Well...lets see, bear with me.
I put zero stock in his performance in Oakland. Oakland is a total cluster puck and a career ender for anyone who gets stuck there.
None of Oaklands picks have worked out, none of their FA have worked out, none of their trades have worked out, none of their coaches has worked out, none of ...well..you get the picture.
At some point the laws of certainty prevail and it's the system and not the players.
Now...that being said. The off field stuff certainly bears checking out, for sure.
NE has shown a willingness to give players a second chance and have hit on a few and missed on a few.
You must at least take notice when the 8th pick in the 2010 draft is cut.
He's better suited to a 3-4 which I and others have said for months is what we must return to running. He a strong side LB in a 3-4.
I'll kick the tires on anybody, anytime, if it don't cost me much. Why the heck not, it's a crap shoot but a free one.
Oakland offered him in a trade for a 7th rounder and had no bites.
But, call me crazy, I would peek under the hood.....
