Bears Release Starting LT Charles Leno

The dude is trash. I would sign Leno. Keep Brady and Trenton Scott as my backups for both tackle spots. Cut Little and Erving so a young guy and future starter like David Moore can make the team. 

I guess he was not trash enough to play and start on the super bowl winning KC team when injuries happened that year. He can play multiple positions on the line not just left tackle. There is a place for him. I thought his contract was way too much and I don’t want him starting but injuries happen every year.

keeping Erving doesn’t mean we can’t sign Leno. Little needs to be cut though. That guy is an absolute bust.

Great. The draft weekend is a single day past and Huddlers are still waiting for the starting LT who should have been on the roster by now.

There were 2 OTs available when Carolina opted for a CB in round 1.

There were 5 OTs available when Carolina opted for a WR in round 2.

So, yeah, there were a few opportunities to get a high-quality starter before round 3.

Exactly.  Way too much of a risk to go into the season without another option.

I've read though that Leno's college coach is now with the Colts who also need a LT and they are the favorites to sign him... one can hope though

yea he will sign with the bears. Panthers already have like 4 different players who might start at LT.

I believe totally that christiansen can be the guy, but I've never been a fan of throwing a rookie OL out there without much experience. Rookie OL wear roller skates and they are going to get outsmarted by vet DL across from them. Pick up Leno and use him as a buffer until....

Just out of curiosity did you pick your own screen name?

If we had a crystal ball that this would've happened I wonder if we would've signed Cam Erving?

yeah, bc he is just as versatile as eflein. Instant plug n play player for cheap.

Erving and Elflein to me are both centers. Not guards, not tackles, but Centers.

Probably. But we signed Erving to compete at LT first and foremost. He's going to have to get best out there to end up playing somewhere else.

My honest opinion, I think Greg Little is better than Erving.

This would make things feel very complete this offseason and would much prefer this over the Erving vs. Christensen vs. Scott training camp battle. 

Erving (G/T) and Elflein (C/G) could assume their spots as swing linemen backups, Christensen starts at LG, Scott becomes the backup LT, we release Little.  

Leno-Christensen-Paradis-Miller-Moton

Do it
