Fins management is far to stubborn to admit wheeler was/is a mistake.
Tackleing is something that's eluded this team for quite some time.like the current evaluator had anything to do with wheeler....its so annoying how so many people jump the gun after one series of the first preseason game of the year, there was nothing wrong except missed tackles,
they had live tackling for the 2nd time this camp (if you count the scrimmage)
I doubt that Wheeler or Ellerbe get cut because of the massive guaranteed amounts they are owed. However, that doesn't mean that we have to play them as starters. We only saw limited playing time from them and the game was being spoiled by over-officiating. Let's see them in other practice games and evaluate from there. If Jelani Jenkins is playing better, then I have no problem in starting him, although I think that Tripp may have the bigger upside (but my preference is not to rush him along before he's ready). He will do fine on Special Teams to begin with.Good question but I don't think so because of the money.
