Abry Jones returns to Jacsonville on a 4 year 16 million dollar deal, which to me is a steal. I felt he would have been a great fit at 5 technique for the Bears.

Eagles apparently want Alshon.

A.J Bouye apparently is not going to get tagged.

Would be my #1 target.

Mine as well. Houston is concerned about having two years in a row where they sign a guy for big money who only had one year of production after signing Osweiller last year. I'm happy to take the risk on Bouye.

Kelvin Beachum and Ryan Clady released would add some OT depth.

Both would start over Leno.

Don't let AZ hear you say that.

At this point in his career, I don't think Clady would. Not sure about Beachum though.

Clady might be worth a flier on a 1-year prove it type of deal to give Leno some competition but I wouldn't have too high expectations for him. He's older and has been beat up a lot.

Beachum is not much better than Leno if at all. He's not the answer.

We just need someone better than Mike Adams.

I do not need Leno sent to the bench, but I need real competition at both OTs.

Leno isn't a swing tackle, though. He's fine at LT and a disaster at RT. I'm with AZ, keep him at LT... he did nothing to deserve losing his spot, he's unbelievably cheap, and I'd love to see if he takes another step this season in strength and technique.

I don't need a swing OT, I am keep 2 backup OTs.

Leno needs someone to push him and the Bears need another option to go to.

I would like to sign an experienced swing OT and draft a mid round developmental guy.


Leno was a disaster in his first extended playing time at RT, who knows if he can do it now.

I'm not sure how he would get better at RT when he has been solely repping at LT. Some players can flip the switch technique-wise, I don't think Leno is that dude.

Brandon Albert is a free agent now, so he might a decent option here.

I wanted us to draft him SO badly... but eventually convinced myself on Chris Williams (vomits)

I wanted Otah that year (which wouldn't have worked out much better anyway) but never expected Albert to be there for Chicago. When he was there it was like Christmas came early. Yeah. Things changed quick.
