Levi Jones to the Redbirds?

Nfl_u_jones_600_medium

So I thought that I had heard all the offseason rumors, and anything new was going to come from the known corners--a Dansby extension, Boldin making waves, or Fitz being awesome at his camp.  I know we had discussed the Levi Jones possibility earlier in the spring, but still hearing more news about it came to me as something of a surprise. 

Len Pasquarelli of ESPN says that the Cards have had discussions with Levi Jones about joining with the team and replacing Gandy at LT.  Jones was released by the Bengals earlier this spring after struggling to recover from chronic knee issues (missed 28 starts in the past 3 years).  That being said, when he is healthy, he is a monster, and would be an improvement over Gandy and his salary of $5.8M this year. 

There would be a few issues that would come up with the signing then too.  People say Gandy is better suited to play RT, and Levi Brown is better suited as a guard, but that's an awful lot of cash being paid to the right side of the line in that case.  If (and its certainly an *if* at this point) Jones gets signed, do they cut Gandy?  Do they ask him to renegotiate and line up with Jones at LT, R. Wells at LG, Sendlein at C, Brown at RG, and Gandy at RT?  What do you guys think?  How would you deal with the situation?
