That's because he really doesn't fit their 3-4 scheme. He's better suited for a 4-3 3 tech. Ran a 4.7 40, with a 1.56 10 at the combine at 295. As for his stats, his 48 tackles last year were tops for nose tackles, so I don't know what's not impressive about that.
Bingo, and best of all, I think his being miscast in Houston means less competition in FA.
Per year??? No way. He's still recovering from his hip surgery and that may what's slowing the process down. Remember Marshall had his two years ago and said it slowed him down a bit and he didn't feel 100% all season long. Wootton can't ask for big money yet until he can pass a physical and maybe even do some running to see how it's affected his speed on the line. His best is to take a one year deal, prove himself again and then negotiate the longer term deal like Bennett did. He's still young enough to do that.
Maybe Mitchell to rotate with Paea at NT. With the Bears that's a wholly different position than it is in a 3-4 and it looks like their dragging their feet on Collins to see what kind of shape he's in after his rehab before the commit. If Mitchell has the ability to play both DT positions and his price is right he's just the kind of guy that Emery likes to shop for. Maybe he's this years version of Slauson.
I am figuring he will be out to get the same as Griffin from the Vikes. ( 5 yrs __ $42.5MM with $20MM guaranteed.) Wootton may not get quite that but I suspect it will be a starting pt and they will go up or down from there. Below comparisons have Wootton at DT you will notice.
Collins resigned to 1 year deal. Looking more and more like Melton's gone.
Bennett would be a big land and let us scratch off a need almost instantly. I still think that we need to spend that 14 pick on a 3 tech, but if this move was made, Clinton Dix would also be a good add as well. Can't wait for Tuesday.
