WitP: Brashton, LaBoy, Manuwai, Forney

Brashton Satele is today's guest on the Tsai & Wai Warrior Beat Show, starting today at 11:30am HST.

Phil Barber of The Press Democrat profiles Travis LaBoy.
LaBoy also has some things to prove. He sat out the entire 2009 season after undergoing surgery to repair tendons in his left foot, and while on the Arizona Cardinals' injured reserve was hit with a four-game suspension by the NFL for a still-undisclosed violation.

He is cleared to play, and he says he's healthy, but now must jockey for position with returning veterans Parys Haralson, Manny Lawson and Ahmad Brooks on the outside.

At the very least, LaBoy likes Manusky's scheme.

“I think it fits me well,” he said. “We did a 3-4 at Arizona, but out here I think it's a lot more dynamic, a lot more sound. So I think it utilizes my abilities, not just as a pass rusher but as an athlete to make plays, and really just be a part of the scheme.”
And two former Warriors could be the starting guards for the Jaguars this season.
Uche Nwaneri, who started 13 games at right guard last season, has taken snaps at center throughout the three-day minicamp that concluded on Monday. Vince Manuwai, who started every game at left guard, worked at right guard to pair with tackle Eben Britton to give the Jaguars a power-run look on the right side.

Kynan Forney, a 10-year veteran who signed with the Jaguars last September, moves into Manuwai's spot at left guard in that lineup.
