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 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. A whipping boy among Jaguars fans, Whimper is going to have trouble finding guaranteed money on the open market.

Jaguars re-signed OT Guy Whimper to a two-year, $5 million contract.

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.

Jaguars signed OT Guy Whimper.

A swing-tackle with the Giants going back to 2006, Whimper may end up seeing time at right tackle later in the season with journeyman Jordan Black holding down the fort.

Giants re-signed restricted free agent OT Guy Whimper to a one-year, $1.176 million contract.

Whimper is a backup tackle that hasn't shown much potential. He'll fight fellow reserve Kevin Boothe for placement on the depth chart.

Giants placed an original pick tender on OT Guy Whimper.

Whimper was drafted in the fourth-round, so the Giants would receive a pick in that round if he's signed away. Whimper, purely a backup, will receive $1.176 million in 2010.

Giants placed T Guy Whimper (foot) on injured reserve, ending his season.

He broke his foot in New York's exhibition finale. Whimper is still a "project" after two years and seems unlikely to ever evolve into a starter.

Giants LT Guy Whimper is dealing with with a high ankle sprain.

Coach Tom Coughlin surprisingly said Whimper looked fine walking around after Thursday night's preseason game. He's David Diehl's backup currently.

Guy Whimper is not expected to be the Giants' left tackle this season.

Whimper is apparently a favorite of GM Jerry Reese but not close to being ready for such a task. David Diehl is likely to protect Eli Manning's blind side.

Guy Whimper and David Diehl have been splitting snaps at left tackle during OTAs.

If Whimper plays well enough, Diehl could stay at guard. Most Giants observers believed Diehl was the favorite, but Whimper looks to have the inside track. Eli Manning's season may depend on the winner of this battle playing well.

The Giants are expected to take a look at 2006 fourth-round pick Guy Whimper as they decide who'll take over for Luke Petitgout at left tackle.

He would need to take a big step after playing in eight games on special teams as a rookie. David Diehl currently appears the favorite for the job.

Giants agreed to terms with former East Carolina T Guy Whimper on an undisclosed contract.

One of the most oddly-named players in the 2006 draft, Whimper, a fourth-round pick, will likely begin camp fourth on the tackle depth chart with Lewis Kelly (knee) on the shelf.
