  1. Eddie Goldman has been put on notice. They drafted his replacement and now have signed 2 DTs that have starter potential.

  2. Penneln was an oft-injured Packers lineman who drove hope to Packers fans due to his brute strength. Wish him well but I wouldn’t expect much.

  3. This guy was instrumental in the 2019 WORLD CHAMPION Chiefs run defense improving mid-season. Under-recognized but an effective player. Good luck…..

  4. Eddie! Fix up and look sharp!! Your replacement has just entered the building…

  5. Eddie Goldman is probably (it would hope) working out hard to get from the tub of goo he probably let himself get him with his year off. Time to see if Eddie has the will (he has the talent) to prove he wants to play football…. or will non-play his way out of the league….
