Default Scott to Titans

PFT:

TITANS SNAG SCOTT

After an all-too-quiet start to free agency, the Tennessee Titans have helped fill a hole on their offensive line by creating one for a division rival.

According to the Tennessean, the Titans have agreed to terms with starting Colts guard Jake Scott. The contract will average just under $5 million per year.

Scott, a fifth-round draft pick of the Colts in 2004, started 55 games in Indy over the past three seasons. He fills the vacancy created by Jacob Bell, who left for the Rams last week.

Never a bad thing to take a good player from a division rival :)

Was a pretty necessary signing. Wasn't expecting it as after the visit it seemed like the Titans were lowballing Scott and wouldn't budge. Not the best value deal the Titans have had this offseason but they could have done much worse in that regard - a young G who is at least a proven starter is welcome. Was a little concerned the Titans interior OL was going to be made up of players who haven't started more than 5 games between the lot of them.

With Olson possibly retiring the cost is more or less offset anyway - actually, wouldn't be surprised if it's a net cap saving for 08.

already in the FA thread man...

but anyway, like the sign by the titans. Get a above average guard for a good price not to mention they take there division rivals starting guard. Not to shabby props to the titans.

I completely forgot about Scott. Its a good signing, its a big need and with Scott being so young theirs little chance of his skills declining over the length of the contract, unlike alot of Free Agents. They still have a ton of free cap space avialable.

I like this signing a lot, and it'll help us to have more options with our draft come draft weekend.

yeah, i wouldnt put Scott as an elite lineman or anything, but under 5 mil a year for a good lineman and proven starter while taking him from an in-division rival is a great move and should be a great deal money-wise as well the way it's being thrown around.

Is Jake Scott that good? Five million per year seems a little expensive.

We'll see how good he is. Lineman who have left the Colts in the past typically become mediocre on other teams (look at DeMulling, he couldn't even stay in the league without Howard Mudd).

DeMulling played his two-year contract with the Lions, and was with the Redskins last year.

Adam Meadows was released after the 03 season, and retired due to injury in training camp with the Panthers who signed him long-term. He tried coming back with the Broncos in 06.

Steve McKinney has been a 6-year starter for the Houston Texans since signing with them in 2002 as a free agent.

Good pickup, for a good price also, the Titans are one of the smarter organizations unlike the lets pay over 50 mil for average or injury prone players Raiders.

I'm convinced Scott is just the latest Howard Mudd creation, he looks average in every single aspect of the game to me.... this won't hurt the Colts at all.... Mudd will have a guy in there at RG in week 1 who is just as good or better then Scott.

Its not a horrible signing by the Titans, defiantly one out of need and it should replace Bell fine. For what its worth I think the Titans have one of the best tackle tandems in the league in Roos and Stewart... i'm actaully surprised these guys don't get more acknowledgement.


On a side note, its kind of stunning the money being thrown around for these Guards... once thought as the easiest position to fill and not worth paying big money, these guys are finally getting paid some big money.

Well, it won't hurt the Colts because they already have players who could step in. So the move worked for them.

Scott is going to play right guard for the Titans, right? I can't see him at left guard, nevermind what rotoworld says because they doesn't know **** most of the time. Benji Olson is going to retire I read, which allows for Scott to step in at RG, and then have one of their guys in Amano or Harris step in at LG for the departing Bell.

It's only about $1M more a year than what Lilja got and about $500K more in total guarantees, but it's also on one less year which is less of a commitment.

Two ways to look at that - did the Colts resign Lilja believing he was the better of the two, or did they resign Lilja because he was percieved as the cheapest of the two (which didn't really turn out to be true)?

Im curious to see how he performs now. If he flops, you can add that to the list of evidence of how a great qb can make his oline look better than it really is.

Peyton and Brady do this better than anyone. Both in very different ways when you break it down.

Playing along side very good linemen also makes a player look better.

very true. i don't think that would be the case for Scott having a dropoff in production however because Tennessee has an excellent oline. One of the best in the league.

Could be the latter, who knows. Personally I like Lilja a lot more myself, some might say Scott. I'm pleased with how it all worked out, it was a good contract for Lilja and for the Colts, locking up the left side of Ugoh and Lilja for many years.

Exactly. Their offensive line will be straight as long as they hang onto those two bookend tackles. Roos and Stewart (especially Stewart) are freakin' beasts.

don't forget Mawaeh. if his body can hold up another year, they have top tier talent in the 3 pressure points of the oline. When I was grading olines last year, i felt that Tennessee had either the 3rd or 4th best line in the league. I can't remember exactly where i graded them.

I know I had NE followed by Dallas. I think I had Tennessee 3 on the list.
