Matt Paradis

Recommended Posts

Elway (who as a GM I think is a tool) had concerns...should we?  What are the risks here??

 

Quote

Paradis has started for the Broncos since their Super Bowl-winning season in 2015, but he finished last year on injured reserve after breaking his fibula. Denver general manager John Elway said the team had “real concerns” about Paradis’ recovery, which freed Carolina to sign him to a three-year contract.

Well John Elway's personnel decisions have been pretty suspect. This is probably good news.

Bones usually heal up pretty good. If there are lingering health concerns with him it's probably more likely to do with that hip surgery.

This is true

But watching Olsen the last few seasons keeps me a little nervous with Paradis

Feet are a bitch....that fifth metatarsal bone is easy to break depending one where you break it. its also very slow healing.

Paradis is gonna be fine.  That was Elways reaction when he was getting heat from his local media for letting him walk.  After the panthers got him for a good price he got backlash from the local beat writers.

Nothing but every season has shown how poorly Elway has performed at personnel decisions. Since he took the reins of the Broncos organization it has been a downward slide, only spotted by the Super Bowl win which was built on the best picks of previous leadership and grabbing Peyton Manning for his farewell victory lap/on field coaching show.

Elway is an arrogant, horse-faced jerk who thankfully has been wrong way more that he has been right. The fact that he made that call on Paradis actually makes me feel a bit more confident that we did the right thing.

Not worried. I got to ride Matt around on a golf cart at a golf outing a couple of months ago. Great guy, down to earth, not worried about the rehab and happy to be here. H may have some rust but the knowledge and smarts doesn't go away. He'll be fine.

Curious how much action he sees in training camp and the preseason. Did he take a practice rep in minicamp? I seem to remember him not even suiting up
