James Hurst has played everywhere from right tackle, left tackle, both guard spots, and even tight end as an extra offensive lineman through his time with the Baltimore Ravens and New Orleans Saints. Hurst was respected as a left tackle when Terron Armstead went down for the Saints last year.
His addition as an extra tight end, in a Bradley Sowell-type role as well as the fact that he can maintain depth at four line positions makes him a player on the Bears’ radar. While his play with the Saints would connect him to Pace, he actually has a closer tie to Juan Castillo.
In 2014, Castillo moved from run game coordinator to offensive line coach of the Ravens. Later that offseason, the Ravens drafted James Hurst, and the two worked together for three years. Hurst got on the field as a rookie and was used as a versatile lineman for Castillo as well.
Hurst may not be a big signing, but the depth and versatility he would bring would really help. This would be a great addition and a strong bang for your buck.
