OG & OT, Sooner, rather than later

Maybe I'm being impatient, but shouldn't the 'Boys be moving faster on bringing in a few veteran OL to challenge for positions in camp... so we aren't playing Frederick where we NEED to play him, rather than playing him at his best position? If Costa was the guy at C, that'd be one thing, but it looks like an "if/then" situation is setting up with him... when he could go down in week one (again) with an injury. Should we be setting ourselves up for an "if he's healthy, then we're even better" situation, when it clearly didn't work a year ago? Why not go get Clabo or Winston right now, instead of allowing them to be courted by Miami? (I want them to cut Free loose and use that money to bring in potential starters at Guard and Right Tackle). Let's go to camp with some proven talent and some guys that will bring the competition up to where it needs to be. Why go with the "best" of the "worst"? That puts us one injury away from having to count on a guy who is on his couch at home. See: LAST YEAR. Now, it's certainly possible that the guys we need are already on the roster, and that's why the 'Boys' brass is moving so slowly on this. Is Leary ready? Is Parnell? Is Costa? Is Kowalski? Is there enough depth that if those guys get hurt, then we're still okay? This team has too much talent elsewhere to allow the offensive line to be the reason for failure. Why not deal with this sooner, rather than later!
