I was just wondering who on the offensive line will be here at this time next year?

Locks to stay:

Chester Pitts
Todd Wade
Drew Hodgdon
Milford Brown
Todd Washington

On the bubble:

Steve McKinney
Zach Wiegert
Seth Wand

Already gone:

Victor Riley
Fred Weary

Believe it or not, I can see all those locks stay, with the addition of Wiegert staying too. Victor , Fred, Seth will be bubble boys and Steve will be around with less money next year or he will be gone. Just kinda what i think.

Why would you get rid of Zach Weigert? So far he's been our best offensive lineman when he's been playing.

I heard this morning on Cold Pizza and heard a few weeks ago that Jonathon Ogden is not happy with the Raven's bad performance this season and their front office cutting his brother, and he will probably either retire or leave the Ravens after this season.

So he is complaining about the Raven's bad performance? Why in the world would he go to the Texans then? That doesn't make sense.

From what I get, he is more upset about them cutting his brother, the Raven's bad season is just the icing on the cake, from what I read and hear anyway.

What does Ogden have to prove with a new team? He is a multiple time pro bowler, he has a ring and he close to 40.

I think you're "Locks to stay" list is a little too big. I would not say that Milford Brown or Todd Washington are locks at this point. So much of what happens depends on whether or not the team has a coaching purge at the end of the year. If a new coach comes in then I'd say the locks are probably only Chester Pitts (basically our best lineman), Drew Hodgdon because he's a second year guy and we obviously have needs at center, and finally Todd Wade who we'll be stuck with due to the money. Clearly we also hope we can get better performance out of him.

That's about it for true "locks". Obviously we're going to keep a bunch of these guys because you can't replace everyone in one offseason even if you need to. I wouldn't call Todd Washington or Milford Brown "Already Gone" though. I'd say almost all of our linemen go into camp on the bubble and trying out for their new coaches.

I'm sure somebody we've all written off will manage to make this team and somebody that we all think should stick will be looking for work.

from hpf.com salary page. it looks like wade would cost 6 million and change to let go. but its gonna cost us 5 million to keep him. so it would only cost us a little over 1mil more to let him go. might not be a bad time to "bite the bullet" if you dont think hes our rt tackle for the next 3 or 4 years.

its not like were gonna win a sb next year anyway.

Well if the Texans do the right thing and draft a LT in the 1st round then Wade would be expendable. You could put Pitts or the new guy over there. McKinney and Wiegert will probably be our starters at the guard positions next year. Hopefully we will draft a young guard to bring along and eventually fill one of those spots. We may be able to land a center in free agency. DHog did pretty good for a rookie but we need some insurance. REALLY fixing the OL in the draft and free agency next year will do more than trying to fix a hole here and there on the rest of the team except for the TE position. We need a good TE that can block and catch. That will go a long way in helping our OL and our offense in general.
