    Is going to be waived/injured reserve. Would be a slick move putting in a claim for him! Thoughts?

    Lol...well...one could say most guys in the nfl have brain issues! The knee isn't a huge deal...6-8 weeks of rehab...and yeah, he's probably better than our back ups.

    Trestman and our present locker room seem to be able to handle some of these higher risk guys. It all comes down to the risk/reward factor. Only Emery and Trestman would know if this particular guy is worth a shot. If they are okay with taking a chance on a player (this guy or anyone) then I trust their judgement.

    I wanted him since the draft. I would take him.

    I'd say it's worth a shot.

    I really wanted Phil to sign him as UDFA until I found out about his character issues and drug problems. Just stay away from him, we don't need that kind of idiot in our locker room.

    Is this the same he's better then our backups as Christian Jones was going to be a surefire to make this team? He's a UDFA headcase; and if he was as good as you think GB wouldn't risk putting him out there; you won't see the Bears putting Wilson out there to be snagged up like that.

    Agree 100%. Just say no. This guy is a problem and I was actually HAPPY when the Packers picked him up.
