Rocky Returns

So I know we're already discussing this in two other threads but maybe it deserves its own thread.

Rocky McIntosh, to some surprise, is returning on a one year contract.

What does this mean for Riley? For Henson?

Re: Rocky Returns

He was horrible last year. Must mean they don't have much faith in Riley or Henson

Re: Rocky Returns

Henson is on the PUP list right maybe his injury is worse than expected

Re: Rocky Returns

Hey why not bring back Rocky at least we know he will play hard, solid lockerroom guy. It will only give us more depth at the positon. Besides we did not invest much in this resigning if our younger guys steps up and starts over Rocky. I think Lorenzo would be a good fit a the other ILB spot next to Fletch. he has the size like a former Steelers LB Levon Kirkland.

Re: Rocky Returns

I didn't see this coming. I just don't think he's cut out to play ILB in a 3-4. Maybe I'm just missing something here.

Re: Rocky Returns

he's a vet body, he missed a lot of higher quality ones, he's cheap, he's decent... no real downside, even if he's not a world beater.

True, but by all accounts Riley was looking good so far, and he looked good in limited playing time late last season, and he's been in this 3-4 just as long as Rocky has. I won't mind the Rocky deal as long as it's still an open competition for that other ILB spot.

Re: Rocky Returns

Maybe it means we'll be seeing more 4-3 formations?

Re: Rocky Returns

One of our biggest weaknesses in years past has been depth. This adds depth.

Who knows what it means about Riley's progression, but having 2 guys going for that job increases the chances that one of them ends up being good at it.

Re: Rocky Returns

Depth...the LB position/s are both thin and basically inexperienced except for Fletch. The plan could be to bring someone else in, but I'll take Rocky until we can do better.

Re: Rocky Returns

Yea......depth is good.
Let the best man start.
McIntosh isn't Wilbur Marshall but he's at least a half decent vet.

Re: Rocky Returns

I've heard nothing but good things so far about Riley, he seems poised to hold down a starting job. With Henson on PUP perhaps this is just a depth move until he's ready to return.
