Zeke Motta Waived


Recommended Posts

Huh... that's interesting. Not a lot of safety depth left.

FS: Southward, Godfrey, Baker, Bishop

SS: Moore, Ishmael

Figured Motta might not make it back with all of the rumors that he never healed properly from his 2013 injury. We could definitely use another strong safety in training camp given Moore's injury history, though I'd be content with a UDFA.

lol. I had us cutting Zeke when we were doing the whole salarycap dance - not that it was much of a salary saver - just said he was not worthy of a spot - hjerry had a cow. he loves him some Zeke Motta.

You have a short memory. I was a part of that convo and also cut him in my mocks haha

Cutting players still on their rookie contracts in mocks, remains a pointless thing to do, and I retain my opinion that he wasn't bad, before his injury.

If they cut him, it's b/c he wasn't healthy.

This opinion has nothing to do with Motta, but is universal to all players still on their rookie contracts. If you picked a player that spent last season on the PS, I would say the exact same thing.

Just read an article that he actually had 2 surgeries to repair that injury ... the last one in July 2014 that required a second plate to be inserted, and a bone graft from his hip.

The man started and played a football game with a broken neck sustained the game before. He's got nothing left to prove in my book.

Here's the article for anyone who is interested:
