That's about right. And I'd agree, I'd like to see it happen.

This move keeps considerable heat on young WRs Mitchell and Eloi for what might be a single roster spot. Competition is a good thing in camp, and hopefully Hackett's presence will bring the best out of the youngsters.

When Hackett is healthy, he's good. But as SS said, that isn't often. Hackett is there to put some pressure on the young bucks. If he makes the final 53, it'll mean Mitchell and Eloi weren't quite ready for the Big Show.

Mitchell & Eloi are PS eligible, but the 4 & 5 wr's often play spec. teams. That might be their shot at making the 53. I hope Mitchell can stick, he sounds like a good project that could pay off in 3 years.

Someone help me gain sanity.

Re: DJ Hackett has signed and is at practice

I like the move. I am not quite sure why Roydell Williams got the original spot over Hackett in mini-camp. All reports were that Hackett looked pretty good, unless of course, Hackett and the Skins were off in money.

Re: DJ Hackett has signed and is at practice

DJ Hackett is more than a camp body guys, this is the 5th WR, weve already got 2 young 2nd round WR's that we are counting on for production. The rest of these young guys are going on the PS...Hackett has more experience in our offense than any of the starters.....

Re: DJ Hackett has signed and is at practice

As others have said the key with Hackett is staying healthy, something he has struggled with. If he can make the team as the #5 and stay healthy he will be a nice pickup.

Apparently we've offered contracts to Hackett twice and both times he said no to the vet min. The third time was the charm.

Matty I remember you saying he might have star potential, or at least decent starter ability, after the 07 when the Skins first talked to him. I also thought he was about to breakout, maybe it was just his big game on us in the playoffs.

Maybe he wasn't a good fit for carolina or one of his injuries slowed him down a lot, cause something seems odd about his drop off last year.

He would be an excellent #5. In fact, he would make a damn good #4. I like the signing.

He's got skills, just needs to stay on the field.

Re: DJ Hackett has signed and is at practice

I like it a lot, Hackett can be like another coach to teach the WRs the system a little better. I definitely think he could be the #4. If nothing else he'll push Malcolm Kelly to get better so he makes sure he is at least the #4.

Re: DJ Hackett has signed and is at practice

Had him ranked above Bernard Berrian in last year's free agency rankings, but what a difference a year can make, huh? Doubt he makes the team.

This is a good indicator that the Skins will keep 6 WRs though.
