Will Charles Brown Win Starting Left Tackle Spot for New Orleans Saints?
The New Orleans Saints still do not know who will be the starting left tackle for the start of the 2013 season and there are a few players the team is considering. One player that was expected to get the first “crack” at left tackle is Charles Brown. However, Brown suffered an undisclosed injury during the Saints’ OTA’s.
Head coach Sean Payton said that he did not want to discuss injuries until fall, but did say that Brown suffered his injury in the weight room. Newly-acquired offensive tackle Jason Smith replaced Brown on the first team offense as he sat out of OTA’s. Brown might have a chance to win the starting left tackle position, but he must be able to stay healthy.
Earlier in the offseason, Payton said that he was not completely confident in Brown starting at left tackle given his injury history. If Brown is suffering an injury before training camp even starts, it does not bode well for his longevity heading into the regular season.
Despite the injury, Brown could still be the favorite to win the starting left tackle spot. However, he will have some competition from Smith as well as Marcel Jones and rookie Terron Armstead. The Saints do have a few options to fill their void at left tackle, but it still unclear which player will win the starting spot.
Ever since Jermon Bushrod left for the Chicago Bears, the Saints have been trying to find his replacement on the offensive line. Hopefully for the team, Brown can stay healthy enough and be the starting left tackle, if not one of the other players will need to step up.
