It hadn't affected his ability to perform until we got him back. He was a star. The claims that we shouldn't have recruited him because he had mental health issues are about as definitive in terms of non-inclusiveness as it gets. It didn't work out, but I hope that we aren't going to automatically cross off anyone with mental health issues in the future.Mental health in Beams’ case affected his ability to perform. Or maybe he’s just a dickhead and didn’t care to perform. I’d imagine race is less likely to affect that.
Either was the issue with Beams was we pissed away salary cap space and draft picks for nothing, not his mental health.
