I think he will be a very solid addition. He is very instinctive and that’s one of if not the most important attribute of an ILB and also something that you really can’t teach someone. I expect him to develop well and probably be a pro bowler in the next few years

Well no shit, no one should be guaranteed their spot. I think that was one of the problems with Norvell. You would see no accountability nor repercussion for lack of production on the field. I know with the offensive line we had no one to turn to so you couldn’t expect much there, but once Haslam took the LT position there was no inclination that Harris could replace Clary, when Cason was constantly beat you didn’t see Gilchrist or Wright step in, for the first half of the season before DX came in and it was obvious Meachem was worthless he was still used like a #1 WR. I think that’s also some of what Mathews meant when he said the team was complacent, there was no real competition, you knew the depth chart before training camp. T’eo shouldn’t just be handed the starting job he needs to show he can play in this league. once he starts making plays and impacting games people won’t care about the catfish crap. There’s lots of worse off field situations in sports Kobe has won 2 championships after his rape scandal , Tiger Woods is back to his #1 ranking, Vick came back after the dog fighting scandal. All anyone really cares about is that you ball out when you’re on the field

Manti is already the best iLB in the roster that can play next to Butler. We have ourself a very good problem.
On a side note. I looked over our roster and we actually have a solid core oF star players and soon to be star players. In excited for this season.

Breaking news: Teo is wearing a blue shirt, grey back pack, and a new era cap. Jay Glazer just confirmed the hang nail is on his left ring finger.

Chiefs Nation sends our well-wishes. Get well soon gents.

I have a feeling Jahleel is going to be them all out in training camp and will be our starter until Taylor gets back, Addae is the man!
Louie Reyes • 6 days ago −
How about resigning Corey Lynch? The guy played solid last season and could help out until Taylor gets healthy.

I think it’s funny that you said make or “break”, since he is so fragile. ha ha Seriously, this kid has GOT to perform this season or he is officially off the island.

This is why I was raging at my iPhone when we selected Tourek Williams instead of Andre Ellington.
I’m hoping Mathews can finally stay healthy and put it all together. However, I doubt it happens. He’s talented, but he’s been suffering from injuries dating back his college days.
Lets home the UDFA Michael Hill can be a hidden gem for us.

jammer used to always come in and eat at the restaurant i worked at and he was always a chill dude. he has been one of my favorite players this past decade and his presence in the locker room will be missed if he doesnt get resigned. i hope TT inks him to a new contract!

Reason number 6 he can lay the wood. Jammer can hit. I have liked the idea of him at SS for a couple of years. CB changing to safety often struggle at first, it’s a big change. The same goes for gilcrest, who ever we pull in, get them started now so they can get some reps!
Brian Smith • 5 days ago −
Great article, i thought they should have done this last year. I really hope that management see this in him too. However, they seem to be thinking younger.
Love Jammer, he still is our best open field tackler, hope they bring him for one more!! Go Bolts
Sergio Quintero • 4 days ago −
Joe D’ made Cordy Glenn into a respectable LT, and took the bills from the worst Oline in the NFL to a top 10 line. Hope he enjoys challenge he’s got another one here.
PFF really is a big admirer of Dunlap scoring him the 15th best pass blocking OT in the NFL for 2012, but hearing the Eagles fans he’s no better than Mike Harris, what is the truth?, probably somewhere in between, and still a major upgrade over the historically bad and overmatched Harris.

I’d be lying if I said that didn’t make me chuckle. But I don’t want to sound negative, so, love you Te’o. You haven’t played a single down in the NFL, but I’m hoping really extra hard that you’re the super god ILB that we all know you are!!!

Wow, good to know TT is still getting after it. Please don’t let that guy leave. Take him to Rivers house, show his 20+ children off and say to Starks “PLEASE!!! THINK OF THE CHILDREN!!! YOU MUST PROTECT THIS MAN!!”

I like your optimism Ernie!
“Hopefully they all declare and the Chargers will get some good options with the last pick in the first round.”
That’s what I’m talking about!!!!!
JoseSD • 3 days ago −
Its pretty cool how the rookies get in quickly now especially with the rookie wage scale, the first rounders do still take a while waiting for the players around them sign to see where they’re pay is slotted but its nowhere near as bad remember how Michael Crabtree didn’t sign until after the regular season already started, there was talk of him re-entering the draft the next season. Glad those days are over

“If we see Sorensen during the year, then something went really bad.”
Or really good because we are 50 points up.. Lol.
