.... and another one bites the dust . . .
The Buccaneers cut defensive back Eugene Wilson.
Stating the obvious - it's one of the biggest shockers out there to me how the 2003 Eugene Wilson has ended up as the 2008 Eugene Wilson.
Boy - you'd have to think that anyone who knows the system is going to get some serious consideration - especially since he could likely be had for the veteran minimum at this point
What happened to him down there - I think he only had a one year contract but I think it was nearly $2 million so they must have thought he had some potential
yeah he used to be tough.
those injuries did him in. otherwise, i don't think there is an explanation for it... is there?
I don't care about the high hopes we had for him, I would take him as the 4th safety.
The guy just lost his edge and toughness. I think he got injured too many times and started to play timid. He was still decent in coverage. I am surprised he couldn't stay on as their nickelback.
Isn't it at least conceivable this is the same thing we're speculating about the Lynch cut?
I'm not sure the system works the same as the days of O-T-I-S and Terrell Buckley. Maybe a system change is why Earthland, Gino and Randell fell off the map. And, of course, Dom Capers is offically secondary coach so there might be other changes.
This screams as a "bring him back" possibility to me. I always liked him.
Id take him as a third corner right now I think.
Yeah, I always like him getting injured too . That is all he did. He's a piece of trash.
This kind of thing around here is disgusting.
Let's see, so that would make you a Light, Watson, and Colvin hater too?
Yeah thats all he ever did, right? Did you even watch 2003/2004 seasons? He was our second best d-back behind Rodney who was tremendous. He was a play maker, hard hitter, very good in coverage. I realize he is not even near what he used to be for some reason but how about you STFU before you make yourself look even stupider.
Your post would be ok if you changed it so it was Chad Jackson was always getting hurt. That is all he did. Wilson actually had a few really good seasons.
Pretty horrible thing to say. Perhaps you should rephrase it.
I think he should say it to Eugene Wilson in person.
You guys would take all former Patriots ... we should make
a shadow team called the Grey-triots.
i think the pats will take a look at him we are in need of someone
I was hoping to get a comp pick out of the Geno signing. Anyone know how this affects that, if the $2M contract guy gets cut nefore the season?
Cut before season start = no pick. (I believe you have to stay on the roster--IR counts, BTW--through week 10 or so.)
And, although you didn't ask, according to the past predictions of AdamJT13, Lynch should have no impact on the Pats' comp picks, because he signed too close to the start of the season.
We may not see it, but BB knows when he's squeezed the last bit of productivity out of a player. Look at Rosie not being able to make the Texans roster.
That works for me. But I'm sentimental when it comes to players who have been a part of great Patriots defenses in the past. And maybe Wilson is one who can still play in the NFL.
Indeed indeed. Who was it, maybe Pogo ? - who said - it's a puzzlement.
edit: note.... don't drink and then respond to moronic comments on here
Geno should've been re-tried at CB after the '05 season. It seemed to me that he had lost his taste for contact by then, and he looked tentative w/o Rodney beside him to give him courage.
If he wants to return as slot DB for the vet min +, then I'm all for it.
So says the guy that also said:
Stay classy, pal.
Oh man, I hate when you edit your drunken posts!
Eugene Wilson is the worst sort of trash. I spit on him and wish death and disease and famine upon his family. How DARE he not live up to my expectations?
Eugene Wilson I would kick you in the dick if I ever met you for what you've done. I only hope that my family and I can carry on after this.
