    I don't know anything about him, says he was the Chargers 4th CB and he's big for the position, 6-1" 205. I hope he can help and plays better than what the article refers to.

    Nothing on the transactions page at ht.com about who got cut. What's the current roster limit? Is it 65?

    Gordon missed 2 tackles against Arizona last week......one on STs and the other playing CB. Evidently, that may have been part of a decision to release him.

    Came across this SI 2006 draft profile. Leaving out the tackling/physicality problem, I felt like I was reading a description of Reeves when we first obtained him.

    So he signed a second round tender, then they just cut him?

    What am I missing here?

    Just a crappy preseason and camp, and playing with no fire. That's what I gleened from the article.

    Charger FAns are happy to see him go.

    & I found this article

    Sounds like another player full of potential.

    I think this was our best shot of getting a player named Cletis .

    That is how it is for every team, including the Steelers during preseason.

    Meh, there will be more to choose from when the rosters are cut down, especially the last cut.

    We should be hovering like vultures over teams like the Ravens, Steelers and other teams that are stacked with DB talent. Possibly even a DT out there somewhere.

    or a mouth breathing inbred.

    Reminds me of a story.....

    We've got a family member who got confused regarding a part of the female anatomy and called it a cletis. Not as a tongue in cheek thing, but very serious.

    *sigh*
