Seems to have a chip the size of a boulder on his shoulder and I like it.

The more I hear about him the more I like this guy, plenty of talent and a serious drive to succeed. We might actually have ourselves a cornerback at last...

He's a true bonus. If he heals... he's going to be a starter soon enough...

If true, I like the move. This guy is too good to risk reinjuring his knee. I hope that it is a precautionary thing rather than a setback.

With the new CBA players can now be added to the active roster as late as week 13 if they go on the PUP before they start training camp (Remember Kelly wasn't eligible last year ).

Chase still can't play the first 6 weeks but if he's close they'll have a extra month before they have to move him to IR or activate him. Again the new CBA controls a lot of off field decisions. The PUP no longer means get right or go on IR when the season starts. Now teams will simply move players from the Active PUP to the Reserve PUP right before the season, but teams will also have the option of putting one player on IR if they start the season on the Active roster and bring them back after they have been on IR for eight weeks.



As far as Minniefield goes, it's before camp starts so he is on what is called the Active PUP, when the season starts they can put him on the Active roster, the Reserve PUP, or "temp" IR and he could still play this year as late as week 13, or put put him on IR and stow him away until next year. Anyway you look at it he's a third round talent that walked in.


It's a good move, it's like throwing in this year's 2nd round pick to luck up the drafting of RGIII when you have a" untapped but educated in your scheme" Jarvis Jenkins :D in your back pocket.
