I'm predicting he won't make much of an impact. He can play the run, but if he gets more than 3 sacks, I'd be surprised.

My overall point is that Dallas could have had him. Word was his preference was to stay there and they made little effort to sign him even though he was at a position of need. They also would have had the best access to his medical records.

I could be wrong, but banking on Spencer would be a mistake. It's a meh signing to me.

Yes micro fracture surgery can take a while to recover. Good thing he's had two years to do it!

Where you're making an assumption here is that Ryan is "banking" on Spencer to be more than be an above average back up. He signed a one year deal. Does that sound like he's the future OLB?

Look, to build his defense Ryan needs guys he can trust, who are familiar with his system and can be leaders in the locker room.

If I didn't know better it almost sound like you're rooting against him.

Reggie Bush took a couple of years to recover from his. The timing may be right for Spencer.

Low risk,high reward -> this year's Champ Bailey

I don't think this has anything to do with Galette. Cutting/trading JG pre-June 1 costs us $10,750,000. I don't see it.

Its simple. Its a 1 year prove it contract.

He's not the answer, he's just good help until we find the answer.

It really depends on where in the joint you get the surgery. During the 2009 season I got injured in May, had micro fracture surgery done almost right away and played again in september. So the healing can be pretty quick. I was 28 back then so no spring chicken either.
