    How have we not signed this guy??? he is a top five safety in the league. He basically led the Panthers in tackles and is outstanding in coverage. Please don’t go down the Anthem rabbit hole, i already know all of that. The fact is that we have a great defense with a glaring hole ...Edmunds. Imagine having Fitz and Reid as you safeties. Again, i know all about the other stuff, i’m talking about the :60 min between the lines.

    Lol. You can’t be serious? This Has to be a troll post right?
    If we were looking to hire a social justice warrior or an activist yeah maybe. We need guys who’s number one priority is playing football.

    Eric Reid is not even close to the athlete that Terrell is. Never mind that, he is even worse than Edmunds in coverage.

    Reid has become a terrible football player. He was solid for a couple of seasons, but his play has dropped off a cliff.

    As Tomlin stated we went man to stop the run and we didn't really protect our DB'S .. The only DB we have that can be left alone is Haden and he will get beat as well from time to time ...

    I would have like to see UGIII get a chance to play but our fearless leader only dressed 47 players instead of the 48 allowed so the opportunity was wasted. Several days before the game, he said he was going to take advantage of being able to dress 48. No one on the entire staff caught they turned too many players on the inactive list. Really?

    Is "professional victim" a rosterable position we are in need of? If not, pass.

    dude, he had 97 solo tackles last year! have you watched him or are you basing your decision on BS political stuff? maybe we should restrict our draft picks to Brigham Young players.

    I'm not sure what Edmunds did in the last game that was so offensive; maybe it was leading the team in tackles that pisses everyone off so much.

    Rudolph is on the bench, so Edmunds is the new whipping post for some Steelers fans to take their frustrations out on. Scapegoat.

    because of political garbage. the man had 97 solo tackles, 130 combos and 11 assists last year. he is a run stopper which is what we need. you can argue the MAGA militia crap all you want but you can’t argue actual stats.

    "Dude," if he's such a great player, why did the Panthers release him after 1 year of a 3 year contract? Why hasn't anyone else brought him in? He looked like crap last year. He had a lot of tackles, but allowed 45 completions on 57 targets. That's Top 5 safety play?

    It has nothing to do with politics. It's about fielding a good player. I liked him a few years ago, and even wanted to give him a shot despite the politics, but he has not been good in a few years.

    Just like no one has signed AB or Kaperdick...How you are in the lockeroom, your character, and how how treat your teammates MATTER!

    Just how talent matters, This matters also... It's a real thing, Quite simple!

    you are correct, he is a nice guy and athletic, but he isn’t decisive and is always late.

    AB was an amazing receiver who posted record numbers and Kapernick took his team to a super bowl. get it? this isn’t the boy scouts
