Sergio Kindle looking for work, works out for Giants

Sergio Kindle AP

There was once a time when Sergio Kindle was a promising pass-rush prospect, who seemed to fall into a perfect situation.

But the fall down the stairs prior to his rookie training seems to have derailed his career, and now he can’t seem to latch on.

After the Ravens cut him from the practice squad recently, he worked out for the Giants but wasn’t signed, according to Aaron Wilson of the Baltimore Sun.

The former second-round pick suffered a fractured skull and hearing loss after his 2010 accident, and has never showed the same kind of burst he showed in college.

The Ravens referred to their parting as “mutually agreed upon,” and coach John Harbaugh said he wishes Kindle the best.

“He and I have gotten real close,” Harbaugh said at the time. “I feel some responsibility for him and really want to see him do well. I really think he has a chance to be good in this league. I’ll be there to support him and do whatever we can to help him. He’s hoping for an opportunity somewhere where he can maybe take the next step.”

When a team that has invested in you is ready to move on, and you can’t find a job at a time when teams are signing guys for expanded offseason rosters, it’s reasonable to wonder whether there is another step for Kindle.

    If. A guy with one leg can wrestle and win (USC) then Kindle can bounce back. I’m not a ravens fan but I’m rooting for Kindle. #DOWORK

    Giants are going places, unlike the Redskins.

    I feel really bad for this guy. If he hadn’t fell and had his accident, he’d be living a dream & heading the Super Bowl. Tragic.

    CFL. He can work hard, get on the field, & show what he can do. Two NFL great LBs in Lewis & Suggs showed him how, now find the outlet to do it.

    CFL.
    That is his next step.

    I feel bad but how do you fall down TWO flights of stairs? How do you turn that corner? That sucks.

    The Raiders could use an outside linebacker or five. Hopefully Big Reg will give this guy a chance.

    I’ll agree that it sucks, but this guy fell down the stairs after getting himself so hammered he couldn’t walk, right? Pretty much the man in the mirror to blame for that.

    i dont get it. i thought the nfl was trying to cut back on head injuries but for some reason they are allowing someone that had a serious head injury to try to make a comeback.

    The wizard of oz strikes again! Nice draft pick ozzie!

    Perhaps he and Limas Sweed can work out together and look forward to another shot!

    GO STEELERS!

    Good luck to him. I hope he does well. i think it a shame that some Steeler fans cant be more like Deb and most others instead of showing no respect for a young injured kid. You have no class and make all Steeler fans look like fools with comments like those!
