Not that depth is a issue but the talent level is. After watching us during the preseason no one should be comfortable with this level of play. So as we walk into the best defensive front we have faced all (season and preseason) what are we doing to ease these concerns? Are we gonna just say they will be fine? Because I look at the Patriots whom I don't think their line play has been as bad as ours.

But they have already made 3 offensive lineman trades this week! Nothing top tier but they have been throwing 5-7 draft picks at the problem and scoop potential successors from other teams instead of hoping for cuts. I love an active gm that sees a problem and sets out to correct it. My thing is are we gonna wait till cam gets knocked out another game before we act? Are we just sitting on our hands and ignoring we Have a problem?

The backup situation at OT ain’t pretty. 

 

Are we even sold on the starters at this point? William's didn't blow me away this preseason... gvr and even pardis looked a little iffy.. hopefully that gets better with time. But I would definitely not bank on it and do nothing.

It's a bad time to be desperate for OL depth, plenty of other teams with resources and a need. Best we can really hope for is to pickup a couple of decent depth guys from other teams cuts.

The value of decent lineman has gone up tremendously. For the most part, teams are hesitant to part with players. That said, the o line is a single unit, not just any player can necessarily come in and improve.

The Dolphins just rejected Clowney and a first for Tunsil, just goes to show how hard it is to pry guys away via trade. Equally as good a bet is find a guy that didn't fit on a team that released him.

We haven’t had the injuries. The Pats have had a few injuries on the OL during preseason so I’m pretty sure that’s a big reason. Cajuste, the rookie T from WVU, has yet to play a snap and their C Andrews might not play this year. They had another OL injury last night and I think they had another earlier in preseason.

There's five starters on our line, with maybe seven good knees between them...
