Exclamation LB Chaun Thompson to visit | update: signed contract 3-14

I didn't want to derail the CB thread that we were looking at..so HOU-TEX first showed this

this is a 5 part serious on Chaun before the draft and i realize people change after 5 years in the league but

Quote:
This is the first in a series as SI.com follows West Texas A&M linebacker Chaun Thompson in the weeks leading up to the 2003 NFL Draft in April.

By B. Duane Cross, SI.com

He has the size -- 6-foot-2 and 240 pounds -- and the speed -- timed at 4.53 in the 40. Now all West Texas A&M linebacker Chaun Thompson wants is the chance to play on Sundays.

With E.J. Henderson, Mario Haggan, Terry Pierce and Bradie James garnering most of the hype for inside íbackers at the NFL Scouting Combine last month, Thompson felt like a wide-eyed kid while walking among the players heíd previously only seen on TV.

Maybe now those "big-name" players will tell their grandchildren of being on the same field as Thompson.

"After doing my physical," Thompson said of his initial combine experience, "I looked down at my shorts, and thought, 'Dude, Iíve got on new NFL gear! Iíve got my name on my back!' I was really happy.

"Then I walked in and bench-pressed 225 [pounds] 29 times. I was pumped about that; others didnít get as many. Those Division I players are just like me; youíve got to hit the weight room and work hard."

I'd assume he would be the SAM backer; where his blitz skills could be best used.

Tony Grossi, of The Plain Dealer, reports the Houston Texans met with free-agent LB Chaun Thompson (Browns) Thursday, March 13. Thompson is scheduled to take a physical with the Texans Friday, March 14.

Already scheduling a physical? Maybe they are close on a deal?

Who is Chaun Thompson?[/

He is a versatile linebacker that the Seahawks may be eying help shore up the reserve corps, which was decimated by the loss of Kevin Bentley and Niko Koutouvides. Adam Caplan states......

While the Cleveland Browns are still interested in re-signing Chaun Thompson, a league source told Scout.com the versatile free agent linebacker has also drawn the interest of the Seattle Seahawks.

Seattle lost versatile backup LB Kevin Bentley to the Houston Texans on Monday and are looking for a linebacker, such as Thompson, who is capable of playing multiple linebacker positions.

For another thrilling scouting report......

007 Scouting Report - Scouts Inc.
Grade: 57 | Key
Alert: TM

Comment: Thompson has good size, speed and in-line explosiveness. He is somewhat versatile. He has played outside linebacker and now aligns inside. He is a playmaker who has untapped ability. He is a high-effort defender who can pursue and chase down plays from the back side in the run game. He can make quick reads and disrupt plays before they gain any momentum. He has enough functional strength to set the edge on the outside. He can bend the edge and close with a burst to the quarterback. He is a valuable kickoff cover guy who can blow up a ball carrier. But Thompson has a lot of holes in his game. He isn't a very good take-on player. He prefers to slip blocks and isn't very explosive or technically sound in stack-and-shed mode. He lacks fluidity and struggles to flip his hips in space. He makes occasional jaw-dropping plays, but not consistently. He doesn't pick things up quickly.

Default Re: LB Chaun Thompson to visit

As a West Texas A&M University graduate, and as a fan who has seen virtually every WTAMU home game since 1997, I can say that Chaun is THE type of player and PERSON that McNair wants on this team.

I have seen Chaun play for WTAMU, and I have followed him during the time he spent on the Browns. He was mostly a 3rd down LB due to 4.53 speed (used as a blitzer on most 3rd downs), but he started getting lots more reps due to some injuries to other LBs on the team. From what I remember, he began playing a fairly large role over the course of many seasons in Cleveland. IMO, he was a casualty of a crowded LB crew, and a lot of his interviews tend to point towards that assumption.

As a person, Chaun is top notch. He hasn't forgotten his home, where he came from, and he gives a lot back to this area. He needed some hours to get a degree, and he finished it up after going pro. He's a dedicated person.

I'm obviously a homer for the guy. Would love to see us sign him.

Here's some articles on Chaun from our local newspaper:

A Good Pre-Draft Article With Lots of Background Info

Quote:
"In his years at WT, Thompson had shifted position, seen a succession of position coaches come and go, lost his grandmother and recovered from a broken elbow. His statistics were good but not spectacular. Thompson played most of his senior season in 2002 hobbled with an ankle sprain but recorded 100 tackles for the third straight season.

"He played hard every down," Head Coach Ronnie Jones said. "People in the conference were aware of him and what he meant to our team. It's a tribute to him and his character that he was named LSC linebacker of the year and all-conference and all-American."
Chaun Returns Home to WTAMU

Quote:
"This is a pleasure. Every time I sign an autograph, maybe it will change somebody's life for the better. I know that if I make a mistake, all this could end. People are looking up to me, and I know I've got to provide a positive role model," Thompson said.
Thompson Interview After Losing to the Texans in '06 Season

Quote:
"I know this team is getting better," the 6-2, 250-pounder said. "It's all about making plays in this league. If you make them, you win. If you don't, you lose."

Thompson has been an iron man since the start of his NFL career. He has played in all 64 Browns games since he has been a pro, starting 13 in 2004 and 15 in 2005.

I think the switch from a 3-4 D to our 4-3 D could really help the kid.

On the plus side he is durable depth at the worst...if we even sign him.

I am hoping he is at least a better version than Danny clark

for me, we still need holes filled for we still need a draft or two (good ones) so I am hoping if he were to sign he can fill a spot or two and he can play ST

Will Demps was IR'd and was playing for the Giants.
Kevin Walter was playing behind Chad, TJ, and Chris Henry
Andre Davis until last year was injury prone and could not stay healthy
Rosenfels was playing against the ghost of Moreno. No QB that has gone there has had any type of success since.

I am not trying to be negative but we are looking for upgrades and I just dont see how a guy who cant beat out guys who wouldnt have been able to start for our team, come in and help us out.

I think we are doing like last year, not overspending and building depth.. Drafting is the key here, we have to get our "Studs" through the draft

Looks like Thompson is soon-to-be off the table:


Quote:
Thursday, March 13, 2008
Tony Grossi
Plain Dealer Reporter

Nearly tapped out in free-agency spending without having added any linebackers, the Browns are focusing on re-signing Chaun Thompson.

They have been negotiating to bring back the defensive role player and special teams contributor, and hope to have a two-year deal done today. Thompson, a second-round draft choice of the Browns in 2003, has not visited any other teams.

The good news is that we fans don't have to see it. While you tried to spin them, those moves they were either not thought of or thought of negatively at the time they occurred by the general fanbase. All of those guys helped us become better than we were. Upgrading player number 42 just does seem like much in March. We will have to see in October.
