odd man out of the rotation? Yes

Off the team? no way

Agreed.

He could conceivably have some trade value though if the team decided Clowney wasn't just a preseason star.

Rivera's not necessarily going to be as attached to him as he might otherwise be.

for a 5th rounder? possibly? I dont think its worth it tho to trade him for a practice squader

Plus, it's still early in camp- everyone is going to be the odd man out at some point with 100 guys on the field and only 22 positions.

Depends on just how down Rivera might be on his performance.

If, say, he were down enough to cut him, then a fifth rounder is better than nothing.

That's farfetched, mind you, but not impossible.

That would solve the #11 problem.

But really I like LaFell. Although he had some drops last year he also showed some promise. He's young and I expect him to make the team.

a 3rd round receiver being cut in his second year when he had decent numbers with clausen last year? aint happening.

At least wait until we see some preseason games before you start ousting the guy. He's been one of our most promising WR's in the past 6 years. He deserves better than that imo.

    •     Now don't take this the wrong way, but....are you two nuts? Now, if the kid didn't have those injury issues, maybe I can get on board. But man, those petite WRs with injury issues in college? Those guys scare the living poo outta me.   Now get me a Ross clone and I'm on board. Someone for the slot that could actually, you know, scare a Defense. Now that would tickle my giddy like nobodies bidness.
    • IMO, it is obvious, to me anyhow, that the kid has matured. He has taken heat for standing up for what he believes, and has done it the right way. No snarky comments to the press. Keeping his head down, and working toward a goal. He has brought to light injustices not only in our country, but in others as well. His foundation just contributed over a million and a half dollars to the Simolian relief effort.   All that is admirable to be sure. And he can play football as well, or better, than enough QBs to earn himself a shot at a job.   It is not the football side of his life that is keeping him off teams. Almost every team hates distractions. It is just how it is. And Kaep is a walking distraction at this point in time.   I would like to add that another thought could be that at this point in FA, no one is being signed. OK, maybe a better way to put that is, FA spending has slowed considerably.   If teams head to Training Camp and he is still unemployed. Then I may start believing in conspiracies.
    • lol lol lol fahey watched every snap of every game and graded the quarterbacks as he saw it. kaepernick is a fine game manager who was let down repeatedly by perhaps the shittiest set of skill position players in the league and oh yeah he can run like the wind. you've got to be pretty stupid to think this is anything but a quarterback starved league blackballing a serviceable quarterback all because he had the audamndacity to protest racism in america and tbh i've not seen one post itt that would cause me to even begin to question that.
