    Pats acquire OL

    From Adam Caplan's twitter feed:


    I know nothing of him. BB must have noticed something in the joint practices.

    11 starts at LT in 2007 according to WIKI, but that doesn't jibe with his NFL.com page which lists him as a guard with 12 career starts (presumably 7 at LT 2007).

    So, he and Bussey T/G to go with all the C/Gs. Mr. Mankins was a college tackle BTW, a convert.

    I see him as backup OG and potential starter if Mankins situation is not resolved.

    Rotoworld speculates that he will compete at RG.

    Quinn Ojinnaka

    Falcons signed fifth-round T Quinn Ojinnaka to a four-year contract.
    Ojinnaka, who has a build fit for zone blocking, played collegiately at Syracuse. He could be Atlanta's third tackle in his first season.

    I am a Falcons fan.... Quinn Ojinnaka played good at the guard position.... Not good at the Tackle....


    Dude was suspended over him and his wife fighting over his facebook account.

    Reiss thinks it may be for a wr as the Falcons are thin there.

    Started 1/3 of games since 2006 - looks like a solid back up at the least.

    CONTRACT INFO: 4/15/2010: Signed a one-year, $1.176 million contract.

    I'd cry if we gave them someone other than Aiken.


    Well, not actually cry, but you get the idea.

    That's our boy Dimitroff, over there: I'd be surprised if it wasn't a conditional Late Rounder...

    If not, Aiken sounds like a pretty good guess.

    No way in HELL Coach B ponies up a fresh 3rd Rounder with sterling potential like Price for a backup Lineman: That's insane, to put it kindly.

    Who do we have that's expendable anyway? Slater, Aiken, Wilhite, Sanders all seem somewhat expendable, but only the former two seem like it would be fair.

    2011 6th round pick. Just a guess. 12 starts in 4 years, personal problems, backup lineman probably not more that a 6th rounder.

    So, pretty much, if he starts over Connolly for Week 1, we can take that as a damning indictment of Connolly's pass blocking skills? :eek:

    Dante's new ammunition. If we traded just Aiken I'll be thrilled.

    when we traded away hochstein (also a back-up OL), it was for a 7th rounder. I'd imagine the compensation would be similar. After glancing at our depth chart, I could really only see Aiken being of comparable value at WR. And he did play in the game, so they were able to see his performance Thursday night. Slater has been hurt so long that I doubt it's him.
