I suppose that probably means we're not going to sign Rocky Bernard.

They've also released Bill Nagy.

I....uh....okay? Why release Nagy? I wonder if he never fully recovered from injury? I guess an optimist view on this would be that Rodney Austin has looked good enough to be the main backup, but why not just release someone less talented?

I've heard it's exactly that--he doesn't seem to be fully recovered from his injury and they don't want to keep a roster spot open for a guy who can't play.

The release of Nagy seems inevitable. I doubt Fluellen makes it on the final roster.

How do we know Nagy was that talented any ways? It was hopefully and wishful thinking he could push Dom but that was just people who don't like Dom hyping him up. I'm ok with Fluellen being back. He is decent depth if he sticks with the team. Nothing spectacular, but solid and he knows the defense.

The siging of Fluellen is, meh with Bernard/Williams out there imo.

The release of Nagy doesn't make me mad with Rodney Austin and Leroy Harris as back up C's.

We look pretty good on the interior imo with Sims/Riaola/Warford(Personal projection) with Austin/Harris/Scott as reserves. Now the OT's are pretty much unproven and have little depth. We have to hope Reiff is solid at LT and we kind of have to hope Fox/Hilliard can handle RT. There are a few guys out on the market still like Sean Locklear, Jared Gaither, and Demtrius Bell who could be upgrades at RT for cheap though none are long-term options/solution or even stable options without injury risks.
