It didn’t take long for tackle Tyson Clabo to start hearing from teams after he was released by the Falcons.
Ian Rapoport of NFL.com reports that the Cowboys and Jaguars have already reached out to Clabo about the possibility of adding him to their offensive lines. Both teams make a lot of sense as a potential landing spot.
The Cowboys currently have Doug Free and Jermey Parnell at right tackle and neither of them impressed during the 2012 season. There have been conflicting reports about whether Free would restructure his deal, which is set to count $10.02 million against the cap, or take a pay cut in order to stay with the team. Clabo’s availability could speed up a decision on that front.
The Jaguars don’t even have the limited comfort of a Free/Parnell duo and they’ve admitted to having no clue who would be their right tackle if the season were starting anytime soon. New General Manager Dave Caldwell knows Clabo from their days in Atlanta, something that could help the tackle find a new home in the south.
Clabo will likely be hearing from other teams in the coming days and weeks since there is no shortage of teams with shortages on their offensive lines. How many of them will be pushing to make a deal before finding out whether they can land a good prospect in the draft remains to be seen, but it is hard to believe Clabo’s going to have a tough time finding a new home.
