I feel like what he did was normal. Young kid, went away to school, was curious, got caught up in the mayhem, exerimented. Some recover, some don't. Until a report of a failed drug test comes out in his Bills days i'll give him BOTD. I'm not sure if I agree with this being his last shot. These troublemakers always find a way to land on a team.

All our rookie corners are UDFAs. Perhaps Duke Williams was covering some guys as well but I'd assume it was the corners being beaten. Not much cause for concern as they're all a reach to make the team.

What? Lee Smith an excellent blocker. Why don't you want him on the team? I'm not sure we have a single tight end on the team that knows how to block besides Smith.

We've missed the boat on so many tight ends this offseason, aka Fred Davis, Kelce, etc.

That being said, from what I saw of Marrone's offense in 'Cuse, he's terrific at getting the best out out of mediocre TE's. Wales wasn't anything special, but because of how the O was run, he became open at the right times. I can see them using Gragg and Chanlder very similarly here. Gragg possesses the speed while Scotty has the hands, which I think could make for a pretty good dual TE set.

With Stevie, CJ, Fred, Woods, Goodwin, Graham, and Rogers all potentially being dangerous targets in the offense, that could really open up the TE position as a safety net for whoever is playing QB. Personally, with what I saw Marrone do with his EXTREMELY limited talent at Syracuse (mostly 2/3 star recruits) I am absolutely pumped to see what he does with the legitimate and explosive offensive weapons we have on this roster.

We absolutely need him, or someone like him, on the roster. Dude is a nasty blocker.

Well well well...... Geno Smith will be a Week One starter. Garrard hangs them up. Rolando McClain also retired.

They did just grab the guy from Minny who they said is a pass blocking specialist.

Heh, we're not much better. Manuel or Kolb or TJack...equally great options, wouldn't you say?

I'd take Kolb over sanchez easily. Not saying kolb is great by any stretch of the imagination, but sanchez has been a mess now that the jets d and running game aren't totally dominant. Jury's out on Smith, obviously, but I haven't heard anything good about him and didn't think he played too well in the few WVU games I caught

McClain retired so he could be put on the reserve/retired list rather than being released until he can deal with his legal problems.

Kolb is probably better than the Sanch but Manuel and Smith may be comparable.

I like it a lot. On one hand, he's a younger guy with presumably a "fresher" perspective on the game. On the other, he's been working closely with a old school guy in Nix and getting that perspective as well.

Best of both worlds as far as that goes. We'll see how it plays out, but I like the move.

Whaley's presser was hard to listen to. He seemed nervous and really dodge questions. Definitely not candid like Nix was. Say what you want about Buddy, but his pressers were entertaining.

I wouldn't care less if Whaley's presser was in Morse Code, as long as his product on the field is what is the entertaining aspect of the organization

Buddy and Chan weren't good pressers. They were just funny as hell because neither were articulate or extremly bright. Just good ol Southern boys lol

Disaster.

I did laugh though. That profootballtalk article had a link to the CBS article that broke this. On the article some fan suggested that they should have briyght back Poliam. Lmao...really? He's about as old as Buddy, he doesn't have much left in the tank.
