    Calm down, it was a joke. But if you think Rivers after 3 seasons can turn it around then good for you. No one here is counting on him to contribute. Should we trade for Dominique Easely while we're at it?

    I thought he was out of the league. I thought the Pats cut him. It's a shame what's happened to his career. Hopefully he can shine and get a job somewhere. I can't imagine it'll be with the Pats, but it would be a nice story, like Deion Lewis was.

    I wondered/worried if coming to NEP was the best thing for him considering what type of prospect he was. Thought he was a PTP long before the draft but maybe he would have been better off in a Pitt, Balt, Sea etc?

    Who knows.

    You bet on prospects like him though. There's been like 7 guys to run a 4.60/sub 7 3C & he was one - *edit* >245lbs.
    Terrific production, dominated his comp.

    Again who knows?

    I’m certainly pulling for him why not he is more than likely if healthy a replacement for Collins or Van Noy

    Not counting on him, but happy that he's pushing hard in February.....

    We'll see how he looks in July/August....but at this point anything we can get from him will be a bonus.

    You know if he makes the team and performs at a valuable level he will have loyalty come contract time if we stick with him and the patience pays off.

    Perhaps Rivers is a replacement for Calhoun. I also expect us to draft a LB and to acquire one or two in free agency. It will NOT be easy to replace the production of KVN and Collins. I guess that I'm OK with Winovich and Bentley making up for Collins. KVN will be a serious loss.

    LB: Hightower, Bentley, Winovich, Roberts (we will re-sign him)
    to be re-signed or replaced: KVN, Collins, Calhoun

    I still remember Crable leaping over a o lineman in Michigan and I thought he is going to be a freak.

    I'd say he is a bust. Cut him and save a bit of $$ for a WR/TE.

    Injuries are a part of the game and it's not like he hasn't been trying.

    If he's still on the team it's for a reason. BB may still have hope for him. I'm hoping too because like you said it'd be a good story.

    Yeah I kinda thought he was better-suited for the role of a stricter 3-4 upfield OLB like PIT & BAL use...He doesn't possess the physical requirements of our current DEs, nor the experience as a lateral/midfield OLB...In comparison, Wino is more stout than Rivers and has already shown to not be a total disaster when it comes to setting the edge & stopping the run, so he should be able to play closer to the LOS than Rivers ever would have here.
