    I keep going over this in my head why not a vet with experience? This guy didn't make our roster or theirs. I get there is a familiar aspect of it but hey what makes them confident he can be a starter let alone a swing tackle?

    Anyone they sign didn't make a roster. He was been in the league numerous season. Should know our system for the most part. If he gets into practice and the coaches don't like what they see they can always move on.

    I mean its a stopgap with a guy who knows our team... if a better solution opens up down the road via a free agent or trade then you do it, but they need a warm body that can play asap if needed due to multiple ol injuries...

    Part of me thinks it's the first band aid. Others to come.


    Money a factor as well, just a note.

    1. We won the game. Enjoy the win.
    2. If we had dressed only 7 players instead of 48, we would have been massacred.

    Wow, even with your anit-Tomlin agenda, you can't get it right. Which OL that was inactive would have been active? None of them, because there were ZERO inactive OLs yesterday. McFadden probably would have been the active player.

    Besides, if you understood the 2020 inactive list, if you were carrying less than 8 active offensive linemen, then you must have 6 inactives instead of 5.

    BOOM!
