Knight of God Posted July 26, 2015 Share Posted July 26, 2015 Not saying take out a flyer on him as a starter, but maybe as a swing tackle on the cheap. Personally I wouldn't mind. We are not 100% stable at the position so maybe a little more competition wouldn't hurt. Also, it is said his greatest struggle is with the man blocking scheme and he would benefit from zone blocking.http://www.msn.com/en-us/sports/other/colts-release-gosder-cherilus-tackle-slowed-by-injuries/ar-AAdwTMd?ocid=ansspap11INDIANAPOLIS (AP) The Indianapolis Colts released starting right tackle Gosder Cherilus on Sunday, a surprising move less than a week before players report to training camp.Cherilus had been a staple of the offensive line the past two seasons. He started 29 games, including two playoff games, in 2013.But the 31-year-old Haitian struggled with injuries last season and was put on season-ending injured reserve in December. He had offseason knee surgery.The Colts hoped Cherilus would be healthy for training camp even as they plugged second-year guard Jack Mewhort into Cherilus' spot during offseason workouts. Mewhort, Indy's second-round draft pick in 2014, played tackle at Ohio State and now goes into camp as the likely starter.Cherilus spent his first five NFL seasons with Detroit.
