Move Armstead to RT and plug Peat at LT. That is all he know and the only position he has ever really played. Plus the times he filled in at LT he looked pretty darn good for a rookie.

I knew this kid will need time to develop outside the LT position.

If he does not hold a starters job and at the very least rate out a serviceable by season end then I would be very worried about this kids long term potential. That was my game plan when we drafted the kid.

Year three he should have it all down pat and roll into camp as a starter was my worse case for him as a RT.

Why haven't we signed Slausen yet?

My guess is that his phone is ringing and he is weighing offers
we have about $3 million, but Loomis can make that work

the other factor is that at 7-9 X 2 we aren't exactly the marquee choice anymore, and maybe not even top 5. If he wants to "win now" we might have difficulty landing him

I'd think Drew would really like to pitch in on this one.

Re: Bears release Matt Slausen

Can the rookie UDFA OG not do the job? We signed like four of them.

You might have answered your question there
Let's hope one can.

Even though we stacked up in OL after the draft, I would still love this signing. It would only leave one spot left to fight for as far as guard is concerned. Make it happen Loomis!

At the guard spot, I'd prefer a seasoned vet over a UDFA and Matt would fill that void... very well.

Re: Bears release Matt Slausen

He is a plug and play player. This seems like a no brainer to me. We have some serviceable backups now but we need at least one starter and I believe he's it. Of course I've never heard of him before but I'm willing to proclaim him the next pro bowler form the Saints.
