jsonline is reporting that a contract deal with Mark Tauscher is close after had a positive tryout with the team today. In the previous post below a few hours ago, I suggested that we should cut Poppinga and sign Mark Tauscher. Now, I’m just waiting on word re Poppinga.
I’m glad that Tauscher will be rejoining this team. As I’ve said to Brother Steve, Tauscher is a very positive presence in the locker room and he’s a very smart football player. Even if he can’t contribute as a RT right away (which he may with the bye), he’s the kind of guy who could help bring along our young guys. I actually don’t think it’s a stretch to say he’d probably be a better o-line coach RIGHT NOW than James Campen.
I like that we went out and did something right away today. I’m pleased by this development.
