Yesterday, in releasing both Anthony Davis and Mario Henderson, the San Diego Chargers made a statement. They believe they can find a Tackle that's better than both of those guys on the open market. It's really too bad that there aren't a ton of those guys out there.
I've settled on this idea. If one backup, Mike Harris, has no experience and is a project, then the other backup should have a decent amount of (recent) starting experience and should be fully-developed. Sound fair? Yes, but (unfortunately) this isn't Narnia.
- Ryan Harris - This one seems somewhat likely. Harris started 34 games at Right Tackle for the Denver Broncos from 2008-2010. I've always viewed him as a solid RT during that time.
- Willie Smith - The 25 year old has 3 career starts, all coming last year as part of the Washington Redskins. They were probably the result of many injuries. Not much to see here.
- Lydon Murtha - What a great name. Murtha started 4 games for the Miami Dolphins in 2010 after the guys in front of him got injured. In 2009 and 2011, he watched from the sidelines.
