Supremely overrated by a lot of people. June is a guy that puts up impressive tackle statistics because of his speed but he makes those tackles far off the line of scrimmage. Simply not worth the money he's going to be asking for.
I sure as hell hope the Colts aren't the ones overpaying for him. I think June should go to the Vikings & start @ WSLB, EJ in the Middle, Leber/Greenway battle for SSLB. I think that would make sense, but then salary comes into question yet again.
He is getting little interest because he is very undersized, and teams question if he can be productive outside of the system in Indy. Personnally, I think he will end up going back to Indy, where he will get paid much less than he would have expected.
I was essentially ready to help him pack his bags, to say farewell to his broken tackles and frequent hiccups in decision-making, but I suppose I wouldn't mind him back to the Colts if the price is right. The Colts have managed to sign MLB Gary Brackett and SLB Rob Morris to very cost-effective contracts, already.
June has put up excellent numbers in the last 3 years because WLB is a critical part of Coach Dungy's defense - of all the LB positions, WILL is more often than not in position to make the play. If the Colts had a better LB at WILL, say Lance Briggs or even veteran Derrick Brooks, he'd put even better numbers and make the defense better.
But as I said, I'd welcome June back if the price is right.
Pugnacity, testosterone, truculence, and belligerence.
