Flozell Adams looked "OK but not great" in recent Steelers workout

Free-agent tackle Flozell Adams, who has found new demand for his services after Steelers right tackle Willie Colon tore his Achilles (which, as several of you have pointed out, is much better news than if tackle Willie Achilles had torn his colon), still remains available.

Adams’ $4 million asking price has prevented him from getting a deal done.  The price tag becomes even harder to justify in light of Adams’ current abilities.  As Len Pasquarelli of ESPN.com points out, Adams looked “OK but not great” in his recent workout for the Steelers.

Maybe he would have looked better if he would have had a chance to trip someone during the session.

So with Flozell, a long-time Cowboy, apparently out of the picture for the Steelers (the Broncos reportedly remain interested), Pasquarelli points to free-agent arrival Jonathan Scott, who started eight games for the Bills in 2009 under new Pittsburgh offensive line coach Sean Kugler, as the possible in-house solution.  Pasquarelli also believes that it’s “not likely” that the Steelers will slide first-rounder Maurkice Pouncey all the way out to right tackle.

    Based on last yr, is he worth 4 mil/yr – probably not.
    The Steelers are thin now and another injury during the yr is almost inevitable.
    In a uncapped year, I think it’s worth the risk.

    When flozell managed to still cause three false starts in an individual workout the Steelers said thanks but no thanks.

    “Maybe he would have looked better if he would have had a chance to trip someone during the session.”
    Funny!

    Flozell is a slug. The reason they call them the “terrible” towels is because stooler fans wipe their a$$es with them, never wash them, and twirl them over their heads to dry them out.

    He was outstanding in the leg whipping exercises, but poor in every other area.

    Maybe that’s an excuse that Chris Simms can use – blame the Raiders

    Not having seen much of the Cowboys over the years (due to a lack of interest), I don’t know what Adams history is regarding pre-snap penalties. But he can’t be any worse that Willie “False Start” Colon…
    Incidently, with Colon now apparently shelved for the season, Big Ben has gained a playmate while he’s off vacationing the first month of the regular season.

    I hate the Steelers, and this is honest to god the worst post I have ever read.

    Flozell. Hmmm. I can never remember if that’s the name of the medication for asthma or if that’s the one that lets you pee better.

  14. Burning River says: Jul 3, 2010 11:35 PM

    Well…hell.
    If he’s not “great,” how can he possibly even THINK about becoming a Steeler?
    I mean…just look at the quality of their roster! Multi-talented, super-skilled boy scouts, one and all…
    Seriously, though…If he’s breathing, he’s an improvement.

  15. Klytus says: Jul 3, 2010 11:36 PM

    The Steelers already have a right tackle on the roster although he played guard to sub for Chris Kemoeatu while he was hurt. It wouldn’t be the first time a tackle started out at guard. The player’s name is Ramon Foster and he played right tackle for Tennessee.
    GO STEELERS!

    Well, if Denver is interested, that bodes well for the rest of the AFC West, especially if Oakland isn’t sniffing around that old turd.

    Good Flozell workout = 5 holdings and maybe he actually doesn’t blatenly trip a DE.

  18. Jungle Juice says: Jul 4, 2010 12:22 AM

    Maybe they can sign Cheapo Von LoChoppen again and switch him to O-Tackle. He can dive at the knees of all of the rushers. All he has to do is act like it’s an accident and the refs will just look the other way.

    With a name like Flozell Adams, he should not only be retired, but rocking in a chair somewhere on a wooden porch, spitting tobacco juice onto the street.

    Len Pasquarelli…
    Not that i think Adams is some awesome tackle, but we’re supposed to take the scouting report of Len freaking Pasquarelli seriously?

    Why the hell would they even bother to work out Flozell? They’ve never signed a guy like him (aged former star, looking for a payday), and they never will, especially on the O-line. Must have been looking to get some publicity for something other than our drunk starting qb?
    Guaranteed – whoever fills that role will be a 7th round pick from a Division II school moving over from backup guard, or it will be a veteran minimum free agent signing of a cast-off from Detroit or Buffalo or Tampa Bay. That’s the Steeler’s way when it comes to plugging O-line holes, because the Rooney’s really are that cheap.
    Dumb-a$$es could have had Faneca twice now in the past three years, which would have anchored a guard spot and freed up guys to work at other positions on the line. But no – Faneca is not a ‘Tomlin guy”, he is a “Cowher guy”, and the “era of the Chin” MUST end (according to the Rooney Bible) – so Steeler fans are not allowed to enjoy the play of a guy who should have been a lifetime, Hall of Fame Steeler helping to anchor our line.
    Don’t get me wrong – 6 times in my 36+ years as a Steelers fan, everything has worked out pretty good. It’s the other 30 or-so years that have often sucked because of BS like this. A big flunk to the Rooney’s for failing to sign a HOF’er like Faneca TWICE over petty issues.
    The Rooney’s have always let success go to their heads, and they eventually take the fans for granted. Case in point – trading Franco to the Seahawks when he was 300 (or so) yards shy of passing Jim Brown on the all-time list. Cheat me as a Steeler fan once – shame on me. Do it multiple times, and try to shove career backups into the place of HOFer’s – shame on you.

    Why trash-talk a successful veteran lineman? Seems to me the Steelers are the ones with a problem. Or two.
    Flo is too good of a man to protect Big Ben the sociopath.

  23. David56 says: Jul 4, 2010 4:38 AM

    The guy is soooooo past his prime. The best Flozell could do for any team that might sign him is be a back-up to give the other guy a breather every-so-often. He looks like a guy on his way to some place like Oakland or Cincy, and it certainly won’t be for $4 million.
    GO GIANTS!!!

    Got a few jealous idiots in here. What do the Steelers have more of than any other team? Trophys, Wins, Championships, Pro Bowlers, Hall of Famers, & don’t forget Rings. You Suck.

  25. hankster says: Jul 4, 2010 7:29 AM

    Flomo looked ok cause they don’t call any fouls in practice. Chargers opted not to pick up this loser for a reason.

    Hi Pittsburgh Smells,
    Let me just say that there is a reason that “The Wire” was set in Baltiwhore. Your city is a disgrace to our great country. It is depressed and crime ridden, a resurgence is nowhere in site.
    Meanwhile, formerly depressed Pittsburgh is ranked most livable by Forbes, top 10 places to raise a family and in the top 5 of numerous other quality of life indexes. Your town continues to be nothing other than the bottom of the drain for the real east coast cities- the ones that really won us our independence. Jerk.
    BTW- Where do you think the steel came from for WWII? Get nostalgic today and throw on Alabama’s “America”. “Hello Pittsburgh”..no Baltiwhore in that song. What exactly is it that you do for this country? Annapolis does not count.
    Oh yes, Six..SIX Super Bowls to one…and you wear purple. Soft shells suck!
    HAPPY FOURTH OF JULY!

    No disrespect for Franco, but he sucked when the Seahawks signed him, and he didn’t last the season before they cut him. Although I am not a Steeler fan, Franco was great in his earlier years, but nothing left in the tank when the Hawks signed him.
