This is where Lelito would have come in handy as Ungers backup. He played better at C than G.

Re: And so it begins.... Max Unger out

From BleacherReport....

The center market in 2017 wasn't especially robust to begin with. After a couple of days of a weak class being picked over, the best shot NFL teams have at upgrading at the position is probably in the 2017 NFL draft.

1. Nick Mangold: If there's a quality starter left in the free-agent market, it's likely Mangold, whom the New York Jets let go after his injury-marred 2016 campaign. However, the former first-round pick is also a seven-time Pro Bowler who was at one time arguably the best in the business.

2. Brian Schwenke: The 25-year-old Schwenke started 28 games for the Tennessee Titans over the last four years. He was squeezed out in Nashville, but a change of scenery could be all the young center needs to take the next step.

3. Ryan Wendell: In 2012, PFF graded Wendell as the best center in the AFC while he was with the Patriots. That was a while back, and he wasn't as good in 2013 or 2014 and barely played due to injury in 2015 and 2016. Someone will give him a chance to try to recapture past glories.

4. Joe Hawley: The 28-year-old isn't a great center. Or even an especially good one. He is, however, hard-nosed and has started 52 games over the past six seasons with the Buccaneers and Falcons.

For a rent-a-player signing I'd take any of these 3, but not Wendell. Maybe these guys don't grade out as A plusses, but being a starter in this league does mean something.

Re: And so it begins.... Max Unger out

Saints will look at Senio Kelemete and Cameron Tom before bringing in Nick Mangold...

Mangold's agent will likely start to build a market with Saints division, conference rivals...

Unger out and Stephone Anthony starting over, cue the talking heads on the Jimmy Graham trade...
