I characterized the lack of an obvious starting right tackle as the 'silent problem' back in early February. Well, that problem is starting to make a tiny bit of noise. From Pro Football Weekly's 'Whispers' section comes the following:
With the Packers thinking Mark Tauscher probably won’t be ready to play again until the 2009 halfway point following his mid-January knee surgery, team sources tell us the free-agent tackle remains a long shot to be re-signed. As for the top candidate to possibly replace Tauscher as the starting right tackle, we hear it probably no longer is second-year pro Breno Giacomini, who is expected to miss a substantial portion of the team’s offseason program after undergoing arthroscopic ankle surgery Feb. 11. Word is the most likely scenario could be moving either Daryn Colledge, the starting left guard last season, or second-year pro Josh Sitton outside.
That last sentence should scare the bejeebus out of any Packer fan.
