    Well, these are all guys who pump themselves up 100+ pounds above their healthy weight then play a violent sport that will probably cause them long term health problems. Well they BETTER be head cases LOL!!

    While he has started a lot of games for the Broncos over the last two season he hasn't been great by any means. Don't think he would be an improvement over any of the guys currently on the roster.

    "Insert Random DT"

    How about Deandre Coleman? He had a decent preseason, the Jacksonville D-line just was too deep (sounds like a joke, but I'am serious). He also seems to be a better fit in a 3-4. It might also be possible to sign him to our practice squad (if he goes unclaimed).

    Another option would be to give a guy like Still a second chance.

    Question is, will we even bring in a DT to replace Raji? Is or that DT already on our roster?

    Devon Still doesn't "need" a 2nd chance right now. His 4 yr. old daughter has stage 4 cancer and he wants to spend time with her, to the point where he told the team that he wanted to retire. They may sign him to PS just to keep him "in the family" and in Cincy near her.

    If life changes for him he may be a guy to keep on file... but right now football is a distant 2nd (or lower) on his priority list.

    The Packers won't go for Vickerson yet. He wasn't drafted by TT. Rolle was clearly way better than Goodsen but tTT let Rolle walk to save his pick. The Packers put a premium on their own picks and discount the other guys unless they get desperate.

    Obviously I didn't know that. That is very sad news. Hopefully she can recover.
