    Have no idea what happened to this guy. Thought 2nd rd the latest, goes UDFA and now released. I would kick the tires on him, we are weak at ILB. Never heard any attitude problems, never anything about poor work ethics and all he did was produce on the field. At worst he is 2 down LB but he could be better than that IMO. Vince won’t be here much longer.

    There will be some pretty good free agent ilb next year. We need to see what we have. Vince hopefully will be cut loose by then. I'd love nothing more then to get a good complimentary duo back together on the interior. It's been a long time coming. Too long actually. :cool:

    Huh?!?!


    He was released?! Thought he would stay with an NFL Team. I also would give him a shot. Have him challenge Robert Spillane for that final spot.


    Both have the ceiling of Special Teams anyway. However, getting more competition is by no means a bad thing. That said, who knows how OTAs will play out given COVID-19 and never mind Training Camp. :eek:

    I thought of that too. They will have a hard enough time evaluating what is already here.

    If they bring anyone in at this point, it will be for proven players.

    There was a lot of talk here about him a couple years ago no?

    Its really to bad. If they even play a lot of talent will get a quick look and likely get the boot. If there was ever a year for an XFL type of experience next year would really prove interesting. Not going to happen, but would be nice for some of these guys to get that second look.

    I remember him being pretty mobile while playing at ND.

    I'm more interested in antoine brooks, UG3 and spillane. I think these guys could be hidden gems at ilb.:cool:

    I don’t think he was high on many’s list because it’s felt he is a 2 down LB which is a fair argument.

    I remember liking his teammate better (whose name eludes me). His teammate was not on the media radar until close to the draft, but ended up being taken in - I think the 3rd or 4th round.
