Left guard Joel Bitonio, a Pro Bowl alternate in 2017, took some snaps at left tackle during the offseason program, and the door vaguely seems to be open on more of the same.

Shon Coleman is expected to open training camp at the top option at left tackle. Where it goes from there remains to be seen, but if they could find a left guard who plays well enough in place of Bitonio, the best move for the short- and long-term could be to slide Bitonio to the outside.

Trubisky has made a personal decision to focus on his own business instead.

It’s football season as far as I’m concerned, Trubisky said. I’m ready to go. I’ll continue to watch LeBron and see what he does. But it’s football season now.

Eight years ago, Trubisky likely had a harder time dealing with the first LeBron departure. But Trubisky now realizes how the business of professional sports works.

I was a LeBron fan, wanted him to stay in Cleveland for the hometown team, but he made a decision for his family, Trubisky said. You’ve got to respect that. It’s a lot different now that I am a pro athlete. You understand there’s a lot of things that go on behind the scenes and things you’ve got to think about — your family, yourself and what’s best for your future moving forward. So I’ve gained a new perspective on what other athletes in other sports — and in Hunter Pence Authentic Jersey our sport as well — have to think about and consider when deciding on their careers.

It’s still better than 75 percent of the guys in the big leagues right now, said Mariners starter Wade LeBlanc. It’s just not what Felix has had before. I think everybody looks at it and says, ‘Felix has lost it.’ But at the same time, he’s building up other aspects of his game now.

People need to understand Authentic Matt Prater Jersey it’s not an easy thing to do in the offseason, much less midseason, and that’s what he’s doing. The last couple of years, it’s been a grind for him to figure out where his stuff can succeed. But as he gets more comfortable with it, you see it getting crisper. He’s throwing with conviction. He’s throwing aggressively, and there’s confidence behind it. That’s making it play better.

When guys got in scoring position, he’d turn into a totally different pitcher. It was almost like he would get pissed off when somebody hit a double off him. I remember one at-bat, the 9-hole hitter hit a double off him, and I was hitting leadoff, and he took it out on me. It got nasty as hell.
