    Maybe the Saints should draft some white defensive players rather than spending draft picks on future busts like the one below:

    Saints placed LB Stephone Anthony on injured reserve with a knee injury, ending his season.
    A 2015 first-round pick, Anthony followed up a mostly down rookie campaign with an all down sophomore season in which he was ultimately benched. Anthony still has time to turn it around, but he is looking dangerously like a bust. Next season will be make-or-break for the young linebacker. Dec 20 - 10:53 AM

    Must be nice to be a black player and play when you want to. This bum was a 1st round pick in 2014.

    Bears DC Vic Fangio indicated CB Kyle Fuller (knee, I.R.) doesn't have the desire to return this season.

    Wednesday is the final day the Bears have to make a decision on activating Fuller from I.R. after he returned three weeks ago, but it doesn't like that's going to happen. "Any time a guy's hurt, there's three stages to getting back to the field," Fangio said. "One is you've got to get medical clearance. Two, the player's got to say he's ready to go and feels confident and he's champing at the bit to go play. A has happened. B hasn't. So C is a non-issue." The Bears are expected to try and trade Fuller for whatever they can get for him this offseason.

    Much ballyhooed rookie Myles Jack played in 16 games this season, starting 10.

    He finished with a grand total of 22 tackles, which is pathetic.

    Jack is shaping up to be a bust.

    Nick Kwiatkoski on the other hand did not play much until after the second half of the season and he made an obvious impact on his team.

    But Kwiatkoski is just an effort guy, bringing his lunchpail and relying on film study. Myles Jack on the other hand is just brimming with mouth-watering UPSIDE!!! lol!

    Dion Jordan - the running joke of the NFL

    The Miami Herald's Armando Salguero reports Dolphins DE Dion Jordan has been having "issues" again and won't return to the team in 2017.

    Jordan got hurt during his latest suspension, requiring two knee surgeries. He wound up never playing for the Dolphins in 2016. Salguero reports Jordan's latest "issues" will effectively get him released. He'll be a free agent soon.

    Jordan, the colossal-super-mega bust that appeared in only 26 games (producing 46 total tackles and 3 sacks) before being suspended for PED's for the past 2 years, made over $15 million in guaranteed money...

    http://www.spotrac.com/nfl/miami-dolphins/dion-jordan-12283/

    Yet another of the hundreds of black players that were hyped to high heaven, taken in the 1st round, made tens of millions for mediocre play, yet are never mentioned in the "All-Time NFL Bust" countdown shows. Nay, those honors will forever go to the likes of Ryan Leaf, Tony Manadrich, Heath Shuler, and Brian Bosworth.

    The anti-white Caste Masters are still getting mileage out of picking on Bosworth (literally drafted 30 years ago), who was recently mocked by Bo Jackson in a commercial for the "Kia Sorento"...



    Why isn't Bo Jackson considered a "bust?" He was the 1st overall pick, he only played 4 seasons, he never won a Superbowl, he missed plenty of games due to injury, his team only reached the playoffs once in his career (in the 1990 season, a game in which he was injured and never played again), and he never rushed for 1,000 yards in a season.

    It's ridiculous I know - this all-powerful incredible athlete who ESPN voted as the greatest athlete of all time - one who made one pro bowl and one all-star game in his career while having one decent college football season (key word: college). Batted at .250 his whole baseball career and had a slugging % of .474, and only scored 18 total touchdowns in 38 NFL games. His best MLB season was at a .256 batting average, .495 slugging %, 32 homers, and 178 strikeouts. His best NFL season was 950 yards and 4 TDs (with no receiving talent at all). I remember seeing a stat saying that just under half (48% maybe) of his NFL games he had under 4 YPC and/or 50 total yards, and he only ever topped 125 yards in a game four times. The only people who actually rate his career are people who saw that 30for30, people who get nostalgia-boners from their youth and video games, and/or cucks.

    The Bozworth uber bust label is just moronic, if you are reasonably productive+fail because of injury you are not a massive bust. If you never produce, and fail for whatever reason then you are a bust. Its like people calling AJ Hawk a bust, heap of tackles, ten years+ at the position, not a bust.

    Caste world is just weird.

    Bosa was labelled a bust before he stepped on the field, compare that to Jadeavon Clowney, the "once in a generation player", who is still not labelled a bust despite two years of zero production.

    Lol agreed. Not to mention Bosa has as many sacks in 1 year, as the Clown does is in 3!

    This guy had bust written all over him. The dolphins foolishly wasted a pick on him last year:

    According to the Miami Herald, the Dolphins are "not convinced" sophomore WR Leonte Carroo is ready to handle third receiver duties.

    It's why they're still trying to re-sign free agent Kenny Stills despite his exorbitant asking price. Last year, the Dolphins' front office was so smitten with Carroo they traded a 2016 sixth-round pick in addition to third- and fourth-round picks this year to select Carroo at No. 86 overall. Carroo earned only 120 offensive snaps and made no impact on special teams.

    Caste whore Mike Tannenbaum was so in love with this guy that he traded away a 3rd and a 4th round pick to get him. It would have been bad enough had they just stood pat and taken him, but the fact that they traded away valuable picks to take this bum (picks that could have been used on some white offensive linemen) is just another example of rubbing salt in the wounds. I can't wait until this assclown is shown his walking papers. He's essentially the white (or Jewish) Doug Whaley.

    Here is his draft profile from last year. Despite all of the negatives and things we here at CF could see from a mile away, he was still graded at round 2 or 3.

    Maybe Gase will pressure Tennenbaum to draft someone like Kupp or Hansen or bring back Hartline.

    Really hoping to see Hartline back in uniform next season whether it be in Miami again or maybe out West with Trubisky and Shanahan. Same could be said for Kupp and Hansen!

    I will celebrate the day Carroo is gone like I will the day Dion Jordan is gone.

    Both these players have this team's future held hostage by PIPE DREAMS about value, "upside" and potential. Neither one is ever going to do anything for the Dolphins but be a continual complication of roster, talent and strategy going forward.

    Seems like they managed to re-sign Stills. They wouldn't even know what to do with a white receiver anyway. Look at how they let Hogan and Welker walk. I just hope for Tannehill's sake that Parker and Stills help him out more.

    I was actually happy that the resigned Stills who as the season progressed, seemed to have good chemistry with Tannehill. I kind of wish we had one of those grinders a la Amendola and Edelman who always seem to KILL us every time we play New England. It would be nice to have our own version of one of them. I'll never forget or forgive them trading Welker to the Patriots which came back to bite us in the ASS.

    Tyson Jackson is a HUGE bust. He has been able to somehow escape any real scrutiny even though he was the 3rd overall pick. His career numbers are laughable. For a 3rd round pick you are supposed to be more than a body. The Falcons just dumped him after signing him to a terrible deal a few years ago.

    Tyson Jackson - DL - Free Agent
    Falcons released DT Tyson Jackson.

    This was expected unless Jackson was willing to accept a pay cut. Signed to a "five-year, $25-million deal" prior to the 2014 season, Jackson recorded zero sacks while playing just adequate run defense on limited snaps in Atlanta. 31 in June, Jackson will likely have to settle for a short-term deal. The move saves the Falcons $2.65 million against the cap.

    Another former 1st round bust gets cut - he was terrible with the Saints and remained terrible throughout the rest of his career:

    Colts released CB Patrick Robinson.
    One of ex-GM Ryan Grigson's many free-agent flops, Robinson was unable to stay on the field last season due to groin, knee, and concussion issues. He started just six games. With new GM Chris Ballard in town, it's time to clean house. The move saves $2.5 million. Robinson turns 30 this year, but he had a really good 2015 with the Chargers and can still help a team.

    Also lets not forget Sumo Bust Greg Robinson of the Rams. They had to sign Whitworth to recover that lard sumo mistake.
