    Yeah I can't see how that's ever going to get better without some sort of special treatment. And if that treatment was out there you would have thought we would have done it in the last 2 years.

    Been wondering if it's reaching "Sean Lee" territory. To the point where he's going to be missing a couple games every season. Maybe it's time to draft a solid LT to develop behind him. With so many other needs in the roster and not much to offer in the upcoming draft, we can't grab one early. But this has to be addressed.

    Smith is 27 years old. What's the point in drafting someone to develop behind him when Tyron is still going to be around longer than the guy you drafted? You'd really just be drafting a guy to play 3 games a year. Which I have no problem with, obviously it cost us last year. But that's not worth premium resources either. Not unless you actually think Smith's career is done which I haven't seen that indication yet. Of course I don't really know if this back thing is degenerative. I've never heard that word associated with it.

    Chronic is doable, degenerative is a different story. As long as he's able to manage it there shouldn't be any real problems. Like you, I haven't heard anything that would suggest that it could shorten his career.

    1 year, 3.5 million apparently.

    Still can't figure out whether he's being earmarked for the starting RT spot or if we still plan on taking a Hernandez or Wynn at 19 and only using him as the swing tackle.

    Probably signed him specifically thinking it could be either depending on what we do in the draft. I'm sure a guard at 19 is on the table.

    D.J. Fluker got $3M from the Giants last year to be a swing type who started at G. It is not money that demands he really start, but it is borderline.

    I don't think he would just take a one year deal like this without some assurances he would be in the mix somehow.

    And, I'm okay with that. After watching some video on Hernandez, the man is an absolute beast. I don't think I would mind him or Wynn at 19.

    It's not my first choice but I wouldn't throw a temper tantrum.

    Its not great team building though. Just can't re-sign all these offensive linemen. I'm even wondering if we can keep Collins long term.
