Offensive line news: Phil Loadholt retires, Anthony Davis to un-retire

Another player retired before the age of 30, but yet another is returning from retirement. Could Anthony Davis be the upgrade at right tackle the Giants have been looking for? For everyone who wants the New York Giants to upgrade the right tackle position, the 2016 off-season has been torturous. A number that likely includes Jerry Reese. In free agency, the Giants showed interest in Donald Penn and Russell Okung, but the two veteran left tackles opted to sign with teams that would allow them to to stay on the left side. In the draft, the Giants were (reportedly) very interested in Michigan...

Position preview: Can Giants win with current offensive line?

No upgrades have been made, much to the chagrin of fans New York Giants fans have waited ... and waited ... and waited ... and waited some more, all in vain for the team to do something to upgrade an offensive tackle position that was a major weakness in 2015. The first wave of free agency came and went. The Giants spent major money on defense, but apparently didn’t even dip their toes into the tackle waters. Later opportunities came with veteran tackles Russell Okung and Donald Penn. The Giants flirted with both and even had Okung into New Jersey for a visit. Still, those opportunities...

Seahawks 16 for ’16: Can J’Marcus Webb help stabilize offensive line?

Webb looms as a big part in the line’s makeover, as the Seahawks envision the 6-foot-7, 331-pounder taking over at right tackle. That allows the Seahawks to move Garry Gilliam to left tackle, where they think he can be a long-term replacement for Russell Okung.

Jets Roster Analysis: Can Ryan Clady Stay Healthy and Produce?

SAM linebacker: The new nickel, or why the Seahawks didn't replace Bruce Irvin

Five cents on how come the Seahawks showed so little emphasis at strongside linebacker Among starting positions where the Seattle Seahawks are potentially weakest in 2016, offensive line gets the most juice. Probably deservedly so, given that unit’s struggles last year coupled with the losses of Russell Okung and J.R. Sweezy in the offseason. But whereas those problems and defections may not be entirely resolved by the introduction of rookies and lower-tier free agents, at least we can see where the team took movements toward a solution (however worrying the outlook). The Seahawks...

Who won’t the New York Giants move Ereck Flowers to right tackle?

Giants have maintained Flowers is their guy at left tackle, even though that is making it harder for them to find the second tackle they need The New York Giants have spent much of the offseason flirting with veteran offensive tackles. Russell Okung, Donald Penn and Eugene Monroe come to mind. The Giants, though have been steadfast in refusing to offer the biggest enticement they could aside from money. They have stubbornly insisted on leaving Ereck Flowers at left tackle despite his struggles, as a rookie, instead apparently telling veteran left tackles they would have to play on the right...
