Fonoti is listed at 350 pounds.

Want BIG? This guy is MASSIVE.

They still need to sign Mulitalo. The only thing better than having one bigass Samoan on the O-line is having two of them.

If he plays like he did in '04, then great signing. The problem is he literally ate himself out of starting in the league the past two years. Since it's a one year deal, that's a good risk/reward ratio in my estimation. He is still only 25-years old.

Its good to sign someone like him early that way you have all off season to get him where you want him.

Kynan Forney will be the starter at RG, he's the best O-Lineman on the team. He slimmed down for Gibbs' scheme and he still was 6'3" 307-lbs. He is most benefited from the scheme change.

The downside is he is out of shape, provides depth at most, is out next year. The upside is he plays like he did in '04 and starts at LG. Either way, I like the signing. I'm taking a wait and see approach. If he is in shape is key.

He prolly signed for vet minimum if he's had that much trouble. He's not a big name guy, I never even heard him being talked about in ATL until today lol. I'm not happy, but I am happy we have competition on the OL now.

This guy doesnt really impress me. But I suppose there is a lowrisk/high reward type of deal here. Hoepfully we can fit in the signings of Mulitalo and Mare. That would make me a very happy man.

the guy must of been just older than Okoye when he was drafted. 350lbs thats huge and a great signing for someone so young. It we can sign Mulittalio as the OG starter id be over the moon, the O line would be instantly huge and Fonoti is only 1-2 years older than some of the rookies in the draft but with 5 years NFL experience. I could really then see a draft day situation that we could get exited about with the need at OG somewhat reduced

#10 DE - Carricker/Anderson
#33 (shaub) Joe Staley (gets up to 315-320) easily but the start of the season
#42 Weddle/Merriweather
#74 Michael Bush
#96+(comp) Aaron Rouse/CB?

He's listed at 350-lbs. He has been in the 380-400 range. Big difference there.

NFL Network mentioned Leander Jordan as someone the team is working out. He would be good depth at T and G. He started at LT for the Chargers in '05.

He looks good, i wonder if they would ask him about playing OG for us instad of payin "overs" for an older guy like Mulitalio(sp) normally big, guys who lost their starting tackle roles did so due to a lack of quickness with edge rushers, something not generally encountered by OGs so maybe he would excell or at least push Fonoti?

I really am hesistant tho in signing a guy to start at RT (over gandy) just cause he is 320lb+ that is a position where we need a guy with great feet to be able to handle rucker, grant/smith and rice but still posses the frame to add the weight Petrino covets. Guys like Joe Tomas and Joe Staley fit the bill perfectly, its easier to get 305-310 guys to 315-320 that it is to get 330+ 27-28 year olds to be able to stick with the DE's in the NFC South as they "edge rush" them

i believe it's the "all you can eat" restraunts that have to sustain the brunt of the intensity possessed by the 2007 version of Toniu Fonoti

Maybe since he's been out of work his motivation has ramped up. If so, we got a steal.
