wtf... damnit. I really hoped we wouldve developed him into something special. He had all the physical gifts you could hope for...

Was hoping to see him someday on the field.

The guy is put together like a tank.

Would have enjoyed watching him crush cowgirls, e-gals, and gi-ain'ts, but alas... it was not to be.

The guy looks like a hulk but looks don't mean much if you can't play.

Yeah, he mustve been real good never to have made our team even for special teams.

That sucks - he seemed like a raw talent. I wonder what Miami plans to do with him.

Also, are practice squads just free-for-alls? That is, can any team sign any player off the practice squad?

Well that goes without saying, since I'm horrible at football.

Yes; to their 53 man roster.

But not to their practice squad, right? I can't imagine a player would want to make a lateral move like that, although I guess it's possible if they thought it more likely they would get moved up to the roster on a different team.

with 4.41 40 speed and all that strenght, you wonder what he couldn't do... I mean, he should've at least been a special teams marvel.... right? you just run real fast and knock the hell outta somebody... give me some crack and I'd be a hall of fame ST'er...

They knew this could happen...if was not on the 53 man roster by now then he probably was not all that close to being in their future plans.

The writing seemed to be on the wall back in August

"He's not where we want him," Lindsey said. "Robert turned out to be a good special teams players last year, and if you're a backup linebacker here we expect you to be good in that area. But we expect him to rise this year when he's playing middle linebacker. And right now, I don't see him where we want him, and I'm not taking the blame for that."
