Some OL depth. Discuss. That is all.

I like to Willie Beavers too.
Ok, it's a start. I said we would get some OG cap cuts, maybe even two OGs, maybe an OT. Getting a guy off waivers isn't really a cap cut in the sense i was thinking. I was thinking of a starter, who had a yr left or so and wanted a new 3 yr deal at $$$millions, and his team just wouldn't budge. With Beavers, this is just getting a guy off waivers , not a cap cut...at least not in the sense i had envisioned.

I am hoping we still get one or two OGs that are starters...Beavers wasn't... and we pick them up. Still and all, it is an OL , and we welcome all comers. But he has to be better than a backup to stay. We need starter OG types. If he can produce in a new environment, fantastic. I hope it isn't as it looks, an OL who just wasn't getting playing time. Still glad to have him tryout.

AB, if you are out there, how do we handle this $$ wise? Does he get a conditional contract or is it something different...eg, guaranteed x amount of $$?

McGlinch needs to give up his jersey number.
I remember Beavers actually being projected pretty high (some sources even had him as a late 1st rd pick and Mayock as the #5 OT) because he had a freakish traits but was super raw. People thought he was a steal in the 4th rd. Got forced into starting action early and sucked. I like the pickup if for nothing else because he has more upside than any other OG/OT available.
