I wonder if anyone will pick him up.


There is a bit of money ball at play here.

A vet looking for a second contract (and an injured
one at that) is far more expensive (and a bigger financial
risk) than drafting a rookie.


He tore his achilles

I suspect he's going to have to sign a deal when he can show he's back.

Typical recovery is 6 months, which should be at the end of this month.

He'll be hard pressed to get a deal in advance of that time frame.

Texans should kick the tires

The LB crew is getting up there in age and lost Simon to free agency. They have more of a glut on the inside, though, but he might be a better fit outside behind Watt or Clowney in the 3/4 anyways to help with the injury issues.


I was thinking that the Texans might let Cushing go..

but I guess not. Te'o could have been a good fit as his replacement.


Pats should. Worked with that other islander charger, Seau *

undersized and injured often...still my favorite ND player

of the last 20 years.

I'm unsure if his leadership strengths can be fully utilized in the NFL for a couple of reasons. First, he's injured a lot, and those guys really can't be leaders from the rehab room. Second, he's not the alpha of the locker room...other players are better.

That said, the Chiefs need a MLB and I'd love for him to join us.
