Who says we didnt know? It was never officially reported but was widely speculated before the deadline that Kane was on one leg and would need surgery. Friedman alluded to it several times in his reporting and I posted it here. If we were hearing it I am sure Drury heard it and looked into it. My guess is Drury knew and that's why he went elsewhere early with his first rounder. We had moved on. When it came back up the question was whether he could still bring enough to make the cheaper price worth it. Spending a second on a gimpy Kane is not the same as spending a first on a gimpy Kane and causing you to miss out on other guys. Drury rolled the dice and it didn't work out, for a lot of reasons. It would be great if Kane took a 1 year prove it deal for cheap, but long road ahead for him.
