Gotta know when enough is enough. Bad investment, time to move on.
He's not a RT. Never thought he was and I have actually stated this on this board many, many times.
I think he's a LT.
But then again I thought he was more of a backup than a full-time starter.
They tried that already.
When he played LT along side Kosier, he actually had a pretty good year. I believe that was 2010. In 2011, we flipped Kosier from the Left to the Right and started Holland at LG. Free's play started dropping off but Smith's play on the right side was as impressive as you could ask for a Rookie with Kosier player next to him. This season, we flipped Free from Left to Right, Kosier went away, we brought in Livings on the Left and Bernadeau on the Right and both Free and Smith feel off a cliff.
I'm not saying Free is the answer but I am saying that before we make a final decision on him, we should see what happens if we put him next to a good Guard.
He might just end up being a swing tackle. Of course, he would have to renegotiate his contract but I could see that.
He earned his contract because of how he played at LT.
Well, I guess he'll earn his next one as well one he's cut.
how come I don't hear this about other tackles that stink- they need a good guard next to them? Total BS.
