    Does this mean Taylor to IR? They had room for Clayton the other day before promoting Ohrnberger.

    I was wondering that, how they'd add him without IR'ing Taylor.

    Man, can't Taylor EVER stay healthy ? I know he's older, but he's had the injury bug his whole career.

    Anyone know if the compensation for Ojinnaka was conditional? If so, have those conditions been met? I hope we don't owe anything for an inactive player who was cut after a couple weeks; that's a very poor return on investment.

    Not like we lost anything by doing so.

    It's certainly possible that others on the OL have overachieved.

    Yes it was a conditional pick, and I'm pretty sure it was not met.

    Taylor had actually been fairly healthy his last few years with the Jags. Wasn't until joining the NEP that the old age injuries hit.

    As far as Clayton, all I know about him is when I saw him on the field in the preseason I thought "Now that looks like a RB." Not much to go on, but it's all I got.

    Good thing.

    And for that matter. Anyone know the compensation that the Pats traded for White and Page?

    Since the trade was for a conditional pick, it's pretty likely that we didn't give up anything for Ojinnaka. Teams like the Falcons make these trades because they're planning to cut a guy anyway, and trading for a conditional pick at least gives them the possibility of getting some compensation back. Since he only stuck with the team for 3 games, I doubt we're even losing a 7th rounder at this point.

    I'm pretty sure they traded a 7th for White. Not sure about Page.

    Actually, I asked Reiss, and this was his response:

    Hm. Not sure I like that.

    Why so many RBs in our main roster? I am fine with the 4 we have now.
