The Falcons have officially named Jeremy Trueblood their new right tackle.
It's unclear if the move will stick after LT Sam Baker (knee) returns from injury. Trueblood replaced struggling RT Lamar Holmes in the starting lineup for Sunday's loss to the Patriots, but Holmes was later thrust into the game on the blindside when Baker departed. Baker is not expected to play in Week 5, leaving Holmes for left-tackle duties. The Falcons' offensive line is shaping up as an abject disaster. Trueblood is not a good player.

Date:

The Falcons will start Jeremy Trueblood at right tackle in Week 3.

Atlanta is reeling up front. Trueblood was cut by the Redskins before final cuts, and signed by the Falcons on September 3. Lamar Holmes -- who's gotten rocked at right tackle -- will attempt to protect Matt Ryan's blindside due to Sam Baker's foot and ankle injuries. Trueblood has been wholly ineffective in his eight-year career. He'll be on Cameron Wake's side on Sunday.

Falcons signed OT Jeremy Trueblood, formerly of the Redskins.

OT Terren Jones was waived in a corresponding roster move. The Falcons badly need tackle help with Lamar Holmes penciled in as the Week 1 right tackle, but Trueblood is coming off a lost year for the Bucs. He's made 84 career starts, however, and could easily make it 85 if Holmes struggles out of the gate. The Falcons' offensive line is a massive concern for a team that came within a whisker of the Super Bowl last season.

Redskins released or waived OT Jeremy Trueblood, CB Ryan Mouton and LB Roddrick Muckelroy.

The Redskins took a flier on Trueblood after he fell out of favor in Tampa, but couldn't make him their latest successful reclamation project. Mouton was fighting for a reserve cornerback role, while Muckelroy was angling for a special teams job. Mouton might have the best chance of latching on elsewhere.

Redskins agreed to terms with RT Jeremy Trueblood.

The Redskins will be looking to turn garbage into gold on the offensive line once again as Tyler Polumbus moves on. Trueblood started 84 games over a seven-year career with the Bucs, but was benched repeatedly due to ineffectiveness. He's also a power blocker at 6'8/320 while the Redskins run a zone scheme. Expect Trueblood to battle Tony Pashos and Tom Compton for the starting gig.

The Redskins are scheduled to host free agent RT Jeremy Trueblood.

Washington needs a right tackle, but Trueblood would be a bit of an odd fit. The 30-year-old is a power blocker and the Redskins run a zone scheme. Perhaps Trueblood will be offered a minimum deal to compete to replace Tyler Polumbus. Skins GM Bruce Allen was in Tampa's front office when the Bucs drafted Trueblood.

Bucs placed OL Jeremy Trueblood (shoulder) and S Cody Grimm (hamstring) on season-ending injured reserve.

Trueblood suffered a shoulder injury in Week 12. He had been operating as a swing lineman after losing his starting job to Demar Dotson. Trueblood seems unlikely to return as a 2013 free agent. Grimm was primarily a special teamer before injuring his hamstring in Week 9.

The Bucs have installed former RT Jeremy Trueblood as their new starting right guard.

He's replacing Ted Larsen. Larsen stood 6-foot-2, 305. Trueblood goes 6-foot-8, 320. As long as Trueblood can stay low and fire out of his stance that way, he should be able to make this work. For comparison's sake, 6-foot-8, 300-pound Alex Boone of the 49ers has emerged as one of the NFL's best right guards.

Coach Greg Schiano hinted that RT Jeremy Trueblood could see some action at right guard after the bye.

Trueblood lost the starting right tackle job to Demar Dotson. He's not getting that gig back, but could replace struggling Ted Larsen inside. Larsen has been subbing for Davin Joseph (IR, knee). Any change will be welcome news for rookie RB Doug Martin, who has seen few running lanes on his way to 3.47 yards per carry.

The Bucs are no longer even activating former starting RT Jeremy Trueblood on game days.

Trueblood was benched for Demar Dotson and can only play right tackle. The Bucs need more "versatility" in their game-day backup offensive linemen. "It’s just when you’re not the starter, when you’re a backup and you dress seven offensive linemen, it’s (about) position flexibility at that point," coach Greg Schiano explained. Trueblood is "earning" $4 million this season.

Bucs RT Jeremy Trueblood (ankle) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Giants.

Demar Dotson will make his first regular-season start at right tackle. Also inactive for the Bucs: CB Anthony Gaitor, RB Michael Smith, CB E.J. Biggers, LB Najee Goode, OT Derek Hardman and DE George Johnson.

Bucs RT Jeremy Trueblood (ankle) is listed as questionable for Week 2.

The Bucs are already without RG Davin Joseph (knee, injured reserve) for the season. Trueblood and LG Carl Nicks (probable, toe) were limited participants in practice this week. If Trueblood is ruled out against the Giants, Demar Dotson will start at right tackle.

Bucs RT Jeremy Trueblood agreed to a $1 million pay cut at the start of camp.

Bucs GM Mark Dominik threatened Trueblood with his release if he didn't accept. Trueblood was smart to take the salary slash, because no other teams would have paid him the $4.25 million he's still due. Trueblood's salary ($4 million) is now guaranteed, and he'll also collect a $250,000 escalator. Now in a contract year, Trueblood struggled along with the rest of the Bucs in 2011.

Bucs RT Jeremy Trueblood left Sunday's game in the first quarter with a right knee injury.

Packers LB Desmond Bishop trapped Trueblood's ankle underneath his body, twisting it awkwardly. James Lee has come on as the replacement at right tackle.
Sun, Nov 20, 2011 01:37:00 PM

Bucs re-signed RT Jeremy Trueblood to a two-year, $10 million contract.

No one else must have wanted him, because James Lee is known to be the favorite to start at right tackle. The 59th pick in the 2006 draft, Trueblood began his career in promising form before collapsing over the past few seasons. He was supposed to be a Jon Runyan kind of power blocker coming out of Boston College.
