If our team doctors check him out and he seems durable enough, then great... go for it. But we're obviously going to be hearing conflicting reports from doctors right now. It's pre-draft posturing.
Also, as I've mentioned, McNeill's issue was in his neck. So the weight argument continues to be invalid unless Marcus' head is significantly larger than Jones'.
as a former overweight person, I had back issues that caused pains in all areas of my body, from my legs to my neck. lost some of the weight, still working on it, but the pain has gone away. not saying it was a contributing factor, but just saying they are not apples to apples.
