Pats acquire OL
From Adam Caplan's twitter feed:
I know nothing of him. BB must have noticed something in the joint practices.
EDIT: Two threads posted at the same time...mods please merge.
He's suspended for game 1 :
Falcons' Quinn Ojinnaka suspended over fracas with wife - USATODAY.com
But he's a viable backup type who won't kill us if Connelly or Neal goes out.
Height: 6-5 Weight: 299 Age: 26
Hooray! Any trade details?
So will this guy make the team? (I feel like I have to ask when we acquire guys like alex smith and greg lewis)
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.
its a back up offensive line man, more like a replacement for kazur than mankins..
My sarcasm stands corrected,
PFF has him as THE top rated pass-blocking guard for 2009 Here
Kaczur to IR? Might be the last time I have to correct the damned spelling of that name this year.
Rotoworld speculates that he will compete at RG.
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.
Aiken for this guy?
Or maybe the rook
Thanks and welcome.
I'd cry if we gave them someone other than Aiken.
Well, not actually cry, but you get the idea.
No chance of that..
Damn that perfidious Facebook!
Don't let Myra read this thread.
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.
just let it it out. Feel free to blubber. We won't judge...but seriously
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?
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.
