LOVE grabbing Rainey!

dont know anything about Johnson.. will have to look him up.


Houston fans were thrilled to get rid of him. He isn't a good runner but can catch out of the backfield (Think Brandon Jackson lol) he also has fumbling issues. I don't think he will add anything to the team, would have rather kept Cook.


just read Johnson is the SEC all-time leader in KR yardage (2,784). Teach him how to hold a football and He might stay after all. haha

Watching some of his college highlights. The announcers made a comment he doesn't fumble often.

I think they are looking for someone else to return kicks with Benjamin and Johnson can do that with Rainey being the number 2 back behind Trent.

DJ is built like ray rice but he fumbles a lot. Hard guy to tackle though and has nice burst. He was more effective than Knile Davis last year for Arkansas.

I just drafted him LATE in a keeper league.

Hope he makes the most of his chances for my fandom & now for my fantasy.

Yep I just went there

It seems like Ravens fans were disappointed that he was cut. He wasn't cut due to not being talented enough, but because the Ravens have two very good running backs in Rice and Pierce. It still wouldn't have hurt them to keep Rainey on the roster, but I'm not going to complain if he's as good as I've heard he is.

If you can find it watch the Ravens 4th preseason game. You get a good look at Bobby Rainey...
