    It's possible that he failed his physical. Pretty sure he's still rehabbing that torn quad

    Just an odd notion that. Cam is a backup type player (as it is), which I personally think McLendon is as well... Not a fan at all. With Carrington, we would at least have gotten a solid starter. Guees he can still end up signing.
    However much you think you know about football, rest assured that Skip Bayless knows more!

    Seems like such a stupid decision...

    Cam sucks
    McClendon was actually good last year

    Carrington has a high ceiling at a position off need

    Steelers knew that though. He was never ever going to be ready before TC. Unless he is worse off than what the Bills med. Team thought.

    Need more details but hopefully the door isn't shut. He left without a contract but it could still happen later.

    Wow, so we sign a guy who is lazy and a backup/rotational guy, but can't reach a deal with a starting 3-4 LE.

    Put that way it is stupid BUT it does not take into account the salary paid to each. They may have decided that Cam near the league minimum is better than Carrington at significantly more. Not saying I agree but just trying to understand their thought process. On its face, Carrington would be a much better sign. He has been a disappointment, but at least it was due to playing in the wrong system and injury. Cam is just not very good.

    I have a hard time believing this is about money... I mean unless Carrington's agent is a fool. Your client is coming off a missed season, and has only shown a brief glimmer of his potential, and he has a chance to join a team that is a perfect fit, has a history of developing the players at the position, and has a WIDE OPEN staring position for you.

    I'm not being rational. I'm emotional involved lol. I've wanted this guy for 4 years.
