So could Baldwin or Tate really.

I think that's what it came down to. Why expend all the effort it would take to babysit Mike and keep him motivated when we've got all this young talent so hungry to get on the field and show what they can do.

Doug Baldwin says he'll approach every season like he did last year, as if he's an UDFA desperate to make the team. Mike obviously doesn't have that in him. Never get comfortable.
