    Douglas Released??

    I just read that hugh douglas of the jags was released. Do any of you think the rams will make a push for him.

    I wouldn't. He could (and by that I mean possibly) start at RDE for us, but Fisher will give us more value. Between Fisher, Flowers & Hargrove we already have our future RDE on the roster. I think Douglas would be an expensive roll of the dice.

    he is old and washed up. lets save our money and hope a solid OL comes up on the waiver wire.

    I think Hugh could be a huge help to the defense. I say we go get him if there's nobody out there to help with the o-line.

    just curious as to why you think he would be such a huge help to the defense? he only had 3.5 sacks last year and was horrible. he wasnt any better this year in preseason. is it just because he was good a couple of years ago in philly?

    if we get no help on the OL, id rather us go for LB and CB depth before getting a DE like hugh.

    Like most things, it depends on the price. If he is looking for big money, I'd pass.

    Douglas would draw more attention on the right side than Fisher, Hargrove, Flowers or whoever else we plan to plug in over there. The less attention on Leonard Little, the more pressure we get on the quarterback. Face it, Bryce Fisher doesn't exactly put fear into opposing quarterbacks.

    Moot point. He just signed back with the Eagles, terms undisclosed so far.

    One year deal worth slightly more than the league minimum, I believe.


    EDIT: From PFT.com, "Douglas will receive a $150,000 signing bonus and a base salary of $700,000. Incentives based on sacks and making the Pro Bowl account for up to a total of $2.55 million additional money, enabling Douglas to earn up to $3.4 million if he has a monster year in Philly. Specifically, Douglas will get $150,000 if he has six sacks, another $700,000 if he has 10 sacks, and another $800,000 with at least 12 sacks. He gets $150,000 if he leads the team in sacks, and $800,000 if he gets back to the Pro Bowl."

    What a shame. Guess we'll have to pray for a break out performance from our Defensive End by Committee.
