Exactly! signed...Lyle Alazado, Bill Romanowski...What are PEDS anyway? Deer antler spray? Nugenix? B12? I would think anabolic steroids were 2 or 3 decades ago. Maybe I'm naive.

I thought he looked good in the preseason, but I doubt he makes the final roster now. This paves the way for a guy like Joe Giles-Harris or Baylon Spector to crack the final 53.

Not projecting future FA signings or draft picks, I could see Barnard, Milano and Spector as a very good to great 4-3 LB setup. No way in H they can be dumb enough to pay Edmunds 15+ per yr. .I'll shave my head if he all off a sudden makes game changing play(s) this year.

I mean if he doesn't cost against the 53 why not hang on to him and make the decision down the road.

   I imagine some of the reason they crack down of  PEDS is they are known to cause health problems when used excessively and with the safety concerns over effects from concussions it really does add to quality of life and when the nfl is paying settlements to vets over health issues they shouldn't be liable for health problems the players themselves cause to their bodies.  It's not like a health issues cause can be definitively traced to a specific injury.  Jr Seau cause of his suicide is generally attributed to cte and yet he may have dabbled in some peds that also could have been the root cause of his depression that led to his suicide.  No evidence he used any PEDs so its likely the cte but it's not impossible that Jr did use some peds at some point in his football career, maybe unknowingly if he went to a college with any shady strength conditioning staffs.

Totally agree. The NFL did nothing about CTE for 40 years, now they're committed to wiping out antihistamines not on the approved list. Makes total sense.

Yeah, it looks better for the NFL in court later.

I’m with you, except I think Bernard is yet another wasted 3rd round pick, and they’ll be drafting a LB higher next year to replace the guy they could have drafted hadn’t been fixated on a “need” position in the rounds before.  If they re-sign Edmunds to a top 5 level deal, I’ll officially give up on McBeane.

They just need to stop pretending.  They don't give a crap what the high profile/elite players do.  

That's pry what Hopkins was counting on.

The guy who held on lil dirty’s go ahead kick return vs the Titans last season 

And had no impact on the return. Terrible play by Smith and correct call by the refs even if it was far enough from the return guy not to make a difference.

Hilarious. Several comedians have done this notion justice. Obviously, show me the TRUE limits of human athleticism and violence (or violent athleticism) on the football field. Like doomed gladiators. 

 

But that's of course just effing unethical, inhumane, and evil. The number of players who pursue the sport as a way out, and up, who sacrifice so much even WITHOUT the added necessity to use PEDs. It's obviously an option to almost any player who wants it. But to make it essentially a requirement is just monstrous.
