    Dez was filming. They are conspiring to get one of them back on the team.

    I think it upsets folks that TO can still do the things he can do despite his age. Which is odd. You’re sitting at home in front of a computer. Why worry About an athlete that doesn’t have any relevancy as it pertains to your favorite team.

    Running a 40 that fast at his age, is very impressive.

    However, the bigger issue at his age is the recovery time.

    It’s one thing to run a fast 40 right now when all he is doing is training and working out.

    Can his body hold up, withstand the grind of a training camp and maintain the same explosiveness and flexibility over an entire NFL season, while getting hit on a weekly basis? At his age, probably not. Chances are he would get some kind of nagging injury, as most older players in the league do, due to the fact that their bodies take longer to recover from practice to practice, game to game.

    In other words.... despite this impressive 40 time. T.O. Is done playing at a high level in the NFL.

    As strong as he is, it's not crazy to think that he can take the hits at that age. I train Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and there are some guys who have conditioned their body to be physically tough well into their 40's. I'm not saying you're wrong, but I'm saying know one really knows. If he truly takes care of himself as well as he can, then I do think it's possible.

    I mean you’re right there has been athletes, particularly fighters that perform well into their 40’s although typically there is much more time between professional fights, than there is between NFL games.

    So can we all just agree that running a 4.4 forty at age 44 is ridiculously impressive?

    I don't think that's disputable. I can't run that fast by any stretch of the imagination, and I'm 25.

    I can see it now, T.O. signs with the (enter team name here), tests positive for PEDs and will be suspended for 4 games.

    Look, I wish the guy the best and I'm sure he is physically capable of taking the hits if he kept himself in great shape. But I find it near to impossible to maintain that kind of speed at the age of 44. Speed is just something you lose as you age.

    When you look up “locker room cancer” it shows a big shot of Terrell’s ugly mug.

    I don’t get the hate for Dak. It’s almost like they’re not even watching the games.

    I could flip your words and say that I don't get how someone WOULDN'T be concerned about Dak. It's almost like they're not even watching the games.

    We all know TO has top end and strength. When was a time you actually saw TO get ran down from behind when he's in full stride?

    Never understood the whole Witten is/was slow thing. We're seeing what slow looks like with Gathers.
