One thing's for sure, a FA OC is definitely cheaper than a FA OT.

I agree; it's one of the reasons I'm in favor of that, as it would be (relative to other spots, of course) cheap. Also frees up draft spots to OT/OG/DL.

And, as bad as the Bengal line is/was, it's not because of their OC.  Their problem was more on the edges.


Not so sure about THAT, though...I thought that the Bengal O-line was much less of a force this year, and I'm not sure how much might have been due to Step.

Still, however good/bad he might be, I have no doubt he's better than Mahan. If the price is right, bring his ass in.

I thought that the Browns adding Steinback and Thomas would have a major impact, as well as the negative impact for the Bengals.  Steinach apparently was a big swing factor, and IMO highlights how much we undervalue the OG spot.  With Simmons still not up to snuff, and Faneca IMO already declining, is it any wonder our line has suffered an inside-out attrition?  

I keep thinking that we'd be wise to pick up Roy Scheuning in R2-3.  Don't know why, but I think he'd solidify the line in a huge way.  One spot described him as a technician, more Logan Mankins than Ben Grubbs.  Well, fine.  I was worried about hime being "too finesse" until I saw him in the bowl game playing RT, traditionally a mauler position.  He was much bigger than I remembered, and frankly, he fucking dominated.  Good strength and foot speed.

At LG, he'd be a guy who (like Faneca) could be called on in an emergency to play OT.  And he's bigger than Colon, but then, who isn't.  Gets props for being a tough guy, not missing time, even playing through walking pneumonia.
