    Two pretty good pickups kn here from what I see…#1 D’Andre Walker is a solid pickup for the Seagawks and their pass rush depth..

    #2 Huntley for the Eagles is also an excellent pickup. Huntley was highly underrated coming out of college, playing at New Mexico State..Huntley can pick em up and put them down..He could be a potential steal for the Eagles, but Detroit just had a very crowded backfield..So, you cannot blame them for trying to sneak Huntley onto their PS..

      Huntley could serve as insurance for Sanders, being an explosive scatbacks that could break away for a massive gain if given an open field.

      I thought Connelly was a nice addition as well. Minnesota could use the depth an inside linebacker and Connelly didn’t completely embarrass himself last season in limited action for a defensively-challenged Giants squad. He handled himself well in a leadership role at Wisconsin and is likely willing to work hard for the opportunity to flash his talent

        Agreed. I am a Connelly fan and disappointed the Giants cut him. He played well in limited action like you said. Being that they just drafted him in ‘19 and only played a few games before the injury I thought they would give him more of a chance.

          Also, another note on Connelly, again he is a Wisconsin Badger..There is one thing I have learned about their LBs over the years, and that is THEY ARE ALL high football IQ, tackling machines!!

          Whether it is DeAndre Levy, the aforementioned Connelly, Zach Baun, TJ Watt, Joe Schobert, Vince Biegel, O’Brien Schofield, or even the Human Missile in Chris Borland, you never underestimate or bet against a former Wisconsin LB..

          It’s a shame Borland retired due to his concussions so soon. Every 49ers fan was used to Patrick Willis, Takeo Spikes, and Navarro Bowman, three of the most physically gifted and athletic beasts ever seen at the ILB position..Most 49ers fans saw Borland as a waste of a draft pick, and wrote him off as being too small and too slow..He INSTANTLY proved them wrong, and came in flying around like a human wrecking ball. He just simply made tackle after tackle, play after play..Easily ending games with 8-12 tackles each and every night, and quickly became a fan favorite for his work ethic and relentlessness..

          I’m glad he left before he could possibly do even more damage to his future, and hope he is doing well and healthy today. Selfishly, as a football fan though, it was a huge blow and really stunk seeing him leave the game so soon!! Always left you wondering just how good he could have and likely would have become!!

            I remember Borland. He was part of that 2014 squad that self-imploded and led to Harbaugh’s dismissal. Willis retired and Gore retired, signalling the end of a regime. Baalke was clearly in over his head, Kaepernick declined, and Chip Kelly was a nightmare.

            On the bright side, it led to the rise of Lynch/Shanahan, while the franchise found their quarterback for just a second round pick. They now breed talented young linebackers in Warner and Greenlaw

        That was exactly my same line of thinking for Huntley and the Eagles.

        Also, thank you for that, good call on Connelly, I honestly didnt know enough about him as a player to say one way or the other. Minnesota is excellent at developing their young defensive players though, so he should be in good hands. That is especially being able to learn under one of the league’s best in Kendricks..

        Connelly will definitely have a role though, like you mentioned. If you look at their roster, other than Kendricks and Barr, they’re only carrying Oregon Rookie Troy Dye and Week 3, 13, 16, and 17 standout and 25yr old Eric Wilson..

        Wilson earned himself a starting shot this season with his play late last season, but next up are Connelly and Dye. They both should also see some extensive snaps on ST

    PARIS belongs in Texas !!
    By Golly !
    The Raiders wanted a YOUNG Tackle and that’s exactly what they went out and got !
    Don’t be surprised if a New York Giants LB who just hit IR ends up in Minnesota at the MAYO Clinic !
    Eagles still in search of a RB named Brinkley !
    Seattle will take it slow with their new LB until he shows that he can be more than just a WALKER !

      That was a seven exclamation point post…
      Has to be a new record!!!!!!!!

    I’m just wondering what happened to the polls on this site. With the season about to start, it’s time to find out who everyone thinks will reach the playoffs.
