Yeah, Floyd does nothing for me.

 

Is anyone else irritated how last year when our QB has a fluke injury our best option is Michael Vick and this year Romo, Cutler, Fitzpatrick, and Kapernick (among others) are all available?

 

Screw you Football Gods!

Anyone have interest in WR Eric Decker? He was released this morning because he didn't fit the Jets' plans of losing as many games as possible this season. 

 

If he were signed, IMO he'd be the best WR on roster. He was extremely durable and consistent from 2012-2015.

To me it doesn't hurt to sign him to a incentive laden contract.  He has the chance to be a great asset to the team if he can stay healthy.

Agreed. I'm not sure what it would take to sign him, but there is room on the roster for a #1/#2 type WR.

 

The investment in Floyd is minimal, and it's certainly not guaranteed he'll make the roster out of training camp. I'm also already convinced Treadwell is a bust. 

 

Decker - Diggs - Thielen is a pretty good WR group.

I think I'd rather go for Jeremy Maclin. He can stretch the field, which this team is lacking.

Didn't know Maclin was released. He's another very intriguing name. Much more intriguing than Floyd.

Shocker. Floyd fails an alcohol test 5 days before mandatory testing ends....claims it was Kombucha. From what I read, he'd have to have had something around 150-380 ounces in an hour to test that high, depending on the alcohol content.....seems....doubtful.

I don't know, it is a site to discuss sports, not airline safety.....maybe we should take it less seriously?

Yeah, sad really.
So much to lose, and so close to the end of house arrest, and he feels he has to have a drink.
Obviously don't know him, but it appears he clearly has a problem.
Hope he is able to get some help before it turns tragic.

And considering he's on house arrest, a friend or family member almost certainly had to get it for him.

 

That person needs to be exorcised from his life.
