Sounds like we'll get some love for a little while on ESPN's morning show!

Good. I like having an actual back up center. Not just a guard that will be moved there if needed.

I'd rather a guard who can fill in at center and does very well(Lelito); a backup center is a spot that can be better utilized; say another linebacker...

It's all about depth. What if Unger goes down and Lelito is starting at Guard? Lelito can not be our only option.

Well not having a backup center on the active roster has worked for us for the past couple of years... What ifs

He was cut rather swiftly the first time around with us. Think he has improved his game enough to at least get through the 1st round of cuts this time.

And it showed last year when we had a 900 yr old center play like crap. The o-line sucked last year due to injuries. Why limit your options? Is it really going to hurt to bring him in? I would not say last years o-line "worked for us last year".
