Say what you want about Hurney, but he know how to pick solid players from the drafts despite sometime making few bonehead moves with FA & what not. I'm not surprise Connor isn't going anywhere, 'cause some were saying he could be a starter one day & it look like that going to happend next season if he start playing better than Anderson.

Is there any way to know who these trade scenarios involved?

Regardless, I also feel like we got Connor at a bargain.
He's shown signs of promise and I look forward to this season.
That LB core could be very tough to run and pass on.

No, because "according to league sources" translates to "I'm making this up, because I don't get paid if I don't write something". Seriously, all of his stories are "according to league sources"...

good decision by the front office...although I'm somewhat surprised in what other teams saw in him... he has never played in his natural position and only had one memorable game for us.. translation five round pick offered

He's not the most perfect fit here but he would be very good as a ILB in a 3-4or a MLB in a 4-3. I'm sure that's where the interested teams wanted him as.

The fact that they've turned down trade offers is a good sign. It's nice to have a player with his work ethic and intelligence at LB.

I still want some competition brought in though. Around the 4th round I'd like to see a 1-2 LBs drafted. We don't have the same depth we used to. If Connor/Anderson gets injured we'll be weak.

Connor suffered an injury in college that scared people right before the draft. Good on us, that we knew he'd recover and flourish.

Cool, I didn't remember that... I know there was some concern about his speed...


He ran a faster 40 than Beason...

Connor was a steal in the draft. I'm sure he'll transition fine.

He blew out his ACL in his rookie season with us.

Considering Beason's past as a member of the 7th floor crew I bet he could hold his own.
