I'm a huge Vontaze Fan and supporter. Think this a great pick-up for you guys. Zimmers and Marvin will keep him in line and He still has the potential to be a Great MLB or SLB. Him + Rey-Rey willbe sick for you guys, opposng defenses should be intimidated by those two.


Hope you're right man.

Hope M & Z will keep his head on straight; we've had enough boneheads on this team the last few years........

Hopefully, thinking he was a 1st or 2nd rounder and having every team pass on him for the complete draft has taught him something. If he comes in as a team player, works hard and plays smart he could end up being a Pro-Bowl player. He has done those things before and he hasn't, I'm hoping he gets it!

I wish we'd passed on Burfict. We were already overstocked at LB and if we added another one, I'd rather we'd re-signed Brandon Johnson. Burfict is a bad locker room guy and distraction. If he was serious about football, he'd have gotten in shape for the combine and given up dope.

I would describe our LB situation as 'uncertain' rather than 'overstocked'.

Both Moch and Muckleroy are coming back from injury, Rey-Rey might get suspended, and the depth behind Howard-Maualuga-Lawson is uncertain.

Burfict IMO was worth the risk.

The bar thing was dismissed. Just throwing that out there: he may not be suspended.

Just about anyone is worth the risk of an UDFA

This.

If the locker room were to let some 22 year old punk like Burfict seperate them, then Marvin should lose his job before anyone else.
