But he never looked great to me and there is no way to be certain that he got off whatever he was on. Feel free to chime in guys if you have something to offer. Maybe I got bad info but if not the rebuild is not going well already.
I'm not too bothered by the signing. Pernell isn't going to cost much money. Really finished 2015 strong. He got busted for Marijuana and served a 4 game suspension. If I remember, his second 4 game suspension was for a diluted sample. I remember it being leaked and some discussion about a random test being diluted. He has overcome alot, kidney cancer, was undrafted ,and stuck in Green Bay. Dean Lowry emerging in the last 4 games while Pernell was suspended really is why he was released.
He will give us needed depth if hehas managed to get himself together. It makes releasing Sheldon easier and gives us a back up NT which we don't have and a rotational DE. He actually would have been the second highest graded player on our D last year at 79.9 behind only Williams 86.4 . He nearly doubled Wilkerson 44.1 grade. He is really a low risk, financially, high reward signing. He really has made major strides on the field and would be a first or second round pick which we get free. If he works out, great. If not. Doesn't cost us anything.
