    Love it. Ogbonnaya is a solid player and might be a late bloomer, I think he'll do well in this scheme and he's another big back. He has the same build as Foster, but with Foster and Tate already on the roster..he might have a tough time sticking. I think we need to pick up a quick scat back to compliment our physical runners....basically what Slaton was supposed to be, but isn't.

    As for the other guys, Cole Pemberton was in our camp.

    These are all practice squad players being promoted to the regular off-season squad. Future simply refers to the fact the contract does not start until the official start of the next NFL season which is normally early in March.

    At least we got a FS in Baker............although he was out a good part of 2009 with a leg injury (he was projected as a 7th rounder or undrafted) prior to the 2010 draft. Had some history of interceptions during his collegiate career. We stay consistent trying to get players already injured.

    I'm pretty sure Pemberton was here pre-season '10 as well. I'm surprised about Obny-whatever, I thought he was a decent player in the pros. I guess not.

    I honestly thought we were going to take Chris Ogbonnaya in the 2008 draft. He's a strong one-cut runner.
