Yeah, 9 snaps last year, and 2 fill in's in 2012 does not inspire much confidence. He would be one of the vets who come in with no guarantees and a longshot to make the team.
We're bringing in some real nobodies for workouts but all that is left now is a list of scrubs.
Hopefully there will be some better players available when teams cut down to 53 in late August.
Well Satale and Colledge have been starters most of their career so I don't think they are nobodies. Vallos on the other hand who has 2 starts in the last 4 years is definitely a nobody. He was promising when he first came into the league with Seattle but never developed.
The best of this bunch is Colledge but none of this guys is going to get much of contract .
True, but this GM seems to see something in "nobodys". Who would have thought about bringing in Shelly Smith and paying him starter money?? Shelly is a bigger "nobody" than several names on that list of centers. So maybe he knows something we don't, or then again maybe he just wants to see Ryan in a body cast...
Shelly is barely getting starter money.
$2.5 in 2014
$3.0 in 2015
doesnt even crack top 25 paid Guards in 2014
Makes Samson look like Mike Webster.
Actually he does crack the top 25, at number 22 in base salaries
Body cast? He'll be in a coffin if we don't get our o-line shored up.

We may as well bring Seth McKinney and Tim Ruddy in for a tryout too. Hell, bring in Marc Colombo while we're at it.
Not sure how a guy that has never been a starter except as injury replacment gets that money
Market sets the value.
31st if we are going off full salary.
I understand that aspect but the only reported offer was from us. New England did not make an offer.
I think its beyond hard to set the market value for a guy with his limited experience starting.
I mean if all u say is market sets value than no guy is ever given a contract that is more than it should be.
Offensive linemen with much more success and experience than him have been paid much less in the so called market.
I think its to easy just to say market value, because if any team pays any price someone can call that market value.
Therefore no one can be overpaid
The only bit of optimism I can offer is Beaton will be evaluating these guys that are coming in for a try out and what we have.onder:
Coach Larsen up!
It's safe to say that Benton has a monumental task in front of him with our rag-tag group we call an offensive line.
Amen to that brother!
