Lyons Earns His Spot

On Friday, Dicky Lyons stepped onto the practice field at Dove Valley for a tryout. Three days later, he officially signed with the team as a free agent.

The team also waived rookie running back Chris Brown, who signed as a college free agent from the University of Oklahoma.

Lyons is a first-year wide receiver from the University of Kentucky. He finished his career at Kentucky with 141 receptions for 1,752 receiving yards and 18 touchdowns, ranked fifth, fourth and third, respectively, in school history.

He became the first Wildcat to post multiple touchdown receptions in three consecutive games as a sophomore in 2006.

He went to Holy Cross High School in New Orleans, where he totaled nearly 2,000 receiving yards and returned 15 kicks for touchdowns during his career.

http://deadspin.com/5029414/dicky-lyons-jr-or-a-vision-in-a-dream

AJ linked to the story of Dicky Lyons' dream in yesterday afternoon's Blogdome, but these words really deserve their own post. During SEC Media Day Kentucky wide receiver Dicky Lyons Jr. decided to liven things up by taking the media on an intimate tour of his subconscious.

"Ive been having these creepy dreams about [my fianc] leaving me. Cosmo says its natural to have these dreams. But Ive been having these dreams that shes leaving me, and this other dream the other night, I went out, and Im following her, right, because Im having suspicions.

So then I find her at this bar, and I go up to her and Im trying to talk to her. I said, What are you doing? And shes like, I just dont want to marry you. Im trying to shake her, and slap her out of it, and Im like, 'Focus!' And I slap her, and then I turn around, and Matt Stafford punches me in the nose. Matt Stafford goes, 'You dont hit women.' And then all of a sudden their backup quarterback who is now at Delta State, Blake (Barnes), he comes hitting me and then Im like fighting off all these quarterbacks, (Brian) Hoyer from Michigan State, all the guys who I was at with the Manning camp started jumping in. I did pretty well because I was biting them, I was twisting their arms, I knew all these Army Ranger tricks in my dream. I mean, it was just crazy. I was laughing about it. I texted [Stafford] and said, Im dreaming about you.

Lyons added that Stafford never responded.

I dont know if he likes me that much, Lyons said.

Oh come on Dicky, how could anybody not like you?

You're very special, but Matt Stafford? He's a gentleman and a scholar athlete.

I don't know why you'd say that.

Was it the sneer?

Was it the chain, outside of the clothing?

Was it the black on black on black outfit (with alternating-angled pinstripes, for effect)

It's obviously Brandon Stokley reincarnate. They both are from Louisiana too.

Have to say though. He had to show something to get signed from the rookie camp. Probably worked his ass off.

Is there some reason that we needed another WR on this roster instead of another RB? Is this guy a legit returner or something (I know he was in HS, but that means jack ****)?

Because the way I see it, we have a 2nd string RB that gets hurt constantly and a 3rd string RB that didn't play last year due to an injury, with 3 guys behind that who can't be any better than Brown. I would argue that none of them are better than Brown, all 3 UDFAs (2 2nd years and 1 rookie) and all with worse college stats. Add to that the fact that we now have 12 WRs (3 veterans that have started on this team, 1 highly touted rookie from last year, 2 rookies taken in the first 3 rounds this year, 2 former UDFAs and 4 UDFA rookies) and I don't really see the point in this move.

Ironically, I have seen this kid play quite a bit on TV, in 2007-8 I kept seeing Kentucky games. The guy actually reminded me a bit of Wes Welker, agile, undersized and annoying as hell to opposing defenses.
Then in 08 I heard he broke his leg (or something), missed a lot of games and the Wildcat offense ground to a halt.

Then I bumped into a bunch of KU fan last August, and asked what happened to Lyons. They said he was trying out in Atlanta, but doubted he was really ready to play again.


I LIKE the guy, from everything I've heard people in Kentucky think he's awesome!

(just my .02c)
