    Legursky is well beyond his prime, causing some writers to question this move. However, he knows the players, the playbook, and Ben R., and more important, the coaches know him. He is seen as a backup center to Cody Wallace, but Legursky also can play guard. Given that combination, this insurance move makes sense.
