              • If he can recover and stay healthy he should make the 49ers 2 deep at any of the 4 lb spots.

                    I have invested everything BUT tuition for Notre Dame. I make no apologies.

                      • Waived by the 49ers today. I assume they reached an injury settlement with him.

                          • This guy has had some terrible luck. I pray for him and hope he lands on his feet!

                            Comment


                            • Will be out for the entire season, and will have to catch on with a team in the spring, and he's got some pretty good odds going against him.

                              However, he's pocketed some good dough ($431,000 in 2012 [390,000 base + $41,200 bonus] and the rest of his guaranteed money by waiving him [$123,600]), so if he spent that wisely he'll have good amount of money still left in case he can't catch on anywhere, and having that ND degree now to fall back is a HUGE bonus, especially since it came from Mendoza School of Business (management-consulting).

                              Best of luck wherever you end up, Darius! Hope you can recover!

                                49ers had released him earlier in May

                                  • Got the start tonight for the Pats (due to injuries) and played very well. Played literally the whole game at OLB and looked really good out there. 6 tackles, 3 solo.

                                          • Playing well tonight and getting a lot of love from the local TV people, who are 'insiders' with the Patriots (as is typical in these preseason broadcasts).

                                              Boston Globe predicted him to make the Week 1 roster as of a week ago. I know he's been getting a lot of PT on special teams which is huge.

                                                        Can't believe nobody posted this.... Notre Dame Man?

                                                        Darius Fleming, Hero: Patriots Linebacker Saved a Woman from a Burning Car Last Week - Pats Pulpit

                                                        It's an understatement to say we are proud of New England Patriot Darius Fleming, St. Rita Class of 2008. Darius stepped up to play a key role at Linebacker in the Patriots' playoff win over the weekend, but two days earlier made an even bigger impact.

                                                        He helped save a woman from a burning vehicle by kicking through her car window to help her escape. In doing so, he suffered a cut to his leg that required 22 stitches to close.

                                                        On and off the field, Ritamen like Darius do great things. Keep up the great work, Darius, & thank you for your courage.

                                                          But seriously, what an incredible thing to do!

                                                          • He played maybe the most snaps of the season at LB for him also due to injuries, and was pretty solid. Very impressive story and effort last week against the Chiefs.
