^^ I'm with you on this - BIG TIME

we now seem to not be hit or miss as much as we were a few years ago .. most all the guys that have been added have been a lot closer to "making it" here than we're used to seeing

the competition for roster spots can only help EVERYONE - and these guys know they will get a shot and a decent look at playing here from the coaches
SM - we are looking for football players who have “the personality, the competitiveness and the passion for the game and who understand it’s all about the team and that we’re going to take care of each other, no matter what"

We apparently traded Kyle Wilburn, another C and OL to the Titans. So, this was really a trade.


Is that true?? Surprising, especially considering Bruce Matthews is the o-line coach there!

Wilburn was a good prospect competing with Tevita, another UDFA, for a roster spot. Matthews has a year experience and a good family tree :lol: but I have not been impressed by the Titans OL play. I have not seen film of him and there is where scouts and coaches earn their salary.

We are not looking at starters but potential depth.


We cut Wilborn. I know nothing about either player. I'll trust Shanny & Bruce on this.
