One of the guys I’m really looking forward to seeing in pads, and one of the few guys on the defensive side of the ball with the potential to be an all out stud. We have several of those guys on offense but desperately need more on defense.


Agree gary b, MP may be that “game changer” we badly need on the D side. Hoping Osa can also upgrade our D line interior, AND if we sign MH, cautious optimistic he can be that missing piece that solidifies our third level. Hope he is heathy.

Not sure I should, but my expectations for our team are increasing as we soon start the preseason.

VAM- Nothing wrong with being optimistic. With a return to health, a full training camp and the infusion of talent via free agency and the draft, no reason why we can’t have a good season. Hopefully the coaches pull the right strings and put the team/players in a position to be successful.
