Heard about this last night.

All I asked of the Steelers organization was to bring in Robert Tonyan, Derrick Griffin, or Phazahn Odom and give them a shot. He's not signed, but it's promising that they're giving him a look.

Btw, I hand timed him at 4.6 and change-- not sure why the "official" pro day time was so much slower. He looks faster than the pro day time on tape. I also think Zeirlekn's criticism about blocking willingness is off base. He laid that wham beautifully and with regularity in their offense... although they were primarily a passing offense-- good QB.




You must have some serious sources.

Much like my pharmaceuticals, I also get my news scoops from Canada.

that would be an at best scenario, not at worst. Why would you think a guy who they didn't even think enough to sign to a contract (nor did any other team) is a lock for any roster spot?

I said PS type as in practice squad not roster spot.. TE on the 53 is pretty much set at Green DJ X JJ,

IF (and it's a series of BIG IFs)... Ladarius Green cannot be cleared to play, and IF Odom has a big showing in minicamp and IF he gets signed and IF his good showing continues through camp... he has an outside shot at the roster.

The main reason he did not get signed yet is:
1. poor competition level
2. no school football program reputation
3. poor 40 time reported from pro day that not many saw in person

Maybe they just need to see him in person to know whether or not he has promise.

Personally, I think they roll with Green and Odom gets signed and makes the practice squad.

If if's and but's were candy and nuts we'd all have a Merry Fucking Christmas.

i consider the practice squad a roster spot. If Odom makes the PS, that would be considered a major surprise and accomplishment. He's an unsigned camp invite. Most likely camp fodder.
