Reportedly visiting the Cowobys, and I honestly feel bad for the guy.  He's good enough to be in the NFL, but the media is determined to cover every single thing he does.  So even if an NFL team likes him, they won't give him a shot because of the distractions.  Not trying to make a joke here, but he'd be ideal in San Fran.  Their defense has been depleted, and he would get support there like nowhere else. 

 

Thoughts?

You say he is good enough, but all the professional analysts say he isn't. He isn't fast enough to be a linebacker, he doesn't play special teams, he isn't a three down player, and on and on. He had some good pass rush in preseason, but that wasn't considered enough to cover the gaps he isn't capable of filling. So in closing, who cares if he likes guys or women. the point that he gets so much media attention is just as good for him, as it is bad (as you are pointing out).

He'd be a great addition to the Jets practice squad. Sheldon Richardson would have his back, and I've heard rumors about a robust homosexual community right here in NYC as well.

Honestly?  You don't think that the co-SEC defensive POTY who performed at a high level in the pre-season is worthy of being the 53rd guy on somebody's roster. I think he absolutely is.  There are far worse players in the league.

Tough sell...even though I'd like to see him make it, I'm not sure I want them to get a guy who announced before the draft that he didn't want to be here.

You think so?  I'd agree completely if he went through with that Oprah show.  When I heard about that I was like "eff him...publicity whore" but once he nixed it and just played football, I give him the benefit of the doubt.

he is too slow to be an OLB and too small to be a DE

 

that is the only story anyone should be talking about

 

not because it's my opinion, because it's what he asked for

To be the 53rd guy you have to play specials. If you know you cant get him on the field...add on the questions every day...add on it only being a 16 game season....I can see why organizations are saying let someone else deal with it.

 

WHat would make this entire thing easier if a good player were to come out.

(Chandler)'s a nice piece as long as he's the 7th most important player on your roster....I think they're going to be disappointed when they see he's just a pumped-up Drew Gooden.

I really think all this controversy is more in the minds of the sportswriters and front offices than in most of the fans'.  I can remember when the Knicks fielded the first all black starting five in NBA history-and none of the fans noticed.  The papers and TV  played it up, though.

Absolutely...I'm not saying I don't understand why teams are shying away from him, I just think it's a shame.  He's good enough to warrant a chance.

It was cancelled because Rams didn't want a different version of Hardknocks following their team
