Cut the dead weight $2 million cap sludge that is Eric Smith to help make the room. Go after George Bryan while you're at it and get us a decent blocking tight end.
I don't want to hear "there's a reason these guys are unsigned" Rubbish. You cannot tell me they're going to be worse at blocking than Wayne Hunter, Jeff Cumberland and Dustin Keller.
The rest of our O-line besides Hunter isn't great either and that's why this offense SUCKS.
Brick - has been a good pass protector his entire career - may have lost a step and doesn't have a blocking tight end or decent blocking RB to help him like he did for years with Jones, Richardson and Hartsock.
Slauson - average player. Same as Faneca for less $$ which means he's a decent run blocker and average to below average pass protector.
Mangold - very good player but Center is may be the least important position on the O-line.
Moore - may be showing his age. Carey is younger, knows Sparano's offense and would give him some competition and depth.
And our receivers are AWFUL. I'm so sick and tired of Chaz Hatchette and Patrick McCareins. Patrick Turner can't even get separation on a drag route he's just as much to blame for that pick as Sanchez and the O-line.
Rip into me all you want everything I'm saying is 100% true. We finally got rid of dodo brain but now we don't have the personnel.
