      I can see him being a network guy. Smooth talker and very articulate. Coaching is hard work. Long hours.

    ESPN’s Josina Anderson reports free agent CB Alterraun Verner has a workout scheduled for next week.
    Anderson did not say which team he’ll be working out for. Verner visited the Jaguars in May but nothing came of it.

    It’ll be really sad to see VJax in another uniform. His performance has diminished, but his value in the locker room and the community is still worth keeping him in a backup role with the cap space we still have.

    Verner was surely not worth the cap hit with his last contract. I wouldn’t mind a more team friendly deal for him as well.

    As the article states, Myers is more of the outdated old-school TE and doesn’t have much value compared to what we have on the roster.

    Counting down the days till August 8th!

      I wish I could agree with you on VJ, but I can’t. We need the best 53 to be on this team. Things like community involvement and locker room leadership are nice, but they’re bonus items. They’re the kinds of things you love to see from your good players, but they aren’t enough in and of themselves to keep him here. Come Sunday, it doesn’t help the team that a guy works with veterans, or the homeless, or whatever other good things he might do.

      Josh McCown was a fantastic worker and a tremendous leader, and he was committed to helping out in huge ways in the community. He was also a terrible football player, and none of those non football things helped the team do anything other than embarrass itself come Sunday.

      I’m not saying that stuff isn’t awesome, but at the end of the day, we have to employ the best football players we can find. If at the age of 34 VJ isn’t interested in truly battling to try to win a roster spot as a backup wide receiver on this team at a price that reflects that situation, then there’s really no reason to bring him in, in my opinion.

      Go ask Bill Belichick what sentimentality was worth when he traded Logan Mankins, or when he traded Richard Seymour, or when he declined the option on Vince Wilfork. I love VJ, and I appreciate everything he did for this team, and even more so for this community. And I hope he will continue to contribute in those ways. But that’s probably all it should be at this point.
