    Exclamation Two More FA Visits

    The first is OG Jake Scott:

    Scott graded out as one of the top pass-blocking guards by Pro Football Focus, and has started 124 consecutive games in four years with the Titans. He would provide an immediate upgrade over 2011 starters Vernon Carey and Richie Incognito in Miami. His only other known visit this offseason was with the Cardinals.

    The second is LB Philip Wheeler:

    A third-round pick in the 2008 draft, Wheeler is an effective strong-side linebacker and has flown under the radar a bit this spring. He could push hard for a starting job in Miami.
    - La Crapola

    *FreeStyle posted about Wheeler earlier in another thread, but I figured everyone would want to see it. Personally I like both of these potential signings a lot if they happen. Wheeler especially has shown consistent improvement and could be a real steal.

    Wheeler's a WILL here IMO. I like Scott quite a bit though.

    What would signing Wheeler mean for Koa Misi?

    Wheeler and Scott would be two very solid signings. I'm honestly surprised Scott isn't getting more play in FA.

    Scott would be a gigantic upgrade at an area of weakness.

    I agree with everything about Scott. He hasn't missed a game since 04.

    The lack of interest makes no sense. I'm assuming he's going to be expensive though since his last deal was 4 years for almost 20 in 08.

    He's a 31 yr old RG, it's certainly possible he won't be that expensive.

    31 but with about as clean of an injury record as one could have. I can't see him taking less than his last deal.

    Hopefully it's loaded in a way that doesn't hit us too hard this year.

    It would be great to sign both these guys, hopefully that extra cash we saved makes it happen.

    Pony up and pay for quality on the O line. Give Scott a deal and move forward. I am so tired of seeing our QBs eat more dirt than earthworms.

    As far as Wheeler, he was a good prospect leaving out of Ga Tech. He was a big part of our D and definately applied pressue and demanded double teams. He was a bit small for a pro LB but I imagine he could add a little weight. I imagine in the right environment he could develop nicely. Here's his bio from us....

    Scott would help solidify this line with only RT being a question. However if they draft someone in say the 4th round I'm sure they can get someone to play it alright between that pick/Garner and Murtha. Athletic lighter guard to. I think Scott only plays in the 290 range.

    If they dont upgrade the line it is going to be a painful year.

    It can´t get worse than Carey and Columbo last year. Both are gone so there has to be an upgrade.

    The only bad thing is that so many younger fans when people bring up Jake Scott of the Miami Dolphins are gonna think of the RT and not the stone cold baddest mutha ****er that ever played the game.

    Would be nice to see both these boys signed. The upgrade to the line particularly excites me.

    Sign them both, nice to see Ireland finally making some decent moves in FA. I was feeling really left behind so far in FA, and not just because of Peyton or Flynn.

    I'm not here to say Ireland is great or sucks but I will say too many fans get sucked into the need to sign big FA's out of the box. I'm going with the belief that had Philbin wanted Flynn he would have been signed. Receiver still has to be addressed though. Maybe Philben feels they can address those needs in the draft, be above average this year and they put a press on next year through bigger FA signings and stability at the QB position. Of course I may be 100% wrong and we are all F'd.

    I'm certainly no expert on the WCO, but my assumption would be that the increase in 3-step drops will, by itself, help the offensive line tremendously. Moore, or whoever else it is, won't be standing back there for very long most snaps. But I agree this would be a good signing.
