Wow that is a surprise about Reggie, I really hope I see him in camp next year, this little guy has so much heart, he stuck it out all year and attended each and every practice and never complained once. He always took the time out to say hi to me, even if I didnt see him first he would yell over to me! I was fourtune it enough to get a pair of gloves he wore off him. Reggie you are a CLASS act and a great sprited person, I wish you nothing but success, I looked forword to meeting you in the near future! Thanks for your deadication to the team and your fans!!!
I must say that I did not see the release of Fish coming. I thought that this Saturday, we'd see more of him, not less of him. Especially if AB3 is going to sit that game out.
We release Fish yet again, only this time, we may not bring him back. I liked what I saw from him, as he caught what was thrown his way. It could be that the coaching staff likes what they are seeing in Thornton.
And Chris Williams, that return specialist we got in the Rodriguez trade is out. I didn't expect a lot from him considering a UFL team released him. And we may not have needed him much after we brought in Thigpen, of course.
Albert Smith had a sack for us in an appearance earlier this year and after seeing him play, it sure looked like we had some depth on this team.
I don't know what's in the future for these players, but I wish them all the best.
8) Reid is a back up at best. Not much of a reliable replacement for the rotating Kirk, that's for sure !!
I'm surprised he is still with the team.
Another cut...Chris Williams, highly toted when we couldn't sign him earlier in the season. Now he is simply released
without even seeing any real game action !! Another over-rated joke !! <!-- s:roll: -->:roll:<!-- s:roll: -->
Fish may be a phone call away if needed. However, any player on the PR for nearly the entire season should also be putting a contingency plan together. Perhaps Fish received a non-football job offer and has made a career move.
Guess it all depends on whether they also dropped him from their neg list - something we'll never know (unless someone has inside info perhaps?). I suspect you're right, or at least brought into camp for a tryout.
Opens up some interesting possibilities - or "nice to have" problems?
Thigpen in full time as slotback. Trade either McDaniel or Mann? (Both fairly high trade value.)
Thigpen in as full time RB. Trade Cobb? (Don't see them doing this - haven't seen enough of Thigpen pass blocking to know if he would work there full time.)
Trade Thigpen? (High trade value, but please, no. Way too dangerous to let go.)
Not sure I like any of these options. But then, how good is Williams? Even better than Thigpen maybe?
Unless he signs one of those two year contracts like Cuttino says he did before he was sent packing. Uh, yeah. :oops:
I'm trying to find the official rules for the neg list, but am not having any luck. Does someone have a link to the rules? They are written down somewhere, right? Or is it more along the lines of a gentlemen's agreement, as in "the code is more what you'd call 'guidelines' than actual rules?"
