Need a quality left tackle in free agency? You’re already too late

Free agency began at 4:00 p.m. EST on Tuesday, and by 4:15 the top four free-agent left tackles were off the market.

They played a giant, expensive, hilarious game of musical chairs.

The Miami Dolphins signed Branden Albert instants after the start of free agency for five years and $ 46 million.

Moments later, the Arizona Cardinals locked up Jared Veldheer for five years and $ 35 million.

The Oakland Raiders, having lost Veldheer, signed Rodger Saffold to a contract. For a mind-blowing five years and $ 42.5 million.

And it appeared that the Baltimore Ravens, having seen the carnage in the market, found a way to lock up Eugene Monroe. Terms were not immediately available.

Fifteen minutes, four signings, more than $ 120 million dollars worth of left tackles gone. Wow.

The biggest losers in this, other than the Chiefs (who lost Albert), are the Raiders. What were they thinking? Saffold was benched as a left tackle in St. Louis and went for more money than Veldheer. And they have him playing guard, by some reports. Just … wow.

If you throw in the signings of guards Shaun Lauvao (Washington Redskins) and Zan Beadles (Jacksonville Jaguars), it’s clear that the big men are the big winners in the first hour of free agency.
