Just read it on the wire ...... Oh well, add him to the long and distinguished list of failed scrub offensive lineman that have been drafted by this team over the years.
Want to know how pittiful our drafting has become? We have drafted 12 olinemen this decade and only 4 have been able to start.. And one of those starters (Starks) has since lost his job to a player who is not much better if at all (Colon). And while Simmons is a "starter" I think it is safe to say that everyone here thinks that he sucks.
Of the bunch only Marvel Smith has done a decent job. The rest have been perienial bench warmers or failed to not only make our team but ANY team after being cut.
2000- Marvel Smith. Decent but far from a great or franchise LT.
2001- Mathias Nkwenti and Chukky Okobi.. Nkwenti was a joke and Okobi after YEARS of being groomed to take over not only could not win the C job but could not lock down a position on the Cardinals.
2002- Simmons. Starter and only God knows why.
2003- None taken.
2004- Starks (decent at first but leveled off quickly and has not taken the next step), Bo Lacy (flocking joke), Drew Caylor (bigger flocking joke).
2005- Essex and Kemoeatu.. Neither could win jobs when jobs were "open" to competition. I still think Kemo should have won the job over Simmons but that is just me. Essex appears to be a bust like the others.
2006- Colon and Philips. Colon is the current starter at RT but almost by default because Starks sucked so bad. I would like to see Colon at OG. Philip appears to be a joke like the rest.
2007- Cameron Stephenson.... Is he even on the practice squad??
