He's still pretty decent age to have a longer career.

If I were him, I'd weigh the benefits of asking the team to put him on IR the rest of the year and let him rehab and build up his leg strength.
Well he's said that it's as strong as it's going to get, it's just never going to be at the level it was before. I don't know that it would do him any good, to be honest. I think his career's on borrowed time. He says his ankle feels strong and that he worked on it all summer and lockout, I think his mobility is just now limited.
