    A little bit about him:

    And no surprise, he was on Denver. Sounds like a solid player that could help us out though.

    the problem is our need along the o-line is at tackle and center not guard...with pitts and weary we're actually pretty set

    If he knows the blocking schemes and the playbook and can provide depth at a reasonable cost, don't hesitate to get him.

    yeah but i don't think he's gonna come as cheap as other players...and the coaching staff really seems to like the kid they got during the season jackson...i mean the guy is 30 and is probably gonna ask for a mil plus per year to sign...that's way more than i think we need to be spending on a position that isn't of need

    Wow...... I didn't realise Cooper was a FA...

    & they just traded away their only 1st round offensive linemen.

    It must be pretty easy to find an OL to fit the Broncos scheme, if they've never drafted a lineman earlier than the third(Cooper was drafted in the fourth) with the exception of the guy they just traded+a 2nd round running back+this years 5th round pick for one 2nd round Corner.

    I don't mind Chester at LG but I think we'd do well to be in position to have someone challenge Fred at RG. Granted, I think Fred improved the last six or so games of last year but still... if we can do better, I'm all for it.

    Wasn't Fred a center? If we could bring in Carlisle and shift Weary back to Center...and not have to start McKinney on the line.....That is a start there in itself. That's like three moves signing one player.

    was thinking the same thing until i saw you posted it. not sure how much time weary has had at center at the pro level, but i'd be interested to see.

    Not a bad thing to have many good Guards on our team. I'd rather a good Tackle or Center more though. I saw him on Denver's FA list and it sparked my interest.

    I'd take him for the right price...would'nt overpay too much though.

    Plus we released Ephraim. I hope we can resign him later for cheaper and that's why we did it. Bedell isn't he one of our FA too though?

    I'm also hoping we address the line via the draft as well...either C or T

    Cooper can run block with the best of them, has trouble with a bull rush, would need help in that area, would be a great pick, probally cheap.

    Salaam was not released--he was playing on a one year deal and so became a FA.

    I will try to find a link but I thought he played RT for the broncos last year. So the only question is which former broncos is going to replace Payne? Meyers?
    Moulds= Lelie
    Wiegrat=Carslie
    Payne=Meyers

    That is just cold man.

    I hope we get Carlisle especially if he has potential to play some tackle as well as guard.

    I would like to see: Spencer, Pitts, Weary, Carlisle, Winston.

    Unless we draft a OL, I would like to see Kalil if miracles happen and he lasts till our #2 pick.

    Right now I don't think we can be real picky about getting any decent/good offensive lineman. Frankly, I will take what we can get.
