Nate Ebner Makes Rio Olympics for Rugby
Gotta love this guy. Besides Herschel Walker, he’s the only man to do the Olympics after playing in the NFL. That’s pretty impressive. He’s obviously dirty at rugby and he’s become a very good special teams guy and a pretty solid safety too.
I just looked up when the Olympics start and end (August 5-21 for you who also had no idea when the Olympics are) and figured out he wont miss a game but he’s definitely gonna miss a ton of camp and preseason, which brings me to my next point, how is his absence going to affect his playing time? I love him on special teams, he’s probably the second best special teams guy we got after Slater, but Bill doesn’t respond well to absence. Last year Malcolm Butler missed his flight to Boston for OTAs because of weather, he told Belichick he would be late, and still got benched almost three weeks. So I would assume Ebner will miss a few games even though I really hope he doesn’t.
