They aren't cutting Berger... they have no other proven interior depth.

Agreed. They aren't going to cut him this year as he provides versatility and experience. He won't be back in 2018, though, as he'll be a free agent, and he's nearly retired before. This is his final year as a NFL player.

Or just move Berger to RG instead of creating a hole on your roster.

That is unless you think one of Sirles, Isidora, Beavers, Kerin or Easton can be effective starters this year.

I hope Elfein wins the starting Center position and never looks back

some 400 pound tackle will knock him on his butt if he does.

Applause well done!

Honestly though, I think he has the best chance to start week 1 of all the rookies we drafted, and that's saying a lot!

As long as there are several OL on the roster to compete for RG and backup the RG, there is no immediate need for Elflein to learn to play OG before he learns to be backup C.... if he doesn't soon start as C.

After 2017, when a few OL on the 2017 roster who don't make the cut for 2018, Elflein can get reps at RG, as a possible backup, IF there hasn't been determined a solid RG starter and a solid backup RG.

Would be nice to add his name to the great list of centers this team has had.
