He'd definitely break off 2K in our system.

However, you know someone soon will seriously call for him to be brought in.

Yes he was Wolfpack. He was also the guy Elway's dad was pleading with Shanahan to draft. I think we went with Middlebrooks instead-if memory serves correctly.

He was a great pickup at the time for them.

He was the reason Jackson was able to develop into the great WR he is now. He had time to grow into the position.

I am guessing that the Roids are taking their toll on his body, but that is just an InTErneTs guess.

I am surprised they didn't just sit him until he was healthy, maybe there is something else we don't know about?

I'd rather defend Floyd than Chambers, to be honest. This is addition by subtraction...for us.

Yeah, he was great in his first year here in SD. The knock on him was that he could make the circus catches but drops the easy ones. But he was catching everything early on.

Last year, he screwed up his ankle and just hasn't returned to his old form. But he's only 31 so it's hard to believe that he can't come back and have a couple of more productive years at least.

The rumor floating around is that he's been pretty vocal about his decrease in playing time. What does he expect though? The guy just can't get separation like he used to and he's dropping passes like he's T.O. this season. I would have liked to see him benched and keep him for insurance later on if he gets healthy but his attitude might have been the reason to just cut ties with him now.

He would have been a free agent next year and he knew he wasn't coming back with the younger receivers here developing well. So it's not a big loss in the long term. Short term, I hope this doesn't come back to haunt them later on in the season.

He will land somewhere, not with us though.. Marshall and Royal are better and he doesn't fit the roles that Gaffney and Stokely play.

Bears?

He lost his ability to get open downfield after his ankle injury and that was really the only part of his game that was special. I'm still kind of surprised that he was cut, though. Floyd is the more effective receiver right now, but he has had injury problems every year that he's been asked to be a starter. I'm never a fan of reducing depth at a position even if it appears strong at the time.

I'm not a fan of reducing depth either but we need to sign another linebacker to cover for the injuries to Dobbins and Burnett.
