It's too bad, I'm too good....
They wanted to develop him, then take the time to develop the guy. They invested not only a 4th round pick in him, but a later pick as well in order to move up to get him. I don't want Nassib going anywhere just yet.
The Freeman pick-up is an invite to camp nothing more. None of these guys are automatically on the team. Painter is probably history already, and won't survive the first couple of cuts if Eli is healthy. If Freeman shows the form he had in Tampa when he had a fantastic season, then you've got a really good back-up. If Freeman's developed some critical flaw that can't be fixed, all you've got to do is cut him. I think in either Freeman situation, Nassib is going to be given at least one more year to develop. It might be another three QB year, and I don't have a problem with that like some guys do. Eli's getting older, and being three deep at QB isn't a bad thing.
