    Probably the most obvious offseason change (Other than not resigning Kenny Britt) is that we will have a new starting right tackle next year. David Stewart is done with the Titans and possibly the NFL as a whole. There are a number of different directions the team can go:

    1. Draft: An OT could be taken in the first or second round to become the starter on opening day http://walterfootball.com/draft2014OT.php
    2. Free Agent: There are some good one this year http://overthecap.com/freeagents.php?Position=LT&Year=2014
    3. Byron Stingily: A late round project pick from a few years ago got some action at the end of this season
    4. Andy Levitre: Yes yes I know he is an offensive guard. However offensive linemen move around the line all the time. Damian Woody was a longtime center who made an excellent RT. Levitre played some LT early with Buffalo. And he is being paid like an OT
    5. Chance Warmack or Brian Schwekne: See comments on Levitre. Warmack/Schwenke could be an alternative to Levitre if the team wants a more physical presence at RT
    Options 4 and 5 are working on the assumption it is easier to get good guards than good tackles.

    Eugene Monroe or Michael Oher would be my FA options. If not then we definitely need to draft one early.

    Off topic but did you see how bad Levitre got pushed around today?

    Yeah. Maybe a move to tackle would be better. He can work on DEs and OLBs instead of DTs.

    Yeah he doesn't look good at G at all. I was hoping to see huge improvement in the middle when we got him but he's been a big disappointment. He doesn't seem to have any damn strength out there.

    I actually think that we will invest even more in the OL.

    Both of those guys are terrible. Monroe also wants to be a LT. That's why Jacksonville traded him, so they could move Joeckle from RT to LT.
