So, let's discuss Anthony Aldridge, our newest signed player

another small scatback type, was on Denver's roster last year but tore a ligament in his foot before the season started, went to college of U of Houston

looks like we're bringing in a few guys to compete for the returner spot and possibly a change of pace back if that works out

we claimed him off of waivers, the vikes also were looking to get him but we got him because we had the lower record last year

measurables:
5.9" 175 4.38 40 yd dash out of college, not sure what he'd be at now, after the foot injury and all

draft profile from last year:
SI.com - 2008 NFL Draft - Anthony Alridge

apparently not good after contact (to be expected) but is shifty and elusive and can also play slot receiver

Broncos release Shaw, sign former CU player : Broncos : The Rocky Mountain News



Looks like we're trying to find our Sproles in the rough or at least a Rock/ARE return replacement. Sorry if it seems like I'm hyping him up, don't get too excited yet guys.

He's definitely worth checking out. Fast as lightning and can break one at any time. Why not?

My last name is the same as his, so naturally I'm hoping he'll turn into a big superstar and they'll start selling jerseys of his so I can buy one.

i say either him or the other guy from the CFL league make the roster. Thats how bad we need a change of pace back and a guy that can take it to the house at any moment other than tana.

I definitely think we're looking for return men. ARE won't be returning punts this year.

I can see Aldridge taking a screen or a short pass and turning it into 6 for us. The more I watch him, the faster he looks. I could see him being a threat in our offense. He's got some moves. A little space and he's GONE!

I'd love to have a Sproles type player. (Sproles himself). I just don't want another Trung Canidate.

Well with quotes like these, its hard not to get excited. I'm quietly optimistic about how our FO is approaching the offseason, now for the cuts... and the draft ....

Re: So, let's discuss Anthony Aldridge, our newest signed player

Every time we get a player like this, I think why would they let him go if he was any good. Then I think of players like Chris Clemons, Antonio Pierce and Ryan Clark and think sometimes teams make mistakes. Then I realize, I cant think of any non Redskins like that and get depressed again.

If this helps...John Lynch..Kris Jenkins..Shawn Rogers..Kurt Warner, to name a few. Even James Harris was cut 3 times by the Steelers and once by the Ravens and became the defensive MVP this year.

Re: So, let's discuss Anthony Aldridge, our newest signed player

I did read the Vikes liked him, but we're in the middle of the road as far as the waiver order, so several teams passed on him as well.

His YouTube highlights are fun to watch, but he's basically a rookie having not played a down in the NFL, and he's coming off a serious foot injury. I would thrilled if he pans out, but I'm on "wait and see" mode with guys like this. I'm not having pipe dreams of Darren Sproles part 2.

I'll take a wait and see approach. Lets see if he can make it to training camp.
