Default How long do we screw around with Mailata?

It just seems to me that we have too much talent to waste a roster spot on him and let a good player walk out of the door.

depends on your opinion of his future I suppose. If they indeed think he is a future star, it's a great time to let him learn.

I think that it's time to send him packing. He should have tried to learn an easier position anyway.

You could be right, but it's really hard to tell from our prospective. The coaches see him every day. They have to make that determination. It will be interesting to see him in the preseason. That might give a bit of insight into what they have.

Hey, the guy is turning Osterman into a legend! Get rid of 'em.

I hear you EB but this isn't a JV squad like Howie tried to do with Pumps and him last year. That's what practice squads are for. There was an article that ND posted yesterday about how Osterman was beating Mailatta and getting to the QB and they were calling him Legend lol. He beat him so badly that they were running him with the ones as a joker. If he was beating Peters and Johnson instead of a kid who never played football I'd say great. Time to scrap the project and develop the lineman that we have IMO.

Eh, Big V would've been canned day one if all we went by was a 30 second clip. Big V has turned into a pretty versatile backup. I have no expectation of Maliata becoming Jason Peters but hope that he can turn into Big V when he departs next year

I definitely would not give up on Mailata. I'm not sure what anyone expects out of a really good athlete trying to be an NFL offensive tackle while never playing the sport before but he's doing great by that measure. The organization is willing to give him time (I hope). We ditched on Villaneuva too soon and missed out on a pro bowler.
