Some more size.
I'm pessimistic on Petty.
How many on the roster are "Nate's guys?" Mentality, not signee. Herb is one of those.
Did you hear a rumor that Petty wanted to go somewhere, Europe, whereever, and get paid? Maybe something about a kid? Again, just a rumor I hear, maybe on hear, but I think that may be the reason he moves on. It would be GREAT to see him return.
I think I saw something on this board about him having a little girl. There are certainly circumstances where you need to do what is best for your family. I sometimes wander if you look at the big picture waiting one more year might be what is best even if the additional year is a struggle. Kind of like when Saban says if you are not in the first round you should come back. A lot of money to be made by coming back if you can get drafted higher. It does take one more year of sacrifice but Petty has to decide if that is best for his situation.
I agree. I'm in the boat that if you've made it this long and far, what's 8-10 more months? Especially when it could mean a reward of five times more profitability. But once again, I'm not in their shoes and don't know their situation.
