Gonna miss ol' ...... ol' ...... you know, ..... who's Thaddeus?
Sixth round pick by Pittsburgh in 2009.
Anyone know anything else about him?
No neck, goes by Sonny, was a training camp fan favorite.
6'3.5", 298 lbs., 4.9 40, out of Oregon.
not to mention bad haircut...
No! That's how his hair grows naturally. He just has horse pattern baldness.
I got tired reading through just half the "negatives." And this was the best profile he's had..........I suspect it was written by his mother.
In Ra'Shon "Sunny" Harris' two years in the league he was cut by the Steelers, saw time on the Panthers roster, (for a few games in 2009,) was waived and put back on their practice squad, picked up again by the Steelers when Aaron Smith went on IR, and was cut at the end of the 2010 preseason. The Bills picked him up and put him on their practice squad, and now he is another free agent.

Round 6-Ra'shon "Sonny" Harris, DL, Oregon
The Good: Athletic for his size, at 6'4" 298, having decent speed, and good build. Harris gets a good jump off the snap and is good at collapsing the pocket, and can match up well with double teams. Sonny has good versatility and could play either DE or DT in our 3-4 scheme.
The Bad: According to NFL.com, Harris needs to have a better work ethic. He's inconsistent off the snap and doesn't play with good leverage, and can be maintained in blocking, and is not very shifty in changing direction. He only started one year at Oregon.
Bottom Line: I could see Harris as being a Brett Kiesel type of player, being a late draft pick that could fit our 3-4 well, but he will need to be brought up through the practice squad system, and in my mind I'm not really liking his chances. If what is said about his work ethic is true, then I'm not seeing him on the 53 man roster come September, but if he surprises me he could be a good fit in the 3-4 defense and make a solid contribution to the defense.
2009 - 6th round (32nd pick) by the Pittsburgh Steelers
Texans really like 09 draft
Does this move mean theres a injury on DL now or maybe some one has a injury that could get worse?
If the dudes got some talent then maybe Antonio , Jamison and JJ's motor will rub off .
Or Cush and Antoine could play ping poing with him.
I was wondering that meself...
If any of this is true...
...maybe he'll occupy two blockers and help Antonio and J.J. get free quicker.
Remember... Wade's "buying the groceries" for his defense. He must have seen something in the kid.
Cody's back, Mitchell's ankle and A. Smith's shoulder were maximally limited each of them in week 10's practice.
and.... keep Mario away from him!
Guessing the DL is getting dinged up. Seems like this guy might just be a big body.
The only reason why I know who Thad Gibson is, is because I found him on our Madden depth chart. He's got the fastest speed, agility, and acceleration out of all our linebackers. He's also got the 2nd best tackling and hit rating power out of the LBs, only behind Cushing.
The kicker is that his awareness is rock bottom low, but if you control him, deadly.
I watched part of the game when he was with the Panthers in 09 (one of two games he ever played) against, guess who... Wade's Cowboys!
He wore #77 and looked BIGGER than 300 lbs.
Fell asleep during the first half.
He was in the rotatiion, with limited action (I saw him for maybe 5 snaps).
Nothing bad, nothing good.
I'll get back to it when I can.
Wonder what Wade saw in him that he likes.
The Steelers seem to like him enough to resign him twice to their PS after drafting him.
