It is a business, Lang will have two surgeries this off season.
I'm not saying don't sign him and I am not saying it would be stupid to not sign him.
This has nothing to do with Sitton, it has everything to do with what Lang at his age and with his injuries can give a team, any team, and how much they are willing to sign him for.
Best thing for both sides is to let him hit FA and see what the market is.
Because until the outcome of his surgeries is known you don't make any offers or talk contracts It would be stupid to do so.
They have multiple players that could take his place, I don't put Tretter high on the list because of injuries, he can't stay on the field.
Patrick is one of the best OG prospects I have saw in a while. I also wonder about Murphy making the move to guard he would be a better fit at guard.
And no not Spriggs to guard, he is a tackle and they have no one to replace him as swing tackle.
And yes you can draft someone, just look for non prototypical sized OT's in the draft and you might see one of the picks for the 2017 draft.
