Flozell Adams' Future In Pittsburgh Far From Certain At This Point

According to reports coming out of Pittsburgh, Mike Tomlin and his staff are not yet sold on offensive tackle Flozell Adams as the right guy for the job at right tackle this upcoming season. This week, Coach Tomlin said that Flozell Adams would start on Saturday night against the New York Giants, but that he would replaced early so that fellow free agent acquisition Jonathan Scott would have an opportunity to work some with the ‘ones’.

Some believe that may suggest that Scott may be able to win the starting job over Adams if he performs well. Scott after all, is quite a bit younger and perhaps a better long-term solution for the roster than the aged former Cowboys tackle.

“Everybody with a helmet on is in the mix,” Tomlin said when asked if Scott, who started eight games last season for the Buffalo Bills, is battling Adams for that position. “We just want to see Jonathan Scott.”
