    Vollmer Surgery

    http://www.nfl.com/news/story/0ap1000000143681/article/report-patriots-sebastian-vollmer-has-knee-surgery

    Sorry if this has already been posted, will this guy ever have and luck with injuries. The back still bothering him worries me alot more than the knee, he can't seem to get that cleared up. How much consideration will the team put into this latest setback?

    Re: Vollmer Surgery

    The knee was a known injury during the year and I agree that the back is probably more concerning long term. I do think the injury history is going to depress his next contract and he might end up signing a shorter deal so he gets another crack at the big pie in a few years. Or the guaranteed portion of his contract will be below average, or the player/team get opt out/buy-out clauses.

    He is a very good player who when healthy is a top right tackle and has proved in limited action to be a better than average left tackle. If teams with dire tackle situations persue him with an eye on shifting him to LT that will raise his price higher than the Pats probably want to go. They also have Cannon, Zusevics, and Hix on the roster as possible replacements so they are not desperate at the position.

    In terms of injury, Long out of Miami is in a similar situation as a UFA - medical questions for a high quality and relatively young Tackle.

    Re: Vollmer Surgery

    wonder if he signs a short deal to prove he can stay healthy and get a big score, or wants a longer more moderately priced contract with more guaranteed...either way, this unfortunate situation for Vollmer has to help the Pats sign him

    Any chance this is good news? If the surgery was minor it may not be enough to scare teams off, but when you throw in his back problems as well...might be. Really if a team wants him they are going to just have him pass their physical or the contract will be voided, but this could scare off a few teams.

    This piece would seem to indicate that the surgery was rather a routine 'maintenance' item and that their is no real concern with his back.  I'm of the opinion he will have suitors but will probably be back with the Pats.

    I've been dumping on Vollmer a bit too much.  Profootballfocus.com just rated the Patriots' offensive line as #2 in the NFL, and they singled out Sebastian Vollmer as the stud on that line.  I'll now give him a reasonable chance at being franchised by the Patriots.

    some athletes unfortunately are injury prone and/or unlucky...it's the one thing no team or GM can accurately predict and yet it's the one thing that can bring a team down if it's a bad enough injury to a key player
