Free-agent tackle Flozell Adams, who has found new demand for his services after Steelers right tackle Willie Colon tore his Achilles (which, as several of you have pointed out, is much better news than if tackle Willie Achilles had torn his colon), still remains available.

Adams' $4 million asking price has prevented him from getting a deal done. The price tag becomes even harder to justify in light of Adams' current abilities. As Len Pasquarelli of ESPN.com points out, Adams looked "OK but not great" in his recent workout for the Steelers.

Maybe he would have looked better if he would have had a chance to trip someone during the session.

So with Flozell, a long-time Cowboy, apparently out of the picture for the Steelers (the Broncos reportedly remain interested), Pasquarelli points to free-agent arrival Jonathan Scott, who started eight games for the Bills in 2009 under new Pittsburgh offensive line coach Sean Kugler, as the possible in-house solution. Pasquarelli also believes that it's "not likely" that the Steelers will slide first-rounder Maurkice Pouncey all the way out to right tackle.

im not liking all this move Pouncey to tackel talk. if he can play it like a probowler then i say do it but i fear it will just end up being another one of our lineman playing out of position and not doing well

Yea if they want Pouncey to be a tough interior linemen they shouldn't shift him to tackle. We have enough problems at RG,C,LG and need him to help improve it immediately.

Does anyone know anything about Jonathan Scott? I'll be honest, I avoided watching the Bills for the most part, not the most exciting or interesting team, but I know they didn't have a terrible running game, passing game is a moot point since their QBs define mediocrity.

He is not going to play any position like a pro bowler as a rookie...

Adams not looking great was expected. If he were great or could look great, he wouldn't be on the street looking for work right now.
