    Lauvao has photos on someone in the front office or owner's box.

    That's the only reason I can think of that he is even still in the DISCUSSION to start on the OL.

    There were enough solid veteran OL in free agency we could have signed for the $5M that Lauvao is counting against the cap for, or even less to play LG.

    I thought that Lauvao played pretty well until he was injured. Maybe I'm thinking of someone else.

    Yeah would be nice to see if he can anchor that line, but 325 seems small in today's standards for someone we desperately need to anchor our DL. I sure hope they don't try to anchor the line with Allen!

    Allen at 6'3 and 286 is a penetrator. We can't use him as a true NT to clog up the middle and take on blockers, that's a waste of his talent, and as important he wouldn't hold up in that role.

    We are going to have to move him around based on the situation, down and distance.

    Seems pretty clear we're going to see a rotation at NT for the 12-15 plays per game we're in base 3-4. Phil Taylor is getting the most mentions from the Park, so I'm thinking he'll get the first shot at 'starting' and getting the bulk of those snaps. But I'm pretty sure that between now and opening day we're going to see a LOT of bodies rotating in and out of the middle.

    If we were talking 25-30 snaps a game I think I'd be more angsty about this than I am ... but yeah, it sure would be nice to know going in that we have a guy we know can and will do the job at an NFL level.

    Why is it so hard to find a decent NT ?
    Or is it just hard for the Redskins ?

    I know what he is, but we used Kedric Gholston as an NT, so...

    Om, the problem will be what we ran into in the playoff game aginst Green Bay last year, the Packers made no substitutions so we could not and our DL was exhausted by the beginning of the 4th Q. We need someone to rely on who can last more than a series to anchor that line, NT by committee is nice and all, but we need someone who would be ok with an entire series late in the game like the great ones do, i.e, BJ Raji when he anchored that Green Bay defense that won a Super Bowl.

    And Fear, there have only been a handful of truly great NT's in the league's history. Not an easy task to take on 2 interior OL, and last very long to boot.

    It seems the hope is for Taylor at NT but seriously doubtful that he is going to be an every down kinda guy, at least this year, after spending the last two years out because of his knees. Without a house in at nose tackle for every play maybe you just cheat a guy like Murphy near the line on the inside to help out once in awhile.

    So far it looks like the Redskins have picked up many guys that they can move around on defense without getting tagged out so that's going to help. I'm sure the defensive play calling from the sidelines will be less convoluted than it was in 2016, another help.

    Yes, it is puzzling why the Redskins continue to run a defensive system where the essential elements, NT and rush linebacker, seem to be the hardest things for this team to find.

    Something has to give in 2017 with the log-jam we have at outside linebacker.

    Add Ryan Anderson to a group that already includes Kerrigan, Galette, Murphy, etc.

    This is the year to establish who the keepers are and who we need to move on from.

    True, but Kedric goes 6-4, 330. I realize that he is not coming back, but I wouldn't mind giving him a one yr, vet minimum.

    I'm sorry, but wherever you get the size chart listing Gholston that big are stretching it...I've stood next to the man many times...he is not that big.

    From the Redskins site:
    Washington Redskins: Kedric Golston

    From the NFL:
    Kedric Golston, DE for the Washington Redskins at NFL.com

    From Rotoworld:
    Kedric Golston - Washington Redskins - 2017 Player Profile - Rotoworld.com

    From WaPo:
    https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/...=.c2b394ddaaf3

    From CBS:
    Kedric Golston, DE, Washington Redskins, NFL - CBSSports.com


    In earlier years, he played at a lighter weight. In recent years, the current weight (unless he has lost weight during the 2017 offseason).
