    Ugh Cordy Glenn to the Bengals.

    The Bengals have lost both of their guards in FA (McGlynn and Livings). You know if Glenn falls to them they will take him with one of their mid-first round picks. It was bad enough that we won't get him. Now, if he goes to the Bungals, I'll throw up a little in my mouth.
    Even if Bill Belichick was getting an atomic wedgie, his face would look exactly the same.

    Not to worry...we can now re-sign Kemo on the cheap...

    Fortunately for us there are quite a few strong guard prospects in this draft. I'd wager the deepest guard class in a good long while. I just want free agency to be over and the draft to get here already.

    I'm sure they'll try to pick a OG somewhere in the middle rounds to compete in camp. Too many holes to fill to take one in round 1...

    I totally disagree there if then can get their hands on Glenn or DeCastro otherwise i see them taking one in round 2 or 3.

    Steeler Nation in general would prefer 2 new starting guards, however local media in the Burgh says the FO
    is content with the starting OL- for now.

    I agree that they could take one (if there's one to be taken to their liking of course) in round 2 or so- that's why I was saying mid- rounds- anyway, they are not going to be drafting multiple OG's in the draft, because they more than likely would just be cut anyways.- See Urbik for an example. In my opinion, they have to let Legs play more than he has at LG. They must like him as starting material considering he's played both OG positions and C. He's about the strongest man on the team. That's been reported too. He'll be fine at pulling- if ever given the chance- with Haley in there now- we'll see what the formations and plays he runs. Hopefully it's more man blocking up front on running plays. The fans just can't blame the OG's for not scoring in the RZ. That's just a cop out. It all starts with the coaches and how they put their players in situations to succeed. Can't execute a poorly called formation and play....

    I like Foster at one OG spot.

    If Legurskyu has to start? I would prefer he move to center and Pouncey play LG.

    well, that ain't gonna happen.

    I would prefer we keep our All-Pro center right where he is and instead draft an OG early and let him compete with Foster and Legs for the two starting OG positions.

    The Bengals signed former Carolina guard Travelle Wharton to a 3 year contract over the weekend. He's been a starter for the Panthers for the last 8 seasons.

    That is helpful. Hopefully, they sign another UFA G with all of that cap space (and not Mike Wallace).
