    Ross looks like he is going to bounce around the league some more.

    I don't get all hyped up about waiver players normally, but I really wanted Grady Jackson last year. Still wish we had him on our roster. Talk about depth, imagine Smith, Payne, Walker backed up by DeLoach, Jackson, Sears--that is a serious rotation/line that can withstand an injury. Oh well.

    It's amazing how players like Ross stand to make 6 figure contracts and all they have to do is rely on their athletic ability and act like an adult. Yet time and time again we see these dumba55es screw up and ruin it.

    Antwaan Peek could end up like that if he doesn't act smarter in a hurry. The guy is has the potential to be a star but his immaturity holds him back.

    A day after claiming Ross on waivers the New Orleans Saints released him after he missed his scheduled flight to New Orleans.
