Clements Believes Center Position is Key For Offensive Line's 2014 Success

Packers Offensive Coordinator Tom Clements believes the center position is the key for the line's 2014 success.

In an article published yesterday by the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel's Bob McGinn, Clements claimed that if "the center position comes along we'll have a very good line," seemingly announcing his trust for sophomore J.C. Tretter.

Currently, Tretter, the team's 4th Round Draft Pick last year, appears to be Green Bay's replacement for Evan Dietrich-Smith, who left earlier this offseason for the Buccaneers. 

Now since Dietrich-Smith's new contract was only worth $7.25 million, the Pack probably could've kept him if they wanted to, but since Tretter apparently impressed them they decided to go with him instead, something that could soon be regretted if the latter turns out to be a bust.

Tretter doesn't have to play great, but he can't be a disaster either. Last season, the OL was good even though Bakhtiari had some rookie struggles, and the line will be fine in 2014 even if Tretter struggles from time to time.
