I saw him finally active and returning kickoffs (albeit badly) today. I know supposedly he was suffering from an injury before and that's why he didn't play, but I'm starting to think it was less about injury.

From what I saw, he was barely in on pass plays... I actually think Clowney was in on more plays than him still on offense, and I only saw DT targeted once on that screen and he dropped it.

Seems he's basically relegated to KO Return duties despite his physical talents just like he was in Washington before being released. I'm definitely disappointed in him if this is the case, as I had thought he would be a huge addition to the offense.

Being that we claimed him off waivers, didn't we assume responsibility for the remainder of his contract? If so, don't we have him signed through next year off his rookie deal? I hope so... Because if it's a coaching issue, I hope he gets utilized more next year... Or we'll just find out that he actually really sucks.

He was cut by the Redskins and you thought he was going to be a huge addition to the offense?

This was a bad landing spot for him

He is on a run first team that run very few 3 or 4 WR sets and Fox is big on seniority so Clowney is in front of him on the depth chart.

Meh. Our receivers are either rookies, practice squad players or named Steve Smith. That's about all you need to know.

He was released for a reason...and it isn't that the Skins are dumbasses and let a Top 10 wr go. LaFell and Gettis show promise. I doubt we'll see anything from DT and he won't be on the team in 2011. That goes for Clowney as well.

I feel the same way.

Disagree. The Redskins are dumbasses.

But sadly, that doesn't mean they were wrong in this case.

I imagine he'll go to camp next year, maybe be healthy. Beyond that, my expectations aren't that high.
