More about Centers

In looking at last years twelve play-off teams half of them will most likely not have the same starting center. Using the NFL depth chart the teams predicting they will have the same starting center as they did last year are:

Denver – Ramirez - $1,050,000 – ranked 7th

Kansas City – Hudson - $876,000 - ranked 18th

San Diego – Hardwick $4,416,667 – ranked 14th

Seattle – Unger $6,458,750 – ranked 17th

Carolina - Kalli $8,186,000 – ranked 11th

Philadelphia – Kelce - $6,250,000 – ranked 2nd

The rankings are from the Bleacher report.

So 50% of the playoff teams from last year have lost their starting centers due to either FA or retirement. I will also note that if you put much stock in the B/R only 2 of these teams are returning with a top-ten center. While I think it is important to have the best center you can afford I also think Mack may just be too expensive for most teams – and again not sure what you think of the B/R rankings but a majority of the playoff teams did not have a starting center ranked in the top 10 centers.

Anyway I do not think that Costa is the answer and I have little faith in Holmes and hope to see the Colts bring in someone else to compete for the starting position. Anyone else think that maybe Irsay should start taking Jeff Saturday to an all you can eat buffet – looks like he is only a hundred pounds away from being back in playing weight.
