Will the offensive line ever be solidified?
Since the beginning of training camp, the Browns have been constantly experimenting with their offensive line, trying multiple combinations. It seemed that the starting offensive line was going to be settled after Joel Bitonio was moved to left tackle and Austin Corbett became the starting left guard.

But after Corbett struggled in the preseason, the Browns are still trying to figure out what their starting offensive line will be as they start to prep for their Week 1 game against the Steelers.
Not only is it crazy that they moved Bitonio to tackle so late in the process, but it is even more crazy that they are still trying to figure out what their starting offensive line will be the week of their regular season opener.
If the Browns do decide to make changes on the offensive line, this week will be their first time playing together as a unit. One of the biggest keys to having a successful line is a having a cohesive unit. Any offensive line combination that the Browns decide to run out on the field will not have enough practice time to have great chemistry playing together.
And one of the worst aspects of this whole issue is that the left tackle position is the spot that is becoming a revolving door. Arguably the second most important position on the roster, trying out multiple players at the position and not having it settled by the time the regular season is a major concern.
Maybe the Browns will find the perfect combination before the Steelers game. But as long as this has gone on, it seems that they are going to experiment with the offensive line the entire season.
