Title should be OL.
Sign me up.
He won't cost much, he has starting ability, and he provides excellent versatility as a guard and tackle.
We have been pretty fortunate that Brick hasn't missed any time in his career. Up until last year, it was probably the one injury we could least afford to have happen.
If we were to get Schwartz and for some reason Brick got hurt for an extended period of time, while it wouldn't be pretty, we could at least survive it. Schwartz has experience at RT and Howard started a few games at LT when he was on the Eagles. Again, not a situation I'd want, but it certainly wouldn't be a season crippler or one akin to Mangold's injury in 2011.
My only concern is health. He missed all of 2011 with I believe back injuries. He was able to play last year, so maybe he's put it behind him. Regardless, these are the kind of smart but cheap acquisitions we should be looking at this offseason.
