Loadholt certainly not worth being tagged...not like he's a Pro Bowl LT or anything...but he should still see a good payday.
Anyone have any numbers on what the top RTs in the league are being paid?

Fullback key to Adrian Peterson's success - NFC North Blog - ESPNQuote:
For years, Adrian Peterson has insisted he would rather run out of a single-back set rather than follow a traditional lead blocker. As recently as Thursday, the Minnesota Vikings tailback said: "My preference is to be back there myself."
I hope the team is working hard to get Allen to restructure along with Williams and Winfield. These three guys are close to 32 million in cap space, with Allen taking up 17 million alone.
Rework them deals and the team would have plenty of money to sign a guy like Wallace and still have enough coin to get Harvin locked up long term.
Since coming on board, the only draft picks of ours that hit FA starting in 2007 that we've been able to resign in those 6 years, that are still with the team today, are AD, Greenway, Robison, Sullivan, Guion & Burton.
The rest of our draft picks that hit FA either signed elsewhere, were cut or weren't resigned.
