    I was reading something somewhere by some guy that said if we could sign Jake Long or Denver's LT, we could move Smith back to RT. I'd feel more comfortable spending money on a tackle and looking at the interior through the draft.

    Jake Long has had some struggles with injuries. If he didn't have some issues, then Miami would probably re-sign him.

    Clady, Denver's LT, will get Franchised.

    I agree that I'd rather have a vet tackle, but Long and Clady aren't great options.

    I wouldn't be surprised at all if the only OL we sign is a swing tackle, we have Parnell at RT next year, and we go OG/C in the 3rd or 4th round.

    Long and Clady aren't great options? Why?

    Long has been coasting on his rep the last few years. Several nagging injuries are at least part of the reason.

    He is NOW nowhere what he was 4 years ago

    Because of Long's injury history and the fact that Clady is not going to get out of Denver.
