I can't seem to remember the last post explaining the expectations of Walker and Payne's health going into training camp. Can someone bring me up to date on the status of our DL.
Thanks

From what I know both are health and over their injuries.

with the arrival of TJ, i think Gary Walker will be released at the end of the season. He gets a big paycheck that he doesn't deserve. As for Seth Payne, i think he is still injured.

have any data to support this claim? This will be Payne's second year removed from ACL surgery, which has historically been when a player returns to their former level of production, all other things being equal. Payne made it through all of last year without any significant time lost or even much mention of his knees. He didn't perform spectacularly, but I'm not sure anyone should have expected that of him.

You really have to look not only at the salaries of players, but the salary cap ramifications when deciding to cut players. For the 2005 and 2006 seasons Walker is significantly more expensive to cut than he is to keep. This is because his signing bonus is pro-rated over the full term of his contract. Cut him during that term and the entire remaining pro-rated amount hits the cap this year.

As for Payne, there has been zero information that he is not recovering well from the exact same injury Gary Walker had during the off-season right before he went to the pro-bowl.

Gary will be fine.

You guys will be shocked to see the size of G-Funk in training camp. He's coming ready to play. And he know's he has pressure with new blood willing to take his spot.

Did something happen to Payne at the end of the year?

Payne injured his hamstring in the season ender against the Browns.

Yep, it's going to be like that old Nike commercial with Dennis Hopper as the NFL ref.

"You know what's going to happen when Gary Walker finds out about all the stuff people like mexican_texan have been saying about him? Bad things man, bad things..."

Don't have a current picture, but lets just say that some of us have "seen him".

But you still gotta love this pic, an alltime favorite:

Didn't anyone tell Mr Walker that he was yelling at the finest general manager in all of pro football?

That's what they say in Valley Ranch, anyway.
