Apparently The Commish thought he was being an asshole. Can't say I disagree.


What?

Let's think for a minute... Jolly had a real problem with codeine addiction. He failed multiple drug tests and ultimately landed in jail.

Apparently the commissioner wanted Jolly to pass some drug tests as a free man.

I'd be really surprised to see him back as he was in 2009. Let's not forget our scheme has changed & the game's changing as well. Revolving a lot on speed now!

The speed shouldnt be thatmuch of a factor considering there are still plenty of guys from 09 still in the league haha. Not like the game of football has totally changed since he last played. Yes we have the advent of the read-option in the NFL, but what would a guy like Jolly do in our defense other than take up some blockers and try to penetrate into the backfield occasionally? It's not like we're going to rely on him to stretch a play out and chase down a Runningback from a two point stance. If he's in any form of shape I think we need to give him a shot as a camp body at the very least. We know he's got the talent, lets see if he can wash off the rust and make something out of it. If he cant then we cut him and no harm done. I could see this being a very Koren Robinson esq. move, very low risk with some decent payback.

Everybody is always down on Pickett and CJ Wilson because they don't bring much pass rush but are excited about Jolly who never brought much pass rush.

Oh ya that guy won't be the same for 2 years if he returns on a team. But you never know, you work out so much in prison and he probably lost a lot of weight. I believe in 2nd chances. I wouldn't mind seeing him on the team in Training camp as a backup. If we gave Justin Harrell so many chances, we can give this guy one.

Jolly's game is different than anyone on our current D-line. The guy is the prototypical power pig, pure, brute strenth. He may not have gotten a lot of sacks, but he brought a LOT of pressure. The ball came out quicker because his man was going into the QB's lap. Gaycandybacon mentioned Jolly's knack for pass deflections, that wasn't coincidence. It was because he was in the quarterback's grill.

Jolly's power isn't because he's a gym rat. His game wasn't built in the weight room. He's a naturally powerful man. If he can be in football shape by the end of camp, he will likely be back where he was.

As for the idea that the scheme has changed - sorry - Jolly was starting in Dom's 3-4 the last time we saw him. He's perfect for the power DE in our scheme.

A lot of people on this forum keep referring to speed when talking D-line. I don't understand that at all. How fast do you want your big guys to run? You want speed at Linebacker, but if you're expecting guys who weigh between 315 and 350 to run fast, you're asking for something that simply doesn't exist.

Jolly doesn't make a penny if he doesn't make the team. His $2.5 million tender (if not regegotiated) is 2% of the cap. That's small money for a starter, which I would expect from him if he makes the team.

I think if you watch this video, it might help understand why some folks are frenzied over the speed factor, - link. This is their expectation of a defensive lineman.

That is basically a bunch of bull. Jolly was a run stopper he brought hardly any pressure at all.

Jolly had 12 pressures in his last season. The next year Jarius Wynn had 10, and everyone hated Wynn for his lack of pass rushing ability. Don't get me wrong Jolly in 2009 form would be overall the best or 2nd best lineman on the team but that doesn't mean we'd suddenly get a great pass rush from the interior.
