Matt Araiza

If teams are willing to sign "problem players" - you would think that someone would be snatching him up immediately.

 

Actually - the Buffalo Bills should re-sign him since they dumped him before the investigation in to the charges was complete.

 

THAT would be "pay back"!!  

 

They should also offer "back pay" - in my humble opinion.

 

If they don't - why don't the Colts sign him - and - trade Rigaberto Sanchez and his salary for a younger player.

UPDATE FROM NFL.com:

 

P Matt Araiza is being hosted for a workout on Wednesday by the New York Jets, NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported. Araiza, a 2022 sixth-round pick, was waived by the Buffalo Bills last August after he was accused of participating in a gang rape while at San Diego State. The punter did not play last season. The workout comes one week after San Diego State said an internal investigation found no wrongdoing by Araiza in the alleged assault at an off-campus party in October 2021. The San Diego County District Attorney's Office said last December that no charges would be filed against Araiza or any of his former Aztec teammates who were also accused in the reported assault.

If the Colts sign him why should any team trade for Sanchez? Just wait for him to be released  and work their own deal..

Excellent point.

 

But - a team who desperately NEEDS a punter before the final cut down - might be willing to work a deal.

I think he probably found a home with the Jets. They seem to be on an upward trend with what they have done over the last couple of years.

I thought the same thing.  

 

The Jets have spent the off season significantly upgrading at a number of positions.  They may be the most improved team in the AFC East.

    • I agree. Grover is a key piece for our D line. Him MPJ and Kenny would be my priorities. 
    • Adonai Mitchell 1.1% drop rate. Wow!!! Ladd McConkey runs great routes.       Based on this, guys, Brian Thomas Jr. at #15, I will not complain whatsoever  
    • I accept this analysis as an upgrade to instant analysis that was a few days after the draft. There's a year of information to go off of now, and it's the first major step to knowing who is more or less likely to be a hit or a bust in the NFL. I acknowledged that a lot of our 2023 draft class had injury issues. However, that doesn't mean you can say they would be a hit if they weren't injured, it just means you don't know and their development is pushed down the line. For some, it could mean they hit next year, for others, it could mean Ballard drafts competition to battle them for their spot on the team.    Right now, it's a below average draft class with 1 year of sample size. That can change. It does depend a lot on how Richardson does. However, I will stick with what I said earlier that our draft classes seem to get injured more than any other team. It could be due to bad luck or the number of players we draft every year, or it could be due to Ballard avoiding injury concerns when drafting players. It seems to be a pattern.
    • Being from Jersey, very hard to believe the Jets didn't make the list. Their fan base is WASTED before they enter the stadium! And they leave by halftime to sober up to be able drive home! 
    • Let’s be real last years draft class is going to come down to how Richardson does.  You can’t give any kind of realistic grade when the guy who the whole draft class is going to be judged on only played five games and only finished one of them.  The Colts draft class last year grade is incomplete until we know more about Richardson.
