why the hell do you sign this guy knowing he may get suspended?? yes our front office and coaches walk on water but even they can slip in the shower and fall down. i do not care if he was the best available free agent at the time. its like they signed him and just assumed he would not get suspended. ahhh
Maybe Baalke honestly believed he wouldn't get suspended. I'm sure they know what they're doing bud, it's not like we just lost Willis or Bowman for the season..
I suspect we signed him hoping the league would impose the suspension at the onset of the season, resulting in a worst case scenario of him being available for the Jets' game.
We could have easily managed without him for the 1st couple of games. However, the league's foot dragging really screwed over Baalke and the Niners.
Given our limited cap space, we don't really have many options. Cutting Haggans would not help because his salary is guaranteed already.
If there's an injury to an OLB during the game, we would probably play nickel the rest of the game. We won't be elevating anyone from PS until it's absolutely necessary.
