Re: Undrafted Free Agents Signed

Wow, i dont even see Batch making the final roster unless Pittsburg goes with 4 QBs while Rothlesberger is on suspension. Batch is 35 years old. The Steelers could release him and he wouldnt even get a sniff from another team. If The Steelers were confident in him, they wouldnt have traded for Leftwich. Dixon is a guy Tomlin likes. He and Leftwich will probably battle it out to be the #1 and #2 guys during Rothlisbergers suspension.

interesting point for sure....

but keep in mind, between injuries and years as a back up, his legs are much fresher with much lower miles than Donovan McNabb. in fact, i'd MUCH rather have him as the backup in washington than INT-machine Rex.

As was Leftwich, something that we know all too well.

At 6'5" and 215 lbs and a 46" vertical leap, Danario Alexander has catapulted to the top of my wish list. I understand his injury history but you can't deny his 1st-2nd round talent when healthy. We would be risking nothin by signing him as an undrafted free agent. 113 catches, 1400+ yards and 14 TD's this year. Put up better numbers than Jeremy Maclin in the same offense with a less herald QB. If we take a chance on him, added to the 3 Olineman, The BEAST FB, and our new kick/punt returner, i would call this draft a COMPLETE success! lol

He actually looks pretty good from his highlight reel. Why won't he pass the physical? Injury or drug related?

Re: Undrafted Free Agents Signed

Maybe it's Tony's character thats the issue. Although I don't see a problem with it since we have others on the team with questionable character now. lol.

Former MU wide receiver Danario Alexander used to challenges - Columbia Missourian

The surgery to repair the cartilage is the fourth operation hes had on his left knee in less than three years. The first three were all ACL tears. ACL injuries aren't the career-enders they were 20 years ago. Nine in 10 athletes will recover after tearing the ligament the first time. It's the second time that does people in. Only three or four Missouri football players in the last 20 years have continued their MU careers after tearing an ACL twice. No one has come back after three. More than the physical trauma that surgery brings, it's the mental anguish of recovery that's often too much.

Re: Undrafted Free Agents Signed

^Three knee sugreies to the same knee? If this guys wants to be able to walk when he is 30 he should not play in the NFL. I do not care how physically talented he is , his knee will not hold up to the rigors of the NFL. There is more to life than football...like walking.

I think I'd bring him in. We could have;
Moss
Thomas
Kelly (with knee issue's also)
Mitchell (in training to be a R.Moss type)
Alexander (on the PS getting healthy)

If and when he's healthy enough bring him along slowly and get him up to speed. That would give us one vet and several young (hopefully) talented WR's for the future.

Really? The offense Batch has played his entire career is absolutely nothing like thw WCO run by Shanahan. It would take him atleast a year just to get where Grossman is now. Grossman is someone i never want to see start for us, but he's familiar with the system and Shanahan evidently trusted him enough to be willing to let Campbell walk for a 2012 4th rounder. I'm way more confident in Grossman than I would be in Batch. Pittsburg is the only place in the NFL where Batch has a chance to make a roster, let alone be penciled in as a starter.

Re: Undrafted Free Agents Signed

Bucs cut Guard Aaron Sears, "Sears was a second-round draft pick in 2007. He started 31 games in his first two seasons with the team, but sat out all of last season on the non-football illness list. The Bucs have not publicly discussed the reason."

Re: Undrafted Free Agents Signed

I'm more interested in his WR abilities. I honestly don't think any player will get much yards after the kick or punt with our blocking style. On a side note we have many players who are elligable to perform the KR/PR duties...

Moss
Thomas
Hall
Buchanon
Austin

Maybe Alridge. Did I miss anyone else?

If he had 4.38 speed he wouldnt be caught as often as he has in most of his returns and he'd have many more touchdowns.
