Once one of the dominant pass rushers in the NFL, the career of defensive end Adewale Ogunleye (http://www.rotoworld.com/content/playerpages/player_main.aspx?sport=NFL&id=27) is coming to a conclusion.

Wow, dude fell off. Skills eroded quick!

I don't know man. He had some pretty solid years with Bears after leaving Miami.

Nice player but had a very fast decline in physical ability. A shame really, but that's the NFL.

I agree with phinatic8u. He seemed like he was more the product of a system than being an outstanding player.

He was once a stud... With all the pieces around him to be great.
Where's Marty Booker these days?

No? have you even seen him play in Chicago. 2, 9+ sack seasons and 4 5+ sack seasons, a couple safties, a couple picks. He had freakin 6 FF in 2007, 12 in total in 6 years with the bears, which is outstanding, and all without JT.

It was a horrible trade giving him up for freakin Marty Booker.


He was doing fine until he broke his leg in 2009.. Has since dropped off the map

If he could have lasted until now with us.... instead of Booker, I wouldn't have complained.

I guess what they mean is that he was the product of two separate systems; Miami and Chicago ; )

I agree 100% that the trade was stupid but you can't act like he was by himself on that D. There were some studs that all played together. And yes, thats exactly what I meant, he was stud mainly b/c he played with a bunch of stud players both here and in Chicago. I don't think he was a bad player I just think he benefited from the players around him on both teams.

Can you imagine what Cameron Wake today would have done if he played with either of those defenses

Yet another 'brilliant' move by Wrong Way Dave (Wrongstadt...wrong for the Phins)

Considering the horse **** QB Booker had throwing him the football, I'd say he did fairly decent here.

You can make the same arguement about EVERY player in the NFL.. James Harrison, Demarcus ware, Jason Babin, dwight Freeneym and so on...

Ogunleye was good but never great, and when merely good players get old at a demanding position, they become not so good players when great players merely become good players (like JT). He certainly benefited from JT, but Ogunleye deserves props for what he did regardless. There have been lots of DE's with great pass rushers opposite them that haven't paced the league in sacks.
