Well my opinion would be that he would be as good or better than any option we currently have at OT.

As far as ex-Buffalo Bills tackles go, he greatly surpasses Jonathan Scott. Although, if he plans to head to Philly, they may be willing to give him more money than we would, in order to replace their own ex-Buffalo Bills tackle Jason Peters, who blew out his Achilles today.

He's here in Philly now. Sounds confident he'll be an Eagle.

Regardless of how this plays out- it's interesting that the Steelers are obviously in the market for an OT.

Maybe the Mike Adams thing isn't so unrealistic afterall.....

I had rather hoped they were looking for a GOOD OT. We have enough mediocre OL especially at OG.

Well, if we had signed a Tackle in free agency that would have allowed us to focus on either Guard or Linebacker in the draft. NOW if Adams falls, and we don't sign someone, it might cause a little bit of a conundrum. We need a decent back up tackle for when Colon gets hurt. So signing one now would have allowed us to be more aggressive to possibly get Glenn.

Demetrius Bell and his agent are reportedly asking for too much money, it's doubtful he'll sign anywhere until he lowers his asking price.

no harm in bringing Bell in for a visit though and kicking the tires...

Not a surprise but Bell signed with the Eagles for 5 years
