    Not paying $100+ million to a player that doesn't show up "in casual fan stats". I don't need a $100 million+ player that is draw double teams but doesn't put on NUMBERS.

    How about not trading him for scrubs and paying him half his salary to play for another team

    Martin and Conley,I would say, are not scrubs.

    If no one is going to give you anything for him, get rid of him for what you can.

    And don't say before the draft. No one offered anything before the draft. That was the problem.

    And where did I mentioned Mingo? Martin and Conley are all that matter. Clowney is gone...give it up.

    Conley wasn't part of the trade.

    Martin has only played 19% of defensive snaps

    Said the guy who bumped this thread to let us know Clowney missed a game due to injury.

    Call preemptive for the next time Clowney makes a tackle.....for saying "See, he made a tackle...never should have traded him"!

    NO assurances that he would be injured either if he were still here.

    Martin plays on like 20% of possessions. He's only a pass rush specialist

    No need for run defense. It's not like Lamar Jackson is running all over the league or something

    And that's the point. You are getting the same sack production....in 20% of the snaps.

    There is only 1 Lamar Jackson. You worry about him......when you play him. Otherwise.......
