Yes, I would love to have him back for a fair price. He's great for depth - or even usable as a starter if Adams doesn't progress and Gilbert turns out to actually be as bad as he looked during his sophomore slump. OT is still a big problem on this team; we don't have anything that has proven out beyond the journeyman starter level (Starks). It's frustrating.
But sooner or later, we need to field an NFL caliber starting line. I thought we might get there last season, but the injuries (Adams, DeCastro, Gilbert, Colon) and the disappointing performances (Colon, Gilbert, Adams) killed us.
