I think we should kick his tires. I know we have 2 young tackles but our lack of depth really scares me. I think it would really benefit us to have a good backup tackle. Unless he his black balled from his stance on marijuana of course.

Should we claim him off waivers?? Or should we bring him in for a visit?


EDIT

Thought I'd make this the thread for all things Related to our lack of depth at tackle. To me this is my only real concern heading into TC.

Jake long is back and healthy again. He's a vet option to look at.

Visit as I don't know his contract situation. See if he can play guard, check his background stuff.

Yes we should. And if he needs marijuana, then we should have a stash waiting for him in his locker.

I looked earlier but they've already taken him off the Ravens at over the cap. I think he had 2 years left at about $15 million. I'm not sure if they've already paid a portion of that in bonuses or what not.

My biggest fear for this season is an injury to either Conklin or decker and we are totally screwed. We don't have anyone on this roster that can play tackle, unless one of the UDFA Ts end up being good, which is extremely unlikely. And if it were lewan that goes down I would hate to see Conklin try to play LT. I really don't see him being able to play the blind side.

He doesn't have to go through waivers.

And he'd have no interest in coming here. There are teams closer to contending that can essentially guarantee him a starting tackle spot (Seahawks, Giants), he's not going to come to Nashville to be a swing tackle.

Oh well, then business as usual.

I mean, don't get me wrong, I'd be more than happy to have him on the roster. He's just not a guy that would sign on to be a backup (or guard). When healthy, he's still at least a top 15 LT, some team will give him a decent deal, probably $5 million per year, to start for them.

He's played more than four years in the league. Veterans that are released automatically become UFA's.

I'm just saying that if he's not interested in us, we're really no worse off than we were before the idea of it even came up. Just keep going with Plan A.

I'd imagine his first visit would be out here to Denver, or NW to Seattle
