Right Tackle Help?!? - Bears Release Former First Round Pick

Bears release former first-rounder Chris Williams | ProFootballTalk

The Bears released their former first round pick at left tackle Chris Williams...

Per some scouting I've read, he may have been 'miscast' and is better suited as a right tackle - you think he could offer something at right tackle better than what we have?!?

Your point is valid, but the question between the lines is would he make a better right tackle for the Saints?

In addition, factor in the Saints penchant for developing offensive lineman as of late, is he a valid reclamation project?!?

Strief has played admirably, but he's more of a great utility lineman; and Charles Brown has been "other bust from USC"...

Williams is a Louisiana son, but he has been plagued with injuries. Maybe getting back to a warmer climate will work for him. I would look.

Guess it wouldn't hurt to take a look at his guy, but I am seriously not sure he is worth bringing along. I guess he could compete for a utility role with the Saints, maybe???

The question would be better suited saying "who could it hurt to take a look" and the answer to that question is drew brees lol

After watching Cutler get pounded harder than Jenna Jameson I am quite sceptical about bringing anybody in from the Bears O-line. But give the guy a workout and see what he can do.
