Andy Reid was just playing with the possibilities when he talked about moving Todd Herremans to right tackle following the acquisition of guard Danny Watkins in the first round of the NFL draft last week.
That was what emerged from dogged questioning of Reid on Mike Missanelli's 97.5-FM radio show yesterday. Initially, when asked about moving the left guard, Reid said: "We do have some flexibility there," but when Missanelli pressed, wanting to know whether that indeed was the plan, Reid finally said, "That's probably not going to happen."
So Herremans, who joked on Twitter over the weekend that people were asking him what position he's going to play this season ("#swissarmylineman," he tweeted), can rest easy. Reid allowed that either incumbent Winston Justice or understudy King Dunlap probably will start at right tackle. Watkins has a good chance to start at right guard.
