I forgot in which video I saw this on HT.com, but Kubes was talking about how Bentley had surgery and how Sharpton had an ankle (DNP-Wed), and then he said something like "Nixon is going to have to step up."

So meet David Nixon...http://www.byucougars.com/uploads/graphics/athletes/m-00000001421.jpg

I think he was actually picked up by the Raiders in 2009 based on this forum

Not sure if we will see him anywhere but special teams, but I am sure he will be out there at some point. I'm glad Cushing is coming back next week.

I watched a video of him, and I liked his burst and closing speed.

"Nixon is going to have to step up."

Nixon stepped up, alright. Just enough to let Vrabel get behind him in the endzone.
