Additionally, Kendall appears to be our backup center and, with Rinehart in the fold, we shouldn't struggle too much if Rabach goes down. Finally, Heyer can play both tackle positions. While I'm not 100% sold on Heyer ever becoming a solid starter, he does alright if a RB, FB, or TE stays in to chip his man.

The only area that really concerns me is our LB corps. We don't have any salty, backup vets at LB.
I agree, the O line depth is at least avg. It's unreasonable to expect to have starter quality backups at each spot, but we have guys w/starting experience - Wade, Fabini & Heyer.

LB depth was an issue before the draft & MW & Rocky are both coming off injuries. Unless they really think the undrafted guys can make the team, I would think they'd at least take a long look at some vets out there.

Would love to see Lemar Marshall return, but who knows how he's recovered from his torn achilles (I think that's what he had)?

Re: RI: Blades to Have Knee Surgery

I didn't know Marshall had a torn achilles. I also heard he broke his arm. We should have never cut him. I thought he was solid. If he's available (and he never tore his achilles), we need to get him back ASAP. Next thing we know, they'll stick Jason Taylor at linebacker (which he could play) but I want to see him as an end.

Re: RI: Blades to Have Knee Surgery

Blades is having an athroscopy. Nothing serious. 2-3 weeks rest.

Of course, it does hurt his chances in his depth chart battle with Khary Campbell, but I think we'll see a lot of Blades on the field this year...he showed some talent last year.

Re: RI: Blades to Have Knee Surgery

I'd definitely take Godfrey back over Marshall. Godfrey is much more solid vs. the run.

Godfrey is certainly better at stuffing the run than Marshall, but, IMO, Marshall is better in pass coverage. I personally thought Marshall was a good, versatile linebacker. Additionally, Marshall is familiar with the scheme. I'd be quite happy if we signed him for depth.

Re: RI: Blades to Have Knee Surgery

LB depth needs to be addressed big time. Rocky has bad knees and is coming off an ACL tear, Marcus is injured a lot, HB had surgery today, K.Campbell has been around a while and never broken through on anything but special team, so that leaves a 32 year old Fletcher as our only truly reliable staple at this point. This makes me pretty nervous.

Godfrey, Marshall, Spikes, whoever. Sign someone.
