How I See It: AFC South Stock Watch
By Paul Kuharsky
Small offensive linemen in Indianapolis: The Colts have added guard Andy Alleman and tackle Adam Terry, two players who weren’t tendered as restricted free agents by their teams. The bulking up on the line is probably not complete, and that means shuffling and potential benching of guys who don’t run-block as well as the Colts would like. Things look particularly grim for Mike Pollak and Tony Ugoh, second-round picks who weren’t starting and now see newcomers with more size arriving.
Jason Babin, DE, Titans/Eagles: No, he’s never been consistently productive. But here he is with a one-year, $1 million offer sheet from the Titans, awaiting word on whether Philadelphia will match. If it doesn’t, he gets to work with one of the league’s better defensive line coaches, and Jim Washburn helped turn Kyle Vanden Bosch, Tony Brown and Dave Ball from reclamation projects into productive players. This is likely the last chance for the journeyman, and it’s got to feel good to be wanted.
