At one point I thought there were whispers about the team letting Simmons go because of his diabetes. That type of release, I believe, allows the team compensation.
When did I miss that? Last I checked they had just extended Simmons?s contract. I remember that last year because Faneca stated at the time how happy he was for Simmons (bffs, I guess).


I agree we only have room or a couple of o'linemen. I would not be surprised to still see us draft two. After all, it is not unusual to draft two linemen in years when the o'line is set. It is a question of when we draft o?linemen now. I see one first day o'linmen now at the most and another on the second day only if it is a BPA pick. If not, there is always the RFA's.

They did give Simmons a contract last year, and he's not playing up to it. What I'm talking about is somewhat of a backdoor out of the contract due to his diabetes, saying he has health issues that effect his play.

Before we go picking OTs this year we might keep in mind that there are about 5 OTs that will be in next years draft that some say will be very good LT. Oher, Unger, Boone, Loadholt, and Gardner, besides Oher, who we will not even get close to, I think I am going to keep an eye on Gardner.

Yeah, but it normally takes a year or 2 of playing RT before they switch a drafted player over to LT.

Long, Williams, Otah, Albert, Clady are the only real top prospects that may be able to play LT in this draft. I say if 1 of them are there... we draft them as a future LT.
