The Ultra-Unreliable One strikes again. This time it's PED's.

Please draft a replacement for this guy. (To be prioritized below Center, of course.)

Haven't drafted a LB in the 1st or 2nd round in 8 years, and a bunch of busts since.

If they could trade Burfict they should do it.

Of course no one would take him facing another suspension and his degenerative injury problems/history. 

All they can do is stash him until his contract is gone or expendable, and view him as a major bonus when he's on the field, meanwhile draft another OLB or MLB that isn't just fodder.  I've never seen a defense so held-back by a weak LB and SS group.  Not one outstanding player at either position - and Iloka is competent enough, but nothing special as well.  Of course this is a result of an operating philosophy that devalues "up the middle" positions such as LB, G, C, S and LB historically.

One thing to note, btw, is that if he's suspended, then his contract guarantees are no longer valid and he can be cut without penalty I believe. 

I highly doubt they do that this year, but, if they want to move on with another player then they can if that happens.
