  1. “The Raiders are no longer into bringing in players with character issues.”
    And it’s been years since they have.

  2. Wow we have a Hemmingway on our hands with that TFY mock draft writer. With descriptive language like, “One can only imagine Owner Jerry Jones simply slobbering over the potential talent of a prospect such as Taylor Mays. His size/speed ration is off the charts…” I can see a Pulitzer for him any day now.
    ‘slobbering’? *shakes head*

  3. Yes, the Cowboys were absolutely right to ‘not pursue Holmes. He’s a turd with a capital ‘T’. The Jets coughed up a 5th round pick to ‘rent’ him for 12 games (assuming he doesn’t ‘wake and bake’ during his monitoring program and get the full 1 year suspension (which is what the Steelers are betting will happen).
    There’s no room for a guy like that in Dallas.

  4. No room for a guy like that in DALLAS?
    Yeah, I never think character issues and Dallas go together.
