    It was an undisclosed pic.

    Maybe to the practice squad? I hope anyway...

    I hope this doesn't mean the Taylor injury is worse than first thought.

    I think when you sign someone off of another teams practice squad you must sign them to your active roster for a certain number of weeks.

    This is surprising. I don't think anyone on this board or in the media thought Clayton was good enough to make this team in camp.

    #12 Jersey

    I thought he had a pretty good chance, although I also thought he'd be potentially beating out BJGE for the #5 spot, so I'm at best half right. Loved him in the preseason though.

    You, DaBruinz and dryheat basically, at differing times. Nobody else had him at anything higher than practice squad.

    Didn't think he'd make the 53 however I was positively impressed by him and figuring on the aged RBs thought he might get called up later in the season. Never expected LoMo to Denvah though.

    I thought he would make it over Taylor in the offseason.

    Well that drops our trade success rate down some more.

    It was a conditional pick, so we most likely traded nothing for a shot at something that turned out to be nothing. Are you seriously going to claim that that's some kind of failure on the FO's part?

    Nope just messing around.

    But you know what will happen next, Ojinnaka will be picked up by some team and become a Pro-Bowler, probably by the Jets, it's too obvious.

    I though I'd read Reiss saying it was NOT a conditional pick

    Regardless, there was a time BEFORE Connoley showed he at least belonged on the regular season field when it appeared as though we really needed OL depth. BB and Scar had seem Quinn up close and personal in the team scrimmages with ATL. They thought the insurance was worth the price. I am disappointed that they eventually realized that the big fat guy was useless.
