    what pedigree? Being a high draft pick is his only pedigree.

    the guy can't stay healthy.

    get rid of him and go with someone who might actually play.

    Can see how a tam could run behind that.

    And Brown is perfect for playing inside. His strength is run blocking.
    Dee, just out of curiosity why do you think DeCastro would make a good center? Has he ever played the position before?

    DeCastro is starting to sound like Jeff Hartings, who really was a major contributor in the last decade.

    I was going to ask if Levi had any background playing guard, but I did not know he was back on IR. IR 2 years in a row. Forget it. Look elsewhere.

    Unless he gets stronger I just dont see him staying a guard. When I watch him I see him getting pushed back consistently from many of the leagues DT's. I think he could benefit from not having a man directly over him more times than not. I had brought up the comparison of Jeff Hastings before. He too was once a guard and became an even better center. I think DeCastro has good lateral movement, he's smart, could handle the line protection calls, and would be above average at getting out in front and pulling like how the Steelers used Dermonti Dawson.

    Personally I dont think Levi Brown should have ever played tackle. He is far better suited inside at guard. His strength is run blocking not pass blocking. And in case some of you dont know he is one of the better run blockers in the league (when healthy).

    I don't ever remember hearing that about Brown but I don't pay much attention to G's nor AZ's running game. Have they every had a running game?

    News Flash!!! One player good run blocker along the O-line does not make for a successful running game.

    Levi has a base salary of $6 million next year. We don't have that kind of room on our cap. Arizona already swallowed the remainder of his signing bonus, so we would owe him nothing on our cap if we cut him after the season. Which I expect us to do.

    2.46 TE Austin Seferian-Jenkins, Washington
    3.97c ILB Shayne Skov, Stanford

    5.157 OT James Hurst, North Carolina
    5.173c RB Jerrick McKinnon, Georgia Southern
    6.192 CB Walt Aikens, Liberty
    6.215c DE Deandre Coleman, California

    Well where he only has 1 good arm maybe we can get him for 3 million next year.

    that's why I also stated I never heard Brown getting compliments for his run blocking.
