Props to him. He's under the weight he was at when he was drafted.

I'd love for him to come back and be a pro bowl player.

I don't understand all the talk surrounding him. If he sucked 3 years ago, what makes you think he's going to be any better after he's been away from football so long?

Kudos to him. Hopefully the guy can keep it together and restore his career.

Because he had mad potential. The only thing holding him back was immaturity, laziness and being in a terrible organization. Now fast forward 4 years later and he seems to have lost the laziness and immaturity and skys the limit for him now.

Not only that but he is the poster child for low risk/high reward player. A team could sign him for the vet minimum for a QB with tons of upside that is only 27 years old.

Here, let me put it this way. Brandon Weeden was a 1st round pick and hes 30 years old (or close to it) now if you are a NFL GM. What is more appealing, signing Brandon Weeden to 7 million after drafting him in the 1st round, or getting a new, improved Jamarcus Russell with tons of upside (pass 70 yds on one knee) for pennies?.

    • Stop me if you've heard this one... Once upon a time the USA provided weapons to "Freedom Fighter's" opposed to the Soviet Union's illegal invasion of Afghanistan. FYI:  The war drained huge amounts of life and treasure in a futile attempt to defeat a elusive resistance.  After ten years the Soviets concluded they were on a fool's errand and withdrew in humiliation.  Many believe the war hastened the fall of USSR.  I wonder if there is any lesson to be learned here for those in Washington D.C.?
    • TE George Kittle is one of those TEs not many are talking much about. He comes from the underperforming Iowa team that appears to look like they won't be worthwile for a long while, and just doesn't pop out very much in this loaded TE class. However, his Pro Day turned some heads. George Kettle may not be the guy you immediately see, but he's arguably the 2nd best blocking TE in this class. He can also catch, and has shown the ability to be a threat as a pass catcher. His real scary stuff comes with his amazing redzone performances.  Iowa may have hindered his potential, but he definitely has it. Some extra information concerning this TE: http://www.desmoinesregister.com/story/sports/college/columnists/chad-leistikow/2017/03/28/george-kittle-nfl-draft-profile-improving-pro-day-hawkeyes/99724056/ Sounds like a solid TE who can be something in the NFL with some work.
