How do we save money? Do you understand the cap issues that a trade or release of Ware would cause?
Am I the only one who is loving the churning on this roster these days? Serious post.
This is a great move. Take a flyer on the guy and see how Rod gets him going.
Guy is super talented and was the #1 recruit in high school in the entire nation. He may never play a down for us, but little risk involved with churning the bottom of your roster and looking ahead to what we need to do in the next year's draft by sifting through the remains of the league.
No, I think it's great. This off-season/season has really restored some faith in the FO and their ability to find talent.
I love that we aren't standing pat anymore. If a guy gets injured, stops producing, etc etc we are making the right moves it seems.
That's why I said if we can save money
I think it comes down to a question of Ware's production verses his salary. It is not hard to replace his production at this time. Ware is on the downside if his career and the last thing this team needs is another huge salary cap hit that comes from injured player. It comes a time to let these players go. This could be another Rat type of deal if Jerry allows it.
Well I hope his mindset of desire, motivation and work ethic has changed.
IF you can get the production. You can't do either of those things. That's why people think it's ridiculous.
If my Chevy Malibu gave me the production of a Lamborghini for the price I'm paying, I'd be all set, wouldn't I?
Not sure if this was already mentioned, but it will tough seeing number 90 without clenching my teeth a little.
Yes, it's an interesting choice since he's clearly been the WKG for most of his career.
Thanks for posting this Dooms. Lett and Marinelli have their hands full but this kid does have talent. Need to get that head screwed on right.
Now we need take a chance on Sam Montgomery. I saw this kid at LSU. He was damn good. Ron Marinelli could motivate him to play. He was better in the 4-3 DE in LSU anyway. He would be a perfect DE for our 43 defense.
Ware is injured for one and playing DE in a new scheme. Is he at his peak, maybe not but he's certainly not done nor is his production and presence as easily replaceable as some of you seem to think.
Unbelieveable how much rope a guy like Spencer gets after ONE pro bowl season while Ware has one missed game or a couple poor games and now it's time to cut bait. I'm at a loss for words when a guy like Rat (who I really liked) who's had multiple injury shortened or obviously poor seasons is used to rationalize getting rid of Ware who has been an absolute sack producing stud and defensive god year in year out injuries be damned since his second season. SMH
I don't think Rod and Hatcher (and the other players) will let that happen.
I think this guy needs Leon's Lett's lessons from personal experience and Marinelli's coaching. I predict that he will excell.
It's boom or bust... the kid has some serious talent...
It is not hard to match his current production. Ware is going down. Is it wise to pay for past production? I think not. This is a business . There is no loyalty among the players or the teams. I had rather get rid of him a year early than be stuck with him a year late. It is bad business to overpay just because Ware was great at one time. His injury situation has been getting worse every year. It will come a time that he is just not worth the cap hit and that time is getting closer.
