That doesn't sound like Jay Ratliff at all Sandtrap. Shame on you, you should know better

True, but you should know there is always an "exception to the rule" somewhere. Take the NBA and a little guy named Spud Webb. A 5' 6" point guard that could dunk, and dunk well enough to win the slam dunk competition in 1986.

We lucked out with Ratliff honestly. He was drafted in the 7th round as a DE. We had Jason Ferguson as the NT at the time.

Rat struggled as DE for his first couple of years never cracking the starting rotation. And then Fergy got hurt and Rat was forced into converting to NT and never relenquished the job and we sent Fergy off to Miami for a draft pick.

The rest, as they say, is history.

If so great. I hope the best for him especially since he's a Redskin now. I'm sitting here imagining the combinations.....

Daniels, Kemo, AH

Orakpo, Kemo/AH, Carter

Orakpo, Daniels, Kemo, AH, Carter

Fun, fun.
Guys come back from Achille's injuries all the time now, it's not the career killer it used to be.

Re: Maake Kemoeatu DT signs 2yr $7million deal

Since I didn't know much about Achilles injuries, I looked it up. Seems like a pretty nasty injury based on this report. However, surgery gets better all the time.... I trust our new front office, and his contract is all incentive laden. Still a great signing.

One-Third of NFL Players With Achilles Tendon Injuries Sidelined

ScienceDaily (Jan. 15, 2010) — More than a third of National Football League (NFL) players who sustained an Achilles tendon injury were never able to return to professional play according to research in the current issue of Foot & Ankle Specialist (published by SAGE). The injured players who did return to active play averaged a 50% reduction in their power ratings.

The aim of the study was to document the epidemiology of Achilles tendon ruptures in the NFL and to quantify the impact of these injuries on player performance. Previous studies have looked at the occurrence of Achilles tendon ruptures in elite athletes in general, but very little was known about how often that type of injury occurred specifically in the NFL or how it affected the athlete's future ability to play.

Researchers looked at publicly available NFL data including websites that summarized games, statistics and injuries, to identify players who sustained complete Achilles tendon rupture. Also noted were such variables as the player's position, age, and number of years in the league prior to the injury. In addition, yearly performance statistics were collected for the players for the years before and after the injuries.

The study found that Achilles tendon ruptures can be career-altering injuries. Nearly 36% of players who sustained this injury never returned to play in the NFL and the ones who were able to return were never able to return to their pre-injury levels of play.

"This article provides a novel approach to shed light on valuable epidemiologic data for Achilles tendon ruptures among NFL players and the functional outcome of the injury," write authors Selene G. Parekh, Walter H. Wray, III, Olubusola Brimmo, Brian J. Sennett and Keith L. Wapner. "Future studies with the cooperation of the NFL and their official injury database are needed to fully evaluate the impact of Achilles injuries in this at-risk population."

I love this move. Low risk...high reward. if they waited until he was healthy and ready to go then there are a bunch of teams bidding on him.

Example, Jon Jansen was back in a year with no lingering affects.

Apparently there already were a lot of teams already interested

Re: Maake Kemoeatu DT signs 2yr $7million deal

This is an EXCELLENT signing for multiple reasons:

First of all, we need a true nose tackle. This guy is a house and when he was healthy, he was a force up the middle.

Second, his value couldn't be lower. He can't run so most teams are scared and we swooped in.

Third, it is a low risk contract. There is little guaranteed money so if he doesn't get healthy no harm is done.

This is the type of move that Vinny never would have made. Vinny would have overpaid to get Williams in here.

If he recovers and returns to form, i'm sure he'll be getting a healthy extension in the future. Nevertheless, i still think (if we go OT with our 1st round pick), we should consider drafting a NT with our 2nd.

I ruptured my achilles on Thanksgiving day and was playing softball the following March.

The only thing that I am worried about with this deal is why isn't he running by now? Either way, I am confident that James Andrews can fix whatever the problem is.

My guess is he had a large roster bonus coming and a big contract, so they released him.

Jansen and Buzbee returned from it. Buzbee insn't in the NFL but he is playing in the CFL.
