    Did the Broncos cut Daniel Graham already?

    I had said in another post that I would NOT be worried as they had not signed a tight end...well I guess they did...I wonder who??

    I've heard of this Rivers guy before. I guess he's good depth.

    Great work..I started my post without knowing and after I posted it..the name appeared..THANKS!! Seems he is more of a receiving tight end as opposed to a blocker. At least he's healthy..and I am sure will get work in teh TB game.

    A training camp body and then fodder for the "shadow roster" IMHO.

    Triple ditto that. This is just for practice purposes, to help the engine go until the actual players get back. YAWN.

    #95 Jersey

    Re: Pats sign unidentified #82

    Maybe if they'd start drafting a tight end once in a while, this wouldn't happen...

    If you look at this guys bio on Reiss' pieces, in one year he had like 25 tackles. Either that is a misprint or this guy is Mr. Versatile or a special teams demon.

    Yep those were special teams tackles per NFLPlayers.com. But NFL.com doesn't usually list special teams tackles (unless I'm mistaken), so that's odd.

    He's Larry Izzo, Asante Samuel and O.J. Santiago's replacement...or maybe just O.J.'s...

    Well O.J. lasted less than 24 hours with the Pats.

    Let's hope he's more of a Walter Rasby or Chris Luzar.
