    I understand your point and I've actually found this quite interesting that not just the Packers but no NFL teams have even given him a look. He's never coming back to that Packers though so it's time to move on.

    Hey, don’t exaggerate – according to nfl.com, in 17 games MD had ONE pass defended! And Burnett had a bad year but in 14 games he had 6 passes defended. Seriously, as bad as MD was the Packers determined McMillian and Banjo were worse and Richardson didn’t take over for him either – I hope because he wasn’t up to speed on the D. It does no good to know the defense like the back of your hand if you can’t make a play anyway.

    Just from what I’ve read on this thread, I wouldn’t sign Decoud. The aim has to be more than getting marginally better at safety.

    Well, I do understand the hesitation and reluctance. No team wants to be responsible if any player gets paralyzed or something. On the flip side of that argument, sadly, that can happen to ANY player and ANY time. I remember very well, the Mike Utley injury in Detroit and he was a lineman.

    Plus I doubt anything has really changed in the last 2 years. I'm no doctor but I don't believe it's a situation where anything is going to just miraculously "heal" over a 2 year period to the point where he could be cleared.

    I thought Collins was found to have some kind of degenerative issue that is the reason.
