What FA LT is better than Gross? That would dictate Gross moving to RT?

I don't have the list in front of me but I'm sure I could find at least 3 I would rather have than Gross. One was franchised today by the Chiefs.

I'd love to see Jordan move to RT and end his career that way. Who knows, a move like that could extend his career a few more seasons.

These are probably all moot points because I'm not sure how much money will be available and we have other needs.

And address LT next year?

If it's a need then. Gross isn't a liability and we have bigger needs.

There is no reason we can't keep Bell and move him to guard and draft a tackle at 14.

1. There's no reason to move Bell, he was solid last year and still have room to improve.

2. I love how everyone pretend's this is like Madden and you can just move OL around

There are 3 FAs you think are better LTs than Gross? I think you should take a look before you say something like that

Lol, that's just not how he does things.

If Cam wasn't a freak show....Piggy, Bell, and Amini would have had a normal QB in IR.

But I am more worried about RG than Bell. Cam can at least see Bell's guy coming the easiest

I know you like to see what you want to see and manipulate it to make your point, but in my OP I stated OT, not just LT.

I agree with Hangartner and I think he is our single biggest liability, close to CB 1 with Gamble likely gone...or destined for IR again.

Amini was pretty bad when the season began, but he showed a lot of progress as the season wore on. Losing Kalil on his right was a setback as well.

Bell takes a lot of heat he doesn't deserve. He was bad with penalties his rookie year but was solid last year in every phase of the game. He's a work in progress with a lot of room still to grow.

However, I still blame our OL woes on Chud mostly. Not just in the running game, but as a whole because of the confusion and fatigue cause by the zone read crap.

I'm not saying Bell can't be replaced by someone better, but I don't see a reason to think he won't continue to improve.

Well you said there where 3 Ts you would rather have over our LT. 1 + 1 should equal 2. That means you should be referring to LTs you would rather have

Bell just lacks the atheticism I think you prefer to have at T. B/c of that I don't think his ceiling for improvement isn't much higher. I don't worry about Bell getting bulrushed but he gets beat to the outside too often.

But with Newton's style I think good G play is almost more important than T play. He can handle edge pressure pretty well
