I am calling BS Madden!
God I wouldn't mind watching him becoming armed into oblivion for Mut 21 coins the rest of his profession. I really don't think I be pissed it came down to us having to exchange him and we are 100% blameless from the Fitzpatrick situation. I mean come on, if we had him, how awful would our secondary be? It's not so much that he abandoned. It's when he must Pittsburgh, all the bullshit he was talking. He couldn't stand being used in flexible roles but when he got his manner he morphed into Mr. team first talking about how he is ready to play wherever they need him. He did not wish to do the dirty work involved with being a security. He just wanted to keep his jersey clean drifting the secondary getting picks to fulfill his stat sheet. He is a diva.
There is nothing wrong with what he has said, it makes sense. Pittsburgh put him at a more defined role as FS and he flourished. Later on in this article it cites how his stats dipped because his way wasn't throwing. That caused him to wish to become even more versatile and therefore harder to defend. I am grateful Minkah discovered what works for him. At the end of the day people will make judgements in their view, and I just think he wanted no more part of a rebuild.
He could not buy in although he was dressed to be the chess piece with the Dolphins. He continued two weeks until he asked for a transaction, couldn't make it even a quarter of this year. That he stopped on the team. His role on the defense's problem proved to be a convenient reason to eliminate what was likely to be long term rebuild and a poor team. He took it and saw an out. I don't dislike him. I dislike the way I perceive he forced his way off the team. However, as Minkah says
It's a part of the job. They traded three other gamers, also." Yeah, business is business. Nothing better for business than forcing a trade famous for great defenses. In addition to getting to play with his preferred function. Alongside a lot of first round picks all on the defensive lineup. It is an excellent alternative to playing a role he did not wish to on a team embarking on a multi-year rebuild. Now that he obtained what he desired he's conveniently prepared to be versatile so that he can keep padding his stat sheet late. But he'll always come off as a buttocks to me.
I think the problem is you're thinking that him speaking about versatility means playing a bunch of places where he's considering versatility where he can roam the field like Polamalu and Ed Reed had the liberty to do, not versatility as in drama with a considerable amount of SS/LB/SCB/CB/FS like he did with us. There was a post where he specifically said that he"Liked the flexibility playing safety brings" or something along those lines, I'll edit this post when I find it. That doesn't mean loving to perform a bunch of different places. That's a terrible search for my debate that is defending. It feels like he's trying to talk himself up but it is cheap Madden 21 coins ironic he said that, especially.
