Only 27 years old. Wonder if the Steelers could be interested. Money will have something to do with it I'm sure.


Timing is odd for the Iggles. Fans scratching their heads over it around here.

Colbert has always said they are on the lookout to improve this team. Lets hope he at least puts in a call.

Not a fit. He is a 2-down player.

I think Kendricks a better option than either Fort or Matakevich. Contract money is the obstacle I see with Kendricks. Rumor is that he wouldn't agree to a pay cut or restructure. Something. Was scheduled to get just over $7.6Mil for the season. Post June cut saves the iggles like almost $6Mil.

Now that he's free, Kendricks figures to generate plenty of interest on the open market, perhaps even from the cross-state Steelers, who are still in search of a replacement for Ryan Shazier. The Falcons were a potential trade partner in the offseason of 2017, per Rapoport, but they've since assembled a speedy, three-man linebacker corps of their own. http://www.nfl.com/news/story/0ap300000 ... -kendricks

The athletically gifted Kendricks has had an up-and-down career since being selected in the second round by Philadelphia in 2012. He posted 86 tackles, four sacks, four fumble recoveries and three interceptions in his second season, but he hasn't been able to reach those same statistical heights in the years since as his playing time gradually declined. http://www.espn.com/nfl/story/_/id/2357 ... low-injury

He's a two down player because Philly always pulled him on 3rd down. He and the defensive coordinator did not get along well...let's just put it that way. But, physically he has traits to be a good coverage LBer.

I would take a very serious look at him. If either Vince or Bostic go down, we are fcked at ILB. Let Kendricks come in and may the best men win the starter roles and go from there.

As things stand today, this probably makes me more nervous than anything else heading into the 2018 season (considering Bostic's injury history)

We really need to shore up ILB by adding 1 more solid player to the mix.

@FieldYates
The Raiders have waived CB Senquez Golson, per league source. Short experiment for the former Steeler draft pick. https://twitter.com/FieldYates/status/9 ... 6957714432

Believe he was cut as a result of the Raiders trading for Hackenberg from the Jets. I believe the Raiders traded a 2019 7th RND pick for the QB who never played a snap during the 2017 season. I think Golson likely tries to hang around on some team as a backup. This dude needs to hang 'em up IMHO.

Shane Ray, anyone? He's had his fans on here, as I recall. Chubb, I suppose, made him irrelevant in Denver.

Broncos OLB Shane Ray is getting second opinion, but as of now, another surgery on his left wrist has been recommended, per source. It would not be season-ending if he does get the surgery. #9sports https://twitter.com/MikeKlis/status/1004072388701687809
You know what they say about thin wrists.....
