    There is a higher chance of Glemm playing. And I heard he’s not very good.

    This isn’t meant to be rude to Shazier. But he can barely walk.

    He's gotten this far back, who's to say he won't make it all the way back. At first I was thinking no way this guy should ever play football again even if he has a full recovery but seeing as how important it is to him to play again, I'm rooting to see him suit up again some day.

    The guys putting in 2 hours a day 5 days a week of rehab. Like I said, I'm not doubting him.

    His playing days are over, lets not fool ourselves. The body's nervous system doesn't repair itself like other parts of the body. I'm grateful he can walk again tbh.

    I didn't even want a team to sign Welker and I'm not even a fan.

    He should be given a defensive quality control position and go from there.

    If ryan shazier got healthy somehow by miracle and ran his 4.35 40yd dash , there would be a bidding war going on with just about every team that has cap space involved.... Not 1 owner would care about the possibility of him being hurt again...........

    Yes, I'm sure there are teams out there that would take him, but I hope he doesn't play again no matter how healthy he is. I would love to see him make it back into good enough shape to play but would hate to see him do it. Wouldn't be worth the risk in my opinion!

    I have a better chance of becoming the Pope than him playing football again. It sucks to have such a promising career end so quickly, but to count on him making any contribution as a player would be foolish and stupid.

    I'll take "what has a snowball's chance in hell of happening" for $200 Alex.

    A guy like Sean Spence severely injured his knee, he works his tail off and gets back in the league. But he's never the same player he was before the injury. He basically was a marginal player when he returned.

    Shazier's injury has got to be worse by a factor of ten. Good luck to him, but even if, a big if, he gets medical clearance, his chance of being able to make a team are very low, and his chance of being more than special teamer or backup are even lower.

    He gets moved to the front office. Too much of an inspiration not to have him with the team. Never give up attitude

    Ryan Shazier will look good on our scouting department.

    Even if Ryan Shazier was out for a season with something far less serious, like a knee injury, he would still have to compete for a spot on the team, and then a starting position when he got back. I am sure Shazier understands the nature of the game. With that in mind, why the heck didn't the Steelers draft, or sign another quality linebacker? Were they worried about hurting Shazier's esteem? I'm sorry, but this is the NFL! A team can not hold a spot for a player, who, in all likelihood, is not going to return to the field. Nothing against Shazier.
