    Good addition if he can still play after his ACL injury

    Look forward to seeing him on the field. He was really good. Glad we're taking a flier on him. We've got to get this defense back on track, even with no Watt, Cush, Merci & KJo who should be returning soon there is still enough talent to be solid.

    Mario Williams must be done if he's not getting any calls.

    IMO he was done when he left the Texans.

    He got 38 sacks in his first 3 years with the Bills, 2 pro bowls and a first team All-Pro. He was never an All-Pro with the Texans. And his career high in sacks came 3 years after he left Houston.

    From Wikipedia
    "On October 26, Houston tore his ACL while celebrating a sack of New England Patriots backup quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo, while the Bears were losing by 25 points."

    Probably the saddest thing I have ever read

    He's not a pass rusher anymore but I think he could still be effective in stopping the run though

    Good sign. But he is another injured prone player LOL. I hope he stays healthy. If he does stays healthy, he is a solid player.

    We don’t need help against the run. We desperately need to generate a pass rush to rescue this secondary

    His jersey will sell like crazy if he becomes decent.

    Why don't we also sign Dwight freeney?

    What happened to Marcus Sayles? Kjo is back in a couple weeks but I would really like to help the secondary. Maybe trade Duane BRown for one? And did we not even try out Branden Albert? We don't need to let this season go to waste just because of injury.

    Can definitely make an impact IF HEALTHY. I don’t trust the health of guys who tear their ACL celebrating a meaningless sack, but this could be good if he’s healthy.

    Calling out coaches after games and getting called out by coaches for being out of shape and effort are not good looks.
