In this week’s show, Bill and Keith walk through each player and where they likely will play along the offensive line in the 2017 season. Starting at the center position, we ask questions like, “Does Joey Hunt even make the team?” “Can Justin Britt solidify his spot at center, and earn a second contract with the team?”
Coach Tom Cable has indicated his initial desire to move Mark Glowinski from Left Guard, where he took his snaps in 2016, over to the Right Guard position in 2017. His spot on that side may end up being contingent on the battle to take place at Right Tackle between Germain Ifedi and newcomer, Ethan Pocic, who Seattle acquired in April’s NFL Draft. Cable says he wants the best 5 linemen on the field, and that still may mean that the loser of the RT position battle, still may be one of the best five, and end up taking the Right Guard spot. Does this sound a bit complicated? Listen to the show and Bill and Keith will run down all the variables and give you some clear ideas on the most likely offensive line roster outcomes.
In the News:
