After seeing how far Laremy Tunsil pushed the offensive tackle market this offseason, I believe I underestimated where Brandon Scherff and Joe Thuney could land on new extensions as guards. I am not making huge adjustments, but they should each settle on top of the interior offensive line market.
I originally had Scherff coming in at $0.5 million less per season than Thuney, although with more guaranteed money. With the happenings along the Washington offensive line — specifically, finally trading the other Pro Bowler on it (tackle Trent Williams) and not drafting an offensive lineman until the fourth round in April’s draft — the Redskins may have found themselves in a situation where they may need Scherff more the Scherff needs them. The former No. 5 overall pick could see $15-plus million annually on a new deal in Washington.
