we also released Preston Parker and resigned Tiquan Underwood today...


Lot's of shifts at the WR position. Owusu could be a returner, Smith hasnt really done much, and I dont like Benn in that role

His concussion history scares the hell out of me. I don't expect much in all honesty. I'd rather we promote Dale Moss to the roster so that some other team doesn't steal him away from our practice squad.

Unfortunately with Stroughter's injury history, I think this may be the end of his football career. I wish him the best, certainly have no problem adding speed to the WR core.

I want to continue to see the 9 route used in this offense throughout each game. More speed is a good thing.

Yeah he has the physical traits. I believe he is 6'2 also. He just has a bad injury history.

Why didn't we just put Stroughter on IR and sign Underwood? Why cut Parker?

very good point about Moss...I think he needs to be called up if we see anymore moves at WR....Honestly I would have liked to see him over Owusu as well. Not sure what he'll give to us that we dont already have.

Moss could be something special...

I said it before, and I'll say it again, I think with a little patience someone will hit the jackpot with Moss, he is a local boy from around here, and a hell of a athlete.
