I think that will be the reason more so than the injuries/penalties. The guy just hasn't seen the field enough and there has just been too many "he's got potential" moments over the years - never really got over the hump here - thought this would have been his year - but alas.

I hope he finishes his career out with at least a solid organization - he at least deserves that. Love to have him back in the Burgh in some form or fashion someday - who knows - line coach of the future?
I don't know about that, he refused to take a pay cut despite not playing a single snap in 2 years. He is NOT a team-first player and didn't earn 66% of his check

I guess it's easy to be happy when you can get paid millions of dollars to not do your job, hell that sounds like a sweet deal

Would rather have Willie but cannot affrod to have him sit on the bench. Not sure their is really much to discuss from a FO prospective. Probably just comes down to money. Good luck Willie.

good point - I guess I was more or less commenting on him being there for every game with a clip board and still involved

Of course, if you are getting paid for doing nothing - you might want to show up and at least show that you care lol

Think I take Foster. Younger and less injury prone. If Willie could stay more healthy, I'd say him but.

Ugly choice.

Foster isn't a legitimate starter, and Colon is both injury-prone and mistake-prone. Neither of these guys is worth big bucks.

Despite the drafts of recent years, we're not finished filling our deep OL holes.

Could you rephrase that so it doesn't have a dirty connotation?

Colon is definitely the better guard but if I could only keep one it would be Foster hands down. Colin can't stay on the field and even if he was the best guard in the NFL its useless to keep paying him when he is always injured. Let's spend the money some were else.
