    Man, tough handful of days for the M's. I was bummed about Cano's hand, but then the PED suspension news came out and I was super disappointed.

    I don't fall into the "Mariners are cursed" camp like a lot of fans and local radio hosts do, but good lord I can't help but wonder what we gotta do to even make it to the postseason at this point.

    Also, I'm kinda on the fence with the whole accepting that Felix should probably be cut sooner rather than later thing.

    I'm really happy Maxwell is back with us. He's the best loose-sleeved player in the league if you ask me.

    Joking aside, I'm curious if they're going to move Shaquill over to LCB in Sherm's old spot and have Maxwell back at RCB. It would make sense to me if they're confident 'Quill has continued to develop and hes' ready, considering he seems to be our #1 CB going forward.

    @sammyc521 agreed, can't wait to see what Norton Jr. does back here with this group.

    @sammyc521 I think that's a really interesting fact lol.

    Can't believe this guy is 20 years old. Really good body control that he uses for gap control or for rushing, and good use of the swim move in some of his highlight vids. Likes to set up the spin or swim move by bull-rushing the guard a lot of the time, then hitting them with the move as soon as the G thinks he's gotten good enough leverage and balance to stop the bullrush. Doesn't seem like much for speed rushing, and that could be because he still hasn't fully developed/grown into his massive frame, but if he can fill out a little more and/or improve his footwork he'll be an awesome DT/DE similar to Bennett. He's more explosive and faster than Bennett coming out of school while weighing-in at 1 pound heavier and, once again, only 20 years old. I like this comp and measurables:

    Rasheem Green: 6'4, 275 lbs, 33.75'' arms
    Michael Bennett: 6'4, 274 lbs, 33.63'' arms

    Green's 40: 4.73
    Bennett's 40: 5.13

    Green's 10-yard split: 1.65
    Bennett's 10-yard split: 1.78

    Green's vert: 33.5''
    Bennett's 40: 31.0''

    Green's broad jump: 118.0''
    Bennett's broad jump: 110.0''

    @sammyc521 definitely going all in on the run game. Can't wait to see what this offense looks like by mid-season.

    I like Dissly as an attempt to get back to a well-rounded, classic Y TE that can and WILL block, and can get out for some routes when he's needed. He's the closest thing we've seen to Zach Miller 2.0 in Seattle.

    I like this even more when we consider Shotty likes two TE sets and we picked up Dickson in FA. Dickon's not all that impressive at run blocking, but great at pass blocking and being a safety valve. The two should complement each other well if Dissly can see his way onto the field in these types of packages.

    @billa Shaq had three interceptions in his college career, one in each of the last three seasons.
