New beginnings

For the last week, fans and the media have reacted to the suspensions of Fred Davis and Trent Williams for substance abuse. Some discussions have centered around whether these guys are good guys to have on this team. While they deserve to be punished, let's not get carried away.
Trent Williams will be entering his third year as a pro next year and made good progress in his development. Safe to say, he's not going anywhere. So let's focus on soon to be free agent, Fred Davis. With a skill set that can give opposing defenses fits, Davis is worth building around.
Some argue that he could easily fail another test and set the team again, but with the potential millions and leverage lost it would be a small risk to take.
This season is a wash. Losing Williams and Davis without injuries are blessings in disguise. Remember Trent Williams just returned from an injury two weeks ago. From interviews it sounds like they did not take the tests they were failing seriously. HGH was the bogey man. Maybe the assumption was marijuana's no big deal. Just pay the fines and keep it moving.
Hopefully, Trent Williams and Fred Davis will now trade in blowing smoke rings for concentrating on getting super bowl rings.
