Trai Turner pushing Eric Berry to join the Panthers

Recommended Posts

The only thing Boston was good for was making videos with Sir Purr for the in-game 'entertainment'.

If only he were a free safety......

In his prime I would have no problem playing him as a FS, but too much uncertainty now. Those achilles injuries are hard to recover from.

Yeah, pre-Achilles Berry damn sure wouldn't be on the open market like this for long, either. It is a damn shame that injury happened. He was an unbelievable player.

yea man that game on opening night vs the Patriots in 2017 was an amazing game, he was all over Gronk. Then the achilles happened.

Berry was set to get $12.4 mil but was cut instead because he cannot perform with the nagging injuries that plague him now especially with his heel problems.

 He’s got what’s called a Haglund’s deformity in that Achilles. That’s a bone spur that basically digs into the Achilles.

If he has plans surgery to correct this then maybe we can bring him in and go from there.

He's only 29, on a 1-2 year deal paired with Reid you can't ask for too much of a better back end duo. Given injury concerns and the market should come at a modest cost if we were to inquire I'd imagine. I would still like to see us draft another FS, as I'm not sold on Gaulden, but Reid, Berry, Gualden, Rookie / Jones I would not be mad about it. 

i also wouldn't be mad to see Boston return and FINALLY be the FS, a lot of his stint here was at the SS, and IMO a little out of his skill set. Can't deny he created INT's while he was here. Just wan't great at run support. 

boston is horrible in space and needs to not be a free safety anywhere in the league

I'll take "Things I never wanted to think about" for a hundred, Alex.

Well he did have cancer, so that is a large chunk of that.  I think the other is from him tearing his Achilles.

That was in 2014. The Achilles tear was in the first game of 2017, and he sat out most of 2018 with a heel injury which was related to a bone spur on the Achilles.

From what I’ve heard, Berry’s injury isn’t getting better unless he gets surgery which he won’t do.  No point in signing him

He was getting up to speed last season towards the end for the chiefs, that injury is a big concern seeing as the top two other fa we signed are also coming off injury. Still would like the move if it’s cheap, but there’s still haha, Phillips, and Boston our there.

and people boo booing on Boston must have not watch his last two seasons, he’s progressed mightily since his departure from here

Doesn't make any sense. Eric Reid is the most box SS in the league and needs a free flowing FS for this to work. 

On their draft profiles, Reid was listed as a FS and Berry a SS.

Berry also ran a 4.47 to Reid's 4.53.

Rivera has talked about the importance of the safeties in our defense being interchangeable. LEMME DREAM!

Love the man but like it's been said we need an althetic young free safety. 

I could see a trade down for adderley IF the OT and DE prospects we like are gone.

    • There was no sex trafficking going on...100% fake news. Who are you saying makes these "women think this is the only thing they can do"?  You do realize the place was run by some middle aged women, right? Do you care about "the truth"?  Doesn't appear to be the case... https://nypost.com/2019/04/12/prosecutors-concede-no-human-trafficking-in-kraft-spa-case/  
    • Where to begin.... So I like that we picked up with Jon clearly having killing Dany on his mind from the beginning of the episode until he finally did it. I love that tortured look of knowing what must be done because it is right and utterly refusing to accept it until the moment it is done because of his love for her. Great acting sold all of that well. The first half was super tense because of it. Also the visual of the throne being melted and what that represented for the entirety of the series. Just a great scene. Then we move along to the time jump (which we know is a few weeks thanks to Tyrion's monologue). I liked that whole scene as well...what I DIDN'T like was treating Jon the way they did. The Unsullied basically strong-armed them into exiling the actual hero of Westeros. He legitimately saved almost every major character and/or their people at some point in this show and certainly saved the entirety of the North by killing Dany. And to top that off, he's a better person than pretty much anybody at this point. And for his trouble, he gets exiled. Now, because he is a good man, he is exiled to go be with people who also love and adore and follow him. So while it is BS, at least it's not a true punishment beyond his choice in the matter being taken. I mean, he did CHOOSE to go to The Wall the first time around to prove himself. But dammit, he should be praised the land over for what he did. Everybody would be bending the knee to a genocidal maniac or be slaughtered by a genocidal maniac were it not for him. Everybody's roles in the new Six Kingdoms, sure. It is fitting. Sure, Bran becoming king is a tad unexpected. But the way he acted about Tyrion proposing it ("why do you think I came all this way?"). I mean, WHAT?! At no point did you ever suggest that the throne was your endgame but suddenly, once Jon kills Dany, you're all about being the king? The ending montage was cool. Sansa going from scared little bird to the Queen in the North is awesome. Arya doing her own thing under the Stark banner is cool (goes from feeling like she'll never fit into her family because she didn't want to be a lady, to renouncing her name to become a Faceless woMan, to reclaiming her name and finding her place within the family, just a great character arc). Jon being treated as basically the king of the Wildlings is awesome. Do wish we knew how much time had passed that they could rebuild the castle in King's Landing so quickly. Or repair Winterfell such that the great hall was so pristine. Or know if they fixed the gap in the Wall that the Night King came through or if they leave it as there are no longer any White Walkers and no threat North of the wall that we know of. I guess I am satisfied in the ending....but it left a bad taste in my mouth about Jon. I felt for him because it's almost a cautionary tale of what happens to good men who remain good. They end up eventually punished for doing the right thing.
