Listening to Clayton from last week (7th), and Gee Scott behind the lines, Gee was with "Fant, Glow, Britt, and some others at the gym (not allowed to use VMAC per CBA), doing "ab workouts." You heard that right, offensive linemen doing ab workouts.
I think we're going to see a huge improvement from this line in year 2, and it's because of Britt's leadership. Gee said "when Britt first got here, he was quiet, but now you can tell who's the leader just by the way the other players act around him, and who does the talking."
I found Gee's points to be very encouraging, and think that this line may start 2017 intact, and play fairly well. Fant is an athletic monster, all he needs are reps. And he's got Justin Britt leading him around, showing him how to go from "almost bust" to Pro Bowler.
Gee also said he doesn't hold out much hope for Gilliam being here next year. "He's not a dawg."
