    This was posted over on Football's Future. Please note it WAS a joke (by the linked site, not the poster I've quoted); there should be a hint of that in the text below).

    What's scary is that it's not entirely implausible; he's 6'3", 260#. On the videos, he's #8, and boy does he lay some lumber.

    Chabal is a beast. Just a great, ferocious player on the field, and actually a surprisingly nice guy off it.

    I am French and I grew up watching rugby just about every week end. I do not remember anyone tackling better than this guy. All April fool jokes aside, I would be PUMPED to have him man the MLB position on our team :D

    if hes smart enough and can speak english, i would give him a try.....we need all the help we can get, and BB needs something other then the draft to occupy his mind for a couple of days....

    actually, i would LOVE it if he was brought in for a workout, LOL

    Chabal wouldn't be bad in NFL, he tends to get a bit confused with the rules in Rugby. Outside Linebacker, he'd be very respectable indeed.Probably wouldn't ask anywhere near 15 million either. Couple of beers,an ox to eat now and again
    and a bear to wrestle would probably get the job done.

    GM Ed McKeever was a nice touch.

    He almost drafted a dead guy.

    You think? Rugby boys are super fit. He's an utter monster of a player.

    Plays for my local Union side actually. Well, I say 'local'.

    Oh please. Don't be like these guys.

    http://www.footballsfuture.com/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?t=218624&postdays=0&postorder=asc&start=15

    Remind me why I don't take rumors from other boards seriously (Last years Chad Jackson injury rumor notwithstanding).

    Some hairy guy makes a couple rugby tackles and we're giving him 5 mil per to play LB? These guys should be ashamed.

    Actually, this is a real good draft site and run by a KFFLer I think.

    For shame:p

    btw, isnt it funny how the French could have used any team, and yet they use the Pats? i wonder what that tells us about the pats in the rest of the non NFL world

    You mean the fact that they named a GM who hasn't been with the team for 40 years wasn't enough? You're hard to convince.

    I hope none of you guys are the least bit serious.

    I would take him over Monty Beisel though.

    (metaphorically. In reality, Beisel would still be 100 times better because he knows how to play football)

    That we need linebackers, for one thing.

    And that we have a surfeit of gullible messageboard posters these days.

    Big difference between "I keek a touchdown" and playing linebacker on the Patriots. He'd be 40 before he learned enough to actually play other than special teams.

    I could see coaching up a nose tackle or other freak physical lineman. Bigger upside and less to learn.
