We might of gotten really lucky whiffing on OL early this year. Lots of talk about DJ Humphries being a big time bust. Ariz OL is trash and Arians is already hinting at him not suiting up for gameday. Some recent stuff from Arians who you have to love.... First there were the chuckles by Arians revealing the tackle’s nickname as “Knee Deep,” because a foot up Humphries’ backside wasn’t providing enough motivation. Then last week, while talking about the professionalism of tackle Bradley Sowell, there was a jab at Humphries. “(Sowell) shows up every day,” Arians said. “D.J.'s a rookie. He shows up once every week.” “He’s going to be a backup tackle for us,” Arians said, “so if he’s going to dress on Sundays, he’s got to be able to play both.”
In 2 drafts Gman has hit on virtually every position he has attacked except RB. He has had multiple rookie UDFAs turned into productive starters. Now we see a whole new rookie crop of RB/FB flash... with only Hurney regime, old RB/FBs in front of them. It would kind of be silly to have low expectations about CAP/Wegher/Ward at this point (not attempting to take anything away from Stewart + Tolbert)
Maybe I'm delusional but I'm holding out hope that Lee Ward makes the 53. I keep thinking about Gman's quote from camp confidential "don't worry about positions just take the best football players" Lee Ward screams football player to me. Tolbert is a UFA in 2016 and turns 30 in November. Maybe we try to give Ward a shot in game action to see if he is the future at FB.
