    With Gay going on PUP is there any chance of Spann making the team? I never got to see him in NFL Europe. Did anyone get to see a lot of him? If so, what is is the opinion, is he a clear cut or did he show something in Europe.
    Our depth at CB is pretty weak, so I think he has as much of a chance as anyone else after Hobbs and Samuel


    "UL-LAFAYETTE (April 1st/March 10th) senior defensive back/return man ANTWAIN SPANN (#6) has drawn a lot of "Under-the-Radar" attention... has been timed in the mid-to-high 4.4 range... very athletic... played mostly free safety as a senior, but being evaluated mostly as a cornerback... aggressive... pretty good tackler for his size... also shows some explosiveness when given the chance to return kickoffs... recorded 68 tackles, 1.5 tackles for loss, four interceptions and nine pass breakups, as a senior... led the team with four interceptions, also returned one for a touchdown and averaged 22.2 yards on returns of those interceptions... averaged 27.2 yards per kickoff return in limited chances (four)... had six interceptions and 15 pass breakups over the past two years... scored a pair of touchdowns on turnovers... weighs 5112, 188 pounds... transferred from Mississippi Gulf Coast CC... California native. "

    Again - Gay could come off the PUP as early as this minute. This is just a precaution in case he has to go on the real PUP at the season's start. If that happens (HIGHLY unlikely), then we can start worrying about if Antwain Spann will make the team. He's at the bottom of the depth chart as it stands.

    Gloomy realists aside...:D

    Spann played well in NFLE, working into the rotation and eventually starting. He had three picks and a couple more dropped, often in big play situations near the goal line. He did play some Special Teams and did okay. He was hurt and missed some time, I'm not sure how healthy he is coming into camp, but the kid has a fighting chance for the Practice Squad.

    NFLE players never make the roster. Rohan Davey was the only exception and he had already been on the roster and only lasted a year after NFLE. An assignment to NFLE by the Pats is the kiss of death

    Another exception would be Adam V., who was a free agent signing out of NFLE as I recall. Paul
