TBD... He has a workout scheduled in Miami... I doubt we go after ocho, but the way this teams hungry for a WR you never know. I just wish I knew whether or not Smitty is lobbying for Ocho... It's common knowledge that they were college team mates... Who knows? Stay glued to twitter and ESPN I guess

smitty hasn't before, even when 85 was lobbying for a job here. didn't seem smitty was particularly interested and that was when we had more of a need. not sure why he'd all of a sudden be interested now.

AE beats out yet another WR.

I thought he was garbage

??


AE takes a beating on this forum, but Hurney is expecting him to come on strong this season. It takes time to learn how to play WR in the NFL, especially when you played QB in college. This is his season to put up or shut up.

I can't believe we waived Wes Welker 2.0.

Serious question...what has Manno done to get put above the Wofford guy?


Serious question... do you know where our owner went?

Starvin' Darvin Adams is gonna get that sixth wide receiver spot.


I think people should keep an eye on Darvin Adams. Thought the guy was just an adjustment player for Cam given his work with him at Auburn but he stuck around on the practice squad last season. Guy just has to add some bulk and he might have a chance.

Of course. But you are basing this on Manno actually being somebody with some kind of credentials or experience. If he had any potential or shown anything in his past 5 years (graduated in 2007) of attempting to make a team in any capacity....then yes. it might be questionable why he wasn't given a more of a chance. I get the impression people don't realize Manno is no different than the Wofford guy. He's not a vet, he's not a special teams guy. All he's done in 5 years is be invited to one NFL camp and he got cut. He didn't make any preseason catches. He didn't make any preseason special teams tackles. He didn't return any kicks.

I simply don't see why people latched on to him and question why he would be cut.

Could this mean we're making room to bring Shockey back?!

Just a thought.

I cant speak for everybody, but i can tell you why I latched on.
1-He was Highly recommended by Cam, which i would think has A LOT of weight being that he's our franchise QB
2-His workout video was pretty sick
3- Very humble and personable on twitter
4-he was an underdog, and we love under dogs.
5-Kind of reminded me of a Welker (size and race) and yes I know it's silly but isn't it natural to draw these types of comparisons?

Does any of this point to him being anything special or warrant any thinking or feeling that he would make the squad? No... Of course it doesnt. I had a feeling... and it looks like i was wrong. i still hope that he catches on somewhere though and blows up. I don't know why I felt a connection with him, I just did... Also I'm not arguing over why he was cut at all. see my first post in this thread

And I'm really not trying to be an ass here.....

If Cam suggested they take a look at him, and they actually did based on that... then I think that's more than would normally be expected from the suggestions of a second year player. In the end they brought the guy in and gave him a shot...it just didn't work out.
