I think you'll see more of him when we figure out how best to use him.
I think Chargois’ lack of playing time was a combination of trying to get T Groves more involved in our offense and a 6’ 8” 275 giant of a man named Larry Owens.

Tanner was assigned to defend Owens because he was the closest player we had to him in size. Chargois had no chance against Owens, but I doubt if we see another player as big as him. He was an immovable space eater when he posted up inside. And, as you said, we were getting pushed around, with “Big Larry” doing most of the pushing.
