It's reasonable to blame Kalil's struggles on injury. At his worst, he's looked stiff and slow, moving awkwardly. Given that his skillset coming out of college was highlighted by good footwork and mobility, it seems he's taken a step back physically.

The main question is whether this is a permanent decline in his abilities


This is exactly where I am at:

2014 13 knee Probable
2014 12 knee Questionable
2013 8 low back Probable
2013 7 low back Questionable


I know this is his second knee/ knees operation. I thought I remember his back getting worked on. I can't find any info on that. When healthy he is a probowl LT. I just wonder if the wheels are falling off.

Gosh I hope not. Throwing a 1.4 to the wind sounds painful.

Even if Kalil ends up an injury bust and can't play to the level of a good starter, the 2012 draft still turned out to be really good.

Cowboys land La'El Collins with 3-year deal





Cowboys signed LSU G/T La'El Collins to a three-year, $1.65 million contract.

The Cowboys' rich offensive line gets even richer. Speaking to Collins' unusual status as an undrafted free agent, his deal is fully guaranteed. It can be renegotiated after two seasons. Collins (6'5/305) earned the 2014 Jacobs Trophy as the SEC's top offensive lineman, finishing his career with 38 starts. He played left guard as a sophomore before protecting the blind side as a junior and senior. Collins was flagged for just one penalty in 2014. Although he was an excellent edge protector in college football's toughest conference, athletic limitations and 33 1/4-inch arms figure to push Collins inside to guard. In terms of pure playing ability, however, there may not have been five better prospects in the 2015 draft. Collins is a brawler with pro-ready drive-blocking ability and will make an immediate impact in the run game. His signing is bad news for LG Ronald Leary.



Crap ola. I wonder if money flew under the table to an uncles friends brothers neighbor.

Should we have interest in Ronald Leary. He is in a contract year. If Collins replaces him he is bound to chirp for a trade.

I really don't know how good he is.

Isnt he really old? I could look it up but im too lazy.
He did have a good year this last year but i helps when you are the weak link of an outstanding OL.

He is 26 years old. Leary had a very good year for Dallas, however, he played between Tyron Smith and Travis Frederick so its hard to judge him by himself given how much support Frederick likely provided.

I'd be willing to move a mid round pick for him though. He is a pretty big upgrade over what we have.

I wouldn't, and I doubt it will happen given the number of draft picks invested in the line, 4 other positions being set, resigning of Berger, and the apparent optimism for Yankey's progression.

EDIT: meant to say wouldn't*

I would be against trading assets for a left guard. As VR pointed out, he was playing between two of the better players at their position.

I think it's crazy that when looking at the Vikings roster only 5 numbers, not including those that have been retired, are available. And 49 and 78 are used twice.

I know he was somewhat high profile, but how long do people think Aiyegbusi will last?

With three rookies and a couple other more experienced backups, I think it's a long shot that he'll even get past the first round of training camp cuts.

I think he will get to see 1 or 2 preseason games. I don't think he makes the final roster though. They will probably give him a while to see if they can coach him up.

He might make it through the first round of cuts, but he's not long for the roster and I don't think he's a great practice squad candidate given his age.

Hopefully, with the title of this thread, you won't get into hot water with the publisher of Valhalla Press.com. Laughing
