Didn't see a discussion yet.

Saw Max Starks was cut by the chargers, would be good depth for the tackle plus make Ben happy with a good friend returning. Vet min salary only.

This ones been discussed but ras-I dowling cut by patroits. If we don't feel comfortable with brown/Hawthorne/Victorian working out. Injuries are major concern.

Jake Ballard cut by patriots, has starting experience till spaeth/miller return.

Not saying we need em just throwing out some names really.

I would like to see them try to find an experienced backup OL somewhere. Beachum's versatility is terrific, especially now that he has been playing at center at times, but I would still like another capable backup. Watching Whimper play makes me want to whimper myself. I wish they would have kept Starks in the first place to be a backup just for insurance.

Starks wanted the opportunity to start which he wasn't going to get here so the team didn't really have much say in it I don't think.

Now he has realised he isn't getting that opportunity he may come back as a back up. However, is he a fit for our ZBS? Even if he isn't a perfect fit I would like him as a back up because his pass blocking is still solid which can't be said for many of our Tackles

I like Antoine Winfields fit for this teams needs and scheme. He'd make a great slot corner next to Taylor and Allen.

Seattle just cut him.

Anybody but Gay.

Tony Moeaki despite his injuries has to be of some interest to his former HC, who I believe drafted him. Has a lot of talent health has been the issue. Hes 26.

Danny Watkins could be a good back up. Although I really never did see how he played in Philly.

For a 1st round OG to be cut after two seasons says everything about Watkins. 3 OL coaches now have given up on the guy.

It always made me wonder what people were seeing in Watkins coming out of the draft, just glad we didn't take him.
