That should help give us an idea if he's going to be ready to step up next season or not. I'd be leaning towards "not"... until he proves decisively otherwise, either with his late season black aces showings, or with a summer of hard work and a great training camp. But I'd be building my roster and default plans without expecting that. Bonus if he forces my hand. But it would be expecting too much to really plan on that.

He's not really going to be a terrifying fighter or anything anyway. Just a component of size, which we need. But not really intimidation.
You guy's read this wrong. I mean if you send one of the scratched D and injuries happen. Not for him being the Heavyweight, lol
