FA and bring in some young blood via draft. Honestly, the drop off can't be that drastic. Even if replacement A or B can cut dwn on penalties, I see that as a positive.
