  • O-Line Situation

    It looks like we won't be adding any Free Agents to the line, and instead it will be a case of letting the guys we have battle it out for the roster spots.
    Who do you think will make the cut and how many lineman will we take? Last year Childress stated after taking 10 defensive lineman into the season that he would take 10 offensive lineman if it was warrented.

    Here are the names we currently have locked up as starters....

    McKinnie, Bryant T 6'8" 335
    Hutchinson, Steve G 6'5" 313
    Birk, Matt C 6'4" 309
    Herrera, Anthony G 6'2" 315
    Cook, Ryan T 6'6" 328

    And here are the guys fighting for roster spots......

    Hicks, Artis G/T 6'4" 335
    Radovich, Drew T/G 6'5" 305
    Johnson, Marcus T/G 6'6" 321
    Johnson, Chase T 6'8" 330
    Joyce, Brandon T 6'05" 310
    Mozes, Dan C/G 6'2" 280
    Daniels, Brian G 6'4" 303
    Roan, Matt C 6'04" 290
    Sullivan, John C 6'4" 303

    Although they are not big name guys I am coming around to the idea of some of these guys.


    Other than that, these are the Free Agents avaliable.....

    Offensive Tackle
    Shane Olivea (Like him a lot, but we already have a similar guy in Radovich who is a RG/RT tweener, who has not suffered a serious back injury)
    Fred Miller
    Barry Sims (Wanted us to get him earlier but the lack of interest shows he is not worth it)
    Oliver Ross
    Stockar McDougle
    Wayne Gandy
    Barry Stokes
    Mike Rosenthal
    Nat Dorsey

    Guard
    Chris Naeole
    Larry Allen
    John Welbourn
    Chris Liwienski
    Ruben Brown
    Todd Steussie

    Center
    Mike Flynn
    Mike Flanagan
    Jeremy Newberry
    Tyson Walter

    This is the line up i would go with.

    LT McKinnie LG Hutchinson C Birk RG Herrera RT Cook
    LT C. Johnson LG Mozes C Sullivan RG Hicks RT Radovich

    There is a lot of versitility here as Hicks can swing to LT, Radovich can move to RG, and Sulivan and Mozes can cover the interior.

    I know 10 is a lot to have locked up on the O Line, but with the uncertainty of McKinnie and Birk's future being issues you want to keep your options open. This would develop good competition and raise the play of each other, and offer versitility in case of injury or suspension. If we could sneak Mozes through to the practice squad it would be ideal.

      I don't see us taking 10 guys especially with hicks versatillity he will end up being the main backup for LT, LG, and RG.

      LT Bryant McKennie/Artis Hicks
      LG Steve Hutchinson/Artis Hicks
      C Matt Birk/John Sullivan
      RG Anthony Herrera/Artis Hicks
      RT Ryan Cook/Marcus Johnson

      Practice Squad
      Chase Johnson
      Dan Mozses

        i think we may end up taking johnson too
        it's possible he could end up on the practice squad tho, but i could definitely see us taking 9 guys
