Former NFL offensive lineman and SiriusXM host Ross Tucker talks with The Post’s Justin Terranova about Nick Foles regret, Josh Rosen potential and Le’Veon Bell questions.
Q: Will we look back and wonder if the Giants should’ve considered Nick Foles more?
A: That’s a tough one. Given his track record with [Pat] Shurmur and his age, I really think that it could have been an option. If they get Foles on a two- or three-year deal, then you can go ahead and use that No. 6 pick on someone else. Whereas now I think they’ll use that pick on a quarterback, but they desperately need a pass rusher.
Q: Would you be surprised if the Cardinals gave up on Rosen?
A: Ultimately, you have to take Kyler Murray if you think he’s the guy. But that’s a tremendous opportunity for some other team, maybe like the Giants, to get Rosen. If the Giants could give up a second-round pick for Rosen, then they can use that sixth pick for help in the front seven. I would jump all over Rosen if I was the Redskins, Dolphins or the Giants.
Q: Where do you think the contract will land for Bell?
A: It’s really hard to gauge his value. I am really curious to see where his numbers come in. Look at the good teams out there. Do you think any of them would pay him the kind of money he is looking for? I highly doubt it. It’s more likely to be a team that wants some buzz around their franchise and a team with a young quarterback, believing Bell could be the foundation of that offense.
Q: What kind of impact would Bell have on that team, which sounds a lot like the Jets?
A: Significant. You need to put aside everything that happened with the contract and him not playing. The guy is a terrific football player. Not only is he good in the run game, but he’s as dangerous a pass-catching running back as there is. My big question when it comes to Le’Veon is his running style. He’s so patient in the backfield, and I wonder if that would work as well with teams without as good of an offensive line as the Steelers.
Q: How significant is the drop-off from Bell to Tevin Coleman?
A: Because the Falcons had Devonta Freeman, Coleman never really had to show that he could be the lead guy. He is more about flashes of brilliance to this point. He has speed to burn and is good out of the backfield. He’s going to get a lot of money, though. He’s hitting free agency at the right time. He still has a lot of tread on the tires and he showed flashes every time he got an opportunity.
