He must have run into some Eagle fans while looking for real estate , and thought to himself ( I have to get the HELL out of here ) .

Re: UDFA Thread

I thought he'd signed w/ Philly, so did he ask to be released? Did they cut him? More info

Re: UDFA Thread

He must have decided that wearing that ghastly green was not worth the extra 25 cents the Eagles were offering.

Re: UDFA Thread

Lewis is a weird fit for a Shanahan offense: limited agility, goes down after the catch, can't block even the most stationary target, but he's a legit priority NFL UDFA with a receiving future in the league. He's great at playing on the football. And calling him a possession target sells his vertical ability short: he can break a cushion and run deeper intermediate 9 routes.

I don't think he'll make the crowded field at receiver here and he's probably more likely to sign elsewhere on cut day than to come back to our practice squad, but he's a good pickup. He'll likely gain a Marko Mitchell kind of buzz with catches in training camp.

No I think they got some additional players and to make room let him go. Not at all uncommon at this time of year for UDFAs to move quickly from team to team.

South Carolina is just sitting in zone against ECU, so I think that's more a scheme thing. But you're right: Lewis isn't going to run away from people after the catch.

Awesome. Not the fastest guy but everything I've read said he has great instincts and fluid hips.

No, he had the thought right after he passed through the Philly city limits.

post #69, Im already refering to him as Marko. The ECU guys didnt get alot of draft respect, I expected both to be at least drafted. I remember Spurrier talking about Lewis and Davis after that game last season, they put up some serious numbers.

Re: UDFA Thread

Lets try to remember that a lot of these guys won't even make the team. Right now I'd put my money on Thomas, Minnifield, and 1 guy from the rest of the field.

As a wisconsin season ticket holder, I can tell you that josh even making the practice squad would be a miracle. He came in as a 5star recruit ranked in the top 20 by all services, but as has been mentioned, sustained horrible injuries to both knees. He can barely run now. Great kid, no future in football IMO though sadly.

Re: UDFA Thread

I guess you can't blame blame an UDFA for not signing with a team who showed interest before the draft, yet drafted guys at the his position late in the draft.
