    How on earth was this guy still sitting around unsigned? Averaging just a shade over 118 tackles per season the last 3 years and all of the sudden he's not good enough for anyone? He's spent nearly his entire career in a 3-4 defense, I was hoping we would take a look at him in the offseason. I think he's going to be a good addition for the Giants.

    ironically I signed him to my Madden team which shades the current season. He starts next to Brushi. Colvin isn't that good on Madden which stinks.

    I always signed him to my Madden teams too. Mainly because he's a former Husker but still, he is a pretty good LB. He definately should have been playing somewhere this season.

    PLAYER NOTES LOG:

    Dec 27 2005 - LB Jay Foreman, a seven-year veteran who last played for Houston, was signed after Carlos Emmons and Chae Blackburn were placed on injured reserve. Foreman's father is ex-NFL running back Chuck Foreman.

    Mar 17 2005 - LB Jay Foreman was released by Houston.

    Mar 14 2005 - LB Jay Foreman has asked to be released if the Texans don't trade him. Foreman is recovering from an ankle injury that caused him to miss the final five games of last season. "In my case, with me rehabbing, saying I can seek a trade - that's saying to other teams that they're going to release me anyway," Foreman said. "The best thing for me is to just get released. If I can't get traded (soon), I need to look for something better. I'm not at a point in my career where I'm a backup. "I guess I'm not in their plans. You'd like to be here to see this team turn the corner, but obviously that's changed."

    Nov 12 2003 - LB Jay Foreman said a defense on pace to allow 6,000 yards and 434 points can be fixed. "When you give up that many yards, there is nothing else to do but fix it," Foreman said. "I'm sure looking to the next game those guys (Buffalo) are probably licking their chops."

    Huh, that might explain things. He must have still been recovering from his bum ankle. They left out the part where the Raiders signed and released him.
