    Vontaze Burfict hasn't recieved any team invites

    According to his agent Charles Price Burfict hasn't gotten any invites for workouts or visits to team facilities
    it appears the strategy is to give him a shot as an free agent that way he will have to work harder to make a team . I gotta say that i'm a little surprised i thought someone whould have drank the kool-aid

    Someone still might. Any team with with 4 7th round picks might pick him if he was still there just so they wouldn't need to coax him away from some other team when everyone runs for the unsigned players.

    We'll use a 7th on him. A project for Mike Tomlin as a servant leader/Mentor.

    While I don't believe we will draft him because this position will have already been addressed in the earlier rounds, it wouldn't shock me to see it happen(in the 7th) for the simple reason that Tomlin knows he would have a lot of very strong, powerful mentors on the defense.

    Tomlin is a Servant Leader. Its a low risk chance to help a gifted young man. They took the undrafted risk with Saunders so why not a compensatory pick with Taz?

    saunders played well said all the right things and f-ed up anyway so for this reason and the ben and tone stuff i think they will pass they don't like negative press

    it was adderall with saunders, seriously not a big deal and if it is in the eyes of the team that is tomlin being a hardass at the cost of the team cause saunders is a good player

    We passed on Lagaurette Blount three times... Burfict is in the same world.. Burfict will play like Blount - Strong, Tough and with attitude. But i think he will be gone in the 6th by some team.. A cheap ILB that will play better than Foote. Come on man...
