  • If I can read between the lines, F. Lamp is the 6th lineman of that offense
    The 6th lineman of an offense should be able to play T or G
    F. Lamp is an upgrade over Wiggins, at least...


    • Not sure what lines you are reading through to get that conclusion! He'll be our starting guard in the season opener.


      • They are preparing as if he COULD be the 6th OL.

        They are also letting him compete for the starting LG spot. Presumably, he would be switched to another position if that gets our 5 best OL onto the field. I don't know why everyone is trying to read so much into this. It is a competition and the coaches have not preselected the winner. They will let it play out till closer towards the end of camp, and let the rest of the chips fall where they may.

        All that being said, I agree with Blue, in that they probably see him as a more natural OG. But there have been plenty of OG who have been forced to play OT from time to time, and some of them did a pretty good job.


        • Wow, a conditional pick to try out a player with experience at a position of need. Brilliant. TT, take note.

          The New York Jets are continuing to add to their offensive front, as it was reported on Monday that they have traded for former Baltimore Ravensoffensive guard Alex Lewis.

          According to Manish Mehta of The New York Daily News, the Jets gave up a conditional seventh-round pick in 2020 for Lewis, who was about to be placed on waivers. The Jets anticipated that Lewis would draw interest on the open market, which is why they quickly decided to give the Ravens something in return for him.

          Lewis was drafted by Baltimore in the fourth round of the 2016 NFL Draft. He started his college football career at the University of Colorado, where he played offensive tackle, guard and even some blocking tight end. After two seasons, he decided to transfer to Nebraska, where he started at left tackle.

          Once in the NFL, Lewis was moved inside to guard and started in eight contests in his rookie season. The following preseason, Lewis suffered a shoulder injury which forced him to miss the entirety of 2017. Last year, Lewis played and started in 10 games for the Ravens.
          Moving to LA is not a good business decision, it’s a death sentence.
