The left tackle for 27 years of age, had since February 20 last franchise player tag, which the directive is placed just three weeks after winning the Super Bowl XLIII. After the contract for four years, no longer bear such a designation.

For that reason, had initially accepted a salary of $ 8.45 million for 2009. Before the 2008 campaign, was named "player of transition (" Transition pleasure ") and paid $ 6.9 million even though it was not the holder. However, he won the post after it was Marvel Smith missed most of the season by a back injury.
