Being that his release came now I'm guessing that his recent decline is not due to injuries so I would pass. If I had too guess Starks or Adams will be brought back before an outsider.

why not he's only 31 and if healthy he's better than some of our guys IMO

Why not. The OL can't get that much worse. :noidea:

I would be ok giving him a shot. Can he play guard?

Whats the harm in bringing him in for a workout? especially since we are STILL looking for a starter at RG

trai essex visit the steelers today. while not pro bowl caliber he has been a reliable backup tackle and does have good versatility, being able to play both tackle sides and guard if needed

Not sure if this is a good thing or not...
(man I hope we get some good OL in the draft next year)

what does that tell you when you cut starting offensive linemen and no one even picks them up to be a backup ? :banging:
hartwig , starks , essex , stapleton .... almost our entire 2008 starting superbowl line is unemployed !!!!

coaches are saying that gilbert is looking good in camp. though i doubt the rookie is ready to start this year. maybe next.

Lets hope so! At this point if our offense can't get things going (which it should) then there are only two things to blame: The OL and Arians(had to say it). Our offense could be scary for years to come with just a few small fixes!

Hell yes we should be looking at Stinchcomb. Unless he's asking for a lot of money, which I'm sure he's not, we should pick him up. We need body's on the Oline. Half our O line is usually hurt. Stinchcomb is not in his prime but he's still better then some of the guys we have. If we can afford to pick up any more O linemen, big names or not, we should.
