I hope he gets this resolved and returns to the Saints to finish out his contract.

3 teams in 6 years. We got a good year out of him. And the timing of his condition is really sweet for him. Almost too perfect:

March gets the deal. June he is done. Possible things took a turn for the worse in a matter of weeks but highly improbable.

Highly improbable? Based upon what? Every new contract is preceded by a physical exam. What was found at OTA's in an exam three months later would have been found during the exam in March if it was present.

Health first, good decision by all. I hope there is a procedure that can help him live a long, healthy life with less worry. No reason to risk it. My football fan brain does lament not having both he and Junior (with his head on straight) out there with Rankins and Jordan.

2018 nfl draft

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.
I would have took Vea this year if he left college. I also like the Arkansas guy. Both should be solid blue collar picks. Don't know if the Steelers let go of Tuitt.

Shrimp you can't really pay any attention to people posting on here and criticizing you. Those same people said we were weaker without NF and now since he will not play they say that we are no better or worse without him. If those seem like conflicting ideas that is because they are.

Exactly who and where did anyone say the Saints would be better without Fairley? I have read every post concerning Fairley and I haven't seen anyone imply that. It was hinted at concerning Armstead's absence, though.

Re: Nick Fairley Placed on NFI

Don't know the contract. Haven't heard from front office about it. Here's a supposition. IF they did not have a clause concerning his condition and playing they BLEW it. If they did have a clause..It was a head's up contract. One thing for sure - going forward they will have a clause for all such contingencies.

Re: Nick Fairley Placed on NFI

I think they signed him to take care of him knowing his condition was not good. His condition is progressive from my understanding. Improbable it went from fine to horrible that fast.

I know they have contingencies built into Manti Te'o's contract with him coming off his injury. But, guarantees in contracts are guarantees. Now, they could negotiate a reduction of guarantees such as signing bonuses. If they want to be hardasses they can even try to prove the players failed to report conditions they knew about that were unknown to the team. That is standard verbiage in the NFL player contract.
