After the game Mike Tannenbaum needs to get to work in adding depth to a few spots by scanning the league for other team’s end of August cuts.
At right tackle Austin Howard needs another strong showing to truly lock down the starting right tackle job.

The attacker stopped his car, got out, ran up to Josh Ehrenberg, and then clotheslined him off a lawnmower. At that point, the bizarre story became truly absurd, according to Ehrenberg:
“He clotheslined me off the tractor, and [it] landed...
