    Yeah, I see some of them too.

    Kind of off the subject, where is Todd Wade?

    I can't find him on anyone's roster.

    Did he just retire?

    Good grief, if he just retired...

    He's been working out in Houston.

    Last I heard he worked out for N.O. I haven't heard anything since.

    Right now I just see decent receivers. WR Sloan Thomas, Koren Robinson, Troy Edwards and Pinkston.

    If you ask me - Sloan or Pinkston would be my pick. Sloan has some KR experience.

    WR Martin Nance might be worth something. I don't know how his ST play is, though, so he might just be a bigger version of Derick Armstrong.

    The real prospects won't be cut until its time to go to 53.

    Cincinnati: Released LB Hannibal Navies and OG Steven Vierra

    PLEASE tell me he uses his first name on his jersey. That is epic, especially for a LB. Reckon he's a scrub though. Oh well.

    We need to get this guy any way possible. I want to hear the commentators try and pronounce his name.

    Its a different situation. In the Eagles offense, Pinkston played a very specific role. He did well in that role.

    He would probably fare much better in another teams offense statwise.

    Gaffney was brought in as a slot receiver, which he will most likely lose to either a 4th round draft pick, or a UDFA.

    Not very promising for Gaffney Im afraid.

    Absolutely. Didn't even need to look at your link. I follow TTU failry closely, and Slay is a hitter.

    Did you see him almost decapitate the Kansas State QB when the QB tried to run up the middle? Ugly stuff, man. It looked like something out of a movie where a stuntman has a wire hooked on his back and gets yanked backward.

    If a player gets anywhere near Slay, he gets...well, "slayed."

    He's pretty slow, but he can put people on a cart if he gets the chance.
