*Thread title and post edited for Vaughn's edited tweet - He said he'd miss minicamp first, then changed it to first day of minicamp.

Hmm still wondering why we picked Jalen Collins over Randy Gregory when ignoring pass rushers was all Mike Smiths idea. Gregory a top 5 talent sitting in the 2nd would had addressed the issue without question.

I've said it before and will continue to say it - Randy Gregory was drafted (and Greg Hardy was signed) to a team where the GM cannot be fired if he (they) is a trainwreck.

Adrian Clayborn, O'Brien Schofield, Vic Beasley, Brooks Reid.

I don't think we are ignoring the pass rush.

We had only two returning corners from last year. The position was a need.

In one of their predraft press conferences, Quinn and TD were asked about players with character concerns and whether or not they would take them. They responded that it depended on whether they believed that player would negatively effect other players in the locker room, and that it would require the confidence in the coaches that the could build a strong support group around them, to prevent them from screwing up again. Many on here, assumed that they were referring to Randy Gregory. It is now however clear that they were referring to Collins, and maybe Ray (FOs probably knew about this stuff before he was caught by media).

Whether many on here like it or not, they simply didn't feel comfortable with him in their locker room. I'm going to respect their decision as they know far more about their locker room and about Gregory's issues, which has already been said to be way more than was ever reported, than we ever will.

Even more, we still drafted another DB late, and brought in more DBs undrafted, than any other position, so Quinn clearly does not feel as comfortable with our backfield as the fans do.

Clayborn is on a 1 year deal.

Schofield and Reid are pass rushers? You should have added Beirmann for good measure.

By the way which one of them are better than Gregory?

All as of right now, even Biermann. Gregory has not played a down of football in the NFL...

Tell 'em about it! So what if Josh Gordon, Justin Blackmon, and Dion Jordan got suspended for entire seasons thanks to succumbing to substance abuse issues? Gregory's failing to stay clean and his missing multiple meetings with interested teams should be discounted because he's a top 5 talent and will suddenly flip a switch and become both a defensive standout and a leader in the locker room. These fools just don't want to give somebody a fifth chance.

90 mintes late to meetings and even didn't show for another one. He's worrisome. Plus, Dallas got da thugz.

Also as of note, we did not bring in a single undrafted pass rusher, and only have 3 in for tryout, so Quinn actually believes that we already have enough competition there. wink.png
