The Buccaneers continued their onslaught on the free agent market, as they try to rebuild an offensive line taken apart piece by piece. The latest addition was Packers free agent offensive lineman Evan Dietrich-Smith, the team announced Friday afternoon. While he won't have to worry about being stomped by Ndamukong Suh twice a year, he...

I have to believe they have Tretter penciled in as a starter and are moving Barclay inside to back up both guard positions. Thanks for your contributions EDS - you sure were a godsend making up for the colossal screw up that was the Wells/Saturday situation.

Well damn, bettin' Aaron rodgers isn't real happy about now.

4 starting Centers in 4 years.

Will tretter step in or will there be a big shuffle in traing camp?

Whatever happens i hope they get it sorted out real early so the line can work together all through TC and Pre-season.

I'm confident in J.C. Tretter.

I'm more worried about the tackle spot. I like the depth we have but we have to see if any of them can really contribute a full season. People liked Bakhtiari but he really didn't do much last year. And does Bulaga stay on the left or do we move him back to the right? What about Sherrod?

Wait. Saturday? Who was that? Oh yeah. You mean the Free Agent that Ted Thompson signed to win the Super Bowl with? Why didn't we win that year? We had a Free Agent signing... That's all it takes, right? :-k

The Packers already stated publicly that they wanted someone bigger in there. EDS proved he could get it done, but he's nothing special.

Get on it, Ted.

Not disappointed. EDS was serviceable but with Lacy in the backfield. We need a C that can run block better, and who is bigger. EDS was about maxed when he added lbs to get to just over 300.

It's possible EDS only SEEMED good because Saturday was so bad and because our offensive tackles were so bad. Tretter better be good, because it's looking like he's the man. Any word on how much the Tampa offer was that Ted refused to beat?

The Packers did run more gap-scheme blocking last season, probably to adapt to Eddie Lacy's style. I believe EDS is a zone center, so I don't think losing him is a major blow. I also like the idea of J.C. Tretter at center.

Not entirely thrilled with this mostly due to the whole continuity thing and not because EDS is a rare commodity.

I'm all for continuity as well but not at the cost of getting better.

If Bakhtari shows he's made that 2nd year jump HE becomes a more valuable piece AND Bulaga is a better RT than anyone else on the OL. If Bulaga shows he's the better LT than how can you not make that change?

The wildcard right now is Tretter but they obviously feel he can play or they would have made a stronger move to sign EDS.

Personnel changes all the time. As long as it's BEFORE the season allowing for whatever combination earns the spots to have the pre-season to work together I don't see it as a problem. All indications were the whole Chinese fire drill last year was taking hold when Bulaga went down.

An OL can gain the continuity it needs when they start in the spring and don't play a game that counts until September. What sucks is when the season is on and this guy goes down and that guy goes down and people get moved around that continuity takes a hit.
The Bears found two better players and they were rookies but their Oline was way more better than the previous year. That's how I look at our chances. Bakhitari being better and Bulaga back=better Oline play overall. Wherever they end up playing.

And if Sherrod shows up with what they thought he could be all the better. All that's in the mix here tells me whatever five guys line up this year it's got a real good chance of being quite a bit better than last year.
