At least one NFL personnel evaluator believes SLB Philip Wheeler could be a steal in free agency.
"He had a great year in Oakland," said the evaluator, who works for an NFC team. "He was playing like his hair was on fire. He was their best defensive player on the field most of the time." Wheeler noticeably stood out on a bad Oakland defense, along with Desmond Bryant and Lamarr Houston. Pretty much everyone else was terrible. Wheeler, 28, is not expected back with the Raiders.
