I think Mr. Unger will stay retired. His body has taken a lot of punishment over the years. I'm glad he chose his health as #1 priority.

Enjoy your retirement.

Did Watson retire to get out of contract obligations or was he on a 1 yr.

One year deal. If you retire with years left on your contract then the team you were signed with still owns your rights if you want to come back. Marshawn Lynch, for example, retired and when he came back the Seahawks traded him where he wanted to go.

Not that many viable TE's. A few then it falls off a cliff. They normally don't come around until 25-26 years old. Jimmy was a fluke. It rarely happens.

Watson can still play if he's in shape but we are good with Cook. Willing to bet he has the best year of his career under Brees. He will be wide open most of the time with Kamara and MT to cover.

Unfortunate for Ben.

He assumed he would stay retired & followed his doctor's orders.

Gave a thorough explanation and accepted his suspension.

Ben is a very respectful person. Wish him well on his return.

Probably 90% of whatever is on the NFL's Performance Enhancing Substances list has no material affect toward actually "enhancing performance". Many are simply substances that can possibly mask something else, but on their own can be beneficial in other ways.
