That's probably trading away two experienced veterans for two practice squad hopefuls.

The other part of the equation is that nobody will trade for them.  Poz is a good two down LB but that's like a dinosaur these days.  Lewis has never been consistent.

So, let's say you're the C.E.O. of a business with 52 employees. One of them.......we'll call him Lewis........is pulling down one of the highest salaries in your company. He shows up late for work every day, bad-mouths the company and complains about his job to anyone who'll listen, doesn't get his work done on time, and needs a bath. The chairman of your board of directors asks you why Lewis is still employed at your company. You reply that the company is far below budget on its salary expenses, so it can afford to keep him.
Question; What line of work will you pursue after you're fired?

Scouting department of the Jaguars?

In Topic: Blackmon back for 2015?

Since his suspension there has been very little said about the whole situation.  He got arrested again and Blackmon just went Dark after that.  There were rehab rumors but nothing really conclusive. 


Caldwell said he heard through a second hand source that blackmon is doing well and doing the right things.  So the million dollar question is what would have to happen for him to return to the team.  Yes he has to file to return but how long does that process take and how long if ever will the NFL rule on such a request.  Was Caldwell speaking doing the right things in his life or returning to the team?


Josh Gordons case on the other hand is clean cut.  He has seemed to mess up more than Blackmon but now is facing a one year ban while blackmon is banned perhaps forever. 


I just don't understand why the case is so quiet and why there is no definite answer is to if he plans on playing football again.

Thank you for proving my point by giving the historical exception. Teams don't put their stars at unnecessary risk at dime a dozen positions. They may get spot duty in key situations or due to injury. Paying Cobb 10-12 million and putting him back for punts is moronic. For proof look at the leaders in punt and kick return stats. Notice what is missing. Stars. Frankly, not putting your high paid stars in those situations and exposing them is coaching 101. That is the general rule. History doesn't lie.

Deion Sanders a hall of famer and maybe the best to ever play at his position.  He returned punts and kicks.  If a player is dangerous enough he will see the field.
