In a day and age where most teams dont have 1 FB, were going to carry 2? I dont see it. right now we dont need the savings, but were not going to cut a 4th rounder and i really dont think were done shopping.
I had no idea who this guy was before Saturday but watching his highlights I am all like :ww: If this means the end of Leach I'll be sorry to see him go but this guy will be a lot cheaper and hopefully will be quick learner and developer. I think Caldwell can find creative ways to get him involved and he looks like a fierce blocker too. And hey Harvard has served us nicely the last few years so why not go back to the well?
Just a reminder
As much as we loved watching Lorenzo Neal, he was cut....
Sam Gash was let go (with a SB ring)
No reason to think that things are going to be any different.
Writing is on the wall ending with the words 4.3 million.
Writing starts by saying how great Vonta is, how much we respect and appreciate him...... and ends with wish him well....
Depending on how soon we need the cap space, we will look at KJ first if possible, but the press releases and probably in their final drafts if not already prepared.
1. Pay cut.
The only two sensible options for Leach IMO.
Leach is a fan favorite but I can't see them keeping him on the roster. He's the best blocking FB in football but a one trick pony and that's not enough to use a roster spot for. Juszcyk may not be as devastating a blocker(no one is) but he'll be solid in that role. Everything else he does better than Leach and will have to be accounted for as a threat to be a receiver whenever he enters the game, not just a human battering ram. He's fast and I'd love to see rambling through a secondary at 250 pounds punishing DBs. I've always wanted to see a player with his skill set. Plus, we need Leach's cap space when our LT is signed.
