Mailbag – Free Agent Addition

Keeping sending us your comments and questions!

Over the past few days I have received several emails asking about various NFL free agents still on the market. So I thought it would be a great time to open up the ‘ol mailbag and answer some of these questions.

Question – Its going take Dion Jordon time to mature. Dwight Freeney is still out there so why not sign until he (Dion) is ready? Brett – Boca Rotan

Answer – Dion will play this year. So will guys like Derrick Shelby and Olivier Vernon. They need plays and practice to develop. The more snaps they get, the more they can develop. A guy like Freeney takes snaps away from those players. So no thanks.

Question – Are the Dolphins going to settle on a tackle already? Fred – Connecticut

Answer – I sure hope so. Out of Winston, Clabo, McKinney, and Justice, I like Winston the most. He is the youngest and best fits Philbin’s zone blocking scheme. No injury problems. Clabo is a very close second.

Question – Hey what about signing Tim Tebow to play TE? Zach – Jacksonville

Answer – Damn….I was hoping to escape this question. There is no doubt that Tebow would help selltickets. And I think the “hoopla” surrounding him is slowly dwindling. But until Timmy realizes what everyone else already realizes (that you won’t play QB in the NFL) I don’t think any NFL team will bite, including Miami.

Question – Do any of the players (undrafted free agents) that Miami signed have a realistic shot of making the 53 man roster? Mike – Florida

Answer – Well Mike, I turned to the site’s draft Guru, Brian Cantanzaro for his opinion on this.

LB Alonzo Highsmith was Arkansas leading tackler before being sidelined last October with a foot injury. He almost certainly would of been drafted because he is versatile with NFL measurables – 6’2, 235 lbs who could run in the 4.7 range before his injury.

I could see him beating out Jonathan Freeny or Jason Trusnik in training camp for the 6th and final LB spot.

Thanks Brian.
