as the details came out today, it was more about money than anything else. i still think Slauson is very tough but talent-wise, average.
whatever we think, Vlad is in the teams plans. as a jumbo te or Maybe at RG when Moore hangs em up.
The funny thing is I posted that before the announcement came out about Slauson being named starter, so I'll freely admit that didn't do much to help the point I was trying to make. My only point was I wouldn't expect a game 1 of the preseason depth chart to influence anyone's opinions on a player one way or the other, particularly since it seemed as though it was primarily built off of adding the rookies to the bottom of last year's depth chart.
