One Guy Left to Take a Look At

Well we got one answer at quarterback, but now we're left with how our offensive line will do. There's one guy out there who could help out our Offensive Line... That man is Lydon Murtha.

Murtha was a 7th round pick out of Nebraska back in 2009 before being signed off of Detroits PS by the Miami Dolphins. He played nine games in Miami, starting 4. In 2010, he allowed one sack over the course of 237 snaps. In 2011 a toe injury kept him off the field.

He can play both Tackle positions, with one start coming in relief of Jake Long in 2010. Time is running out to pursue him since Jake Long has been sidelined for a few days and could possibly miss their Week One game against the Houston Texans.

He could possibly be an upgrade over D'Anthony Batiste, or even shore up the right side of the offensive line if the Cardinals don't want to throw fourth round selection Bobby Massie into the fire just yet.

*UPDATE*

Jeremy Bridges out for the season on IR. Murthas chances just got boosted!
