Just read this page, can someone go through and compile the bullet points of the first 444 pages for me? Thanks.

People getting their hopes up for: (in order) Muhummad Wilkerson, Trumaine Johnson, Allen Robinson, Jimmy Graham, Kyle Fuller, Tramon Williams, Davon House, Dez Bryant, Eric Reid, Navarro Bowman.

Also believe Norm fired Gute in this thread.

Is it bad the only one I wanted was Fuller lol

 

And Gute needs to be fired. Dude already drafted a bust who refuses to play football.

Imagine a roulette wheel where red is knee injury, black is PED suspension, and green is a complete season.

What's wrong with Bowman, why hasn't any team signed him yet?

Injuries.

There is also ILB Karlos Dansby... while he's older, he has stayed surprisingly healthy and has missed very few games. As well has played under Pettine in two seasons when both were with the Browns.

No team forum has a 100 page thread about him yet

You must know him personally to make that statement. What brought him from having a better year (statistically) than Jake Ryan in 10 games last year in Oakland to being "done?"

Most people in the know are a bit worried that Burks won't be able to replace Ryan's ability to take on guards on running plays up the middle.  That is really what signing a Bowman or Cushing would do.  250 to 300 snaps?  Burks doesn't have the size to even try, so he'll have to utilize his speed to get around those blocks.  

What is evident is how much he will improve the team speed in the middle of the defense.  His sideline to sideline work is something we haven't seen since Nick Barnett.

If you go on to read the rest of his thread, he states that as soon as the starting DL plays more in front of him he should be protected from some of those inside runs.

Finally got to see Burks in action. Initial impression - outside the speed (?) - thats one solid dude.
I mean - he's just.....thick.  He'll be on a bit of a learning curve for awhile.....but I think we'll all be pleased.

Obviously he's not Khalil Mack but the Jags seem to have a problem on their hands with Dante Fowler. Just got in a fight with Yannick this week and suspended for a week. Clearly he is frustrated in Jacksonville. Jags might give him away rather cheap (late mid-round pick or so). Wouldn't be a bad consolation prize.

Be aware that his contract expires after this season.
