Agree completely. This team cannot afford to get off to a bad start again. The last thing we'd need is to lose a game because Sam made a rookie mistake, no matter how good he is.
Let him go to the retreat, play another ex game or two, then send him back. We don't have room on the roster or cap space to experiment right now.
