    Green is a converted defensive tackle who played both center and guard at Auburn. One of his teammates with the Tigers was Chargers left tackle Marcus McNeill. Green’s proudest moment from college was graduating with a degree in criminology.

    Lol ^ Probably. Doesn't hurt to add depth at OL though. Plus, and let me know if I'm the only one here....but I always give an ounce more respect (whether it's deserved or not) to guys who played at the big SEC schools.

    Sounds like a great replacement for Thomas.

    We will see what the Dale Scarnecchia "School for Offensive Lineman" does for him.. probably will become all pro at least.

    He's a 4th round draft choice who started 28 games in the past 3 years. As I've said since we lost Thomas, we needed a veteran guard to replace Thomas or at least to compete with Cannon and McDonald.

    I like it. A guy who stuck in the league for a few years and has some position flexibility. If his attitude is good, which seems to be the case as witnessed by his sticking in the league several years, then like Darryl says, I can see Dante turning this guy into a pretty decent OL-man.

    I don't know much about him either, but it sounds like a depth move. San Diego's OL in 2012 was absolutely horrible.

    How long before the inevitable "He's a stiff." post appears?

    Either that, or he's in the process of having his bust fit for Canton. That's usually the this forum, and most forums, work. He either sucks or he's a future Hall of Famer. There's usually very little in between, even though that's where the answer lies with any particular discussion the majority of the time.

    the very first reply in the thread?

    "At the most he's just another guy" is a a polite way of saying he's a stiff.

    Good move. Back up OL with starting experience.

    We were a bit light in the O-line department. An inexpensive but experienced player is what we needed.

    Yup. A depth move and another body for TC. Hard to imagine anyone pushing Connolly or Mankins for starting time at this point.

    he sounds like he's pretty good. Pretty, pretty, good.

    I wonder why he was a free agent? Asking too much money? I doubt it. Seems a little strange.

    depth move......grades out as a decent pass blocker, bit of a liability run blocking, from what i've read


    back up o-line is a good thing

    I thought that for a second, but in my mind a JAG is somewhat above a stiff. Just Another Guy implies mediocre or ordinary. A stiff stinks.

    The criminology experience will be helpful if we meet the Bengals in the playoffs. He's done guard and some center so he might have some of the 2 position flexibility BB and Dante want for backups. Let's see what Dante can do with the guy.

    A JAG is nothing spectacular, just a guy doing his job, usually as a backup. For example, Deaderick and Cunningham likely qualify. The bottom dozen on our roster are usually JAGs.

    A stiff, on the other hand, is a player who shouldn't have a job in the nfl, certainly not for the patriots.

    I focused on the "at most" part of the comment I guess,

    meaning if he's at most ordinary, then he's most likely a whole lot less

    to me a whole lot less than ordinary is in the stiff catgegory
