Honestly, I think one AARP-eligible LB is enough.
Unless the injury bug strikes again.
That, my friends, is what you call a Shadow Roster... a f-ing deep Shadow Roster.
I would LOVE to see Phifer play for us again. Anywhere other than the world of pro football, 38 is considered a young man. With all the advancements in training, nutrition and medical technology, I see no reason football players can't play into their late thirties and maybe even early forties.
Just began reading the game threads, so pardon me if this is up elsewhere.
The NFL Network edition of the broadcast showed a graphic that the Patriots employ
two of the five oldest active players - Seau and Chad Brown.
Unremarked by the announcers was that the Pats also recently had employed
2 of the remaining 3 - Washington and Traylor.
Maybe the Pats can get Jerry Rice to do the sign,retire,sign with us as well and end our wr woes.
Given that Brown is not getting on the field, and TBC stepping it up hard. Brown is rapidly becoming expendable.
I agree..shadow roster..he is all ready and may be called upon..possibly if things do not get straightened out in a few weeks. I did see a graphic..didn't know exactly what they were talking about as the volume was way down..
Chad Brown...his wrist/hand injury is being played down..I think he will have a solid year at OLB...which should make things really interesting..a tough LB corps this year!!
Steve Largent has kept himself in good shape as well and deserves a shot at a ring.
