I think this is insurance for Hardwick, we need to remember that he is getting to that point in his career where he might need to miss a few games this season just to recoup from grind.
what do we have behind Nick? Baxter and Molk, and molk is coming of foot surgery to reattach ligaments, I am not sure Molk is going to be available this season, he might pull a troutman and go on IR right off the bat.
now with rex here we have a guy with NFL starting exp to backup our center, he will make this roster barring injury in TC or PS
