    Agreed. Handing the LT to Adams who already has motivation issues was a very bad idea. Bringing in Starks will certainly make the transition less bumpy. And if Starks is healthy I see no way Adams wins the starter position.

    Awesome...now Mike Adams has legit competition for the LT spot...I don't want anything handed to the kid...he should have to work for it...if he earns it, great...if not, he can learn and be ready to shine next year. And we also now have legit depth at tackle regardless of whether Starks or Adams is starting (so we don't have to move Colon back from guard to tackle and shake everything up if one of our starting tackles in injured). Great, great news!!!

    At this point, I'd take that too...Suisham really needs legit competition.

    Agreed. And wouldn't it be a real kick in the ass to any kicker that loses a competition with Swishy? Unless he was dealing with some kind of injury that no one was made aware of last year, there has to be next to zero confidence in him with our coaching staff.

    Great News.

    We have a proven LT also Ben is comfortable with Max Starks at LT. Ben is close to Willie Colon and Max Starks. Competition at LT during TC looks promising.
