But they didn't waive Donald Thomas to bring Cannon onto the 53-man (Ventrone waived for the gazillionth time instead). Makes me think the coaching staff wants to see how he does with actual game-speed reps before cutting the backup.

They also might concerned about the health of some of the other OL. Or they plan on using Cannon as more of a blocking TE for the time being.

Not that I wasn't mildly surprised either than Mr. Duck stuck. I just don't think they are that worried about NFL experience when the the guy MC replaces wasn't getting on the field anyway.

By the same token, if Cannon gets some game reps against KC, in whatever role, and doesn't break anything, we could easily see Thomas gone (and Ventrone back ...... again) before the Philly game.

Hell, if Solder clears the cobwebs and Vollmer's back doesn't act up, we could see that happen before the KC game.

I guess he did not lose much weight during his recovery. Its amazing if he can get on the field. I guess they always thought he had a chance when they did not IR him.

Nice he does Beef up the O-line. I wonder if BB will give him a little playing time this week.

Speaking of which, what's Tonya Harding up to these days?

That's nice. Maybe he should start playing up to his contract then?

Impossible.

He's a Guard.

There's a reason why they shouldn't earn that type of scratch. Guards simply can't impact the game enough IMO to justify that level of pay.

That's fine too.

I'd settle with him playing to the level of a consistent NFL-caliber starter.

He hasn't done that either.

His lack of discipline (mental error based penalties) has been brutal. I literally HATE to say this but the disparity between his 10 game K year and this year has been positively Haynesworth-y

Logan needs to lose the tough guy act. Just do your job as someone likes to say.
