There is a reason why they are available just like there is a reason why Marvel Smith was available. The Ravens passed on him becuase they didn't feel his back could hold up.

Runyan, Jones and Tauscher have not had health issue. They are LT so they demand more money. We signed Smith because of his issue and because he is a RT, hence the discounted price. One of those three will cost more but you have to do what you have to do.

Runyan is a RT and has real bad knee problems. I believe he had micro-fracture surgery in the offseason. Despite that, the guy has never missed a game and played all last year with a broken tailbone. Runyan is a machine

Thats an oxymoron. Bad knee problems but never missed a game. LOL. You are right about the RT thing, my bad.

LOL... It sounds fuked up, but im dead serious.

Id be on the horn to all 3 of their agents right now... I dont understand why we employ Simms when these guys are still out there
  • trellblaze1
  • Info N/A
You'd think Smith was Harris Barton with some of the reactions around here...hmm..

Anyway...this almost guarantees that a T will be selected at SOME point in next year's draft...

Runyan is a fukin warrior. Id sign him up right now
Great job by McClueless addressing the RT and pass rush situation. This season is going to bad because the front office did not come through once again.

we did address it with the signing of Marvel Smith, yeah of course it looks bad now because he is retiring, but who knew, you cant predict the future.

The dude had a bad back, thats why no other teams showed any interest in him. Thats not addressing the situation. Trading that 2nd round pick does not look so smart now.

Its like they are willing to starve right now, to eat a in the future.
Our running game looked great without him. I'm not to worried

We got a 1st rounder for a very strong draft class...
