Couple of things on this.  It must be noted that's 2 starting O-lineman gone from the Falcons this season.  Clabo is an interesting option at RT for the Bucs, in my opinion. 

As for the rest of the Falcons, this team clearly knows their window is closing.  The signings of 30+ old Osi and Jackson are last ditch attempts to win a Super Bowl and have something to show for the last 5 winning seasons.

The Falcons are already in cap trouble - and like the Bucs, have no CBs (other than aging Samuel).  The contract extension of Ryan will be huge and will most likely tie up their cap for years to come.

This is one team the Bucs must bring down in 2013.  And I say sign Clabo at a reasonable price.  He's a better option than Dotson.

Clabo would be an interesting option. Dotson was signed at a swing tackle price so no need to worry aboht what hes getting paid. Clabo seems to be declining some though so im not sure what all he has left. Hes in his 30s so it could go either way.

Was wondering when we would see "sign Clabo" threads.

Is he really an upgrade at RT...his best year was in 2010.  Since then his play has gone downhill.

Better in the run game, which fits our needs and despite his age would be an upgrade. If they can make the $ work he would a good fit at a position that needs help.

Wonder if the falcons are regretting trading the farm Julio Jones.

He's still very good.

FRG is the most logical poster on this board.  You guys just don\'t like where the logical conclusions take you.

Not sure how high Dom values drafting OL but if they don't upgrade RT in FA they can snatch Fluker in first round that would be a great move.
