    Under the radar OLine FA

    I just read about this guy named Evan Mathis from the Eagles.

    According to Pro Football Focus he was the best OL player in the league this year, being the only player not to have a single game in which he graded negatively.

    He hadn't started a game since 2009 and was brought to the Eagles on a one-year contract, and expected to be a backup.


    I still don't really know anything about the guy, but he could be a great under the radar, Steelers type signing.

    He's a decent signing in Madden if you are short quality interior OL guys..


    Don't know how this translates to the NFL though.

    A Steelers type of signing would be a guy like Jeremy Zuttah or Chilo Rachal if they were looking to free agency. If they end up releasing Kemo they may look to FA but I think they may address their own and draft another OG.

    I remember Mathis playing for the Bengals for a few years...


    The Rams' offense featuring weapons such as Marshall Faulk, Torrey Holt, and Isaac Bruce were known as "The Greatest Show on Turf"

    The Steelers' offense featuring weapons such as Le'Veon Bell and Martavis Bryant should be known as "The Greatest Show on Grass"

    This has nothing at all to do with respective playing surfaces at the Edward Jones Dome vs. Heinz Field.

    Zuttah is a guy I had mentioned before. I remember the Steelers having interest in him around draft time, and from what I recall, he had pretty good mobility, which is something the Steelers like in their guards.

    If it could work cap wise, I could see the Steelers adding on OG through the draft and one through FA.

    I'd love to get Zuttah but he won't be a cheap signing. Get Zuttah and send Foster to the back up role where he belongs. Then draft Cordy Glenn and we will have an OL to talk about.

    I'm not so sure he would all that expensive and that's why I said he was a Steelers type of signing. The Bucs allowed him to play out his final year while he bounced in & out of the starting line-up. I would rather try and "hit it" in the draft then bring in a lower level FA.

    How do you feel about Kasey Studdard. Before he got hurt, he was scheduled to be the starting guard for the Texans. Also, Brisiel from the Texans is a free agent. John Mclain with the Houston Chronicle is predicting he can be signed for a very reasonable price.
