Fisher reacted differently to Dunbar's suspension than the others. There was something more to it.

Disappointed though. He'll be missed against the run. That all said, once Ray Ray is ready to play, we'll have some serious defensive speed.
How's Ogletree holding up so far?


Mixed. Amazing athleticism and flashes elite cover skills but still learning. Has made some mistakes and missed some tackles.

Plus, he's not the physical run stopper that Jo-Lonn was.

Armstrong is listed at 6-3, 217... that can't be right can it?

I obviously know he's a former Safety and all but how can he more than a special teamer if he plays LB and is only 217? Even Cato June [another former Safety who was moved to LB] was 225 pounds at 6-0.


Nah.

This is probably closest to the truth:

Around 6'3" 235.

With Dunbar released, his $1.3 million salary is wiped off the books, although he was already losing over $300,000 during the suspension. The remaining $994,000 won't count against the Rams' salary cap, although they will be charged $500,000 for the proration from the $1 million signing bonus he received in 2012. The Rams are also subject to a fine of about $102,000 because Dunbar was the team's third player suspended in this calendar year.

This is so true. Fish reacted in a very different way when asked about it during a press conference. Almost like out of everything that went on Fisher was highly betrayed.

Wonder if the Saints bring him back, they need depth badly.

Noooooooo

Fisher definitely seemed more frustrated with his suspension than Pead's or even Rok Watkins'. I doubt Spoon can make up for his absence but hopefully we have something in either Ray Ray or Daren Bates.

TurfShowTimes says that he reported to camp at 227.

If Fisher gives up on you, you either have a personality that does not mesh at all with him (and still that isn't enough on it's own), or you really dun messed up.

I'm guessing he failed another test. Maybe another suspension is coming.

I doubt it, but could it be for contract purposes? Where we re-sign him after the 4 games to a cheaper deal?
