I agree with you BFF.  The recent failure to recruit and retain a sufficient number of capable offensive linemen is a major concern.  The Fordham recruit's decision isn't the whole problem it is just a single example. It appears, however, that the issue has been recognized and a new position (Assistant AD/Director of Player Personnel) was created and filled this summer by the re-hire of coach Patrick Hatch.  He is a go-getter.  I am hopeful we see improvement in this area with the next recruiting class. For now, however, we just have to cross our fingers and hold our breath.

that is very sad news about Coxson.  cant believe he took a crack like that on the third day of practice.  glad to see that his agent was able to squeeze some money out of the Packers for injury suffered in camp.  I heard that the Packers were trying to weasel out of paying him anything, claiming he had a preexisting condition, or some BS like that.

Your are correct; they said he did not disclose his past injuries..

But his agent was able to; they should due a complete review of each player prior to being in camp.

more on Coxson and his retirement, from Washington Post.  turns out the GB Packers were fight him over $5,000!  can you believe that?

Adrian Coxson, an undrafted free agent rookie out of Stony Brook, had hoped to catch on with the Green Bay Packers after signing with the team in May. But after getting carted off the Packers’ practice field on Aug. 1 following a huge hit, the wide receiver is now changing his career plans.

Coxson, who suffered a Grade 3 concussion on the third day of training camp in his rookie season, is retiring at the age of 23.

“I’m retiring because I’m still having symptoms and my health is more important to me than the game of football,” Coxson said in a telephone interview with the National Football Post. “It’s been recommended to me by two neurologists and two doctors to retire from football. The next hit to my head could possibly kill me or be life damaging. This last one could be life damaging. It has taken a great toll on me. This concussion was a bad one. A Grade 3 concussion is real serious.”

The Packers released Coxson on Aug. 17, citing “failure to disclose physical condition” as the reason. But Jonathan Herbst, Coxson’s agent, told ESPN.com that they disputed that claim and reached an injury settlement with the team, which also allowed him to keep the $5,000 signing bonus he received earlier this year.

“I think he’s making the right decision,” Herbst told ESPN on Monday. “His health is more important than football.”

Coxson told the National Football Post that he has no regrets.

“I take pride in that, I take pride in being able to function right now from this injury,” he said. “I’m concerned about my health and I’m concerned about how healthy I am and I want to get to as close to 100 percent as I can get. I’m concerned about the outcome of this whole injury. It was a bad one.”

thanks for that story on Coxson.  up til that story, I was not aware that he was hit in a drill and had no idea who hit him.  at least he got his degree from SBU and can move on with his life.  from his twitter account, he seems very dedicated to his young son.

This to me makes is sound like he got a LOT more than 5K. Injury settlements during direct team-related injuries can be in the tens to hundreds of thousands, especially if that injury leaves a player "permanently disabled" (read: retired). The biggest issue is discussing how much potential he had to make an NFL roster and get paid real money. My hope is he walked away with enough money to support his son and get a post-grad degree so he can get a solid job and build a good career.

Nova's loss points to the deficiency of being too dependent on a single offensive player, Robertson.  with him gone for now, they are a completely different team.  on the good side for them, its a non conf loss.
