I want Keisel back but it is a difficult decision because Heyward makes him completely expendable.

Heyward is the best player on the defensive line. (I love how people are calling him a bust already).
THERE'S TWO ENDS. KEISEL PLAYS RIGHT AND HEYWARD LEFT.

Heyward could play LE but let's not forget that Hood is an absolute beast and probably the hardest worker on the team. They should all play 1/3 of the snaps and stay fresh. Heyward playing both sides so Hood and Keisel don't have to move.

His contract is up I think, so no "release". They will let him go and some bottom dwelling team will pick him up and overpay him, so he likely will not come back.

Been here before by letting Ward, Farrior go and forcing Hampton to have a big pay cut. This time they likely will be fine with money by letting Harrison and Hampton go and forcing Keisel to have a big pay cut.

So you believe Keisel is worth 4x worth Heyward? C'mon

Sure he's older, but he had a solid season once again. Thank you I want to keep him over McThug.

Also, if you want to cut Woodley/Keisel then you're just plain dumb.

Thanks have a nice day.
Woodley is overrated and overpaid. Kiesel is done and has been for the last couple of seasons. Unfortunately, they cannot cut Woodely and his absurd contract.

You only need to NTs. Mclendon to start and play most downs. Ta`amu would play the backup roll. Hampton is little more than a fat person at this point in his career. Hampton did not have a solid season. A few highlights mentioned by TV announcers does not equate to a solid season. You have to cut money somewhere. Why not cut the old, done and overpaid?

That's just not true. Heyward is not even a beast... yet. Hood is not nor likely ever will be.

Woodley is our best LB when he isn't being a bum. And if Keisel is washed up then all our DE's must be garbage.

Why cut Hampton?

He's too old.
He can't run.
He's too slow.
He's too heavy.
His presence impedes the development of younger D-linemen.

All we heard last preseason was how McClendon was going to surprise everyone at NT.
He never got the chance.
