Titans Sign OL Ty Sambrailo

Recommended Posts

We'll definitely draft a tackle this year, it's a near certainty. 

 

The issue is the new CBA requires 8 active OL on gameday, but there's also the provision that allows you to bring up 2 players from the PS to activate on game day, for an effective 55 man roster. 

 

Anyway, point being - we should keep Quessenberry on the PS and probably need to have 9 OL on the active roster. I'd like to see the 5 starters + rookie OT + rookie iOL + Sambrailo + Jamil Douglas.

After getting injured three games into his rookie season, Sambrailo had a terrible 2016 season. He played in just 10 games (starting four) but still finished sixth in the NFL in total sacks allowed with 7.0 (every player ahead of him on that list played in at least four more games than him). Sambrailo also graded out as having one of the 10 worst individual performances by Pro Football Focus four separate times that season (in weeks 3, 5, 10 and 12).


Looking at how bad Sambrailo was in 2016, the decision to trade a fifth-round pick for him wasn’t good from the start, and it felt like the Falcons would be in trouble if either Jake Matthews or Ryan Schraeder went down at any point in the season.

It didn’t take long for that to happen, as Schraeder suffered a concussion on the first drive of week two’s matchup against the Green Bay Packers on Sunday Night Football. Sambrailo was catapulted into every-down duty for the rest of the evening. He gave up three hurries, one QB hit and two sacks. Things didn’t get better from there, as he would finish the season with a very poor 46.4 grade from PFF.


Sambrailo ended up allowing 3.5 sacks for 32.5 yards while playing 209 snaps over the course of the season. For comparison’s sake, Ryan Schraeder allowed 4.0 sacks for 27 yards while playing 832 snaps in 2017 and Jake Matthews allowed 3.5 sacks for 18 yards while playing 1,024 snaps in 2017.

Austin Pasztor, the other swing tackle on the roster, also had a place on that aforementioned list of most sacks allowed by an offensive lineman in 2016: he finished fourth with 8.0 sacks allowed. For those doing the math at home, that’s one more sack allowed than Sambrailo but in six more games played, and 12 more games started. It’s not something to really brag about, but Pasztor at the very least didn’t cost the Falcons any draft capital.

Atlanta felt the adverse effects of the Sambrailo trade whenever he was on the field during the 2017 season!Ty Sambrailo has not been good in the NFL, the trade for him was a bad one from the day it was made

Doesn't surprise me. We run that play 2-3 times a year and Always works. Same with the blocking tightend sneaking out play. It is almost impossible how well they work. I can't remember once in the last 10 years we didn't get a td or first from either.

He's a big white dude with a beard and long hair. That means something, doesn't it?

That he probably unironically loves the Punisher?

I hope JRob nails this draft. Looks like we are depending on it by our FA participation (or lack of). I knew it was going to be a tight cap year but on paper it looks like we regressed.
