Report: Texans plan to release Brian Cushing
« on: February 18, 2018, 04:31:42 PM »
Some baggage both with injuries and off the field stuff.  Any interest from GB perspective or should we put a fork in him?

Contract details: http://www.spotrac.com/nfl/houston-texans/brian-cushing-5685/

Career stats: http://www.nfl.com/player/briancushing/80421/careerstats

Obvious injury issues, and he's not going to get younger or healthier. PED's also. So, personally, a "name", but one whose time has come and gone. When we are discussing whether CMIII id worth his contract, should the Packers add an older, injury prone player? I wouldn't.

Definitely. Here are two guys that might have some interest in GB. Peters more than Martin, but what the heck, they're apparently available, its the off season, so why not opine on whether either of these guys could help the team, without causing undue problems.

Now, this next one is more touchy, as it would require a trade, and exactly what is the backstory of his problems in KC? But a good CB would be a good addition for the Packers. Whether it should be Peters is another question.

Peters was kicked off the team at the U of Washington. Missed his Senior year and was a 1st round pick.  Peters is a top talent, but you better have a babysitter.  To say he marches to his own drum is an understatement.
