For sure. Sign him to a one year prove it deal, worst case he doesn’t workout here and he signs elsewhere after the season and we get some sort of comp pick in return.

Trai was a bum when he was here...  he strictly got reputation off of name-recognition and from his stature coming out of college.  To be as big and as talented as he was/is, he was one of the main guys letting Cam get beat up on all those years.

That being said, he is better than Reed, but thats a really low bar.  If he wants to come back on a dirt cheap deal and see how he does, that's up to him, but he isn't changing much.

Turner was fine on his first contract, he got that second deal and promptly stopped giving a fug.

If he truly wants to continue his career then he'll sign a "prove it" deal and play well...for at least that year or two.  If he is fat and happy with what he's already made he's done....stick a fork in him and please don't bring him back.

These types of guys should never get guaranteed money, hopefully FOs know this by now.

Honestly, I don't know. His motivation level seems questionable at absolute best these days and I think we're going to have a lot of young OL in the locker room. Not sure he's the best vet mentor for that type of room. If we're bringing back a former player on the OL I'd rather have Norwell.

Has Norwell been released?

Seasonal honors? He barely played half the season last year 😳

Norwell was overpaid on his last contract but if anybody's "disappeared", it's Turner.

Which is why I said up until last year. Thanks for playing bud.

A lot of OL just keep going back to the Pro Bowl off name recognition alone. You really thought Trai deserved a Pro Bowl nod his last year with us? That was a joke. If he was a legit Pro Bowl caliber player we wouldn't have traded him for a LT who was already reportedly mulling retirement.

Norwell has been the better OG for awhile now. He's not the elite OG the Jags paid him to be and that's why he got released, but he's a serviceable starting OG. Trai just seems to have mailed it in and he's been fat as poo for years now.

This is viable. I know that is how it was for Tolbert for a while, just going on a couple of good seasons. But claiming to know his weight being over 360, you are reaching dude.

Norwell has been just as bad or mediocre as Trai, which is why he is just as unemployed.

    • From the article... Coach Matt Rhule said he wasn’t concerned with Thomas’ drops. (cough) bullsh-t (cough)
    • Quoting from today's presser via The Athletic... “We have purposely taken the approach of developing Sam – and all of our quarterbacks this spring – as a drop-back passer and put a lot on them,” said Rhule, the Panthers’ second-year coach. “More than most teams will probably do with a quarterback – more than probably the coaches are comfortable with. “But for me it’s about just putting so much on those guys — not giving them a bunch of easy plays where they can go out and feel confident and look good,” Rhule added. “Our defense is giving us a lot of different looks. So I want to stretch those guys and see what they do well and then we can be more targeted in training camp and into the season.” The first part of that statement interests me, specifically the part about developing their quarterbacks as "drop back passers". Neither Bridgewater nor Darnold would rightly be seen as big run threats (neither are statues either, but still). And of course, the team passed on drafting a quarterback who was. It makes me wonder if Rhule and/or Brady aren't necessarily concerned with superior athleticism at the quarterback position. You'll note he talks a lot about mental preparation here, but physical...not so much. Arguing against that idea though is the fact that the team seems extremely interested in athleticism at pretty much every other position. With that said though, there are plenty of successful teams whose quarterbacks aren't amazing athletes (including the one that captured last year's Super Bowl trophy). So is this an indicator of Rhule's QB philosophy or just an emphasis they have right now?
