Bummer to see ARob and Poz exit Jacksonville just as they appear to be a team that could be regular playoff team.

Read article on Poz announcement - basically said he doesn't feel he can play up to his standards anymore - 11 years as a Pro LB who was on the field and made a ton of tackles - that will wear a body down.

Great college player and solid pro hope he enjoys the next phase in his life. Got my "31" jersey to remember him.

One of mine as well, a Class Act all the way. But, that is what I expect from our guys.

If you haven't seen it, here is his letter to the fan base in Jacksonville announcing his retirement:

Ran in to him after a Blue White game when my boys were young (I think it was between his Sophomore and Junior seasons). He talked to my boys for about 5 minutes and was as nice to them as I've heard he is to everyone. Since that day, he was a favorite of both mine and the boys and hope he finds his way back to Happy Valley to take in a few games.

Daquan Jones just got paid. $21M/3 years, $14M guaranteed.

Nice! Apparently, he has been putting together a nice little career for himself with the Titans. Who knew!?!

Great link wittier

I know PP has stated he wants to spend more time with his family but seems like he would make a great youth football coach

In less happy news, Matt Millen has a rare disease and will need a heart transplant.

Fourth Round: DaeSean Hamilton to Denver
Fourth Round: Troy Apke to Washington
Fifth Round: Marcus Allen to Pittsburgh
Sixth Round: Christian Campbell to Arizona

I think seven other players signed free agent contracts.

Six players drafted, the most since the 2010 draft. Both drafts followed consecutive 11-win seasons and a conference championship.
