Caldwell’s to-do list

Posted by Chris Brown on July 28, 2013 – 11:49 pm

One of Buffalo’s newest offensive linemen Antoine Caldwell is expected to be part of the competition for the vacant left guard spot. Of course Caldwell has a few other things to take care of before he’s competing effectively in Buffalo’s offensive scheme.

Caldwell took in practice last night having just joined the team and knows little about the scheme at this point. The four-year vet aims to change that sooner rather than later.

“I think it starts off the field more than on the field,” Caldwell told Buffalobills.com. “I’ve got to hammer the film room, hammer that time with the coaches. I think that’s important to really speed up this process that I’m in right now. Then come out here and try to translate things that I’ve learned in the meeting rooms out here on the field and that’s going to be important to getting in there and being able to battle.”

Caldwell has 19 starts in his NFL career, which is two more than Doug Legursky (17) and 18 more than Colin Brown (1). Legursky has appeared in more NFL games (50) than Caldwell (39). Still, most of Legursky’s starts have come at center, not guard.

Caldwell once he’s up to speed is going to add to the talent level at that left guard competition.
