I guess I don't know what else to say outside of the fact that Quarterbacks were last a problem here during the Martyball days. So this is somewhat new territory we're treading into.
Rex or Beck is fine with me for this coming year. After that we can see what our options are. As for the FA options I don't see any them benefitting more than our in house personel.

Also, heard Rex was much more of a loner on the sidelines. Beck was the "leader" of the offense, offering up encouragement/words of advice to the rookies

Everyone in attendance is getting a copy of the playbook, if they don't have it already
I think you meant Lorenzo Alexander is down to 245...it is on one of the articles....it also mentions that Alexander is toying with playing ILB....now if that is true....that sounds like a potential long term fit. I never really thought of that idea for him before. Imagine him playing next to London Fletcher, or as his backup....I can see that as his long term home.
He sure has played enough positions to be able to make some defensive calls. Frankly, I'm kinda looking forward to seeing him try out the ILB spot.
What do you guys think?

No I meant Fred Davis

And yes, Alexander has been playing some at ILB. I think that may have even started last season

Yeah, I recall in camp they moved him there in a few packages. I agree that it is more likely a long-term fit for him & its a position we're thin at, especially if Rocky leaves as expected.

Good grief, how FAT was Fred Davis before?

Davis was listed at 255 last year.

Sounds like Davis is prepping to be Shanny's pass receiving TE. I'd like to see him work himself into the offensive scheme.

Even if they have their own coverage a major injury could be quite costly on many levels.
My guess is they have injury insurance to cover them during this time. Hell, college kids have it when they are highly regarded NFL recruits. I guarantee you that Andrew Luck has a injury insurance policy out right now.

Here's a look at a leaner, meaner Davis

The players that did show up for these voluntary procedures obviously feel exempt from the Ray Lewis proclamation that they should somehow feel rescued by the NFL.

With all due respect to Ray Lewis, it’s the players we have to worry about - The League - The Washington Post

sure but it's not going to help them recover the millions they could lose out on in free agency if they go down with a serious injury.

Beck apparently looking pretty sharp today

Hankerson has looked, according to a text "like we finally have a rookie WR who can make a difference. If this keeps up, he'll be the steal of the draft"
