Turner is done unless he commits to getting back in shape. Got paid and looked like he gained 20lbs each year after signing that contract.

Yeah Turner just doesn’t have the love and desire. I don’t blame him. He got his money that sets him up for life. But I wouldn’t be interested in him if I was any team in the league at this point. Unless you just REALLY need help.

I didnt know Decastro had a bad ankle deal.....I need more infro. @Toomers what do you know?

Not that long ago he was thee young upcoming OG, then dallas drafted Martin......then Indy drafted Nelson.....and eagles Brooks caught fire and torn his achilles. Thus desastro became an after thought, still dont know his current status or level of play. I know MR. in on every deal has already checked in.

3 pros and cons to the Carolina Panthers pursuing David DeCastro (catcrave.com)

He is a two-time All-Pro and has six Pro Bowl selections to his name, with his highest Pro Football Focus grade coming in at a phenomenal 90.0 back in 2017.

DeCastro underwent surgery on his ankle before last season and has had issues with it for some time. He was still good enough in 2020 to earn a sixth consecutive Pro Bowl selection. But he's been contemplating his football future of late while having his ankle evaluated,

This has been a “rumored” outcome for DD for most of the off-season. Best I can tell is the Steelers don’t think he will be healthy enough to be good. Not sure how he made the Pro Bowl last year as the injury dropped his level of play dramatically. Add in that Decastro was considering retirement and 9M was too much to gamble on a player with little chance of being worth that much. He may need to sit out this year just to heal. That’s if he even wants to play anymore. 
 

  That being said, I don’t see Trai Turner being a suitable replacement. Best hope is he buys some time for their 3rd round G to come around. Hope this helps but it’s mostly from speculation and opinions from various writers.
