Couple of observations, waiver claims used to mean we inherit the contract/cap hit from previous team. Did that change in the new CBA? Once they clear waivers is where you get the deals. Would be curious to see cap hit but doubt it is more than a blip. But being #1 on waiver wire means you have to pass up a lot of players due to contract structure.

Also, at the risk of getting slammed..... I saw Hayden make some good plays in the first half, early 2nd half of preseason game 2.



Hayden has steadily gotten better to be fair, but I have no interest in keeping him.

Darin Gantt said we will pay him approx 700k if he plays 16 games.
Salary/Bonus hits are being toted by Seahawks and Niners.

Excellent pickup. Like someone said, it's a very, very, very, very, very low risk-high reward type signing.

Now pick-up a corner, and I'll be content with the team going into this season.

Just some tidbits on the guy. Seems to be a good fit for Rivera's d-line.

You and everyone else said the same thing. It doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure it out. I said the same thing for the past 2 months and said we needed to pick up Balmer earlier today. Apparently Hurney agrees.

The truth is that it takes at least a half a season for rookies to get it together. So the reality is that the second half of the season we should be improved on the line but the first half..... it is going to get ugly.

All they need to do is sign Fat Pat, or Big Boned Brendan and I'll be satisfied.

If he doesn't work out, we cut him. No harm done. Don't see the problem.

We have a lot of hometown players, maybe him and Anderson know each other. Since they're from the same town.
