    Before anybody says it, we already have a talented but injury prone RG.

    Sounds like a talented guy. But it looks like injuries will cut his career short. A shame really.

    #12 Jersey

    Maybe we can fuse him and Neal together into one healthy super-guard.

    You guys don't think BB will kick the tires? This seems right in his ballpark to me.

    This reminds me of Kendall Simmons last year. Former first rounder with talent who has struggled with injuries and is released. Maybe some good depth and potential upside for the inevitable Neal injury.

    Disable Jersey

    The correct answer is "In a heartbeat, as long as he passes a rigorous physical to test his level of health".

    The Pats should really take a look at the the guy. I think we can revive his career here. Yup. :]

    This guy has very bad back problems. I would be inclined to pass up on him. Keep Neal as the starter and draft a capable back-up who can come in and replace him in the future.

    I'd kick the tires on him.

    Before this whole injury/mental issues saga, this guy was one of if not the best OGs in the league.

    No harm in letting him meet our docs.

    Why the hell not? Between him and Neal, we'll have a full year of play split between the two of them.

    Shawn - like his sister Stacy - is too fat, too slow, too hurt, and too dull to ever be a contributor here. Pass.
