D O L is at it again...

Postby fun gus » Sat Mar 29, 2014 9:02 am

All of the talk about gang ties is suspect.

If he was in a gang, the NFL and the Eagles would have known that after all of the pre-draft background checks back in 2008. His release likely had more to do with his $12.5 million salary cap number and the Eagles decided to re-sign Jeremy Maclin and Riley Cooper.

Don’t expect Jackson to stay unemployed long.

Here are five reasons why the Falcons should sign Jackson.

1.AGE: He’s 27 and his future is ahead of him.

2.INSURANCE: He provides another weapon and insurance against Julio Jones’ foot and Roddy White’s age. There’s no guarantee that Jones will return to the level of play he was ascending to before his injury. White is 32 and turns 33 in November. He’s not going to play forever.

3.WEAPON: He’s had three 1,000-yard seasons. Last season he amassed 1,332 yards and nine touchdowns and went to the Pro Bowl.

4.RETURNER: He can also return punts.

5.ENEMY: The Falcons wouldn’t have to face him if he’s on their team. Back in 2010, he almost single-handedly scorched the Falcons. He scored on a 31-yard run on an end around and a 34-yard reception, before Dunta Robinson leveled him with a helmet-to-helmet hit. The hit knocked both players out of the game.

gang member or not, he's not going to be cheap. too much baggage, presumed or not, to pass the Falcons Filter.

he'll end up in Oakland. they'll pay for him, possibly in more ways than one! POW! :twisted:

I listened to an interview of him and all he did was yell into the microphone in that nasally whine of his. He has a voice for a cloistered monastery. He wont be getting a TV gig anytime soon

He's truly an odd man. Reminds me of a character off of a non-existent SNL skit that goes on too long. Who knew this is how the Grim Reaper of Journalism would be?
