Who wants Bob Sanders? I do! I do!


In a mind boggling, yet at the same time strangely understandable move, the Colts have released FS Bob Sanders.  Just 3 years ago Sanders sat atop the NFL world as Defensive Player of the Year and capped his season off by toting an interception into the endzone to secure the 2007 Super Bowl win over the Bears.  Since that time Sanders has been wracked with injuries playing only 9 games in the past 3 seasons and having torn his biceps muscle in both arms.  He's set to make 5.5 million in base salary the coming season but we're all aware of his injury prone nature.  So the question here is this...  Is Sanders worth the risk?  A torn bicep while a season ending injury is not IMO anywhere close to a career damaging injury.  This isn't a torn quadriceps.  Your biceps is probably one of the absolute LEAST applicable muscles to an NFL player.  So I still believe we could get a lot of utility out of him.  When he's healthy he's as good as any safety in the league as far as all around ability.  His statline from 2007 read 15 games, 96 tackles, 3.5 sacks, 6 passes defended, and 2 Ints.  Is he worth it to you?
