Re: Odell Thurman Cut:

I'd rather eat a poo salad than see the Skins sign Thurman. This guy has burned through his second, third, and fourth chances.

I'd like the Skins to sign Thurman just to see that...

THis seems like a low risk signing, if they brought him in and he was in good shape and the FO felt he could help us I wouldn't be upset with this move. The beauty with the NFL is we could cut him if he did even the slightest thing wrong.

Re: Odell Thurman Cut:

It's amazing what some people are willing to look past.

This guy is a bum. Let someone else take a chance.

I amazed at some people too, prob not the same ones as you though. The Pats took a so called bad apple last year "Randy Moss" and it turned out great. The guys got made some questionable decisions, he paid the price. Bring him into camp with an agreement at one little mis step and he's gone. And see if he can turn it around... If he can't cut him, no harm... no foul. He doesn't need to be a boy scout.

Re: Odell Thurman Cut:

Let's not compare Thurman to Randy Moss. There is no comparison.
- Moss has not failed/failed to show up for any drug tests.
- Moss has only been convicted of a misdeamenor traffic violation in his NFL career.
- Moss has never been suspended from the NFL
- Moss is a top 5 talent at his position and has been consistently for years.
- Can't really blame a guy for having a bad attitude in Oakland. It isn't called the "Black Hole" for nothing.

We are not that thin at LB that we need the potential distractions and negative presence that Thurman is. Let another team give him a second chance....Oakland comes to mind.

Re: Odell Thurman Cut:

I like the thought of this guy being a good linebacker for nothing, but the Redskins dont ever get guys like this. I have read every late rou d draft pick they got and they all say hard worker great intangibles. They probably wont take this guy, even for free.

Exactly, there's a huge difference between being a malcontent as Moss was in Oakland and a bum with a rap sheet like Thurman.

If the Raiders I mean Bangles don't want him that's all I need to know. No way we sign him.

Lol, a high Madden rating will get you a lot of respect on the local forums.

I remember seeing this thread thinking "for once can this just be about why he got cut and not a lobbying attempt to sign this guy for the minimum?" but that hasn't been working for me.

I wouldn't touch him with a ten foot pole with gloves on.

Re: Odell Thurman Cut:

Well while we're on the linebacker depth kick, if we do end up signing a former high caliber Linebacker for depth then I think that Takeo Spikes would be a better option. Not saying I really want him, and I doubt the FO will do it, but if it was between Thruman and Spikes I would much rather have Spikes. At least Spikes doesn't have character issues and has been in football as of late.
