How on earth do you sign someone who already has an enlarged heart, to a long-term deal? Hell, how is he NOT getting physicals more often than anyone based on his pre existing condition alone???

I wish nothing but the best for Fairly, my frustration isn't pointed at him at all. But how does this even happen???!!!

Just further evidence that the front office and Sean need to go. How many times are they gonna make same mistake.

Here we go with all the excuses to sheild them both from blame from the blind people who dont or WON'T see it. Ready 3 2 1.

Somebody needs to explain why this known ailment wasn't explored more thoroughly before signing him...

Local Sports Show Host Eric Asher has really been pressing the question if it's not time to move on from Ochsner Sports Health...

NEVER pay journeymen more than a year. If you get a good year consider yourself lucky and move on. I wish the guy the best but this is killing us. We keep getting burned by the same scenario year after year. It's beyond stupid.
Especially on the defensive side. They almost NEVER work out.

Lmao! Dude back away from the cliff. Look I'm pissed about this too, but I don't think this justifies firing Sean Payton. I'm confident they didn't sign Fairley and think this was going to be an issue. Lol. Why don't you wait until after this season to determine if Payton needs the ax.

NF was our second best pass rusher, possibly top 15 in the NFL with interior pressure & had 3 good years as a DT just hitting his prime.

He was far from a "journeyman".

I voted to let him walk as a FA. Not that I dislike him but would liked to have a better player able to be more effective while at nose. I hope he has a good life outside of football.

Re: Nick Fairley Placed on NFI

injury settlement time

Based on camp injury and the worries as players injuries started to rear it's ugly head

2018 nfl draft
R1 - Vita Vea DT Washington 6041 332 5.19 #50 rJr
R3 - Frank Ragnow C/OG,Arkansas 6052 319 5.14 #72 Sr

Top FA signing - not sold we have the starter yet
Stephon Tuitt DE Steelers

Now you have a solid DE rotation.

Shrimp only emerges from under his rock when he has an opportunity to rail at Payton.

Exactly. Her was a first round draft choice that was finally being used as he should.
