This is literally the 6th or 7th player we’ve picked up that was part of the NFL class of 2014. Another player under 30 added.

Does this mean Morgan Moses can take his radio diarrhea to another city?

Moses shouldn't feel threatened by him, unless Moses hits a sharp decline, or this guy suddenly blossoms.
He's a journeyman, and likely just depth.
Among other things, salary also is a good indicator of the expectations. At about 5 Million a year, I would not expect a whole lot from a RT

He's here to push Moses. Hell, everyone we're signing, besides Fuller, is here to push the guys ahead of them.
As it should be.

Moses is a big, talented RT. But he needs to refocus on his job and get his selfish head out of his ass. Rivera and Del Rio may be helpful in this regard :)

Just keep thinking... if Callahan couldn’t get Moses’ head out of his ass, who could? He’s a walking penalty who uses the radio to air his grievances.

I don't really think he is as talented as he is just big. His footwork is pretty bad, he is always injured, and his penalties are just out the roof.

He can't get on much more of a decline than he did last year. This could be a "watch your back" type of move, or maybe they really want to just replace him.

Most penalized players in NFL in 2019
Moses had 9.
The "leader" had 15.
14 players had more penalties than him
20 players had either the same, or more.
Scherff only had 1 less than Moses.

I'm not a huge Callahan fan as most of you all are. He's a solid, not great OL coach in my book. Rivera and Del Rio will have this defense humming in the next couple years.

I hope you are right. I hope we don't get rid of Moses, but keep him for depth or this guy for depth. We need someone to fill in for Moses every time he limps off the field.
