If troy comes back and plays no more than a few games and gets hurt again, there is a very good possibility he would be cut. He has been very injury prone the last 2 years.

no he hasn't.

Troy started 14 games in 2010 and 16 games last season. how does that make him "very injury prone" the last 2 years?

Now go look up how many games he left early due to injury those years. He "Started" 2 games this year...yet has what, like 10 minutes of play time?

  5. Harrison- $10,035,000
Scary when you think that exactly one of those guys is meeting expectations this season.

Harrison will be a cap casualty.

Troy will rehab, and play two more good years.
Agreed, there are a lot of good safeties. I like Elam and Vaccaro. Also need to address at least one linebacker early. Need both outside and inside.

There are a ton of people(A lot of them on this forum) that think if Troy were so banged up he were in a wheelchair, it would still be worth 10mil a year to have him parked on our sidelines. The more extreme among them would likely want him to be recognized as defensive MVP.

That's laughable- he is taking up space on the roster and being paid to watch games. I'm sick of hearing about him and how he keeps getting injured. The wind blows and Troy is injured- hell if you look at him just right he will probably fall down.

Not saying I disagree with you. If I were running the show, he'd be taking about a 60% pay cut. But we are in the vast minority on that kind of opinion.

That would be a good option too- yeah we are. I get flamed and called unnecessary things when I talk about glass Troy. Haha- people go as far as to say I'm not even a real fan for wanting Troy to be cut, nice logic right?
