Re: Kikaha - torn ACL

Just wondering... Freeny has already rejected a few offers.

I wonder how much he wants?
Will he only sign with a legit contender?
Will he wait until more injuries occur and ride in on his white horse for mega-bucks?
Would he be a good fit here with our mixed schemes?

And from what I understand Gwachum bulked up to 260 pounds and was a serious contender to pressure Kikaha for snaps. Looks like he won't have to battle now

Sad for the young man. Hope he gets well soon. Great motor. Great college player. But, he lacks NFL size as a rush end and didn't have the speed to play OLB. He's never going to be anything but an average role player in the NFL at best.

Very true, but he was gonna be a pretty important role player for us since pass rush was such a glaring weakness for us to start with.

I also wonder how hard it is to replace a 1-dimensional player?

We could go the rest of the season with no real significant injuries. But I know what you are thinking: Step away from the narcotics. Check into rehab forthwith.
