Your point being?

Now he goes on IR, we don't have to cut him and take a dead money hit, and we can get a younger/faster player to take his spot if "warm bodies" are what you are worried about.

Not seeing the downside here.

Turrible. Just Turrible. Rob Ryan just can't freaking catch a break. Going to be interesting to see what Sean and Loomie do about it...if anything. It's a big opportunity for one of the younger guys, sure, but who?

Re: Will Smith out for the Season

I might think of putting Rufus in there, baptism by fire and see how he turns out, he looks the part but raw.

You fail to see the downside because you do not understand cap, or dead money.

"This includes a player that is on Injured Reserve (IR), Physically Unable to Perform (PUP), and the Practice Squad (PS). Practice Squad contracts are included in a teamís Salary Cap during the season except in certain situations where a practice squad player is signed to another teamís 53-man roster."

Yeah, whatever, I edited my post when I realized my mistake. It still doesn't make a difference.

I rarely ever post here, but I've seen the way you operate too many times and I'm done with it. Feel free to post in a less condescending manner in the future.

Re: Will Smith out for the Season

This is not addition by subtraction as some would like to think. Will Smith was not going to be great at rushing the passer, in-fact he would have been bellow average, however the guy was great at stopping the run.

With this latest development I am interested to see if Wilson and Gallete get time in P4, I feel they should get 1 or two series.

Richardson has played well and I think we should see more of Martin, Johnson has played many snaps but has not made many plays.

I don't think Wilson will return until week one, or at least that's what I understood. His injury has a 4-6 week diagnosis, I can't see Payton risking further injury for a preseason game.

Re: Will Smith out for the Season

This isn't good at all. While Smith had become the new Shanle for a lot f fans fact still remains no coach will put a player in the starting lineup that he don't think gives the team the best chance to win. Obviously Smith was that guy at this point whether we fans agree or not.
I sure hope we have some young guys that can develop in a hurry.
