With a signing bonus like that he will be given a chance to replace Wilkins. Competition is a good thing and with all the interest in him, before he signed with the Colts, I doubt he would last long on the Practice Squad.
I agree. They should have been able to check his MRI's, listened to him regarding how he feels, sat down and discussed it, agreed on a contract with incentives based on playing time, and let us know by now. Amateurs!!
Thanks CBFL. Great stuff.
What would also be very interesting, is to see the age breakout of those that returned, and those that didn't. And in general, the age breakout of recovery time periods.
Not asking you to go digging, just a comment.
Overall, OL looks to be 2nd worst RTS%, which was thinking given the weight factor.
In general about our situation, like I said earlier this week, I just don't like the thought of signing Fisher unless it's very conditional around guarantees (and that's just part of the equation). It's just a tough situation all around. The FO has to considering 1) the pure need, and 2) the financial impact when thinking about his recovery time and chances of playing again. Given his age and the RTS %, this makes me like Fisher even less. It's likely great leverage for Leno.
