Report: Teams have asked Nick Mangold about moving to guard

When the Jets released center Nick Mangold last month, Mangold released a statement saying that he looked forward to “seeing what the future holds.”

One thing the future has reportedly brought is questions about whether he’d be willing to move to another position.

Dan Graziano of ESPN.com reports that Mangold has heard from teams that are wondering if he would switch to guard. At this point, Mangold has rebuffed those thoughts in hopes of continuing to play¬†a position he’s played well enough to be named to a pair of All-Pro first-teams since entering the league as a first-round pick in 2006.

Mangold’s play hasn’t been at quite that level in the last few years, but he’s remained effective enough to think he’d be a good option for someone during the 2017 season. If that doesn’t materialize, however, Mangold may be learning some new tricks while acclimating to a new team.

    As a close friend of the organization Nick needs to sign with a veteran team as his poor attitude in the locker room will not be tolerated. He needs a strong OL room where he can focus on football, not locker room politics.

    Clearly the Bengals want Mangold to play Guard because they are too cheap to sign their own free-agent who is quite good. So much for the “we keep our own” mantra.

    He should sign with miami as a guard and eventual backup for always hurt pouncey.

    I wonder if he could be a center for the Vikings and move Berger back to guard?
