  1. I remember he cost himself a TON of money, by going back to college ,instead of declaring the draft after his junior season

  2. Hello Matt, Sean McDermott and Brandon Beane here (we’re calling you together to save $). Have you ever seen Niagara Falls? Eaten Chicken Wings? There is a lot to do here….

  3. No with the injury settlement he is free to sign with another team. But no one will until he is health enough to play. Basically they paid him part of his salary for the year and he still has a chance to play this year.
