How does John Thornton still have a roster spot anyways? He was horrible this past year.
Looks like releasing Adams does open up a full time starting spot for Peko, but he won't be playing next to anyone good. In fact, your 6th round pick Toeaina is probably your second best DT behind Peko. You may have gotten quite a steal that late in the draft with him. He'll probably play a lot this season.
this is probably a case of sam adams eating himself out of the league. it also probably gives fanene and toeaina a chance to get some PT at the other DT because it shows that they are FINALLY ready to get rid of some washed up veterans and use some of the young talent theyve got.
Well, to be fair, we did also sign Kendrick Allen. If healthy, he should be a solid member of the rotation. I certainly would rather have gotten rid of Thornton, but Sam Adams is old and out of shape, so I don't mind this move. He wasn't really that good last season.
ive always thought thornton was a decent player(not saying he should still be here) but at least he's a high character guy and a leader in the locker room. if nothing else he should give whoever is coming up behind him some good education. he better be gone next year though!
