I still have a good feeling on Butler if he can stay healthy. To me, that RG spot is the weakest link, by far.
When Brisiel went out last year, it killed us. Caldwell just wasn't up to the challenge. BUT... it came out that Caldwell was playing on two bum ankles at the time.

Kubes alluded to that in one of his interviews.

I think we've got 4 players duking it out for 2 spots on that right side. Right now, the jobs are Butlers and Caldwell's to lose but I think they're going to be seriously pushed by Brooks and Newton.

I think Newton's development (along with Butler's steady play) was why they felt comfortable with letting Winston go.

But I think Brooks could push for RG OR RT. I hope he turns into one of the steals of this draft. I'm really excited to see his development.

I reckon you might be right about Caldwell's wheels. We'll see. Agreed on all points. Good post PN

it's just hard to tell with Caldwell right now, we are going to just have to wait untill preseason and see how they do. Remember how bad Myers looked playing on his ankle sprain a couple of years ago and we were all screaming for a replacement. Nobody is screaming now, Hopefully Caldwell has the same rebound.

Are we really considering starting a right side named Gump (RG Antoine Caldwell) and But (RT Rashad Butler)???

C'mon, Brooks!

I'm pretty sure what Kubiak is looking at (Kubiak & Dennison I guess) is totally different from what we'd be looking at. I remember when they picked up Wade & he looked awful to most of us (if I remember right).

Kubiak was pretty confident about starting him at LG & he played like a beast that season. You'd have never known going by that preseason.
