Here's Big Nate as Calvin jumped on with him and Coop today... Nate talks Doug Free vs Flozell Adams That's great stuff from former NFL Offensive Lineman who knows the game. Flo's age had turned him into a different player and his knee injury didn't help him either. But he was still a very good player on occasion because of his strength and size. Doug Free isn't Flozell Adams. In a way this is a good thing and a bad thing. He's not going to be overmatched by smaller quicker guys because he can use his athleticism, but he may have problems with bigger stronger guys like a Jared Allen because he's not the biggest strongest Left Tackle in the league. We are going to have to wait and see how Free puts his skill set to use this season. Alex Barron. I am skeptical about him challenging either Free or Colombo for a starting job. I think he's more of a backup plan if anything.
