    Wow...that means our secondary is really depleted. I hope he can be half of what he was supposed to be and I hope they're paying him about 10% of what he was previously paid.

    Nothing personal against him but I would prefer to leave the players we got rid of off our roster. Whether it was ability or attitude...they wern't getting it done. McKenzie needs to realize he's just filling a position. Sharper and Vilma run the defense. We don't need a veteran coming in and trying to take over. I hope he's just happy to play and plays better than before.

    I always thought he was a good player. I was actually surprised when we cut him unless he was making too much money. I think it's a good pickup since our secondary is so depleted. We lost most of our DB's last year as well. Must be a tough position.

    It was neither ability nor attitude, he was by far our best CB last season and not a problem in the locker room. It was strictly a injury/financial decision.

    Welcome back Mike. We need you.

    I am pretty sure both Torrance and Gay are both out for the season. Torrance was put on IR. Not sure about Gay but I heard it was a torn hamstring.

    Torrance is out for the season. They just say "shoulder injury". Must have torn something. It seemed like a freak accident just pushing the receiver. Man, we gotta stop losing DBs.

    miscommunication with my nephew on Gay being injured badly

    He just had a slightly strained hammy as he is practicing this week.

    He's paying off tonight. Glad to have him back.
