For years, he wasn’t getting much praise from fans, either. I recall quite a few posters using him as a whipping boy.

It will be cheaper to move him and sign a solid LG in free agency. Also allow the team to draft a pass rusher or a qb

And it will make Q that much more expensive to resign.

He was already going to be around $20 million per year. It actually won't be much of a difference for him.

You think he was going to be cheaper as the best G in the NFL?

Like I said, they can do it, but it will most definitely hurt the running game. Big Q is one of the best pulling guards in football. So yeah, they can do it if they have to, but if they can find a left tackle, then it's better off to really play to his strengths.

I don't want to see Nelson at tackle for purely selfish reasons. Nobody knows for sure how good he would be out at tackle. What I know for sure is I will miss watching him pancake and flatten interior linemen, linebackers and db's; especially when he is pulling. It won't happen as often out at tackle.
