Is Vlad an upgrade? I would say definitely in the running game.
Slauson is an average lineman, I don't care if his feelings are hurt.
Watch what BB does in New England, the best play always & if you ***** about it you'll find yourself on the bench more often than not.
Sure, upgrade when possible but don't burn your bridges. Slauson would make a decent starter next season or a great depth off the bench. Yet after the way he's been treated he's likely gone. So now the team has a gaping hole to fill for Slauson's position (not to mention Moore leaving as well).
It's stupid to chase away competent players making reasonable salaries (especially one who knows your system and has played well with the rest of the line for multiple seasons).
