Gallery going left

In the midst of Thomas Howard questions, one of the reporters asked Art Shell whether Robert Gallery would be moving from right tackle to left in 2006. Shell was surprisingly candid: ?We have discussed moving Robert Gallery, and in our plans he?s probably going to move to the left tackle spot, yes,? the coach said.

In Raider-speak, especially this early in the year, that amounts to a done deal.

The question is where incumbent left tackle Barry Sims is headed. He could flip-flop to the right side, or he could slide over to left guard. Sims considers himself a left tackle, so it will be interesting to see how he takes the news.
