Beachum, Clady, Okung and Albert?

Postby TheProfessional on Fri Feb 17, 2017 1:45 am

Beachum and Clady were released today. Dolphins changed their mind on Albert and are trying to trade him. Clayton says matter of time for Okung.

As dire as the T situation is for Hawks they can't pass on this type of opportunity can they?

You would sure think they would make a big push for one of them right?

Which of course, means they won't.

Yeah, we will trade our entire draft for JJ Watt and move him to LT in an effort to ease his wear and tear! In the last year of his contract he will have an average season and we will deem our philosophy a total success! In year two Hawkbowler will be arrested for multiple attempts on Tom Cable's life! The Seattle Times forum will spend three years trying to raise his bail.

The Hawks probably look at Fant as being the long term solution at LT. He'll probably be installed there the middle of this season. Until then, it wouldn't hurt for the Hawks to sign one of those listed as an interim LT and then perhaps move them to RT until Odhiambo can step in there. A two year offer to any of the above should be all that is necessary to hold down the fort until Fant and Odhiambo can take over the reigns. In other words, it wouldn't hurt and probably won't be that expensive because of the glut of LT's available.

I think they should sign a veteran to play left and draft a RT ..ideally Robinson. Or at least slide Ifedi or Odihambo over there.

I am excited about the possibilities for Fant. Let's just hope they turn into realities and do not remain possibilities.

Well, you have a guy who is very quick on his feet, long arms, and the body of an NBA Power Forward. All he needs to do (as if "all" is only a couple of weeks in a middle school English class!) is learn the nuances of the position, perhaps THE most difficult position to learn outside of QB. But physically and mentally, the guy is a good fit. I really hope he makes it, as do probably all Russell Wilson fans. With any amount of luck, he should do well as he has all the tools, but the trick will be how fast he can take it all in.

How cool would it be for him to become a stable part of an O-Line that needs a healthy dose of stability?

LOL... I would take a line made up entirely of JJ Watts at each position.

Fant can't be the solution at LT. He held his own for having no experience, but we really need a pro at this position. Just one solid guy. This year's FA looks very promising. Spend the money Pete and John. And Cable? Just keep as many guys as possible in the same positions.

Half these guys are injuries waiting to happen. When we spend valuable cap space on these guys and then they sit for half the season injured, and the other half of the season we are making excuses for them playing poorly because they are still mending from those injuries, I don't want to hear how it is all Cable's fault.

Half of the posters here have the patience of a five year old. No, the other half!
