    Ziggy Hood was not the BPA for a team that runs a 3-4 defense...

    Jaguars gave Ziggy Hood $16M over 4 years. Guess we know why they are the Jaguars. Wow

    great, that will help offset the Mitchell contract in comp for 2015
    Even if Bill Belichick was getting an atomic wedgie, his face would look exactly the same.

    At the time, he was...in hindsight, perhaps not...

    Not crying over Hood, but it is a symptom of a larger issue... It reminds me of rats deserting a sinking ship. It signals the lack of any culture that would tend to make guys look for reasons to stay. Among other things, it signals a lack of a direction, a lack of leadership.

    It further reinforces my statement, that we need to hit a home run in this year's draft, in terms of bringing in true leaders.

    Maybe the FO told Hood they did not think he was worth retaining or had no contact with him altogether. Silence by the FO could speak volumes and Hood read between the lines. It could be a good split for both, Hood leaves the stigma of being an underwhelming 1st rounder and the Steelers look into other avenues.

    The irony being that Ziggy Hood (under the radar guy, middle of the road guy, with tread on tires) is precisely the kind of guy we've targeted in FA.

    Maybe they thought they got all they could with Hood and want to try elsewhere. I'd rather give the Carrington guy a try than C. Thomas.

    Hood was durable and was a solid character guy (team captain at Missouri etc) when the santonio holmes thing was going on. And he wore #96....don't know what more to say about the guy. Not really invested in whether he stayed or went. That says it all when you're talking about a former #1.
