Don't sign Asomaugh,give the money to Volmer in a long term deal and then go all out for Jake Mathews next year.
Or Sign McKinney to a short term deal and sign Long/Armstead in the third this year and go all out and sign Jake Mathews next year.

Either way

SIGN JAKE MATHEWS NEXT YEAR
So..........what's your point?

I hope people remember that Drafts almost never pan out the 1st few season.

Strief. Serviceable vet. Has shut down Peppers and Abraham in games at LT when healthy. Fluker at RT. Future All-Pro. Draft a project LT in rounds 5-7 if available or next season in the early rounds. O-Line set for years. On a side note, what would help the o-line overall is to run the ball more and be less predictable in formations and in substitutions.

Re: Left Tackle what is the answer.

Guys, Vollmer is a RT. There is absolutely no chance that we're going to make a play for him. Bryant McKinnie makes a little sense as a possible band aid or to add some depth, but the bottom line is we have to find someone in the draft. You can't get hung up on the players that you see in the headlines either. Yes, they're there because they are either good or have upside, but they're also in the spotlight for everyone to see and drool over. Armstead is a prime example of a guy that will undoubtedly be draft higher than he should be because of media hype. Dallas Thomas, Oday Aboushi, and Luke Marquardt could all be mid to late round OT picks that would suit our needs. Keep an open mind and your fingers crossed! P.S. There is no way in hell that our first round pick isn't a defensive player! It's either a pass rusher at #15 or we trade down. Those are our only options, in my opinion.

Re: Left Tackle what is the answer.

I just heard Booby interview Strief on WWL about LT and Strief was very high on Bryce Harris (a rookie stolen from Falcon's practice squad late last year). He said he was a very talented player that few people know about.

He didn't really compliment anyone else.

Sounded to me like he thinks Harris could step into that role.
