Good move, although a little steeper than I thought we'd pay him. He was the best available in free agency.

Why didn't the Bills resign him?

They drafted Cody Ford.

Career stats comparable to Ju'Waan James. Heck of a lot cheaper than James. Solid signing.

I am good with the signing. I'd like to see us surround Rosen with solid talent to see what he can do. If we can't get help on defense and they suck so be it. At least we'll know whether or not to go QB or defense with the draft next year.

Agreed. You won't be able to truly evaluate Rosen if you make the same mistake you made with Tanny from 2013-2015

Looking at his starting history, injuries don’t look like an issue with him.

Big plus there.

This is a move to protect Rosen. He is weak in the run game, but very strong protecting the pass. Definitely a good $3 million spent in my opinion.

I wouldn't say he is very strong in pass block. Jawuan James was a mediocre pass blocker and graded higher.

I may have gotten a little carried away there in my comments.

:haha


Mills expressing some excitement in being with the Dolphins in this week's OTAs. It looks like Coach Flores has found one of his 90 leaders on this team.

Armando Salguero wrote:
Finally, I appreciate the enthusiasm recent right tackle signee Jordan Mills brings. The Dolphins are a rebuilding team. But it doesn’t sound like Mills has gotten that memo.

“It’s a great team, great young team [and a] new coaching staff,” Mills said. “(We’re) coming out here to build a championship, playoff caliber type team and get an opportunity to play for this great organization with a great history. It’s a true blessing and I’m glad to be here.”

Like it.

It looks like my fears were unfounded. Miami is getting very serious about fixing the line. It appears Miami is getting as good as talent as they have available. If the coaching proves well, we might see a a solid team coming together.

Ju'Wuan James vs Jordan Mills.

Barry Jackson wrote:
If you polled NFL evaluators, it’s safe to assume that most or all would take Ja’Wuan James (who signed a four-year, $52 million with Denver) over Jordan Mills, who signed a one-year, $3 million deal to replace James at right tackle for the Dolphins this season.

But if both players’ stats for 2018 can be used as a gauge, then the move from James to Mills won’t be a step down in pass protection.

James allowed seven games on 491 pass blocking opportunities last season, according to Pro Football Focus. Conversely, Mills relinquished five on 606 pass blocking snaps. Advantage Mills.

Mills allowed more pressures (35) than James (26). But James allowed more pressures-per-pass blocking snap than Mills. Again, advantage Mills.

Where James had the big edge over Mills last season was in run blocking. PFF ranked James the 14th best run blocker among 85 qualifying tackles with a 69.1 grade. Mills was 77th at 47.7. Dolphins starting left tackle Laremy Tunsil, incidentally, was 37th at 62.3.

Mills actually was considered a better run blocker than pass blocker during his first two NFL seasons with Chicago, according to PFF. But that changed during his four years as a starter in Buffalo.

Makes me wonder if Mills was in a different run blocking scheme in Chicago than in Buffalo.

Buffalo Bills OL coach explains blocking schemes, what could fix offensive line
Updated Oct 20, 2017; Posted Oct 20, 2017

The Buffalo Bills of the past two years were a powerhouse rushing team that ranked in the top of the league.
This season, they enter their Week 7 game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in search of answers on the offensive line. …

A common refrain for the Bills' struggles is the new blocking scheme offensive coordinator Rick Dennison brought with him. But what exactly has changed for the Bills?
While the Bills spent the majority of the 2015 and 2016 season using a "power" or "gap" scheme, this season they tried to make zone schemes the base of the offense. What's the difference? Allow Bills offensive line coach Juan Castillo to explain:
"We're using all of those," Castillo explained. "It's not like we're just using one or the other." …
