Seahawks extend Duane Brown

For the past couple of seasons offensive line has been the defined weakness for the Seattle Seahawks. Last season they made a deal to try and anchor that line a little bit in the form of Duane Brown.

Yesterday they gave him a three-year contract extension worth $36.5 million, with $16 million being guaranteed. He is still a solid player and this contract really isn’t too expensive so it makes sense. Now what will they end up doing with Earl Thomas?

Pair of offensive lineman suffer injuries

Panthers right tackle Daryl Williams was forced to leave practice yesterday with what ended up being a dislocated right patella tendon and a tear of the medial collateral ligament in his right knee. The team hasn’t announced a timetable for his return yet, but this is a very concerning injury if you’re a Panthers fan.

The other offensive lineman that had to leave practice yesterday was Steelers guard Ramon Foster. His injury didn’t turn out to be too serious as it turned out to just be a hyperextended right knee. It’s being reported that he’ll only miss 4-5 weeks with the injury, which gives him a timetable of possibly being ready for opening day.
