    So this hit the headlines the other day an I thought it was sort of panned by the media.

    Personally, If he is right, we have really won the off season.

    You be the judge.

    Oh no..I think my next post is going to be a Dak Thread.

    Stand by you hungry Cowboy fans.

    Pickens are slim with no sports on TV. I just paid my internet bill becuz this is my lifeline anymore.

    But you guys are getting touchy these days. hang in there.

    Agree with them, since Aldon Smith has been reinstated, then Randy Gregory needs to be reinstated as well.

    Aldon Smith has been out of football for almost 5 years. He’s been given a second chance. Gregory has already had a second chance. He can’t make it a year without violating the rules. Smith paid a heavy price but every year we go through the same thing with Gregory. The commissioner may keep him suspended longer this time.

    The situation we’re in with this virtual offseason may very well kill Smith’s chances of making the team. He hasn’t played football since November 2015. He needs all the on the field work he can get in pads. He’s not going to have the benefit of mini camps or OTA’s. If there’s a training camp he’s going have to hit the running which is going to be very difficult. That will be the first time he has pads on in almost 5 years. Good luck!

    I had to chuckle about the statement that Aldon might not make the team, are you guys serious? This guy is going to come in a wreck havoc in the NFL. I don't care if he hasn't played in 5 years the guy is a freak of nature and even if we get a 70% Aldon Smith he is better than anyone we have on that Dline including Dlaw that was major disappointment last year.

    You must have just started following football if you think a player who hasn’t played in almost 5 years and won’t have the benefit of OTAs and mini camps is going to come in and wreck havoc. There’s no guarantees he makes the team. He’s going to have his work cut out for him. He wasn’t playing that well the last two seasons he played he only had 5 sacks. If you still want to see him for what he was 8 and 9 years ago go ahead.

    I agree on Aldon Smith but DLaw was still an excellent player in run defense and pressures. He had the most pressures of any player with 5 sacks and there were at least 3 or 4 sacks he would have had if Quinn hasn't gotten to the QB a half step before him.

    If you honestly believe he’s going to wreck havoc after almost 5 years away from the game battling substance abuse and other issues you won’t be getting back to me. lol

    Gregory's track record is far better than Aldon Smith and doesn't have a lengthy track record of police reports.

    Shout-out to Redball for this content.
    Shout-out to Chris Simms for smoking resposibly, and letting ppl know some guys are better off and ball out on herb.
    Shout-out to Tony Romo for introducing the term "meritocracy to the NFL.

    Who on the roster will keep Aldon from making the team? Nobody!

    Reinstate RG and get on with it!

    All the problems Smith has had is the reason he hasn’t played in five years. He’s being given a second chance. Gregory has a poor track record coming back from suspension’s. He’s seeking a third chance. It’s not like these suspensions have gotten through to him. Relaxing the rules certainly isn’t going to get him off pot.

    Yep -- I think its a pretty realistic way of approaching that new policy.

    Those with a long history of violations had better tow the line or else.

    The days of welcoming offenders with bad habits are here no longer.

    They didn’t sign him to sit him. He’s going to kick *** in the PS games and have a great reg season.

    Signing him doesn’t guarantee he makes the team.

    If I were a betting man, I'd be willing to wager Smith would last longer than Randy.

    Throughout all the chances that Randy was given, he's failed miserably to reform.
