I guess when I read about Trevion Thomson
Posted: May 6, 2014 3:24 PM
 

I keep thinking the idea is to look at every possibility. Meaning every player who could be competing for a roster slot.

I don't see Fleming as poorly as you do. If he gets some polish, he could be better at pulling down yards between the tackles than many of the smaller guys like Howard or Davidson. He could still get some speed back (I read he ran sub 4.5 40s at one point) if he trimmed down a few pounds but kept muscle mass.

My guess is that the coaches are cautious because of his ego and personality issues. But they did encourage him to walk on, so they must see potential there both athletically and in attitude.
