At right tackle. I think he is at the very least very good competition. I just don't feel comfortable with what we have right now.

Good question. My sense is that the GM and coaches know we are rebuilding and it will take three years before we are legitimate contenders so they are going young. Only exception is defense where haslett whined he needed hatcher and porter to save his job. I wouldn't have signed either of them and gone young on defense too with a draft pick on d line minnefield or Crawford

He is a zone blocking lineman on the decline and wants to get paid more than he is worth so might as well roll with what we have.

Sassan answered it perfectly, frankly at this point he isn't an upgrade over Polumbus and he demands more $.

Yeah he fell completely off after a couple good years in Houston.
I'm so glad we didn't grab him back when we looked at him before. It would have been a huge mistake because he wanted top money.

For once our FO has done it right drafting 2 0linemen and i hope we continue the trend on offense and defense

Not saying we throw money at the dude, this is why I posted this now and not back in May. Just like you guys I wouldn't want to pay him what he wants/wanted but I think since it looks like no team is approaching him, he may want to do a minimum deal for a couple of years and bring him in as competition. From all accounts Moses is not nearly ready yet thus we can forget him for a year, we need to have at the very least a backup there.

Yes there was a drop-off in Texas but that entire team had a drop-off. I leave it to the coaches they know what we have at that position but we have said this over and over again its imperative that RGIII has protection.

In the past Eric was in a place where he wouldn't take cheaper deals. I can't imagine that's changed, he still thinks he's a top RT and he's not anymore. The chiefs gave up on him rather quickly and he didn't play all that great for Arizona.

It's a wash or between he and Polumbus and Polumbus is cheap, plays as hard as he can every play and has the versatility to play guard also.

We are developing two young tackles behind our starters, I just don't see any need for Winston who thinks he's better than he is.

I would rather see a young guy weve been working on come in and learn and show us what he has than an old guy stink up the joint

Lets give compton or moses

a shot or even hurt but if we have no one that can play at a starter level then we need to keep drafting until we do

ERIC WINSTON: The 30-year-old right tackle has started 119 consecutive games, spanning his first six NFL seasons with the Texans, a season in Kansas City and last year in Arizona. He wasn't re-signed by the Cardinals, and some wonder if the lack of interest is due in part to Winston becoming president of the NFL Players Association.

some will always wonder.
His failing play and the fact that AZ has 3 other options including recently drafted Bobbie Massey are more of a factor I would think. That and they can always bring him back- he is still at their table.

The left side is completely wrapped up with Veldheer (you see those pics of him Hulking?)

I don't understand that. Why would teams not want him just because he is the president of the NFLPA? Doesn't every team have a representative. If any player has a problem i'm sure they can just go to someone in the NFLPA office. Can someone please explain that too me because I don't understand it.

You're right. I didn't get it either, IMO they're throwing darts on the wall with that comment
