Senquez Golson Not Expected To Practice This Week; Sutton To Return


For the last three people still holding out hope for Senquez Golson to make the Pittsburgh Steelers’ 53 man roster, it might be time to finally walk away.

A left hamstring injury suffered on the third day of camp, the first in pads, still ails Golson, who told PennLive’s Jacob Klinger he doesn’t expected to return to practice. From Klinger’s article.

“The 2015 second-round pick said his left hamstring has healed enough for him to run, but not sprint, and that he won’t get back in practice until he can. Golson said he would defer to the team training staff but that he personally doesn’t expect he’ll be ready.”

Golson told Klinger “hamstrings take awhile.” Which is true but time Golson no longer has. You can assume he will not play in this week’s game against the Indianapolis Colts. That will leave him just one preseason contest against the Carolina Panthers on the 31st, though that is no guarantee for him either, taking place just six days after the Colts game. Even then, best case scenario he returns for the finale, there is too limited tape for him to push out Mike Hilton and Brian Allen, who have impressed during camp.

Even more concerning, Golson said his 2016 injury – a Lisfranc break in his foot – didn’t fully heal until right before training camp, still causing pain when he ran until “this past June or July.”


Golson may become the only cornerback sidelined. Cam Sutton told Klinger he will be a full participant in this week of practice, setting him up to have a good chance of playing versus the Colts. Sutton has been out since the second day of camp, also dealing with a hamstring injury. He was partial participant the final few days of training camp.

So Sutton will return. Maybe he’ll shine, maybe he’ll struggle. But at least we’ll know. With Golson, we never got the chance to find out.

  • WARisHELL

    That’s the nail in the coffin. I wonder who’s gonna claim him off waivers? If anyone at all.

  • Dorian James

    At least some good news with Sutton returning

  • ModusTollens

    if a guy can’t even make it thru a total of three practices in three years, then there is no way you can seriously consider giving him a roster spot. i feel bad for the guy, chalk it up to bad luck or whatever but the bottom line is that the steelers need to move on.

  • RickM

    Good line about “the last three people”. I’ve already said multiple times that Golson can’t make the 53. But his recovery time from a significant hamstring injury is normal. Just over 3 weeks and counting. The problem of course is that he keeps suffering injury after injury, and there is no more time to wait.

    Wherever he winds up I hope he can be healthy enough to prove whether he can make it in the NFL. I’m not sure that good football health will ever happen, but I hope it does.

  • Ken Krampert

    He is practice squad eligible. With the state of our dbs, we can’t afford to not kick every stone to see if he can eventually become a contributor. If he gets claimed then no big deal, we were going to cut him anyway.

  • Last 3 people.. 😂

  • The Chin

    Agreed

  • H.K. northern cali

    Can we take a mulagain for the golson pick? Just asking

  • Lee Foo Young

    What is a ‘mulagain’?

    Would you like a mulligan on your post? 🙂

  • H.K. northern cali

    Yep.

  • dennisdoubleday

    Let’s “mull again” whether or not we should have taken this guy. The fans screaming at the draft were right about Dri Archer, now they’re right about Golson. Enough with the speedy mini-mites.

  • Steelers12

    Someone will

  • Phil Brenneman II

    Really hope Sutton shows well. Been waiting to see him

  • alevin16

    Patriots

  • Steelers12

    IDK who but whoever does I bet he goes on n be a good player

  • stan

    I’d still be happy to put Golson on the practice squad if he goes unclaimed just because he has a high ceiling, but that’s the only way he’s going to remain with the Steelers organization.

  • Michael Mosgrove

    at this point he doesnt even deserve an injury settlement as hes been collecting checks anyways.

  • Michael Mosgrove

    tyler lockett, tevin coleman, pj williams, were all still available to name a few. actually of the picks we had from the 2015 draft, dupree the first pick and chickillo the 5th. have shown the improvement. jesse has moved minimally. the rest arent on the team anymore. golson doesnt count there.

  • SilverSteel

    Agreed

  • Milliken Steeler

    Exactly. My thing is, in the little bit of time he has practiced, they put him at number two and said he looked good. It’s frustrating that hes injured but these are my thoughts. Did we watch the secondary against the Falcons, pre season or not. This latest injury isn’t season ending and he could be back in two weeks. If Senquez and Cam pan out, this could make a huge difference in our secondary. Because of our secondary, I’m really in no hurry to boot him out the door.

  • Rotten Sircus

    I feel bad for Senquez seems like he can’t get a break !!!

  • srdan

    I wouldn’t jump on that bandwagon yet. Do you think he is more likely to get claimed than Hilton of wavers? I think so. If you think of it in those terms, it’s hard to justfiy keeping hilton on a DB thirsty team. We gotta see what he has before they cut ties in my opinion.

  • Beaver Falls Hosiery

    I am curious how much Senquez has been paid by the Steelers. I don’t think players get that much while at camp.

  • falconsaftey43

    To be fair, none of his issues have been size related. All his injuries were non-contact (shoulder seemed to be hold over from college, so unknown exact cause). It’s not like his body couldn’t take the pounding, he just kept getting hurt for whatever reason.

  • falconsaftey43

    I think Hilton is more likely to be claimed. He’s shown well on ST and looked good on defense. ST contributors are primarily the guys that get claimed. Don’t forget, if claimed, he has to be on 53 man roster for 3 weeks. You really think a team is going to use a roster spot on a guy who hasn’t been able to make it on the field for 3 straight years, may no even be healthy when he is released, and is an undersized guy? I highly doubt it. I think he’ll be on someones practice squad if he can get healthy and work out for a few clubs. If not, he’ll likely get a futures deal at the end of the season.

  • falconsaftey43

    about $2.2M so far for his 2 years on IR. gets paid his full rookie contract salary while on IR.

  • steelburg

    I share your thoughts my friend if it was another season ending injury I would say and let’s cut bait and move on. But I feel like we will keep him long enough to get healthy and contribute for someone else. We are two close to seeing what he can do IMO, and if he gets hurt again right after coming back and during the regular season then move on. But if it ends by him getting healthy and then being cut I for one will be a little salty. Like you said the reports out of camp before the injurie indicates a guy who can play and like you said its not like we have great options to move on to. Sensabaugh, Gay, and Cockrell will likely be gone next year. So waiting a little longer then you should for Golson makes a little bit of sense to me just to make sure this guy isn’t a star they we pass up.

  • srdan

    I guess the part i disagree with in your statement calling golson “a guy”. He is a second round pick.

    If he clears waivers he can be picked up. Which is the more likely scenario. So the 3 week thing doesn’t apply for either.

    I dont know man, steelers hung onto him. I think something is there. When coming out he was believed to be the second best skillset in a corner in the draft as I remember it.

  • Petherson Silveira

    He will make the team, just because is so obvious that he won´t. LOL

  • Justin Warrenfeltz

    I still think he’s worth a practice squad spot.

  • falconsaftey43

    There were plenty who viewed him as a reach in the 2nd as well. If he clears waivers, then the Steelers can sign him to their PS if they and he want to. I see no way a team is putting him on their active roster sight unseen. He WAS a 2nd round pick. Now he’s a guy who hasn’t gotten on the field 3 straight years. I could see practice squad for awhile then promoted to active roster if he does well.

  • Beaver Falls Hosiery

    wow.

  • falconsaftey43

    yeah, so don’t feel too bad for him, he’s made some good money off his draft position alone so far. Obviously it’d be better if he could ever get on the field, but at least the guy got paid.

  • Steeler Fanatic

    If he played the last preseason game and flashed, then keep 7 dbs and have him play special teams. Go with one less safety and have someone like Gay be an emergency fourth (bye bye Golden). I only say this because our corners are not good past Burns. Could Brian Allen be moved to safety?

  • Kevin Reich

    He figures he’ll get completely healed and catch on with another team. No practice this week and he’s gone.

  • steelburg

    When someone says he wont be claimed I like to bring up Ifo ekpre-olomu. The guy tore his acl in 2014 in college, he sat the 2015 season with 0 practices after being drafted by the Browns and got claimed after coming off a major knee injury. Multiple teams (4) in total including the Steelers put a waiver claim in for this guy in 2016 after he hadn’t played in about 2 years. He was a first round talent. Golson injuries haven’t been as serious IMO.

  • falconsaftey43

    good point, but that was in april when he was put on a 90 man roster, not a final 53, big difference. but at some point you have to move on. how many chances do you give a guy until you admit that it’s not working out?

    I have no doubt he’ll end up on a practice squad if he gets healthy and may work his way onto an active roster, but I see almost no chance he’s claimed off waivers at this time of year.

  • Mark

    Sad to hear, wish him well in his next endeavors or do we keep him on the practice squad to not share our secret coverages??? Lolol, our secondary gets lit up like Christmas Trees in Times Square

  • John Noh

    Alex, can the Steelers IR this guy again if push came to shove? Or is there a limit on how many times a player can go on the IR?

  • Corey

    If he plays well and stays healthy. I would rather keep him over a fringe WR (Hunter, DHB). Brian Allen would go to PS.

  • steelburg

    NFL coaches love players who are very athletic Golson falls in that category. Someone will put this guy on there 53 man roster. Even if he isn’t claimed he will be healthy enough to try out for a team having sat out the preseason he will be able to pass a physical and workout for someone that way. He doesn’t have to agree to be on the Steelers practice squad.

  • falconsaftey43

    that’s possible. But how many times should the Steelers give this guy to get healthy and show what he can do? This is his 3rd chance and he failed again. You do have to move on at some point. You can’t just hold onto a guy forever for fear that he’ll turn into a player for another team.

  • Shane Mitchell

    Funny, from what I saw Sunday he should have just played with an injured hamstring because I bet he would be better than the crap I saw out on the field getting their asses handed to them by the Falcons first string offense. How many preseason games did Cockrell need to play with this team to make the roster 2 years ago? Oh yeah, zero, because they had previously scouted him and had an interest in him prior to the draft.. So let me get this straight, you somehow believe the Steelers coaching staff don’t know anything about the player they drafted with the 52nd pick of the NFL draft and their entire evaluation of him would center around 1 preseason game? So the entire draft process and the reasons they selected him so early to begin with are trivial, its all about what would happen in 1 preseason game? Its not like he was selected based solely on physical attributes as a raw athlete. Golson was as polished of a CB as you will ever see coming out of college football. Only a moron would keep a less talented raw player over a polished proven talent because of a pulled hamstring. A month from now you still have a less talented player on your roster and the one with talent is now starting for another team.

    Watching preseason you have to evaluate what is needed for this team to improve versus just watching games as a fan and think, oh he had a sack on a blitz, we need him on the team,. I dont give a damn about a Mike Hilton schemed sack against scrubs, Antwon Valentino Blake would have looked just as good if you swapped the two and Butler dialed up cb blitzes left and right that werent picked up against 3rd stringers. What is the difference between Hilton and Blake? Well Blake isnt slow and he is an actually CB not a small safety. As an undersized safety Hilton is naturally going to look good making plays around the line of scrimmage, unfortunately come regular season against l NFL starting offenses we are going to need guys that can cover, The first quarter of the game against the Falcons was the only real NFL football that has been on display thus far. How were we attacked? and what does it look like we need? We need CBs that can cover NFL WRs this season. Is Mike Hilton going to improve our coverage? Nope Ok is the ridiculously raw WR turned CB Brian Allen going to improve our coverage this season, Nope. Ok how about 4th round talent Cam Sutton who also hasnt practiced. slim chance. Ok how about the player we invested the 52nd pick in the draft on, should we give him a chance even if we have to wait a couple more weeks or just shoot ourselves in the foot at this point and go with a roster that has 1 starting CB with talent and round out the roster with a diminutive safety posing as a CB and a WR posing as a CB. Yeah smart.

  • steelburg

    I think they should keep him on the 53 this year if he suffers a season ending injury again or misses significant time during the regular season then I would say cut him. The injury he suffered this time is so small and it was also predictable when you think about the foot injury he was coming off. My stand is this year if he can’t contribute this year then move on. He will likely be healthy when the season starts.

  • NinjaMountie

    One thing I love about preseason is watching the highs and lows of people. I remember last season when everyone was freaking out about the defense (not necessarily without cause). What happened? We made the AFCCG. Now after having a bad showing in a small sample size we have a bunch of people freaking out again. Some even want to keep a CB that can’t make it through a single padded practice because they think he makes the team better. SMH
    Put away all the worry. Two things make the most sense:
    1. This D will be better than the Falcons game. I’m not even doubting it.
    2. You can’t keep a guy that can’t make it through the opening of training camp for 3 years running.

  • Shane Mitchell

    Yeah I agree, apparently there are only three people with much commonsense lets give up on a 2nd round pick that is a polish CB and see if we can convert a WR on the fly to play CB in the NFL this season, ridiculous.

  • Jaybird

    Falcon if he does not practice again and is waived injured, won’t he also get an injury settlement for this year also?

  • Jaybird

    His body breaks all the time, what are you talking about! Lol

  • RickM

    Don’t misrepresent what was written. The reference was to making the 53, not to be adding to the Practice Squad. I’m sure there are other fans who feel a PS spot still makes sense and who understand your argument for it. Although from re-reading your comment I get the sense you feel he should make the 53. I would only agree with that if he has a bang-up final exhibition game.

  • Milliken Steeler

    No freaking out Ninja, just common sense. He’s a second round pick and our secondary, isn’t a strength. We kept him through TWO, season ending injuries and now he has a hammy, that should be ready in a couple weeks. if he somehow gets another season ending surgery, okay lest move on, but a hammy and he’s almost ready to go again and we quit now? That makes no sense to me. That’s all I’m saying.

  • Alex Kozora

    He can go on IR as many times as the team wants. There is no limit.

  • falconsaftey43

    If waived injured, yeah. I believe those are usually their pro rated salary for however long the injury is expected to take to heal.

  • John Noh

    Golson is Polish? Who knew? #SomethingNewILearnedToday.

  • Shane Mitchell

    I interpret what he write all too well, trust me.

  • Steeler Fanatic

    I see what you did there. Lol

  • John Noh

    I’m sorry but at this point, would you not agree that “if” should be in all-caps and in 72-point type when it comes to Golson and his ability to get on the field?

  • Steeler Fanatic

    I think we are severely cornerback deficient. Kick the tires in Sam Dhields- he has to be close to being ready. I still would give Golson a chance. Couldn’t we activate him before tge regular and stash him on PUP if need be?

  • Steeler Fanatic

    Sam Shields. I know the cb version of Ladarius Green, but kind of desparate here.

  • falconsaftey43

    He is currently active (just out hurt) so PUP is not an option. have to start camp on PUP to be eligible. Frankly, would have been better if he was hurt a couple weeks earlier so it would have been an option.

  • RickM

    Well what are you suggesting, and I don’t mean that as challenging. Are you saying that without any game action he should make the 53? Or are you recommending PS…if he is unable to play in Game 3 & 4 that is.

  • RickM

    Shields actually has gone on record as saying he’s targeting 2018 for a return. He’s had 5 known concussions I believe and is sitting out this year. At least he said that in June on his Instagram. As for Golson, many have washed their hands of him and I get that, but he would be on my PS.

  • Nolrog

    This guy has seen no football activity in three years. He provides zero value to any team. None at all. No one will claim him off waivers.

  • Nolrog

    He didn’t even make it thru a total of one practice in three years.

  • Shane Mitchell

    All they need to evaluate is if he has recovered from the serious injury to his foot, have they already surmised that before he pulled the hamstring I dont know,.

    They drafted him with the 52nd pick, I dont know what 1 performance in a preseason game would mean good or bad over all the time and study they put into drafting him at 52 to begin with, lets say he played bad, are they going to think oh we misevaluated him predraft lets cut him? Doesnt make sense to me.

    Personally I would keep Sutton and Golson both on the 53 I dont need to see them play a preseason game they are 2nd and 3rd round picks. Hilton I still need to see him cover, I seriously doubt his cover skills are anywhere close to Sutton or Golson he is a safety playing slot CB. I would probably cut Golden and keep Hilton as a slot CB/safety in his place, along with Golson and Sutton. Brian Allen is a major project so he would go the practice squad.

  • Hypo Cycloid

    He isn’t proven at all. He is still a rookie having never played a game. Not even a preseason game. The claim that he is polished is a little questionable. Maybe polished in college. But again, never proven in the NFL. And I would argue he has a low ceiling. He has no great physical traits. Short, short arms, short vertical. I don’t even think he has elite speed. I believe he will get destroyed in live, regular season game action due to these reasons. And his injury record is amazingly bad. I cannot believe he will make it through full games without developing injuries on a regular basis. His time is up. Moving on.

  • SkoolHouseRoxx

    At this point, I pray he can work up to get back on anyone’s field, but I can’t cry over what would, should, or could have been. I’d be stoked if Quez plays any last preseason game, but I’m a realist.

  • Jason Dock Dudley

    it really depends on what the team thinks of him in terms of how much does he bring when healthy. I get the he has not played..ever. However the coaches have an Idea. Highly possible that Golson goes to IR designated to return.

  • Shane Mitchell

    He was a 2nd round pick, you dont draft players in the second round because you are hoping they might prove themselves and make the team in a preseason game, lets get real

    Lets cut the BS, You didnt like the pick when it was made and now you would like to see him get cut so you can say I told you so, same crap that Alex is pulling with his articles and snide little remarks in parentheses every time he listed him injured.

  • Zhan 使美国再次伟大

    Anxious to see Sutton play.

    You know, I would have liked to have seen Golson play in a Steeler uniform.

    Just once.

    Guess that ain’t gonna happen.

  • Steelers12

    He will be on a roster

  • Steelers12

    Thank u… I thought I was the only one who felt this way

  • ryan72384

    The Lis franc still causing pain up until this summer is more of a concern than the hammy in my opinion. Doesn’t really matter though. As it’s been pointed out there is no way he pushes Hilton or Allen off the roster unless he plays the last preseason game and has 4 picks and 2 strip sacks on corner blitzes.

  • Dan

    Too bad for the guy, I had high hopes. Can’t wait forever, though.

  • D.j. Reynolds

    What does it hurt to put him on IR again if he can’t play? We could always bring him back midseason if he can practice with the team.

    After all, we get to bring 2 back now and we don’t have to designate them at the outset.

  • D.j. Reynolds

    Why not IR Golson and see if we need him midseason? We now get 2 returns from IR and don’t have to designate them as a potential return until they’re ready. This would also give him up to (I think) 3 weeks of practice time before being activated.

    This way we could potentially keep Hilton and Golson.

  • Rocksolid20

    LMAO

  • D.j. Reynolds

    I’d be OK with trying to sneak him through to the PS (and possibly promoting him if he stays healthy and we have an injury to a DB on the 53). I also wouldn’t mind IR’ing him again – doesn’t really hurt us in any way.

  • Rocksolid20

    Nope .

  • Rocksolid20

    Does he get to take his hot tub with him ?

  • D.j. Reynolds

    And, we can now recall up to 2 players from IR without designating on the front end that they may return.

    There is no real downside to IR’ing him again. The question is whether there is really any upside to it. I say why not?!

  • RickM

    You’ve left out Sensabaugh, so I assume you don’t expect them to keep him. They won’t be jettisoning him to keep Golson on the 53.

  • Steelahs

    Man i don’t think we should cut him still, i trust artie will have a good season but cockrell looks like he is gonna struggle and gay is ok but he is getting older. I know they probably cut him but with our secondary we should try being more lenient; senquez has the worst luck though.

  • Dshoff

    Don’t say break… 🙂

  • Dshoff

    Don’t say bang up.. 🙂

  • Ni mo

    Can they place him on IR or waive him if they waive him how much they save for cap

  • Shane Mitchell

    Funny how the spin from a few reporters and bloggers seems to be turned much more negative than the truth.
    Gerry Dulac reported that Golson’s hamstring was a pretty good tear, completely contradicting what Golson said in an interview with Pennlive. who should I believe Golson or that moron Gerry Dulac?

    “They told me it wasn’t torn. They didn’t really go into to much detail,” Golson said. “They were like ‘It’s not torn so it’s just a matter of time.'”

    “There’s one thing I do know,” Golson said. “It’s not going to be a season-long injury, so I’m just getting myself acquainted to play football.”

  • Shane Mitchell

    No I didn’t my 6 corners would be
    Burns,Cockrell, Gay, Sensabaugh, Golson, and Sutton

  • RickM

    Yeah, see that now, my error.

  • Reg Sayhitodabadguy Hunt

    I agree with both sides of this argument I’m a big supporter of golson but after 3yrs my patience is wearing thin I want him to be a steeler if he can clear waivers on the ps I’m cool with it but if they decide to cut ties I can’t be mad it’s business nothing personal I guess this is how people feel when they get asked out on a date by their crush only to keep getting stood up

  • derp_diggler

    Does he have to be put on the 53 man roster if we outright release him? I thought that only applied to guys being claimed off practice squads? Can a team not sign him to their own practice squad?

  • pittsburghjoe

    Why not just put him on IR? If they get anything out of him next year its just an unexpected bonus. They can cut ties in camp if he does not perform well.

  • psteelers

    I don’t think there is any chance we cut Golson. This current group in the secondary is suspect. Us fans and the other 31 teams knows this. We’ve waited this long no sense of bailing out now. If we had better options I know it would be a no-brainer to cut him..im almost positive Golson was recognized as doing a good job playing AB one on one during his rookie campaign in minicamp. That’s more than we can say about any other corner on this roster.

  • Hypo Cycloid

    I am all about playmakers. But I don’t see any clear translation of playmakers in college to playmakers in the pros. Two different beasts altogether.

    I hated the pick. You are right. I hate any pick that physically shows a low ceiling in the league. Golson fits that bill. I love this team, so your notion that I just want to say I’m right is flat out wrong. I wish he was a stud. But I also know these small players also generally have higher rates of injuries. So I’m done with him. Doesn’t matter where the pick was. He is now a detriment to this team. And I just looked up their 40’s. 4.46 for both. Good, but not elite.

  • John Pennington

    These draft picks and some vets need to start taking better care of themselves. Year after year draft picks and same vets miss way to much of training camp not fair to guys trying to make the team andthe guy who misses time makes the team and the others get kicked to the curb.

  • Denny

    So then we keep him over Hilton and Allen? If the foot injury from last year cost him some speed as some have speculated, then he may not be the same player he was before. The other thing I always think about with Golson is that while the Steelers drafted him in the 2nd round, many of the rankings had him going much later. I know Gil Brandt had him as a late 4th rounder one spot ahead of Doran Grant. It seems like the coach’s patience has worn out with Golson so if he is cut I won’t feel too bad about it. But it would definitely suck if he turns out to be a better player than Hilton and Allen for another team.

  • Steelers12

    Time will tell

  • walter

    I would try to stash him on the PS while he gets into football shape.

  • walter

    I wouldnt feel nearly as bad if he was a fourth round pic.. i liked him but not as a 2nd rounder.

  • walter

    I think we tried that last year. Good idea as long as we dont have 2 other more important proven players to designate return from IR.

  • Ryan Alderman

    Haha, probably right.

  • walter

    I don’t dislike the pick but I disliked it in the 2nd round. We drafted Golson for his stats sorta like JJ in the first round.

  • MintDragon

    Ed bouchette said in his chat that he thinks the Steelers might move him to IR. Was kinda surprised at his reply to a question personally…

  • DarthYinzer

    Bye

  • John Phillips

    I’d rather save the 2 for men that have actually played in the NFL not the NCAA. Save him for the PS.

  • John Phillips

    Have you seen our secondary? He has more upside than most.

  • NinjaMountie

    We kept him because there was no reason to cut him. His contract was guaranteed through the first two years and he didn’t cost a roster spot. His contract is no longer guaranteed. If they wanted to try and PS him then I’d be on board for that but I don’t see how he makes the 53 barring superman play the last couple weeks. I just don’t see that happening, though.

  • MC

    Damn. At least Limas Sweed and Bruce Davis made field.

  • Shane Mitchell

    “You are done with him” LMAO…… thanks thats all we need to know, yeah I am flat out wrong thinking your unnatural hatred of a player has anything to do with your ego.

  • Dewayne Braxton

    He has not played in three years. To me that looks serious enough.

  • Brenton deed

    Hmm the Lisfranc wasn’t completely healed until June … this probably explains the hamstring injury … the muscles weren’t conditioned enough … not his fault but sometimes life sucks… he’s got to be history unless he comes back in the last week of preseason and channels Rod Woodson.

  • jsteeler

    Everyone heals differently and at their own pace. I pray he gets healthy and recoup a spot. I am praying for you young Man.

  • Brenton deed

    That would be nice but maybe that means he’s put on IR designated to return? I have a suspicion all he needs is time to heal, get conditioned and then play.

  • Brenton deed

    All “pulls”, “strains” etc are tears of various degrees so it’s all semantics… for him to be out this long it was more than a “strain”… but a good “tear” can be 10 or more weeks to recover from so it sounds like he’s in-between.

  • Al Webber

    Lots of people saying that Golson could go to PS, but can’t see that happening. A bottom feeder like the Jets or Browns would claim him off waivers. Neither are expected to compete this season, so taking a chance on replacing their number 5 or 6 CB with a guy who has the talent to be a major contributor going forwards is a no-brainer. He won’t clear waivers. It’s the 53 or he is gone.

    Why are some people so down on Golson because of his height? Hilton is the same height, and the same people seem to love him. Golson is quicker and more athletic than Hilton. As the number 6 CB who wouldn’t be expected to see much playing time, keeping Golson still makes more sense to me. At best, Hilton is probably a Brice McGain type – someone dependable who will never be a star. Gay and Sensabaugh give us that type of player in the short term. Go with Golson’s upside.

    But, he can’t make it thru a single practice.

    I don’t think Golson plays again this preseason. Next year, he will play for someone else and we’ll,all,get to,see what could have been. In the meantime, great news on Sutton, who the team desperately needs to become a player.

    If I understand correctly, you no longer have to designate them up front as IR for Return. Instead, my understanding is that you just designate everyone as IR and later you can choose up to two top bring back. If this understanding of the rule change is correct, then there is no risk – you can always bring 2 other guys back instead if you prefer.

    he’ll get caught carrying a gun at an airport

    PUP list… 6 weeks to decide if you still want him

  • Terrible Towlie

    he’s been getting paid out the ying yang for doing nothing…..sounds like a great gig

    He didn’t start camp on PUP, so you can’t now designate him as PUP (its too late).

  • D.j. Reynolds

    I read something that says rule change not longer require a pre-designation of possible return. If so, he doesn’t take one of the 2 spots unless you decide later to bring him back.

    this is a suck
