At least we have better depth at the OT position. I'm not happy that we aren't spending a 1st round pick on our immediate upgrade at RT... and eventual long-term starter at LT. But I understand/appreciate what they're trying to do.
I'm with you on that. I still harbor a hope that they'll surprise me and pick a OLT in round one but I no longer expect it.

I think they are probably in position to take BPA now. They could surprise us and take someone at a position that we least expect just because they think he's BPA.

With LOT out of the running, maybe the Safety or a pass rusher? Maybe even the TE from Bama or the QB from Clemson? Who can say.

This season, Slauson will stabilize our line, while playing for his final contract. I hope Tuerk/Clark/Pulley show something, for I have pined for young interior Olinemen since when we knew Hardwick was about done !
Pulley huh.............I sure hope Pulley roided up errrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr rrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr

.....added healthy bulk to his frame this offseason. That's what I meant. Of course.

As Boltnut stated, Starks was on a one-year "show me" contract with the only money lost being his $160,000 signing bonus.

It would cost the Chargers $19 million extra cap dollars ($25 million in dead money - $6 million cap current cap charge) to cut Okung this year.

Theory 1 turned out to be the path (release before the roster bonus is due on the 17th).

Looks like they will be seeking an OT during the first 2 days of the draft, which is good news to me.

Or ..... (gulp) ....they are going with Barksdale at RT again.

Didn't one of the guys who covers the Chargers for the UT say early last season that the Bolts were really high on Tyreek Burwell and saw him as a future starter at tackle?

No chance the Chargers kick the tires on good ole Ryan Clady, right?... too many injured bookends in our recent years...
