  • Ladarius Green

    Hey he's a free agent....


    Steelers released TE Ladarius Green.
    Green was cut loose with the "failed physical" designation. Signed to a "four-year, $20 million" contract last March, Green was already out of guaranteed money. He was limited to six games as he battled through head and ankle issues last season. Yet to be cleared from the league's concussion protocol, Green has been dogged by retirement rumors since last summer. Turning 27 later this month, Green has always possessed mouthwatering upside, but was blocked by Antonio Gates in San Diego and his health in Pittsburgh. His NFL future is unclear. The Steelers are moving forward with Jesse James, Xavier Grimble and David Johnson at tight end.

        He should retire. Its not worth the long term effects hes certain to have when hes older. Maybe he can switch to rugby.

          Even Rugby would be bad. My son is in soccer and trying out for a club team and I was teaching him juggling and he was confused..."we arent allowed to hit the ball with our head"

            No headers? Wow lol

            Rugby is a little better imo because the head isnt brain isnt rattling around in the helmet. Its greatly helped my son. Jeremy turned down football scholarships and bailed his senior year of football to focus on Rugby. And get a grip on his headaches. We still think his headaches were more about inhaling the fake turf which is basically made up of ground up rubber. And produces a gas.

                    That stuff is BAD news:

                    One of the goalies that was a few years older than my daughter was recently diagnosed with cancer - and they think it might be related to turf.

                      Thats terrible. Ive heard of a few cases of this happening to soccer players. My son would come home from practice with headaches. Then i went to a practice and stood on the sideline. The smell of tar was terrible. I went home with a headache. I knew it was the gas off the turf causing it. MRI showed no concussion signs on my son.

                        Green had a lot of physical talent but could not stay healthy, could not block, could not run sharp routes. The health thing is not his fault and I hope he quits denying the seriousness of the concussions he has had. The blocking and route running are his fault. He had a lot of opportunities to work on both. In essence, his niche was as a huge WR who could only run a few routes. Steelers uncharacteristically blew it on Green.

                          I read that he cost the Steelers $6M for 6 games, and a 6th round comp pick they would have gotten if they didn't sign him... probably their worst FA signing ever. At least for them it didn't damage them long term like some of the signings by the Chargers.

                            And yet I still remember people pissed we didn't sign him. At least we managed to dodge one terrible FA signing.
