Right now you have Cooley, Davis, Paul. We dont really know what Paul can do blocking from the bookend position, when we need help out on the line, or when we are running jumbo/goal line packages. Zo could have played a big role in some of that stuff.

Maybe part of the reason they didnt release Cooley over the weekend was that they relaized we might be asking our TE's to help out the oline early/thoughout the year a lot more than we all would like. Not tryin to rehash Cooley vs Davis blocking debate but i think the coaches view Cooley as the better blocker.

Keeping RGIII upright, healthy and confident is the most important thing this year, regardless of the cap cost.

I don't think so. Goff was a long shot to begin with and Zo is learning TE only for absolute emergencies

Re: We've got big trouble on the OL.

I also thought Cooley was going to be in more of a FB/H-Back role than TE. He dropped some weight, so O-line won't work for him.

I think we're likely to see him restructure his contract to stay than being traded. Of course, there's always outright release but I'd really hate to see that.

He could have a good year, his salary vs. injury history is just hurting him.

Why would he joke about such a thing? Rabach is available and we do need linemen.

Thank you for the info.

Well, that stinks. Loved the idea of having Williams and Brown as "bookends" on our OL. Like Samuels and Jansen.

You could pay *me* a lot less to be picked up and launched into the backfield every play. (Of course I'd have to be taught how to make protection calls on the line. And I wouldn't survive the first three downs...)

Bringing Rabach back would be worse than bringing Stephon Heyer back to fill our vacancy at RT. Casey hasn't played since we cut him. He failed a physical with the Ravens last season. He was good, but all good things...

edit: And I think Monty outplayed Rabach as a sub, against who the Titans?

Guess not, but it could also be a contingency plan that's being put in place for worst case scenario.

Hoping to hear something soon

LOL, heck might as well suit up George Starke, his a$$ is a Redskins park more than the Shanahans.

Re: We've got big trouble on the OL.

Will be interesting to see what they can do now to bring in a player. I bet Bruce Allen and the rest of the FO would have liked to use whatever money they can recoup from JB's contract in FA this year.

Re: We've got big trouble on the OL.

Bruce and Mike have been trying to find o-linemen, we need to see what our draft picks can do, including the still developing rookies from last year. I am not hitting the panic button or indicting the Shannahans for this situation. They took a calculated gamble on Brown and Kory is still recovering. Beck's tenure as starting QB scewed the o-lines sack numbers. They were not as bad as the sack total suggests.

Re: We've got big trouble on the OL.

Personally I'm not sure what Brown would cost the team at this point but I'd cut him. He's simply taking up a roster spot and not providing enough in return. He'll never be a 16 game player.

Kory L. I thought they just gave him a night off....so what did he do come in the next day and injur himself? and Smith? I'm not in panic mode since its the beginning of camp but the team needs to look for quality back ups/starters vs. bringing in players like Black who have traveled around the league quite a lot. If he was any good someone by now would have kept him. Especially Houston and they cut him while running a similar scheme we do.
