I'm not sure if I can say enough things for this to qualify for a Fan post, I have been chastised before but I can't remember if that was because I didn't type enough or if my opinion that, pre draft speculation was a complete waste of our time and only led to disappointment, was an unacceptable opinion. but, whatevz! I shall not be deterred!
I have not seen anyone speculate upon what a great signing this could be for our team. Not only is the kid a talented prospect but we have a hole at the position. I know Mills did a good enough job last year and I am not interested in what PFF says about him. (My favorite Mills moment was early in the year when his blocking to the whistle sealed the game by drawing an unsportsmanlike) The fact remains he broke his foot in the last game of the year and I think that might set him back a bit.
Furthermore and perhaps more to the point. we have the best environment for such a young man. Our Coach does not allow hazing!! That's huge in my opinion. also, do you remember what Brandon Marshall said about the incident? Its a big deal, If you don't remember...
I think Kyle Long is a pretty awesome dude who would never treat J Martin with the kind of disrespect he suffered in Miami. It would be amazing to have those two young guys locking down our right side for years to come.
AmIRight?! come on guys, wouldn't that be a perfect signing? does anyone else see this move coming?
my prediction (wishful thinking) is that our new Right Tackle is gonna be Jonathon Martin. BOoM!
