Question is this: What role does Posey play in this scenario? I mean, A.J., O.D., and Foster are gonna be targeted and now Hopkins is sucking up what's left and making the most of them. Where does that leave Posey?
Posey will be relegated to backup duty. Dude has a tough recovery ahead, and a tougher road to become significant in the NFL imo.
