Well we all know Oline is a big need in the offseason. The only spot I am comfortable with is LT going in to the offseason. Right Tackle looks like the easiest spot to fill with Free Agency. Just curious who others would want to sign.

 

Personally, I'd probably go with Loadholt because of his run blocking. Vollmer and Smith are a little more well rounded but they don't get quite the push Loadholt does. Cherilus and Justice are better pass blockers, but I really couldn't care less about re-signing Justice, especially since he has gotten worse as the year has went on.

Resigning Justice as a backup if Ijalana does not workout and signing William Beatty (he is in a Man Blocking scheme right now with the Giants) OR Ricky Wagner in the 3rd or Chris Faulk or Alex Hurst if healthy

Beatty is high on my list too....

 

But there is one problem.   He's a left tackle.    And we may want him to be our right tackle.   Or, if he's willing to come as our right tackle,  he may still want to be PAID as a Left tackle.   They make considerably more.

 

And, if you say Beatty to left and Castonzo to the right side,  prepare for the same thing.   AC will want LT money, or he'll leave to get it elsewhere....

 

Sometimes these things get tricky....

Castonzo in my opinion is alright but is not our future at LT but maybe RT, Thats not to say Beatty is a future LT for us because I have not watched him enough to know what he is good at or is not good at and we did invest in Castonzo but I also have to think he was a huge investment in a Zone Blocking scheme and not Man. Im not saying move all these pieces we had in our Zone Scheme from last year out of here. Im just sayin right now we have quite a few O Linemen who were drafted into Zone Blocking schemes for a reason

I agree with BLOODontheTRACKS, if Vollmer Didn't have back issues he should win by a landslide. however, b/c he does have back issues i think it should be Loadholt. I think Justice should be retained as a backup and as for Andre Smith he has turned his career around in a contract year. meaning, Smith is playing great now for the $ that he cuold potentially make.

i like Louis Vasquez as the RG also. I think Vasquez & Loadholt on the right side would be great. I still wonder if Vollmer should be considered even with the back issues though...

Didn't know where else to put this news....

 

But Big Arrow DOWN for Jags OL Ebin Britton.

 

This weeks USA Today Sports Weekley says Britton has been bench -- for the 2nd time this season!    That's for performance, and not due to injury.

 

So,  unless Grigson has a major man crush on him, I'm afraid we're going to take a pass on him.   No pun intended.

 

At best, we sign him for dirt cheap to be a back-up, but otherwise.....     sorry.....

I would love to see Indianapolis go after Ryan Clady who is a free agent from Denver. However he turned down five years 50 million from them. The other tackle could be Jake along to look at who is a free agent out of Miami who is coming off an injury.

My worries would be with Sam Baker, and Sebastian Vollmer is they've had lower back issues which has sidelined each of them at different points early in their career. Maybe an individual who could play inside would be Andy Levitre. He's a guard out of Buffalo. Hopefully then comes back after two ACL injuries and can either play right or left guard. Also if you get Clady or long I'm sure Costanzo would switch to right tackle to make the team better.

It would be nice if Sampson can play more than two games in a row as well, I do realize the injury isn't something that he can necessarily control but just saying. I think one or two of these guys would add great depth to the roster in my opinion.

We need to overhaul our whole Oline besides AC and Satale(not long term solution).

 

If we can get 1 or maybe 2 of these guys I think it would be worth it. Then we can use our 1st pick on a OLB(hopefully Dion Jordan), or CB (if hes there Jon Banks) or NT (Jesse Williams if available).

 

  1. Ryan Clady
  2. Sebastian Vollmer
  3. Jake Long
  4. Brandon Albert

Thoughts?

if the dolphins don't sign jake long, he would be an UFA. What if the colts moved Castonzo to RT and signed Long to LT? that's the best tackle duo in the league. good luck getting to LUCK

With all the candidates, but especially Jake...   it depends on two things....

 

His health, and how much money he wants....    both could be big obstacles to overcome.

    •       Dang right!  I already have my "Fire BPRoland!!" thread penned, and a twitchy finger on the Submit Reply button...      .   .   .      \     Just caught up on this thread... nice job folks.
    •   Going back to 2013 (because we can't count 2012 on Chuck's resume can we?) in the 1st Qtr the points differential breaks down as:   Positive: 27 Games Even: 11 Games Negative: 26 Games   Surprising... 
    • "Where'd you get it? [A dreamweaver hanging off a Kia Sorento's rear view mirror]. My ex girlfriend. Ex girlfriend? What happened? Was she cramping your style? Did she have too much [emotional] baggage? Did your mom hate her?"    "I'm Coby Bryant. Coby plays basketball. Yeah, I know. I just meant that I was the Coby Bryant of tennis...If you never called it quits [Darren], you could have been as good as Tiger. Tiger Woods plays golf. I know. I just meant like the Tiger Woods of tennis."    "Do you remember when I played with Dash Stevens? He was the worst. You're way better than him [brother]."   "Look at you...You still haven't made a move for her since the Fifth grade...You want me want me to hook you up with that sweet caboose?"    The following quotes are taken from a 2014 comedy that revolves around the sport of tennis. Doubles Men's tennis to be exact called "Break Point" directed by Jay Karas. This 1 hour & 30 minute picture is self explanatory with no real left turns in it that will surprise or astonish you overall. Here, in a nutshell, is the plot: An older brother named Jimmy [Jeremy Sisto] is a wise cracking alcoholic & womanizer who desperately wants to return to the professional tennis circuit. There's only 1 problem: Nobody & I do mean nobody wants to coach or partner with Jimmy on the court. He's burned a lot of bridges. You submit a name & there's a good chance Jimmy screwed them over in some form or fashion. Actually, to be more specific, Jimmy needs to win matches as an amateur in Palm Springs, Florida to even get a shot at competing in the US Open as an unranked player. Hades, Jimmy even did a horrible thing to his younger sibling named Darren [David Walton]. He dumped his doubles partner & teacher for an instructor named Dak Stevens that Darren never saw coming several years ago so there's definitely some bad blood there or at least a huge unresolved grudge anyway.    Darren is in his 30's, divorced, & a substitute teacher in NY City. Did I mention that an 11 yr old student named Barry [Joshua Rush] follows him around like a lost puppy on the cusp of Summer Vacation? What's funny is this kid is always grilling Darren with questions & my first quote at the start of this review is reminiscent of an expert on relationship advice except for the fact that Barry hasn't hit puberty yet. Barry lives with his grandmother since his biological mother can't raise her son or won't due to an addiction problem or she likes to party too much instead of being a responsible parent. Obviously Barry is looking for a father figure mentor in his life & he has chosen Barry to fill that rather large void. Darren reluctantly offers to teach Barry some pointers on tennis every Thursday afternoon. A tall undertaking since Barry's hand eye coordination appears to require considerable work.    Jimmy & Darren's dad is a local animal veterinarian named Jack played by the always believable JK Simmons.  Jack's primary assistant is a pretty blond woman named Heather [Amy Smart]. Darren has always had a serious crush on Heather since he was little growing up in the same neighborhood. He just gets tongue tied around her using any excuse to avoid her. Heather has always had an attraction to Darren as well & she finds his nervousness around her charming & cute. You know the links Darren will go to not get flustered near her like listening to Billy Joel in his car. Stuff like that.    Barry is a good kid who wears loud outfits with flamboyant colors on them. Jimmy, on the other hand, reminds us all of the legendary John McEnroe always complaining with judges & competitors over whether the ball landed in our out. I kept hearing that song by Asia 'Soul Survivor' in my head written about John's unlikely return from a devastating injury in his tennis career.    "...And from the wreckage I will arise
      Cast the ashes back in their eyes
      See the fire, I will defend
      Just keep on burning right to the end."    Basically, we all know what's gonna happen here. Darren & Jimmy show Barry that his mother's erratic behavior isn't his fault, how to stand up for himself, & that some people just can't be saved no matter how much you try to help them or make things right. They, the brothers, don't make the US Open cut, but Darren finally grows a backbone & asks Heather out at match point with her no good, high maintenance boyfriend sitting right next to her. A bold, & yet never before seen jolt of public confidence from Darren that paid off in the end. Sweet.    Break Point is far from sophisticated or even elaborate for that matter. I just liked it because of the 2 brothers & Barry. A motley crew that just works. It's just interesting to see a crass guy, a refined guy, & a naive kid with hardly any world experience hang out together & give 1 another a boost of confidence, self-worth, & testosterone. Let's roll with a B- here.        I like this Joe Walsh/James Gang song "Walk Away" since Jimmy preferred to walk away from responsibility or hard work when obstacles presented themselves until about the last 25 minutes of this flick.     [One of the best drum covers I have ever heard actually really tight.]
