    Kindle is going to have to earn a spot next season. They aren't going to automatically keep him this year.

    This is what I thought they would do with him this year in obvious passing situations at minimum.
    Seemed to work for the 49ers with Aldon Smith.

    Aldon Smith didn't have to play special teams.

    That's a very good point.

    They don't seem to be ready to give up on him yet, and based on the way they worked his contract and being on the "Non-Football Injury List" in 2010, he's only now completed his first accrued season in the NFL, so contractually he's just completed his rookie year. As such, they've got 2 more years to see what happens before he becomes a RFA - at which time their salary commitment would increase greatly.

    Personally, I'm not real optimistic about him ever being what we had hoped him to be, but there's certainly no reason to not let it play out and see what may happen. At this point, anything we get would be a bonus.

    And you can see when the broncos played the steelers and had James harrison looking confused all day shows why it took him so long to learn a playbook. all muscle and no brain. He cant read plays and his awareness sucks. I hope kindle is not like that.

    Tom Brady plays for the other team, he doesn't have the playbook. Kindle and defense probably have study sessions all the time.

    Maybe they should give him a shot of tequila every time he remembers a play correctly. Positive reinforcement. It worked for that pavlov guy.

    Re: Kindle had a hard time digesting the playbook.

    It would not surprise me if Sergio Kindle put himself at a disadvantage. Not long after he was drafted, he was making declarations of winning the Defensive Rookie of the Year. In July, we all expect that he had a few too many to drink and fell down the stairs. After that, instead of studying the playbook, he was getting his head worked on.

    If he has truly changed his ways, he will make this team and make an impact. It will be, because he put in the work this off-season. Both physically and mentally. If he does not make the team, we will know why.

    Re: Kindle had a hard time digesting the playbook.

    There was another guy who didn't get the playbook for two teams until late in his career - James Harrison.

    I'm not saying that Kindle will be as slow or as gifted as Harrison but in the end he needs reps.

    OTA's and training camp are going to tell the story or more specifically if he's cut or kept.
