    The Reinstatements move slow. He will likely be reinstated before the start of mini- camps.

    Just pray he doesn't pick up the ganja any time soon.

    Im not worried about this season, he has a chip on his shoulder and out to prove everyone wrong.

    Its moving forward after this season that I dont know if his resolve will crumble.

    I had forgot how much separation he is able to create. Not to mention, how comfortable Ben looks throwing to him.

    He may have been the difference at getting the bye week and the SB...

    His footwork was really good as well.

    My main concern with his play is if he reverts to his rookie preseason mode, when he tended not to fight for the ball as much and look for the PI flag instead. He developed out of that habit during the season, and hopefully it's stuck...

    I will always believe that 2016 would have ended differently with him on the team. We lacked that 2nd weapon in the passing game when we needed it the most.

    My son always talked about him but for some reason I just thought AB was 100x better. Watching that video and some others, man was I wrong.

    Oh boy really think so, we couldn't cover anybody in the Patriot game.
    He is a selfish dope head that let his teammates and coaches and mgmt down.
    I hope he proves me wrong and rights these wrongs.But I have my doubts.

    That was from the loss to Baltimore. Pivotal game and he was really feeling the sting of being suspended.

    To be as long as he is with the footwork he's developed....

    Man he's great to watch. You can't press him either, because he's developed that strength to shrug it off and fly downfield!

    Yeah I don't hold that tweet against him. I didn't really think he was saying anything that wasn't true. I know what makes people mad is that he did it to himself...and that I can agree with. I suspect he will come back with something to prove and when someone with his skill has something to prove it usually turns out well. On a side note, I haven't given up on Sammie yet. I believe the sky is the limit for his abilities. I still think he can be dangerous if things turn out right for him, or he can be another Wheaton.

    This.

    Dont know what wasn't true in that. Welcoming him back with open arms and glad he has a chip on his shoulders.
