I think we can get better talent in the draft. If Schwartz was really that good, Gettleman would have signed him already, right?

I don't think Gettleman is nearly done with assessing the team needs yet.

I'd rather add depth with better players. Just because this board fell in love with him over a stupid nickname doesn't mean we should bring him in. Bring in the best you can find. There are better lineman that him out there. Period.

He's better than Hangartner, Byers, G.Williams, Austin, Hicks, Z.Williams, Pollack. The worst he can be is our best backup lineman. At best, the starting RG if healthy.

Rivera didn't play him and he got cut, Somehow though, he's improved to the point where he would be an upgrade over the guy we did end up starting?

Maybe people should go back and read all the gushing threads that were posted about Hangartner when he came back, and get a little perspective.

He was hurt, and Hurney opted not to tender him because he was an RFA, apparently him and Hurney had a dispute.

Geoff Schwartz, OT/ OG

When the Carolina Panthers opted against tendering Schwartz, there was a collective gasp from the PFF team. Sure Ron Rivera wasn’t in charge when Schwartz managed to finish 2010 with a PFF grade of +12.3 despite playing two positions, but it wouldn’t have been hard to watch some tapes and see he’s got more talent than anything they can currently put out on the right side of their line. Schwartz offers the kind of versatility and talent that brings to mind a poor man’s Marshal Yanda; good enough to make him the best right tackle available and possibly the best value guard too. He has a very real chance to be this year’s Evan Mathis for a team with a diligent scouting department.

This was last free agency.
