Quentin Jammer

Recommended Posts

I am not one to normally jump on every player that hits the market (or in this case soon to hit the market)

 

I would like opinions on QJ. 

 

Rivera and Wilks know him well and he might be a good fit for us.  I know the article mentions Washington but who knows maybe the SD-Carolina pipeline is alive and well.

 

Thoughts?

I would be very happy with QJ.  He's getting up there in age, but he's a definite upgrade over our existing corners.

Would rather give our young guys a shot, Jammer was decent a few years ago but doesn't really give us much now.

I agree Carolina-Chuck.  Might be a decent fit at safety.  I mentioned this with the Charles Woodson thread but Rod Woodson prolonged his career by switching to safety.    

 

What I do like is experience.  Someone who can mentor our young CBs even if he does play safety.  We just don't have that experience on the team since Chris Gamble left.

i see people say this about players already on the team quite often and i've even said so myself in the past, but i'm more concerned with getting the best players on the field and winning than just seeing what some unknown commodities with promise have.

 

i'm more interested with winning than i am appeasing my curiousity re: young players.

 

if he's affordable and he can make us better....go get him. if the young guys can't beat him for a spot, move along.

At an affordable price he would be invaluable as a mentor.  As I stated earlier. We don't have that full time starter that can mentor our young DBs. 

Our young DB will have to learn by Trial by Fire.  

 

Rather a good DB with some experience to lead them.  Even if is from a nickel or dime position.

If anyone knows Jammer it is Rivera.

I would think he would be an upgrade over Norman or Florence but honestly I can only remember watching him three years ago at the latest. I would think Norman plays similar to a Jammer(sort of) and developing a young guy with potential and experiencing live bullets is a push in terms of the impact Jammer will bring (with his current skills) over Developing a young guy.

So in this case you err toward not spending.

Like most available guys on the market at need positions(CB!) there must be a huge red flag on his diminished skills or he is demanding too much money. If its the Jammer I remember a few years ago then yes..but im guessing he is not the same guy today.

In my opinion, we basically operated as a farm team for the last 3-5 years, possibly more...  So, the days of "we don't need to sign X let Y develop," are over.  You still draft talent that you expect to contribute immediately, but you don't count on every pick in rounds 3-7 to be starters like we did under Hurney.

 

Taking all that into consideration, we have plenty of homegrown talent already developed on this team.  It's now time to add the much needed complimentary pieces to complete the process and put us in a position to compete for a Super Bowl NOW.

Thought about making this thread myself. Would love if we brought in Jammer. I wouldn't mind him and Florence starting while our younger corners sat back a season and learned.
