To those saying it's a camp body, plenty said the same about Bobby Hart when we signed him.

We may be cutting somebody, but it ain't Boling or Glenn.....

Well I'd say it's a safe bet to say we will be cutting somebody.

But I agree Glenn and Boling won't be among them.

If Glenn wins the LG spot and we already have a much cheaper backup in John Jerry, where do you see Boling going? RT? I just don't see it. He's going to be behind without practicing, and the coaches love Hart. We paid Hart to start. It's possible we keep Boling as a backup, but $5 million is starter money.

Substitute Glenn if Boling wins the job. He's making $9 million. We'll see soon enough.

Boling is still our best lineman, both in terms of versatility and availability. His current injury not withstanding, if it is something that does not retire him, he will be on the 53, either as a starter or a backup.

5 mil isn't a bad price for a guy that can come in off the bench and play anything on the OL outside of Center

I honestly think Boling could pick up C too if asked.
I love mock drafts!

I agree.  Also, if this team has any sort of real success this season, having a guy like Boling that can come in and be a good starter on perhaps a stretch run, is a very valuable asset to have on the team.  Plus, having him to at least start the season on the bench might allow for a more complete healing process to happen in his body.

I wrote Jerry off when we first signed him and didn't think he had a chance of making the 53 man roster. But I think I was wrong to do so.

Hopefully the year off did wonders for him physically. I believe Turner when he says he likes size. And a new coaching staff bringing in a familiar veteran and them making the team is not rare.

If we break camp with 10 OL on the 53 I think Jerry has a good chance of being one of the 10. If we only keep 9 then his chances drop.

Jonah, Cordy, Price, Miller, Hart, Boling, Jerry, Hopkins, Westerman, MJ (Redmond suspended)
