Guard depth (sweet mother of Moses)

61 posts in this topic

Guards are a dime a dozen and can found throughout the preseason.  Here is alink with a bunch of free agent guards unsigned.  When you add in the tackles who could be switched to guard and could do fine, there are still a bunch of guys out there.

2 of which are purely recreational.

Good signs: We talked to Wharton, so we are shopping. RGs are not that tough to find when compared to other players,

We are almost $10 million under the cap.

Players better than Hangartner will be cut. Could we be looking for a trade? Wonder how marketable Beason became?

We are now 13 mil below the cap.

I have to believe Gettleman will be bringing in a veteran guard soon.

Agree.

There just no way a d2 guy is gonna come in and hold up. His body isnt ready, he doesnt know the playbook yet, never played with the guys before much less anything close to this level. He needs a year to adapt. What Amini did last year is nothing short of beastly and should not be expected of Kugbilla. We need a vet now.

 

I'm sorry but Amini was garbage last year, albeit improved towards the end.

I think that was his point, that even sucking as bad as he did, was a phenomenal achievement for a d2 guard.

Whatever happened to Brandon Moore? Very solid veteran.

There is some vet depth available out there.

 

Worth remembering that every season sees teams wait until after week one to sign veteran players because they don't have to guarantee contracts then.

I have been out--does this factor in Beason's new deal?

Pretty sure it does.

 

My memory may be flawed, but I'm drawing a blank on when we last had that much cap space.  My sense is that it's been a while.
