    I’m riding your coat tails…Good value, good mentor and maybe good recruiter. I would rest easy with Mangold in the fold…Freakin’ cut Evan Smith already.

    How many centers is too many? Look on the other side of the ball if you want to add another jet…

    And that’s a sub-point also…. I’d cut Evan Smith as well….. However, Mangold had a rough year physically last year. The point of holding onto Smith at least through Camp if a kid steps up who can backup the play at guard/tackle. Which Evan would be 3rd center/BU OG….. Then he’s a goner!

    I much rather keep Evan Smith and dump Hawley, EDS can play center just as good as Hawley and can also play guard if needed. And why would we need Mangold with Marpet making the move to center?

    I’ve never read anywhere (Ali’s was a permanent move to Center) That they think he can do it. But, they also were going to put their BEST 5 OLman out there. Maybe Ali at this time is more important at Guard than to mess with it until we can get another ROG in here!

    http://m.buccaneers.com/videos/videos/Watch-Ali-Marpet-Press-Conference/01ea07b1-7ac9-4265-a535-dc8f5a227997 All signs point to Mangold having zero chance of being signed by the Bucs.

    I’ve been saying grab Mangold all off season. We are all assuming that Marpet is going to be great at center. I’m no expert on offensive line play but is that transition easy? I’d rather keep Marpet at guard get Mangold for a year or two and draft a center next year or sign another proven FA.  Idk, maybe Marpet kills it at center and it’s not a big deal but I think it’s a safer play to grab a vet center and keep Marpet at guard.

    This offensive line needs to get younger, not older.  We have too many over the hill (never up the hill) grizzled vets there already.  Hawley is useless because he can’t play guard.  E. Smith is ok until we find a better C/G backup.  Dotson needs to be replaced sooner rather than later.  I wouldn’t delay Marpet’s transition to C for one year or less of a beat up Mangold.  He was the center that I think Ali can become.

    Sweezy has played RG his entire carreer and they are happy with Pamphile at LG.

    Mangold is still a FA because teams want him as a guard but he wants to stay at center. I’d sign him as a C and just move marpet back to guard. Boom major upgrade.  Would be similar to mankins and be an improvement for a year or 2 which i would be fine with

    I don’t think teams work this way. They don’t make a lot of noise sbout moving a young talent from G to C (in part so they can play a FA at that G position) and then unravel it all for a 33 year old injured C. He is 33, injured, and apparently has not played well (according to the Ravens) for two years:

    “Mangold’s health a concern

    Free-agent center Nick Mangold took a free-agent visit to the Ravens in early April and while it was said to have gone well, there’s been no developments since. Perhaps, Mangold’s health is a major reason. In an interview with SiriusXM NFL Radio this week, the 33-year-old called recovery from an ankle injury that prematurely ended his 2016 season a “slow grind” and said it’s taken “a lot longer” than he’d expected. Mangold hasn’t played that well the past two seasons and if there are ongoing concerns about his health, you can see why the Ravens have stood pat.”
