So if we know they really want to replace Hunter, why not have dealt with this in free agency and have brought in a real starter who's healthy? Like a Winston who would have cost the same money as Hunter and Otah combined.
If Hunter starts and does fail, which is very realistic and possible, this could be a major major F'up and cost the team the season and people their jobs. Most who talk up Sanchez blame Hunter for our QB's poor season.
Please dont tell me all is ok on the RT front. Front offices make mistakes and over look certain areas of the team. RT could be one of them. This is a realistic concern.
Again, the problem here, is that too many are automatically assuming the move was made to replace Hunter.
Maybe the team STILL believes in Hunter, but taking on Otah as a reclamation project was too good to pass up, and will provide insurance once he is ready and healthy? Once healthy, and in shape, he can eventually claim the RT position, but again, all contingent on the belief that they STILL believe in Hunter, and Otah is insurance.
Maybe putting Otah on the PUP if the seven day rumor is correct, allows the team to avoid giving up compensation for the player, but they keep him anyway as mentioned?
