Now I know the crew here at WGC loves itself some lineman analysis/conversation... so in that spirit, I thought I'd ponder if the Bears will go after an available OT, gven the injury to Chris Williams. As well as the line held up after Omiyale moved to LT, I'm not confident it will continue to do so as teams adjust the Bears' mid-game adjustments when they have the chance to look at game film. And if nothing else, it would be nice to move Shaffer back to a "utility lineman" role where he can fill in at OG or OT in case of injury.
There are three guys on the street right now that have started at tackle in their careers: Tony Ugoh (formerly of the Colts), Mike Gandy (formerly of the Caridnals), and Marcus McNeill (a restricted FA holdout for the Chargers). McNeill is probably the best of the 3, but has not been given permission to seek a trade and even if he were would cost $$$$ plus a draft pick. I guess there's always Orlando Pace, who if nothing else is familiar with the offense.
So who do you all think the Bears should go after?
