Isn’t this guy one of the reasons the Falcons spent two first round picks to fix the online last year?

😂 yes. Depth guy to compete for a roster spot.  Starter who they wanted to always replace on a pretty bad ol.

He couldn’t beat out either James Carpenter or Jamon Brown for a starting spot on the Falcons — only found his way back into the starting role after Brown got hurt — but he’s our presumptive Week One starter at LG. 

And let’s not mistake this for something other than what it is: he’s the presumptive starter. $4.5M (the AAV on his contract) currently puts him at about #34 on the guard salary rankings. In other words, it’s a good bit more than teams are generally paying IOL backups. 

Do we know the guarantee? That might make it more palatable. Bergstrom was terrible, and that  we have a bunch of young unknowns behind scherff and at best average Joe roullier. Boys, we got some work to do on our line, but I’m ok not paying flowers the money he received. Who knows, maybe he really did want to move home. When flowers was good he was a good run blocker, but every Game he would let guys blow right by him in pass game and watching him try to pull on outside runs was like watching molasses pour in the winter time.

We will see I think it’s a viable option in hopes that Wes is the answer. Wouldn’t hesitate to draft a OL in the kids as long as value is there

With two Wes’s you can’t go wrong!

Do two Wes’s make a right?
