The Plain Dealer reports that we are somewhat close to signing Mack, but not as close to signing Robiskie, Massaquoi, or Veikune.
What's the deal. Eric?!?
Rookies are supposed to report to camp on Friday the 24th, but it doesn't look like we'll be able to get all of these guys in by then. I personally would love to see all four of these rookies on the field early and often if they can digest the playbooks. Getting them in to camp will certainly help them adjust to the NFL game and can't hurt their chances of seeing the field.
Mack is talented and he is probably one of the 5 best OL we have.
Our WRs were really bad last year. Either one of those guys should be able to push Steptoe down the depth chart.
Our pass rush was pathetic last year, as were our linebackers. Veikune could help.
July 24th is the earliest reporting date in the entire NFL. Mangini/Kokutnus (sp) don't seem to have been working too diligently to bring these guys in on time considering contract proposals haven't even been exchanged with Robiskie and Massaquoi yet.
So let me ask you all:
Is it important for the rookies to report on time--a full week before the veterans?
Yes, we need to sign all of them (295 votes)
Yes, we need to sign Mack (10 votes)
Yes, we need to sign the recievers (18 votes)
Yes, we need to sign Veikune (0 votes)
No, it isn't a big deal. They don't need a full extra week. (32 votes)
