Mannys play further solidifies the depth of the Brocos offensive line and this contract projects that production forward. I don't think there are any disillusions in the FO that JD Walton is the best C on this roster. Fans can argue all they want to the degree of Walton's production, and now health, what his value is to this team, but the evidence remains relavent to his status in their eyes. IMHO Walton provides an upgrade in intelligence, physicality, and can hold his own as a pass blocker in this system.
