He is significantly better than every right guard we currently have on the roster. And since when does sitting behind a veteran for a year while improving in weight room and NFL technique not help a raw rookies progress?
was thinking about this statement from a hypothetical standpoint.
You say we could have drafted Whitehair, but if we did then the Bears would not have cut Slauson, Hypothetically, we are in a better position here than if we HAD drafted Whitehair. We got TJ Green AND could potentially sign a top 20 Guard(according to PFF) who would cost less than TJ Green would in his respective draft slot.
The only knock on this is longevity with the team. Slauson would be out of town much sooner than Whitehair.
When I say middling talent I think I actually oversold his ability.
1) He is not significantly better, if at all, than what they already have on the roster.
2) They just invested a ton of picks on players they need to work with and develop. Bringing him in does not help their progress.
3) He is the type of player at this point in his career that a team signs if they have injuries in training camp.
So like I said - will they sign him? Not very likely.
Definitely, my grandfather lived in Baltimore for a while and grew up watching him. He still pulled for Indy but always referred to them as Baltimore. I wasn't allowed to say the name Irsay in my house. The game sure has changed. I wish I could go back in time when players didn't get flagged for breathing on a player and defenses were actually feared by offenses.
