Bills Training Camp: Chan Gailey Sees Lack Of Depth At OT

The Buffalo Bills' free agent courtship of Atlanta Falcons right tackle Tyson Clabo proved many things about the team, not the least of which is that they're not overly confident about their current offensive tackle depth chart (despite the Disney-level optimism GM Buddy Nix has expressed in the group).

Bills head coach Chan Gailey all but confirmed that theory on Monday, when he told reporters that he was concerned with the team's depth at tackle.

"We don't have a lot of depth right now," Gailey told reporters. "Ed (Wang) has played none and Cordaro (Howard) played very little last year. So we really don't have any depth at that position. We have to develop it, and that’s what training camp is about to develop that. We'd love to have had some more time to do it, but you take what you've got."

Wang and Howard have been taking reps at left tackle in place of the dinged-up Demetrius Bell, while rookie Chris Hairston - a fourth-round pick out of Clemson in April - has struggled on both the left and right side. Bell and Erik Pears seem entrenched as starters; time will tell how much doom that spells for the team's outlook this season.
