Because one circuit court (8th) would have then (if they do so) vacated an arbitration award from the NFL, and another circuit court has confirmed an award for the NFL in an arbitrated case. It one of the main responsibilities of the Supreme Court. Either the CBA protects the sovereignty of the NFL in its punitive actions decided by an agreed upon binding process, or it does not. It can't be both. That's where the Supreme Court comes into play.
Kelly is slightly bigger, has longer arms, moves better, has more range. He is a better blocker in both phases right now.
What does Martin do as well or better than Kelly?
Martin is probably good enough, and another combo of first/second round picks with Martin in the second would have been fine, most likely. But Kelly is the superior prospect.
Whoa! You went way too far Smonroe.
Morrison came off of major injury this year. Watch his 2013 and more importantly 2014 tape to see what he's really about. This year he was visibly heavier and slower due to injury. At his peak he was a lean fast MLB in more of the Freddie Keiaho or Cato June type. My point is he was a zone guy with good speed and sure tackler. Our scheme is totally different. I can't say whether he will accel or get exposed in our man heavy scheme. Only time will tell. But at his peak he was a much faster ILB/MLB than we've had in awhile.
Definitely, my grandfather lived in Baltimore for a while and grew up watching him. He still pulled for Indy but always referred to them as Baltimore. I wasn't allowed to say the name Irsay in my house. The game sure has changed. I wish I could go back in time when players didn't get flagged for breathing on a player and defenses were actually feared by offenses.
