He could always use that 14lb ball that Peterson has been using, as long as it didn't make him tip over. (just messing around, excited about the kid)

Re: Brandon Banks

I'd bet Banks has better hands than Peterson.

Re: Brandon Banks

Maybe. This is a disadvantage that we hadn't really discussed yet as far as his weight goes..

Rich_Campbell

Tiny Justin Tryon just put Brandon Banks on the ground during an attempted run block. Again, Banks' size is a big disadvantage at WR.

Re: Brandon Banks

I saw Tryon make a big hit at the game too, don't underestimate him because of his size.

Barnes hit Jahvid Best so hard that his breakfast came back up...little guys CAN hit sometimes.

Re: Brandon Banks

Anyone remember Tim Dwight? He was 5-8/180 and returned kicks for a long time -- and did it very well too.

I remember him. He was an excellent returner but a marginal receiver. At 180 lbs. he was also 20% bigger than Banks.

Thumbs up Re: Brandon Banks

I agree with those who said,if he returns another TD on PR or even KR...He's a lock to make team. (I think he makes it regardless,unless he starts fumbling them over and over cause you can tell Shanahan loves this kid)

* Said he never raced Chris Johnson, but they do know each other from East Carolina. He and John Wall are pretty tight too. They grew up together and have known each other since he was 6 years old; Wall was at the game Friday. I guess the little dance he did after he scored was a tribute to Wall.

* Said he ran a 4.2/40 on his pro day in college. Said Tampa was the only other team he was considering.

I think Banks makes the team or at the very least goes to the practice squad. Seems like Shanny and Danny Smith are going to work with him on the fumbling and muff issues.
I'm sure 100% he's making the team and all it took was the glee on Shanahan's face as he talked about him during the post game press conference.

Yeah no. That's not how it works.

Re: Brandon Banks

If not the NFL, then maybe Sumo (not Summo) is in Banks' future

Actually no team gets a comp pick if some other team signs a guy off the first teams' practice squad. We'd get a comp pick if we let him go in free agency, and he signed with another team, and then had a nice year for them, but unfortunately if we just cut him after the preseason and put him on the practice squad he can be signed by anybody else without any repercussions.

EDIT: I see FRPLG beat me to the punch.

I don't think Roydell makes it. He had one nice catch and did nothing else notable. There are also talks of him missing blocks and assignments, which is not surprising, he hasn't played for the last 2 seasons.


I predict: Moss, Thomas, Galloway, Armstrong, Banks, Kelly.

I was rooting for Terrence Austin, but he hasn't shown a lot and I think Kelly will get on the field and save his spot, even if it's at the bottom of the depth chart. If any of those players drop out, Austin is in. If his knee doesn't improve in the next few weeks, we could put Kelly on the PUP list and keep Austin or Wade, more likely Austin.

I don't think we can cut Banks at this point. He is too valuable for returns.


Roydell and Wade were just warm bodies for camp...with the slight hopes they may do something to make the team. We bring in a ton of WRs like this every year. Roydell couldn't make our team LAST year either.

Re: Brandon Banks

What's sad about ARE's stats, that 102 yards on 17 returns included a 43-yarder...so his other 16 returns were for 59 yards (3.69 yds/ret) and 3 fumbles.

Except for ONE SINGLE RETURN, he was absolutely useless.
