Jay Gruden says Bryan Stork still has a decision to make

First Bryan Stork was supposed to be cut. Then Stork was supposed to be retiring. Then it was announced that Stork had been traded from New England to Washington.

But Stork still hasn’t reported to his new team, and we still haven’t heard from Stork directly whether he plans to play or not. And after tonight’s preseason game, Washington coach Jay Gruden indicated that he isn’t certain whether Stork will play.

Instead, Gruden said Stork will “supposedly” report for work tomorrow but has a “final decision” to make tonight.

From all indications, Washington still thinks Stork will be on its roster. But we don’t know that for sure yet.

  1. I think he is having a tough time realizing he went from starting center in NE to traded to the Red Skins.

    I hope he continues to play.

  2. Given how badly Kory Lichtensteiger has been struggling this preseason (3 holding penalties last night??) let’s hope Stork decides to play.

    What would our other option be, Leribeus? /shudder

  3. Are we in that bad a shape we would put any trust into a guy who is ready to retire from football after just a few years? I hope he retires.

  4. One hopes that aside from emotionally trying , and confusing issues , Mr Stork confronts the devil he has become better acquainted with by the dead weight of repetition . In the present tense , or by Stork’s repeatedly suffering of concussions , if one had a less loaded guess of a less optimistic prognosis for Mr Stork ; whose few choices that have anything to do with his future health , none include the knocking of his noggin anywhere here on earth .
    I read a few laments yesterday that underlined the pitiful protections an NFL invested player has measured against financial security , or viewed against economic rationality measured against domesticity , one might see it as an equation that is an exercise in cruelty .
    The folly in a policy that disregards Mr Storks series of concussions is nothing less than alarming , or worse . The commissioner could repair parts of his , and the owners image , by making a concession that a player facing serious risks to health as consequences of repeated concussion events would suffer no financial , or economic penalties for refusing the certain risk of continued concussion .
    I have no idea how this would work out but lord knows it needs to be looked at and acted on . Not for any other reason than it is as wrong not to , as it would be to accept a person stomping folks , because they enjoy doing that sort of thing , especially at holidays .

  5. There’s no decision to make here. You are prone to concussions and have had too many already. You have a long life ahead of you if you stop now. You made some money, have a Super Bowl ring and played with Tom Brady, now go find something else to do with your life.

  6. He’s going to be out 800k if he doesn’t play. If he doesn’t have 800k anymore, which may be the case, he’s in a tough spot. I hope he can make his decision without $ being the main factor.

    That is drivel.

  8. He failed his physical… no doubt as a result of the concussions.

    Can’t say I’m shocked.
