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.

Really ? There are 10 PS spots if they keep 1 TE Orndorff is his main competition and they very well could keep 2

I have the PS looking like this

WR Ayers
CB S Allen
CB S Dixon
S Hagen
ILB Kelsey
TE Odom
OLB Blount
OL
OL
RB

I think its a longshot that Allen Dixon Hagen Ayers all clear waivers as well

@AaronWilson_NFL
Steelers signed former Fordham tight end Phazahn Odom following their rookie minicamp, according to a source https://twitter.com/AaronWilson_NFL/sta ... 2936882177

Signed now. 'According to a source'.

That is excellent. Good for him, B2B, and SBI.

IDK about that, clan-- no other move TEs on the roster, except for the guy whose availability is day to day.

I think he shows anything, he's got a good chance for PS, unless they sign a different move TE for that spot. I would think they want to develop someone, in case Green gets knocked out again.

Not convinced Odom is a 'move' TE. At 6'7 3/4" with 36" arms the idea that he has length is an understatement. His wingspan is like a windmill.

He's built like, and plays like a WR.

I'm confused then. I was under the impression 'move' TE's were athletic freaks of nature (90%+ Sparq) players. Odom is very average in the sparq category. That is, Except for length.

It's about what position they play. Odom is a guy you might primarily use as a seam receiver, vs. A guy like James who would primarily be an inline player. Both can do some of the other role, but it isn't their main position.
