I'd be really surprised if any team offered him a contract with any considerable guaranteed money cause his injury history. I hope he can stay healthy next year.

His knees and turf don't work.

The guy puts together a good half of a season after recovering from another injury, and suddenly teams are lining up to give him money. I don't get it.


You just answered your own question. BTW...he wasn't just good...he was VERY good. He was scoring about 80 yards and a TD a game. That is ELITE production.

Well worth the risk.

I am not sold on him and if he walks so be it. He came in late in the season when we were eliminated and looked like a guy auditioning for a roster spot when the rest of the team had clearly given up.

He was fresh and healthy and performed well but there is no way I'd want to give him a long term deal this year. With the number of surgeries he has had you have to eliminate any cold weather or turf teams from consideration and having a player that is only available 8 weeks a year just doesn't fit the NFL model.

I agree.

He has had 4 surgeries on one knee for those who didn't know. The Rams cut him around 3rd week of preseason and until he joined the Chargers he was trying to get healthy, thats was a long time to sit out. In preseason and camp he practiced like one day, every other day he was sidelined.

This is the guy that beat out Jeremy Maclin as freshmen, only to get injured. It's a shame, this guy could have been amazing.

In all fairness, he is much more talented than Robinson ever was.

I would be very happy for the Browns to sign him, but I don't see it happening since they just signed Nelson. Plus, unless the Browns overpaid, I'm sure San Diego would match any offer assuming it was a reasonable one.
