I talked a little bit to offensive line coach Russ Grimm today about Alan Faneca and the offensive line. More details tomorrow after Faneca’s press conference, but here were a couple of notes:
– No shock, but even though coach Ken Whisenhunt pointed out Faneca can play other positions, Grimm said the newcomer will definitely play guard.
– Interestingly, Grimm was throwing out some possibilities out there and mentioned Reggie Wells playing tackle. With Faneca on board, it sounds like Wells could be in the right tackle mix with Brandon Keith and Jeremy Bridges.
– Grimm smiled when asked about all the linemen at his disposal. He loves the idea of competition, perhaps even more than Whisenhunt does. Watching Grimm work his new group of guys might be the most interesting part of the offseason.
