Default Jeff Zgonina to visit

another fill-in guy: per rotoworld.com

Quote:
Free agent DT Jeff Zgonina will visit the Texans Wednesday.

He's one of many veteran linemen leaving the Dolphins this off-season. Two other Dolphins free agents made visits with the Jets Tuesday: FB Darian Barnes and DE David Bowens.

I actually remember him as being a pretty good player a couple of years ago. I hadn't realized he was this old, though.

15 years in the league, he's nearly 37 years old.

For his career he's got 23.5 sacks and 262 tackles.

No Thanks.

Not for the price you'd get Zgonina at.

You guys are crazy. This isn't Madden. Youth isn't everything. Let me explain it to you as best I can:

last 8 years:
Missed a TOTAL of 5 games.
Extremely consistent stats of at least 30 tackles with a few sacks

We have had crazy injuries on our DL. The one thing we need is consisentency, and this guy provides it. He knows what he's doing. He's a smart football player. He can play the whole season. This is the guy we need as a spot starter/backup DT. I say sign him quick before someone else picks him up

Jeez, grow up. Seth Payne missed 25 games over the last 4 years. Jeff has missed 5 in the last 8 years.

Seth's cap figure was going to be debilitating. Jeff would cost significantly less.

Seth was the best DT we had when he was playing.

So before
A) Insulting Seth
B) Insulting the FO for bringing this guy in
or
C) Insulting this new guy

Do some research!

OK stat master. I'm not insulting anyone either. I just think bringing this guy in for a year or two makes no sense. he's not an upgrade from any of the career backups we have at DT now.

Oh come on guys. If we sign this guy to a one year deal, maybe two at the most, what will it hurt? He is not going to come in here and demand 5 years at $20 million. He can be another small addition that pays big dividends in the end. Plus, he can teach these younger guys like Travis Johnson a thing or two.

His best two years stat-wise have from in two of the last three years (04 and 05). I would sign him to a one year deal. Would provide good depth and leadership.

Default Re: Jeff Zgonina to visit

My understanding of what the Texans are trying to do on the DL is play guys in waves and moe around Mario and Weaver. If they are signed Reed nor Zgonina will be asked to play more than 1/2 of the snaps regularly.
