SIDE NOTE: Many NFL analysts believe Cyrus Kouandjio’s NFL days may be over. He has had some injuries and frankly has not performed well. And then there is that strange incident from a few years ago. In hindsight, it seems like he should have stayed a fourth year at Alabama like older brother, Arie, who may have some more NFL years in him.
