Default Guess It's Official (Orlando Franklin)

Local news announced that in today's OTA, Franklin was moved over to LG. He says he's not pissed about it. As long as he's in the top five, he says he's fine with it.

Emmanuel Sanders says the extra practice with Peyton is fine with him. He says that's how you win on Sundays.

I'm too lazy to check. But I would assume elite guards make as much or more than right tackles on the open market. He's smart not to object in his contract year. Here's hoping he's a monster inside.

I thought this was confirmed a month ago when someone posted a vague twitter post about how he was pissed.

Then there was the tweet where he said "I'm playing left guard". That one seemed to sort of confirm it too.

Tackles make more.

Left tackles, usually yes. Right tackles, more in line with top guards. I was surprised myself looking at the top salaries, many guards on the list.

Good point considering Franklins was a RT.

I didn't think they defined the position though. I could be wrong, I have been wrong before...

Yeah. I don't remember it being definite. Now it is.

It's not official until he starts the first game there. We'll spend the offseason and preseason playing different guys at different positions until we find the best lineup. I look forward to the confused posts when Franklin is seen taking RT snaps for a day in training camp.

Yes, which I think was Goblin's core point. He will get paid if he plays well, whether it's at RT or guard

There's no reason for him to be mad. Right tackle to left guard isn't a step down.

That's what I figured. Zane Beatles, 5 years, 30, 13 in g-money. Michael Oher, 4 years, 20, 9.5 g-money. Nuff said.

Oh, you sure its "fine with you" Emanuel? We are all super concerned.

Im sure this is one hell of a relief for our quarterback that hes not working you too hard.

He was talking about the extra reps outside of regular practice.

Love the Omane. It's where I come to get hairs split and innocuous remarks dissected.

Clady / Franklin / Ramirez / Vasquez / Clark ---> probably the best potential Bronco offensive line in a while.

It all depends though, elite RT's who teams feel can move over to LT get paid more than guards in FA. But that is so rare of a occasion that it almost never happens.

Top OG's make around the same as RT's or lower LT's as many have already said in previous posts.
If Franklin takes to the position and fully embraces then we might have a very special OG on our hands.
