We still need a veteran interior lineman, really wanted to take a shot at G/C Stefen Wisniewski - he's with the Eagles on a one year contract - why couldn't we have thought of that?!?

Now, another G/C Interior Lineman option is Ryan Wendell formerly of the New England Patriots, but he's thirty, little banged up, and may give the Pats a home town discount; Pats players are like that, you know...

Now there is G/C Ryan Jensen, but was tendered by the Ravens as an exclusive-rights tender, so it might take a trade to secure his services; but with Baltimore having just lost G/C Kelechi Osemele to the Raiders, they may be reluctant to part with him for reasons of continuity...

Jahri Evans and his agent refused to take a pay cut for the second year in a row, though it was long overdue, is still unsigned and hasn't perhaps received an offer to make him sign; older vets like him usually wait to sign after OTAs and mini-camps...

Amini Silatolu, a Carolina Panthers veteran is available but he's been injury prone with two torn ACL's in three years; so there's more reliability question marks on him than The Riddler...

Wonder is we still have some diamonds in the rough in the NFL's Best Undrafted Rookie Free Agent Mine?!?
