    Re: Around The League: Minicamp News From Other Teams



    Justin Smith sitting out of minicamp thus far with injuries (Niners).

    Falcons won't be signing Jon Vilma after he works out for them. They also worked out Tim Dobbins.

    Geno Smith getting most of the 1st string reps in New York. They also waived troubled RB, Mike Goodson.

    EJ Manuel looking pretty good in Bills camp.

    Brandon Flowers meeting with San Diego.

    It is an open competition for LT in Carolina. Byron Bell seems to be the favorite (yikes!).

    Titans scoping out LB's Quinton Groves and Marvin Mitchell (Titans are moving to a 3-4 and both have experience in a 3-4).

    From Rotoworld via Miami Herald

    The Dolphins are using Dannell Ellerbe at outside linebacker during OTAs.
    Ellerbe and Philip Wheeler are on the outside, with Koa Misi at Mike. In nickel packages, Wheeler and Misi stay on the field while Ellerbe departs. The Fins are essentially admitting ex-GM Jeff Ireland's $34.75 million mistake on Ellerbe, changing his position and demoting him out of sub-packages. Unfortunately, they can't save salary cap room by cutting Ellerbe until next offseason. May 28 - 8:58 PM

    Tsk, Tsk Is Ellerbe going to go the way of AD? Some impact in his first year then a steady decline leading to being released? I liked Ell and really wanted him to succeed in MIA.

    No to SD or MIA. If I'm Johnson I want to play for a team that I know is contending for the Super Bowl. SD and MIA don't fit that profile.

    Add Ellerbe to the list of post-Ravens busts. But Flacco's contract is killing the Ravens right?

    Perhaps the Browns can trade for him, and have Ellerbe and Kruger as bookends... Bc

    I said Flacco's contract is going to look like a bargin in a few years...

    I don't think he's a good fit in that scheme at all. Ellerbe lacks the instincts and sideline to sideline speed to be a good 4-3 MIKE. He was much better as a 3-4 WILL who could focus on playing north south and covering his gap assignment, basically the old Bart Scott role.

    I actually have no idea why the Dolphins are running a 4-3 instead of a 3-4. Most of their personnel would be a better fit in the 3-4. Dion Jordan and Cameron Wake would be great OLBs, Misi and Ellerbe could play ILB with Wheeler as the super-sub. Jared Odrick and Randy Starks are the 5-tech DEs, but I guess they don't really have a good NT option anymore with Soliai gone. Anthony Johnson had some experience playing the nose in 3-man looks at LSU and could possibly be kind of a Jay Ratliff type of player there.

    Re: Around The League: Minicamp News From Other Teams

    From Tenn it looks like our guy Oher is looking over his shoulder already. A lot of fans were pissed at them taking Taylor Lewan while everyone here wanted him or Zack Martin but Tenn took the safe pick and for the future. He could move either Oher or their LT out this year.


    _____________________________________
    Taylor Lewan's Legal Battle

    The Titans threw many people a curveball by drafting Taylor Lewan at 11th overall and bypassing a few other pressing needs.

    There's no questioning Lewan's value as an offensive tackle at the next level. He plays with the physicality and mean streak that makes for a great offensive lineman.

    However, you can't help but be a little troubled by Lewan's current legal battle that involves an alleged assault on two Ohio State fans.

    In the end, this probably gets washed away. This isn't something that should raise any serious red flags. Adding another offensive tackle is fair criticism, but judgement should be reserved on Lewan's legal battle.

    With that said, it needs to be resolved before training camp begins. Lewan has the potential to leapfrog an aging Michael Roos (31) or Michael Oher for a starting role.

    Michael Oher, highest drafted swing tackle in the history of the NFL.

    Re: Around The League: Minicamp News From Other Teams

    Jonathan Franklin, 2nd year RB for Green Bay, will be cut from the team tomorrow. According to the Packers, his neck injury is pretty serious and possibly career ending.

    He was a 4th round pick last year.

    Hardly. Tony Mandrich the #2 pick in the draft was a swing tackle mid way in his career. Lots of guys don't live up to the hype.

    Re: Around The League: Minicamp News From Other Teams

    LOL - Oz just didn't want to admit failure with Oher a #1 pick and stuck with him til the end when it was obvious to even him he had to go. Some fans still make excuses for Oher. Oz also said the purge was about production or lack thereof. Tenn was pleased enough to re-sign Pollard while our d suffered last year. I defended Oz on Pollard and Boldin but sometimes even the greatest are wrong.

    ________________________________

    The re-signings illustrate how pleased the Titans were with the production from: Pollard, who led the team with 142 tackles in 16 starts; Pitoitua, who had career highs of 91 tackles and four sacks in 13 starts; and Johnson, who had 35 tackles and a career-best three sacks in starting six of the 16 games he played.
