  • In just a few games, he was already 3rd on this team in sacks. The cap savings was minimal considering he was on vet min, pro-rated status. It's just another illogical, stupid move by Carroll and JS and frankly that's becoming the norm lately.

    And for people claiming well he had 1 bad play against Atl so that's reason for cutting him?? Every one of our star players have a couple bad plays or more every single game. Freeney added to a badly needed pass rush and Carroll got rid of him to keep a new 6th string receiver and to save maybe 50k. Just par for the course with the FO decisions lately.

    Thank you, the FG article explains it all very well. Cap, team control, and then reduced production of the D-Line as a whole. Take away that Matt Ryan scramble and it makes a huge difference in that game.


    Why did we even sign him then? How much more production did they think they were going to get out of Freeney?

    They signed him because Avril went down. This was also before we lost other key players.

    Yeah I get that. These guys were expected to come back by the FO though right? I'm asking these questions because what we know is Avril got hurt, Smith and Jordon are due to come back. Coaches seem to already like Smith so now they need to see how Jordon does when he comes back. Jordon pans out.

    So if everything goes as hoped after Avril goes down, the FO only had the intent to sign Freeney for what, four games. Then cut him so they can even out the roster. Also why was it so important to get this offensive and defensive balance now? Was it that critical? If it was, why was it to an offensive position that is already deep? Just seems like odd reasoning, I could be missing something though. Never heard of a "healthy scratch" either till this season.
