I think we'll have a decent idea if Okoye will be a bust or not by this time next year. It will be year three and he will have to start producing by then.
What is his rookie contract till? I bet we see him for as long as that and if he continues like he did this year then he needs a major paycut to stay here.
I agree, I'd love to see more from Amobi in Year 3
Travis Johnson's contract is up this season right? If it is, he can kick rocks too......we need to either sign a BIG DT in FA or draft one.
High ankle sprain?
Sounds convenient. Anyone hear of him being hurt until now?
Still, just due to the him getting 5 sacks last year and showing flashes, indicates the talent is there. So no, not a bust . . . yet.
Now, Travis Johnson, that's another story.
Nope - he signed a 5 year deal. He's a $2.2 Million salary cap hit next year - approx. $1.2 Million of which is bonus allocation.
Yeah - he missed the Baltimore game and the second Indy game with it, and was listed on the injury report up until last week.
Well then why even think of calling him a bust then if it's known that he's been playing hurt??
Nevermind. I already know the answer to that one.
Same reason people were starting to call Mario a bust after he only got 5 sacks (or whatever it was) playing on a torn plantar fascia.
I agree. He was decent as a rookie, hit a wall and looked stunned by it ever since. He hasn't played well this year, certainly hasn't matched his first effort but still needs some time to put it together. I hope he does because at least one of the 1st Rd. DT's need to develop into impact players for this defense to take off...or at least become stable enough to support our great offense into a playoff berth and beyond.
Think of Mario with support...
He needs to step up today, not next year.
Well, next year also......
He is signed through 2010.
Yes, it has been out there most of the season.
Easy now, God don't like ugly.
I like TJ. He's been getting better the past two years. He's not as good as DelJuan Robinson, but I think he does well.
i also think TJ has gottin better still to think that we had derrick johnson in our hands and then good old casserly traded down... i still shed a tear when i think back to that day....
No Eric Winston without that trade down and I don't think I would be willing to part with our best offensive linemen for Johnson.
Is DelJuan Robinson big enough to be a NT? He has been playing terrific today against a stout Titans line... I think he has two or three tackles behind the LOS on CJ.
AO could easily be an athlete that peaks at 19 or 20.
Case in point: those top high school prospects no one hears from in college
Taking him ahead of Willis, Beason, and Revis just hurts
