Unfortunately economics play in also. He under a rookie deal with a minimal cap number. I know it’s not a popular take and yes they could technically save cash / cap cutting him but you then have to add a body. Let’s be candid he’s not getting another contract in GBif they can't see that after three years in the nfl, they have bigger problems than draft evaluation.
I don't think any get cut they won't give up on them.I think he's a cut, along with Jackson and Sternberger.
100% true. But even if you take out the spread game and go back 30 years only a very small percentage of college players make it in the pro's. Guy's are bigger,stronger and faster in the NFL. You have to work your butt off everyday off season just to stay in the mix unless your a top 10 guy on a team and even then someone is always gunning for your spot.Good morning,
Apparently, my comments on this are being misconstrued and that's not the case. Very quickly and simply, just because Player A or B regardless of position or team drafted was a terror in college does NOT mean that will automatically transfer to the NFL.
If Joe WR played in the SEC, He faced 3-4 players defensively that had X speed, could tackle great etc, now EVERY week they'll be 9-10 players on the field all the time that match those skills. So you're looking for players not with all those physical traits but it's up to your scouts and personal staff to find the guys with the intangibles that sets them apart.
Also, do NOT underestimate the lack of skills from players who have never ever played in anything but a spread offense or defended the same... it's a big factor regardless of your wanting to believe it. Have seen that firsthand and heard many many coaches speak on the subject.
Now let's just cut the bullcrap here, What has Brian G shown you the past 3 seasons as far as finding those guys that get anyone's dander up? I realize that for some it's a killjoy but that's the cold water over the head reality. That's it..my only point.
I’m ok looking for diamonds in the rough. Bigger issue with Gute is that, when presented with several clean, cut and polished diamonds, he somehow still pulls zirconia.100% true. But even if you take out the spread game and go back 30 years only a very small percentage of college players make it in the pro's. Guy's are bigger,stronger and faster in the NFL.

Gute has a lot of TT in him, always looking for a diamond in the rough. Great when he's right but big let down when he's not.
