I KNOW this happened Thursday night....and it's Satuurday..but there really has been little said about it. The Burgess trade has been a tidal wave..and with good reason!! Replacing Vrable..pass rush...Oakland..Is he too old..injured?? Wants money?? It all goes on and on....BUT what wa soverlooked has been that AL Johnson is gone.. OK..not THAT big a deal..but...only 3 mentioned that in the Burgess thread... Patchick...who wondered if this meant Ohrnberger was READY to be teh beats....Spacecrime who wondered what would happen if Koppen/Hochstein went down and DaBruinz..who pointed out that 1.1 mil was saved..... Some on here claimed the coming of a tall center meant that MAYBE Koppen was in trouble...that Johnson would make it to the 53...Haven't heard from many of those folk in the past 40 hours or so.... BUT I did think a separate thread was needed...NO it's not a big move..but certainly one worth discussing. .He was injured..but to what extent that played a part is unknown..My guess is that it was not a major factor. The saving of 1.1 mil though might be. Wendell played some center in camp, but he's smaller..6'2"...Connolly?? He's more Hochstein size...Ohrenberger?? He's smallish as well...6'2"...so??? What about all the notion of a tall center being needed?? Was this more a release to free some cash?? Thoughts???
