    I am not sure how that is supposed to work.

    These numbers do not account for any cuts that were made that were FAs signed back in March or the expanded practice squad, etc., but on average nearly 17 free agent players were signed per team. Some teams turned over half or more of their active roster with FA players (like 26, 27, or 29 players). Denver signed 11 free agents in March. https://ftw.usatoday.com/gallery/whi...on-free-agency

    No team builds entirely from the draft anymore. It really isn't possible.

    Besides, we have released players we've drafted in the past who weren't trouble for us but then became trouble while on other teams - Cody Latimer comes to mind. We've also seen people who we drafted be big problems only to turn things around like Von Miller.

    Free Agency is not the problem.

    Regarding Gordon, outside of his contract complaints with the Chargers, was he known to be a problem? I can't find that info.

    71 Mph in a 31 MMph. Freaking stupid.

      Gordon never had an issue here at UW. He was huge in the community, a fan favorite not only because he was an amazing UW running back - just just a cool fun guy.

      I'm shocked and disappointed at the news.

        I’d say it’s probably drunk logic at its worst. I’m drunk and want to go to this place but I don’t want to get COVID or violate COVID protocols so I’ll drive by myself and the faster I drive the quicker I get back. Something along those lines

          If Lindsay is ready to go, Gordon may struggle to get his place back.

          Disappointed in Gordon. A veteran should not make this kind of mistake.

            On Melvin Gordon, Broncos coach Vic Fangio said the running back was sent home Wednesday. Fangio added the team is considering additional discipline to anything that eventually comes from the NFL. Fangio said, when asked whether Gordon would be active for Sunday's game against New England or if Gordon would disciplined, Fangio said "everything is open.''

                Considering everything including allowing him to play on Sunday? Really?

                  I don't know about the Covid angle, but I agree about "drunk logic". Never too drunk to drive (my parents were alcoholics).

                  If he has a problem, I hope he gets help.

                    If he passes all his COVID tests I don’t see why he wouldn’t. He let Kareem Jackson played from his arrest in September to his suspension for the last 2 games of the season. At least Gordon lasted until October before he got his DUI.

                        Ha. The funny thing is Vic starts of by suggesting that we might impose stricter penalties on Gordon than that expected from the League, only to say straight afterwards that he might be considered for Sunday.

                              I do find it strange though considering what’s already happened with Jackson. Team fines generally don’t get announced so maybe there’s a team fine that’s going to be levied but usually when a team says they’re going to punish a player, it’s almost always a suspension. I imagine there might be some other issues that haven’t been reported for Vic to mention additional punishment from the team.

                                The NFL will. A DUI is set at a 3 game suspension under the new CBA, violating their COVID rules on top of it would obviously make it worse and could increase the length of his suspension.
                                Great points. I didn't even think of the Covid aspect on top of it.

                                Oof
