Read here. I think this makes sense (as long as it didn’t cost too much). Saturday is a veteran who is more likely to pick up McCarthy’s system in a short time period than a younger dude. He’s a good player and has demonstrated a solid ability to play center with a fast offensive mind at QB. As the article indicates this will buy us maybe a year or two before we need to find a longer term answer.
While I do like this move, I do find it odd that TT would do it. Saturday is 36 years old – and TT often steers clear of guys over 30. Center is a bit different position granted, but it still seems odd. This strikes me as a decision heavily influenced by McCarthy and Rodgers.
