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!!
