Do you pick up someone or just move Vance Walker back to main roster?

we active Trey Lewis and move Vance to the Active Roster or we sign a FA DT. I think we will be ok, with the Rotation of Babs, Lewis, Johnson.

I kinda figured this was the case even before the twitter. Put Peria on the PUP list, get Trey back in there and move Walker back up to the main roster.

Or give up a draft pick for Henderson from JAX.

I dont think it is that bad, Yeah Peria was improving and showing alot of potential, but he was still a rookie, it is not like we lost a proven Vet.

No, but he is a first rounder who will be 26 before he plays his 3rd game. Given his age, this is

a major loss, since it takes another year out of a career that was already 2 years in the hole

why in the **** are we drafting and picking up all these guys with injury problems. It doesnt make sense. eventually it will bite us on the asss

There's no such thing as being "injury prone"! That's such a stupid term. Either someone gets put in the unlucky position that results in an injury or they don't. Some guys may be too small for the position they play (Reggie Bush) and therefore get injured more often, but that just means they are being put in bad positions by the coach.

There aren't any players out there with invincible ACLs or concussion proof brains, just players that haven't been hit in the wrong place hard enough- yet.

Biggest thing as a team we will be ok IMO, We can worry about the other stuff after the season.

I agree, with Lewis and Walker, we should be fine. Frustrating to see this happen though. If we

assume a 10 year career for the best case scenario 23 year old draftee, Jerry was down 20% to begin with.

Now that number is 30%.
