Hardy's draft position was a mistake, IMO. He was rumored to have an attitude problem and was uncoachable. Had he come out a year earlier I believe he was one of the top ranked DE's.

However, Brown looks to be very solid but I don't want to see up and comers lose reps to short term vets in what's looking like a relatively non competitve season. I'd just assume see the young guys get as many reps as possible.

While he's certainly the exception, just remember than James Harrison went undrafted altogether.

I just hope we are hovering over any Steeler or Packer cuts. They seem to know how to draft and acquire talent.

Packer WRs- absolutely.

Steeler offensive players?? Not so much.

As for defense- unless their players are cut because they are playing in the wrong scheme and we think they translate better to a 4-3, we wouldn't exactly want their defensive players since, they play a 3-4 not a 4-3 and many positions don't translate that well.

Still do not understand why we didn't pull the trigger.

Read in one of the comments to the article that he was wanting $5+ per year. For that price, I can understand why we did not make a move for him.

He is nowhere near worth that price.

Interested in seeing the terms of the deal.

The Falcons may cut a decent cb after signing Hayden

I would imagine Alex Brown would start over Greg Hardy if he were signed. Hell, it might let us release Everette Brown rather than just bury him.


I think they would use him more for run defense and turn Hardy loose on passing downs
