Mike Munchak spoke to John Glennon about the changes they want to make in the interior of the offensive line, and specifically about how they most likely won't take a guard of center in the first round:
"I don't think we'd take an offensive lineman with the first-rounder this year because usually it's a tackle if you (pick an offensive lineman in the first round) - unless you have a really special center or guard," Munchak said. "But for us, we're not really in the tackle market right now. We just signed Mike Otto back, and we're happy with Mike (Roos) and Dave (Stewart). We're pretty solid there, so I don't think there's much of a chance of that happening. But from then on, you leave all options open."
I completely agree with that logic. Better news in the same interview, Munch all but says that Jake Scott is history:
"You never know what's going to happen with free agency, and if we address anything there with the offensive line or not," Munchak said. "Jake Scott is a free agent, so we know we have one guy who definitely has a possibility of not being here because of that."
Rob Birnoas doesn't expect the league to change the highly unpopular kick-off rules, largely due to a 50% drop in concussions on kick-offs compared to 2010.
Here's a recap of Paul K's AFC South chat.
