"McDougald may have opportunities at offseason reps while Thomas comes back from a broken leg and Chancellor’s rehabbing from ankle surgery, but he’s a depth signing there."So says one NBC Sports writer (Darin Gantt) I just looked up for you. Confirmed my comment.
The comments from a sports writer hardly compare to comments from the head coach and general manager who targeted and acquired the player for a purpose. I'll certainly take their word for their plans and intentions concerning a specific player over some sports writer.
