Who is the German?

Re: Who is the German?

PreSeason Superstar, then nothing, he barely sniffs the field because his play is not consistent with whatever it is that we're trying to do...

Played with Colts DE Björn Werner at Boston College...

He should be rotating with Galette at the least, guess they want to maximize Galette on the field for sacks to justify that premature extension...

Re: Who is the German?

Hej Cru'.

Kasim Edebali signed on 11th May 2014 as UDFA.
Kasim Edebali signed a 3 year / $1.53 million contract with the New Orleans Saints

He is a real interesting guy. If you want it I can give you a précis of his development from Hamburg thru to Saints.

Kasim has played on teams opposite Björn:
Hamburg Huskies against Berlin Adler.
Boston College against Florida State.
New Orleans Saints against Indianapolis Colts (preseason 23rd August 2014)

(Alas, but NOT Kimball Union Academy, NH against Salisbury School, CT)

Re: Who is the German?

he is a lunch pale kid plain and simple. does nothing at an unbelievable scale but does everything well. that was his MO here at BC. hard worker leaves it all out on the field and does not make a lot of stupid mistakes, plays with discipline. solid football IQ. Unlike a 4th rounder i wont name.

he was one of the few UDFA that were on the must watch list.

But at the same time, does it matter how we get them?

Yes i think it does matter because a Ufda player at best a good back up sometimes you find a gem but the wasted 126th pick should have been a starter in time not a total 100% bust.
