We have had 6 day 1 or 2 d-line picks in the last 14 years. Dewayne White in 2003 would make 7 in 15 years.

It often has been awful, though. Now it's not. That's the point. Not complicated for anyone but Bootz. Since the Moss/Stallworth era, it's been a collection of guys like Brandon Tate, the corpse of Deion Branch, the rotting corpse of Chad Johnson, the double-rotting corpse of Reggie Wayne, Brandon Lloyd, Kembrell Thompkins, Branon LaFell, Keshawn Martin, Aaron Dobson.

They had Welker and then Edelman doing Patriots things, racking up short yardage completions, but they haven't had anyone REMOTELY as dynamic on the perimeter as Kenny Britt or as physical as Jordan Matthews. Defenses will have to respect those guys. I'm not sure I can make it any clearer.

He had his visit, and it reportedly did NOT go too well. Brown supposedly grilled him on the protest.

I was talking about this with a friend RE: Kap and the Seahawks, but why would you even have him in the building if you didn't already know what his intentions were with the protests, and were fine with that one way or the other? It's not like the Bengals in particular would have been called out for not signing him like they are now.

It starts to sound like a jackass owner bringing a player in under false pretenses so he can wag a finger at him. That's a really bad look, especially when that owner is noted POS Mike Brown.

I agree. Disagree all you want, but show some integrity.

I don't know what was said between Kap and the Seahawks or Reid and Bengals so I won't speculate on the veracity of the discussions regarding protests and I 100% agree any discussions should be done in a professional manner.

But that said, NFL teams are well within their right as potential employers to vet this question out with these specific players. These players (Kap, Reid) have made the decision to protest on gameday while wearing the team uniform. Those actions reflect on the team regardless of what anybody thinks of the cause or protest itself.

Both Kap and Reid have made public statements they don't intend to continue kneeling with whatever new/next team. As a potential team interested in their services I'd certainly ask what their plans were. I'd let them we support them advocating for their causes and even provide assistance as we do with all of our players. However I'd ensure there was clarity on what plans/actions they intended while they were wearing the uniform on gameday.

Not just on game day, but any time they are representing the team in any official or non-official event (ie wearing their team jersey or in any other way to appear to be representing the team).
