    Brown seems more likely to actually hit the FA market. And would probably give Albert a good run for the LOT spot.

    Jared Gaither, in Baltimore, is another great possibility. While he says he wants to return to The Ravens, he might be lured by the promise of LOT money, over the ROT offers that The Ravens will be looking at.

    And Bushrod, of The Saints might be available too.

    I prefer, for any OT prospects, that they have the abilty to compete for the LOT spot, as well as ROT.

    My question is are these guys long-term solutions or just a short term fix?

    Gaither is 24. Bushrod 26. Brown 29.

    Any one of them could be a long-term solution.

    Gaither was the OT that we didn't put in a third round tender for in the supplemental draft a couple years ago.

    He would be at the top of my list among FA OTs.

    i would take gaither in a heartbeat.i really hope they make a move on the o-line in free agency.or even the draft just not the 21st overall pick.who are the free agent centers on the market

    The problem is all these guys are LT's & I'm not sure that they are going to willing to come to KC to play Right Tackle. Plus they more than likely would get better offers to play LT somewhere else.

    Gaither is so injury prone. Got great upside. Maybe bring him in put #77 on him ( seems to be a charmed # for Chiefs LT's that have worn it, if you know Chiefs history ) and his physical fortunes might change. However, I'd want him at LT as he was pretty good at that position when he did play.

    I just looked it up. That 3rd round pick was spent on Tank Tyler. I suppose hind sight is 20-20, but Willie Roaf had retired just a couple years before and the need for an OT was there. And it don't look like Gaither will be going anywhere:

    The one thing I would say in defense of herm's pick of tank was that our run defense was historically bad and we needed some help up front in a big way. The pick didn't work out for multiple reasons, but it address a big position of need at the time.

    That may be the one and only time that I defend herm.
