DJ Fluker Struggling Out At Right Tackle

Kevin Acee went onto the airwaves this morning as a guest host on AM 1360 and had some insight on things happening at Chargers Park. One of the biggest things that stood out from his appearance were his comments on DJ Fluker.

Acee mentioned that Fluker is having his struggles and there is some people that believe that he would be a better guard. There was already some chatter like that before the draft and now it seems more and more like a possibility.

So now what?!

We keep evaluating and evaluating to see if he can be an NFL right tackle and if he cannot be that guy, then we might have to swallow our pride and make that move. Hopefully they figure it out sooner rather than later.

One of the articles in the morning dump mentioned this possibility already. Fluker would be moved to right guard, Max Starks would be the right tackle and King Dunlap would be the left tackle. Musical offensive linemen!

If Fluker moves to guard, it gives us one more reason to drop Clary onto the unemployment line. Unless we just move him back to right tackle…. but that would just be ridiculous.

Maybe that is why the Chargers have already talked to right tackles Winston Justice and Eric Winston in free agency? They could be options.

Fluker needs to erase all the talk of his struggles. We need the offensive line to step up this year and make things happen.
