    Surprised there wasn’t a thread for this already. This seemed inevitable with Suggs, Reed, and maybe Bosa jumping onboard.

    Good luck to him.

    Damaged goods? 1 ACL TEAR in today’s world is hardly damaged goods.... Most players aren’t at their full 100% till their 2nd year. This will be his 2nd post injury.

    Todd Gurley, Frank Gore and a plethora of other players have had ACLs and some multiple years and still come back to be very productive...

    For sure. But the Cards obviously have their doubts about his ability to come back and be the guy he was pre-Injury. I’m no doc and I haven’t examined him... But the Cards were apparently quite convinced. Doesn’t mean he can’t prove them wrong... And I hope he does!

    Amazing that Buc and Golden were considered some of our best defenders on a top 10 defense just a year ago and now can only get 1-year deals.

    Steve Wilks cost a lot of guys money.

    NYC dailies say the Giants signed WR Bretton Golden. Did they sign Bretton or Markus?

    I was really, really rooting for him to become a homegrown, talented keeper of an edge rusher. He was on pace until that injury and unfortunately, it stopped there. He should be fully healthy now, I hope he has a great year and gets paid. Real humble guy with a lot of passion for the game. Always stayed and did interviews even in the worst of times.

    An injury year and a bad year.

    Id like to have had him back and he didn't get a payday so it would have been worth it to have him and suggs rotating in but maybe he didn't want to be a backup to bosa and jones?

    I will miss him, and I heard we were open to having him back, but with Suggs, and possibly Bosa, his smartest move was to play under Bettcher for a year and regain value.

    I hope he kills it for them.

    This is terrible news. The team must have absolutelyzero faith in him returning to his pre-injured status. Terrible move on our part imo.
