Aaron Kampman?

24 posts in this topic

10 year vet Aaron Kampman was released by the Jaguars today.

Any chance we bring him in for depth and leadership? I feel like we could use another older guy to help out with our younger defensive linemen.

this might be the first time I've seen one of these threads and thought "hmmmm.....maybe"

csx, if I could pie or like you would have gotten one or the other. I do agree that this may be one of those worth looking into.

Apparently he's injured often...Why would we want him?

Well obviously don't sign him if he's currently injured. But if he's healthy I think he could contribute on the field backing up Charles Johnson and he could definitely be important to have in the locker room.

We lack defensive captains. This team is young and our defensive line is especially young.

The Jaguars released the veteran pass rusher Thursday, five days before the start of a mandatory, three-day minicamp.

Kampman has missed 28 games over the last three seasons while playing for Jacksonville and Green Bay, including 13 last year. He had 57 tackles and four sacks in 11 games during his two seasons with the Jaguars.

He sat out all of organized team activities last month while recovering from a second surgery on his right knee.

Do not want. Rather have Carter over this guy. Just my opinion though.

Yeah in that case I would pass on him. We need to be injury free this season.

Veteran leadership on this defense is essential though, and I don't know if we have it yet.

    • My worry isn't coming off the bench vs starting, it is Clifford playing him PERIOD. Clifford is absolutely terrible about giving young guys the burn they need to develop. Even when you had guys like Bismack looking like they were on the verge of figuring things out and averaging some great numbers per minute, Clifford wouldn't know what to do with them. Granted we haven't always had the best of young or rookie talent around here but NOTHING Cliff has done in his time here tells me he knows WTF to do with a player that isn't a 5 year vet. And seriously.. nothing against the MAN, he seems like a great person, but I'm 1000% done with the MKG experiment. He has taken up a roster spot long enough. Ill take someone that plays 3/4 of his defense and can actually put the ball in the bucket once in a while. Or, ya know, get the other team to play A LITTLE defense on them. His presence has gotten the idiot gm to overlook several FAR BETTER prospects over the years just because we don't want to admit he is a total BUST for where he was drafted. WAY TOOO MUCH EGO is wrapped up between the front office and MKG and its choking the life out of this franchise at times.
    • Na, he'll probably get picked in next years Draft.  Next years Draft is so bad, they even have Pinson getting Drafted
    • I keep seeing this and totally disagree.  Moderation in unhealthy things is not key. Moderation in processed meats is the same as moderation in cigarattes. Both could ultimately give you cancer and kill you. Same with dairy. Dairy is closely associated with prostate cancer due to the estrogen in milk, even skim milk.
