There's nothing factually incorrect in that excerpt, but they sure did leave out some interesting stuff between 2009 and 2012. I guess that part doesn't really count.
Well to some people who know little about football it doesn't count but tell that to the players that actually play the game and know.
He had fumbling troubles in TB
Muffed a punt in each of the last two games. Too bad he couldn't seize the opportunity ... Tampa's return game has been an atrocity this year.
Hope he can find a home in Buffalo. It’s an odd signing with CJ Spiller (unless of course something happened to CJ)
But if he does stick. He better show up to a game or 2 in Hamilton!
