    Hm? Brady missed an entire year with a leg injury when a rusher fell into his shin. They changed the rules on going low at a qb because of that. He also got his job because of a wicked hit put Bledsoe out.

    Devin should do what he wants to do, but right now his stock may never be higher. An injury or merely a nagging one could derail his senior season and lead to a much lower selection which greatly reduces your earnings for 3-4 years when you have to hope to make a major splash to earn a second large contract. The average NFL career is about that long. Do I think such things will happen to him? Nope. However, such things have happened. Look at a Jake Butt or Jaylon Smith. The only thing you're guaranteed in the NFL is your first contract's signing bonus. That's it. If he chooses to return he'll have incalculable equity of goodwill and love from LSU faithful across the state. He'll secure his place as the greatest defensive linebacker ever. Right there with a Glenn Dorsey potentially who returned and won a championship despite being cheap shotted by Auburn and swept every major award. If that's important enough to him we should all fully support that decision as we should support his decision to leave if that is what he decides. Hopefully LSU will be able to take out an insurance policy for him. Or help him do so on his own if they cannot.

    Devin definitely represents everything good about college football and what a true leader is of young men regardless of his ultimate choice.

    Well, you know he’s been injured, just able to get through it and keep playing. LBs initiate a few more collisions than QBs, too;)

    Life is full of what ifs, but if you’re smart you learn that some things have more risk, and you either take better precautions or make other decisions to offset those risks. If he was an outfielder in baseball and wanted to stay another year, that is much less risk for injury than LB playing SEC football. As far as freedom, these are all just opinions, dudes free to make whatever decision he wants. I’ll be a fan of his either way and wish nothing but continued success!
