You cannot put this on the Saints front office at all. They did their due diligence, but fate stepped in.
Or maybe they knew but wanted to take care of him. I don't know but that is a short time frame for something to go from pass to fail for something he has been playing with for years.

They could have taken care of him without a contract and off the books. Teams have done stuff like that for years. Arrhythmia can appear suddenly.

Hey, spk! Any clues yet on that mysterious poster that you claimed crap about? Just admit you screwed up in your crusade and move on.

I wish nothing but the best for Fairly, my frustration isn't pointed at him at all. But how does this even happen???!!!
I take up for the front office 99 percent of the time but I feel you on this one. We have to quit paying players to not play. This is getting ridiculous

Former Ravens stud LB Zach Orr is coming out of retirement after having a spinal injury... We should probably give him $20 million guaranteed!

(Just a little humor folks.)

I hope Fairley lives a LONG and happy life. But, I just can't help but think he scammed the Saints. His heart was healthy enough to hold the pen when he signed for millions. Then, he can't play. Just doesn't pass the smell test.

He was examined before signing the contract and was cleared. It was during the OTA exam when they found something new. Word is it was arrythmia which can creep up quickly and out of the blue.The smell is fine. The luck isn't.
