Definitely. It isn't out of the question that he could beat out Thomas for the #2 or play the slot.

You can't discount his knowledge of the system.

I can't believe what I am hearing and seeing here regarding DJ Hackett. He couldn't stay healthy in Seattle and couldn't stay healthy in Carolina. Knowing the system and JZ is all fine and good but I would have liked to have seen a move to bolster the O line. The Panthers had such little faith in him they cut him and are going with Dwayne Jarrett as there No. 3. So you do the math on that one.

So you'd want them to pick up a cheap offensive lineman just like the ones we already have? Because it's not like Hackett is some major acquisition, he is probably here on the vet min.

Don't think i want DJ to be our #3 i want DT & MK out their playing but he would be a good #5 if he stays healthy. I want all are WR to be #1's make Zorn's decision a difficult one.

Teams make personnel moves all the time. Hackett was a poor fit for Carolina who is not a west coast team. Dwayne Jarrett was a second round pick. I would think they would want him to get a shot at some point.

Kelly, Thomas and R. Williams can't stay healthy either. Who would you rather count on? Marko Mitchell? Hagans? Eloi?

It seems that the coaches do not want to bring another O-lineman in right now. So we have to live with it.

Re: DJ Hackett has signed and is at practice

Man, Hackett is a nice signing. He has experience in the west coast offense and Zorn is familiar with him. If he stays healthy and I realize that is a big if, he is a very good #4 or #5 and can even start if needed due to injury. If he cant stay healthy we cut him and move on with one of the young guys. I have no problem at all with this pickup.

Re: DJ Hackett has signed and is at practice

If he can stay Healthy he is a great pick up. Thats the key. This guy has a history of injuries. That was my point.

Re: DJ Hackett has signed and is at practice

He could be a great signing. If and I stress if he can stay healthy. He has been known for injuries and also what rubs me the wrong way about him...is last season we tried to sign him and he blew us off and signed with the panthers for more money so maybe my perception of him is a little biased.

that's what i don't get on all the get a lineman talk, if we can get a proven starter, then great, but if we are picking up another body, we've got those.

And the same question goes for our running backs, we can't keep Aldrige with Sellers, Portis, Betts, Cartwright, and/or Eddie Williams?
There's a long way to go before we cut down to 53. Hard to tell who makes it just yet.

This makes me laugh. I remember earlier in the offseason, people had a "young player fever", where they just wanted any young player b/c they were tired of old player, nevermind their skills, people just wanted yutes (as Joe Pesci would say it.

Now they have the "offensive lineman fever", they want any offensive lineman who can stand upright. LOL.

Speaking of lineman, I just heard this about the once-sought Khalif Barnes

Scout.com: Report: Barnes out 4-6 weeks

It seems like he's going to be out more like 6 to 8 weeks in some later reports.

Re: DJ Hackett has signed and is at practice

I think Levi Brown would be a great signing for this team, but he's not a starter for us, and I think he wants to start.

That's the question, because I don't think anyone is going to sign him to start at this point.

If the season had starter already all or most of the players who are injuried would be able to play. In training camp all of the vets seem to get some type of injury which allows them to take some time off from practice. These injuries are nothing except Heyer's maybe be the most serious. As for DJ Hacket what happen last year and the year before has nothing to due with him now. Any player can get injuired on any play during camp or a game. DJ can also play special teams , so he has a good shot at making the roster.

This is a good indicator that the Skins will keep 6 WRs though.
DJ Hacket knows this system which is a big plus and he has game time experience. He has the size at 6-2 and he can make the tuff catches. He should make the 53 man roster.
