He's a Brown. I think he'll make his mark if he gets a handle on the ball. Good burst.

I'm fine with him not being on the PS, the one thing you can't do is lose the football...and I saw him bobble it way too much this preseason.

I was hoping D.J. would make it through waivers and back to our practice squad. Dude has serious speed and we'd have a year of P/S work to develop his ball carrying skills.

How soon we forget....
It wasn't too long ago we gave up on two guys with track star speed AND somewhat weak ball handling skills only to see them picked up by other teams who turned them into weapons ...Super Bowl winning weapons.

I do not wish to bolster someone else's special teams - AGAIN - when a bit of patience and some P/S training could make him a weapon for us.

Ok what is the deal with the Browns always taking our waived RBs? Didn't this also happen with Ogbonnaya (sp?) 2 years ago?

In my April mock I had Wood #6 but then again I had Da'Rick Rogers 2nd round. At least Buffalo had him as a high round pick also.

Did he get cut from the Bills ?! Im still in shock the kid didn't get drafted , he had measurable equal to the top WR's .... then again , he was a knucklehead of epic proportions.



I'm glad DJ is gone ... couldn't hang onto the ball. I have no use for an RB who has that much trouble hanging onto the ball - He did it on the practice field & in the preseason games more than once.


Once I may have overlooked ... but when you put the ball on the turf three times in two games while splitting time with other backs ..... forget it.

Yep. One of the first out the door in the first cut. Something about attitude and being dumber than a box of rocks.

Oh, and no other courters either. Looking like a short lived career. Very short lived.

I think that and his off field issues is what turned off .... damn near every team.

It'll be interesting to see if he gets another shot .... he obviously has the physical talent to be a top tier WR .... just seems to be short a few marbles.


I don't feel sorry for the guy in the slightest ... he squandered a college education and a shot in the NFL being a knucklehead.
