Re: Edwards-Raiders rumour a dud

The club is chasing him. That means we must have an offer in the general ballpark of what he’s worth. Possibly with the hope that a starting fullback spot here over a wing or ressies spot there will be the difference. I wouldn’t be surprised if it doesn’t come off though. But the Panthers have no r...

QB class this year looks very ordinary. Foles would be a decent fit in Kubiak's offence.
