Re: PFT: Saints, Cardinals In Play For Sean Weatherspoon

has any great LB's (or any player) come back from an Achilles tendon tear? That's a tough injury.

Isn't it funny that all these LB's we are supposedly interested in, we liked in the draft but didn't get any of them?

Re: PFT: Saints, Cardinals In Play For Sean Weatherspoon

He's freaking good if healthy, and still young. I just worry because usually when a player starts down that many injuries there is no coming back. Heart is there, but body gives out.

The one person I have always regretted never seeing play for the Saints (cause he had moments of brilliance) was Cie Grant.

I remember him doing damage against us (INT). He is also a good player.

They don't play them same position. Foster is a MLB. Weatherspoon is an outside linebacker. You sign them both, because they're both major upgrades in athleticism and speed. Weatherspoon is really good y'all. Idk if y'all forgot because he's been hurt as of late.

Sources claim Weatherspoon twisted an ankle reading this thread.

Re: PFT: Saints, Cardinals In Play For Sean Weatherspoon

Personally, I loved the dude coming out of college. Really wanted us to draft him, really pissed me off that the clowns got him first. I would not be opposed to it if we finally got him. Yes the injuries are worrisome, but even acl tears are not the career threatening things they once were. Huge strides have been made in just the last few years in how they repair and treat them. As for his twitter rant or whatever the hell it was, I agree with previous posters in that ours is one of the most heated rivalries in sports, so it's to be expected. Especially considering that the abomination that is social media makes it entirely too easy for people to get themselves into trouble.. If we can get him at a reasonable price, I'm sold.
