Must be a McNally guy, I've noticed he played a lot for the Giants...hmmm, well it never hurts to have veterans on the O-Line.

From ESPN.com:  

Whittle understand the mantra that the more you can do the longer you will be around. Whittle has learned to continue his career as a professional football player and plays multiple positions as well as contribute in a variety of ways on special teams. Whittle is able to play all five positions on the offensive line and is an intelligent player that uses angles to his advantage against defenders. He works hard to use great technique using hand placement and leverage to wall off opponents, but he lacks the power to move defenders and expand the hole. This lack of lower-leg strength is also evident when Whittle faces two-gap defensive linemen that are able to stalemate him at the point of attack and shed him to make plays. Whittle does a nice job in space engulfing linebackers at the second level when pulling. When asked to start at guard this season for Minnesota the Vikings actually fared better up front with Whittle in the game. In pass protection, Whittle does a very good job working his hips and feet together with average punch but good hand placement re-directing the pass rusher. Along with decent size Whittle brings versatility, football smarts and deceptive athleticism for an offensive lineman that will allow this veteran to continue to make a roster, get on the field and contribute

Were you smiling when they brought in Tutan Reyes?

Sounds like some decent depth at guard. Nothing major, but perhaps something we needed. His versatility is a plus as they say he's able to play all three line positions.

Looks to me like they just signed this year's version of Mike Gandy/Tutan Reyes/Bennie Anderson.

Highly doubtful he'll be starting

He's a cheaper/ healthier/ more athletic version of the recently departed Chris V. I suppose.

I'm not gonna complain about any attempt to bring in offensive linemen.  The more the better.

He's better than Tutan Reyes and Bennie and has a history with McNally.  He'd be great depth but don't rule him out as a starting guard.
