I don't see why we can't give Hills a chance. Gaither is a headcase with injury concerns, and Justice has been over rated since the moment he stepped into the league. We don't have much cap room. I know those of you banging your head against a brick wall know more about the situation then RMK and DA, but lets give it a chance. Confused

Campbell couldn't do anything the last time the Raiders were running the PBS.

Barksdale would definitely be an upgrade over Barron or Smith right now, but he's gone.

I agree Campbell didnt impress the staff much. But, I believe i heard he was playing well in Carolina before he hurt his shoulder.

Also, Barksdale is now starting RT for the Rams.

What are our options at this point?

I just don't see how people can be upset about bringing in another guy.

Dude to injury. He's a backup. He couldn't beat out Smith a year ago. In fact, he looked down right awful in preseason for Oakland last year.

Barksdale isn't any good. Hopefully Watson gets healthy soon and locks down the rt spot.

TBF it was a different blocking scheme last year. Didn't have the feet for ZBS.

He started 2 games at LT last year because of injuries. Did solid from what I remember. Definitely sounds better than having a guy who was out of the league since 2010 and was one of the worst starting LTs in NFL when he was a Ram.

Either way I can only hope Reggie finds a solid LT who loses out due to numbers game (roster spots) on the waiver wire.

Hills will be a backup but he's versatile at least. Can play every spot aside from C.

A couple of guys I'm hoping we'll get a shot at due to final cuts...

OT Max Starks
OT J'Marcus Webb
OG Jason Spitz
OG John Jerry
C Dalton Freeman
