D.J Fluker released by Seattle..interest ?

Sun Apr 26, 2020 10:20 pm

Fluker, 29, started 23 of 24 regular-season games in his two years with Seattle. He was a punishing blocker in the success of Seattle's run game. Fluker started his career with the Chargers before spending one season with the New York Giants.

Heard a rumor he’s a bit of a head case and not the best locker room presence...but that’s only a rumor. However, why would Seattle drop him? I’m too lazy to look up who they drafted...

I'm very intrigued, but hesitant. He was a high pick who's already burned through two NFL teams, there has to be a reason for that. Same reasoning behind not wanting Ebron, something has to be up with this guy cause he sure looks the part.

I suppose I would stay away from him, but if Pace signed him I'd quickly flip flop and be super excited about it lol.

He's not known for having the best work ethic. There were some rumblings that he was teetering around 400lbs and isn't super committed.

I know these guys are getting paid more in a year than a lot of people will see in a lifetime so on the face it of it, it seems incredulous to hear about guys not being committed. Still, I think if you're heart isn't into the work, and you're already in a position of comfort, I can understand it at a certain level.

Absolutely.

When you don't need a job - because you don't need the money, you can get another just like it anytime, you're leaving soon anyway, whatever - it's very easy to start heading for the door, quickly or slowly.
