Guy Whimper PIT 7 Months
Steelers signed OT Guy Whimper, formerly of the Jaguars.
They added UDFA LB Terence Garvin, as well. Whimper, 30, shouldn't be in the league anymore. Pro Football Focus charged Whimper with a league-high 14 sacks allowed in 2011, and he graded out 74th-of-80 qualifying offensive tackles last season in Jacksonville. He'll compete for a roster spot in camp.

Jaguars released OT Guy Whimper.
The Jags have also parted ways with QB John Parker Wilson and CB Brandon King. Re-signed to a two-year, $5 million contract last March, Whimper appeared in all 16 games last season, but started only six. He graded out near the bottom of Pro Football Focus' tackle ratings. Whimper is going to have trouble finding guaranteed money on the open market.

Jaguars re-signed OT Guy Whimper.
Whimper became a starter for the first time in his six-year career last season, taking over at right tackle for injured Eben Britton. Starting 15 games, Whimper was destroyed by opposing pass rushers. Pro Football Focus credited Whimper with a league-high 14 sacks allowed, which is really something when you consider he was "blocking" left defensive ends. Blaine Gabbert should say some offseason prayers that Britton gets 100 percent by Week 1.

Jaguars RT Guy Whimper was forced from Thursday's game against the Falcons in the third quarter with a knee sprain.
Rookie Cameron Bradfield has come on to replace him. Blaine Gabbert has more lost fumbles (2) than first downs (1) or net passing yards (1) in a 34-0 blowout. The change in tackles isn't going to make much of a difference.
