What’s your solution to the tackle situation?

Recommended Posts

Obviously there isn’t an abundance of tackles just sitting at home right now waiting for a call. At this point if you’re willing to play and you’re listed as a tackle you have a job. 

So with that in mind what is your solution? 

The Raiders were asking Penn to restructure and have since moved him to right tackle after drafting Kolten Miller in the 1st. Penn is said to be willing to play RT so the Raiders may not even be willing to trade him anymore but I think you have to at least make a call. 

The Panthers did this to themselves when they signed Kalil expecting something different, anyone who was willing to view the signing for what it was saw this coming a mile away. So if it costs you a 2nd rounder to find a replacement so be it. Moton can play the other tackle spot so we just need to find one tackle... but who!?!?

And Ben McAdoo was recently quoted saying Ereck Flowers can’t play either tackle position because he can’t bend. Flowers has been awful but before you throw his name out there I figured I’d add that.

Really the only significant injury to the line is Daryl Williams. Amini and Matt didn't make a difference since they are so bad. If anything, we've improved since those two are down.

There really isnt a Tackle out there that we could get without overspending (draft picks especially). Tackles are a hot commodity in the NFL which is why they are throwing around ridiculous contracts at starting caliber LT and RT. I think our best bet right now is to stick with Moton at LT until Kalil is healed up and find a guy after the first round of cuts.

Put a call in to Jordan Gross. Tell him he needs to get to eating and put back on a 100 lbs.

I have no idea. I think the most likely solution is shopping the waiver wire after final roster cuts. The reality though is that good OTs are few and far between and the odds of a decent one being available on the FA market or via trade are pretty slim. Our best case scenario is that Moton plays well at RT and Williams can return soon.

I can somewhat buy the "addition by subtraction" line of reasoning but now we are in dangerous territory as far as depth. That is the biggest concern. And, if we thought Kalil and Amini were starting caliber....what does that say about our existing depth quality? Yikes.

It means Rivera can't evaluate for poo on the offensive side of the ball

We’re scraping the bottom of the bin here but I think Luke Joeckel is still a free agent.

I think he played guard last in Seattle but obviously has tackle experience...

We’re honestly this desperate
