which one? steussie is too old imo.
Dunno much about either one. Just know our line needs help and some additional seniority may not help. Additionally they would not need to sell their house and move :D

The lineman from TB should be on our radar as well.

You gotta be joking. I live in Tampa and my dad is a huge Bucs fan. Everyone hates Stuessie, he was a major dissapointment. He was maybe there worst linmen, and thats saying alot. No way do i want this guy anywhere near Miami.
Stuessie, Gardner, and Schulters are need areas that might of interest to the Phins IMO.
I must be drunk...what I was trying to say while typwriter babbling was that we need a LT,FS, and WR depth.

read all the way in at the bottom,... i dont know why the fins waited so long to cut D.Bowens.


We haven't cut D.Bowens yet. The article says "possibly cutting". I imagine they haven't made up their minds on cutting him, that's why he's still around, at the moment.
