Offensive Line News

The Washington Redskins inked offensive tackle Jon Jansen to a five year deal, ensuring that run blocking will continue to be one of their strengths. I was honestly just blown away by a few of those late season games as, apparently, were the opposing defenses' front sevens, as Ladell Betts tore things up. Betts deserves a lot of credit, but the key thing I noticed was the blocking he got, from the offensive line, but also from the tight-ends and Mike Sellers the fullback, and even a few wide receivers. The image of little James Thrash just leveling someone still sticks in my head. That's how you run block.

Meanwhile, Mike Preston of the Baltimore Sun Reports that the Baltimore Ravens are looking to play hardball with right tackle Tony Pashos in contract negotiations. They believe that Pashos is fairly replaceable, despite strides he made last year. They're right. The only potential problem here is that with Hall of Famer Jon Ogden considering retirement, the team might have to replace both starting tackles. Adam Terry can probably step in at one position, but then that levels the other, and also a void in terms of the first guy off the bench. I'm fine with letting Pashos go, but only if Ogden stays, and only if they can then address this position in free agency or the draft. Pashos isn't exactly an All-Pro, but I do think it's important that they make sure there is some level of continuity and don't just throw a bunch of inexperienced nobodies out there at one of the most crucial and yet perplexingly underrated positions in football.
