Hey Gerry, I really liked what I saw from Xavier Grimble last year in limited action, what is holding him back from getting the same amount if not more reps as Jesse James? Blocking?
Gerry Dulac
11:27
No, catching. Too inconsistent.
Jud

Do you expect any of the these to make the 53?  McCullers, Golson, DHB, Ayers?
Gerry Dulac
11:27
Maybe 1 or 2. McCullers and/or one of the receivers.

What do you think about Bell's contract demand? It's hard to fault a guy who might be one of the top 3 players in the league who sees 3rd tier QBs making a lot more money...
Gerry Dulac

You can't compare positions. Hey, he chose the franchise tag over a good contract offer, then doesn't sign the tender. Nobody feels bad for him

I haven't seen anything posted here, today, relative to CB Sensebaugh. Is he a possibility to play a lot, or is he just training camp fodder?
Gerry Dulac
11:28
He'll make the team, I believe, as a backup, but he's not the answer in the secondary.

Bell is being paid based partly on A Peterson's mammoth contract....will ABs Franchise Tag salary count toward next year's average when figuring out the 2018 tag number?
Gerry Dulac
11:29
No. It's just by position

Gerry Dulac

Gerry, what are your keys to getting past the Pats this year?  I understand that they need to take care of regular season.  thanks for the info.
Gerry Dulac
11:29
They first and biggest key is to not play them there!!
Pauli

Who's the biggest surprise player for you so far in this years camp?
Gerry Dulac
11:30
JuJu. He looks NFL ready even though he was youngest player in the draft
ryan

is AB gonna be the team punt returner again this year you would think the team would have at least found a servicable guy to put back there by now
Gerry Dulac
11:31
yes
ryan
11:31
Do you think the team try to reduce bell workload this year
Gerry Dulac
11:31
No.
Jud

CBs aren't the only answer to improving defense...are we going to get better pass rush this year?
Gerry Dulac
11:32
Bingo. That, to the Steelers, is the biggest solution to an improved secondary. Brady picked apart the secondary last year because nobody could touch him or hurry him. It doesn't matter who's back there is the QB can stand around and wait for receivers to flash open
That's all the time we have today kids. Lots of good questions. Bye now
