I continue to obsess about the status of Pittsburgh's oline, so here's another thought.  What if the Browns cut Hank Fraley?  Do we bring him in?  Smart, tough, though not physically gifted...he's a solid veteran leader and decent if not spectacular player.  Would he be worth it (IF they cut him) until the Penn St. kid develops?

Yes.

Hartwig to OG.  Fraley at OC.

Between Runyan (35?) and Fraley (31?), the average age for the front five skyrockets.  I'd take old and serviceable over young and shitty though.

Interestingly, I wasn't aware that Fraley was originally selected as a UDFA by Pittsburgh before being released.  He eventually singed with Philly and then with Cleveland.

I think Philly actually signed him from the Steelers practice squad.  But yeah, he was originally a Steeler UDFA.

I have often lamented the fact that we let him get away.  Seemed like the perfect "Steeler guy."  Not the most talented player, but willing to do whatever it takes to finish the job.

I don't see that attitude being a bad thing for our oline--IF they cut him.
