Does it matter? He's going to be last on the depth chart if he makes the team.

Damn, Snyder is tossing around c-notes like they're confetti.

Somehow he must think this solves all the problems on the right side, so he and Vinny can focus on drafting a skill position player.

The madness never ends.....

im guessing hell compete for the RT spot since we brought in Dockery for depth at guard. He's got a chance to start at RT but the fact that hes played both tackle and guard only helps. I've heard its only a one year deal which is good. We need more bodies on the line. I dont expect him to be a starter at either but we need depth. This doesnt rule out drafting Smith or Oher but it does help if both are off the board which I think is likely to be the case. Lets go Maualuga!!!

We tried him at OG and RT......he sucked equally bad at both. Man, what a waste of talent.

no he wasn't worth the top 5 money you were paying him and he had an injury as well but we need bodies and so for a one year cheap deal id say hes worth a shot at providing some depth. im not expecting a saviour here for our line but im happy with the signing.

Mike Williams the WR would probably've been better OL depth.

I just read an article about his comeback attempt and I thought, pshh..good luck buddy. Maybe Charles Rodgers and you can share an agent or something but good for him, he's got his shot. The article said that he's down to his playing weight but he's planning on losing another 15-20. In fact here's the article

supposedly its 1 year at vet min. you guys are laughing like we paid him some millions of dollars. he might not even make the squad and if he does then id say its worth the small price tag.
