Re: Latest FA news from KFFL

so possible three team race for hackett, and if the bucs don't go after bryant johnson, we can't really outbid them (and we wouldn't want to, but the competition could drive the price up).

That's crazy for a QB. We're going to have a second Pillsbury Throwboy in the league.

Just checked, he was 255 last season.

It should be noted also that there are some rumors that the Panthers are giving up on Dwayne Jarrett and may look to cut him by draft day.

Should that happen, do you take a chance on him?

There's really no reason. Carolina has a really impressive record of drafting useless players in the second round (Keary Colbert, DeShaun Foster, current Redskin Eric Shelton, and now Jarrett), and I would think that history would see this as a case of Carolina overvaluing another offensive skill player in the draft as opposed to souring on him for personal reasons.

Because of his draft status, he will bounce around the league for awhile, but he's sort of in the same boat as former teammate Mike Williams at this point.

BTW--the only consistent key to breaking the curse of being a 2nd/3rd round draft pick of the Carolina Panthers or a USC WR (Jarrett is both), seems to be having the name 'Steve Smith'.

Re: Latest FA news from KFFL

didn't jarrett run a 4.7 or something last year?


nope 4.62 at pro day i imagine

03/11/08 - WR Dwayne Jarrett was arrested early Tuesday and charged with driving while impaired. He has his first court date following the incident on Wednesday. "We talked to Dwayne today and he and all our players understand that these types of situations are unacceptable," Panthers general manager Marty Hurney said. "He certainly knows how we feel."
02/07/08 - WR Dwayne Jarrett needs to get his act together and quick.


winnar!


seriously though, he's not just a "didn't live up to expectations" bust, he seems like a "truly cannot play... at all" bust.

He had what, about 35 catches and 4 TDs last year? By Raiders standards that's worth about $20M in guarantees, right?

Re: Latest FA news from KFFL

On another note, I'm happy to see the Dolphins take yet another member of the Cowboy's organization. Safety Keith Davis, who was a team captain, has left the 'Pokes for the 'Phins. Fine by me.

timmy posted a 0.0 vs dallas (4 ints < 50% completions). he won't be starting anywhere anytime soon. he definitely gets style points for being able to grab a wife way out of his league though.

Raiders deny rumors of 300-lb Russell
JaMarcus Russell | Raiders
Russell does not weigh 300 pounds and has been a regular at team headquarters for workouts since season's end, two team officials told the San Francisco Chronicle.

One front-office employee, speaking on condition of anonymity, dismissed Internet reports of an out-of-shape quarterback as "ridiculous."

The employee said: "JaMarcus is nowhere near that. He's been here. He's been working out. He's in great shape. That's something everyone's going to see at our first minicamp" in early May.


Hackett making the rounds
D.J. Hackett | Seahawks | Interested: Buccaneers? Redskins? Panthers?

Hackett will visit the Panthers on Friday, according to The Charlotte Observer.

In a 2007 season hampered by injuries, Hackett caught 32 passes for 384 yards and three touchdowns. At 26, Hackett could be the No. 2 receiver the Panthers need to complement Steve Smith.

The newspaper also reported Hackett will visit the Redskins and Buccaneers.
