I've heard nary a word of any interest in him. The kid wants to play but it is not in his best interest. I hope no one signs him for his own good.

Agreed. Too bad- similar to the early loss of Nick Collins. Both possibles for the HOF (emphasis on "possibles", strong edge to Collins). Same thing with Finley. Or Sharpe. Young men lost before they could finish very, very promising careers.

I'll give you Sharpe and Collins.

Shield and Finley...................lucky to get a sniff of Packer HOF. They were good, but not that good, even if they had lasted 10 years each.

JMHO.................but what do I know.  :-X
