    Sep 9 2006 - TE O.J. Santiago (terminated from reserve/injured, injury settlement) was cut by Oakland.

    May 24 2006 - TE O.J. Santiago, a tight end by trade who made his mark in 2003 with the unexpected role as a kick blocker, was signed to a free-agent contract. Santiago started seven games for the Raiders in 2003, but made the team in part because of a willingness to play special teams -- something he had done little of with the Atlanta Falcons. Santiago responded with a pair of blocked punts. He also wound up starting seven games and caught five passes for 69 yards.

    Aug 17 2004 - TEs O.J. Santiago, Jeb Putzier and Patrick Hape are battling for the No. 3 tight end. Putzier helped himself a little by catching a touchdown against Washington and having a solid week of practice leading up to that game. But Hape has good hands and is a better blocker than Putzier, and Santiago can't be ruled out.

    Apr 16 2004 - TE O.J. Santiago has signed with the Broncos. Denver has seven tight ends on its roster.

    Jan 27 2004 - TE O.J. Santiago, a free agent, was the starter at the end of the year. That was largely because of the team's reliance on power running and his size and blocking skills.

    Maybe he can help; he is Big. It doesn't to hurt to have some size on the line

    Is this signing relative to any news I may have missed regarding Watson's status for this week?

    I'm not suggesting its related - heck Graham's health this season is reason enough to bring in another big body - but since we only have 2 major receivers I guess I'm overly concerned that Watson will miss some time.

    I understood this to be part of the planned 5 wide, no-huddle offensive planned for Houston.

    There were many on the Pats Mailing list way back when who *****ed and moaned when we didn't draft OJ Santiago. Maybe they're happy now.

    This may indicate that Ben 'Drive Killer' Watson is not healthy.

  10. I think I just wet my pants because the Pats signed this guy. I remember a couple seasons ago if I'm not mistaken, the Pats had him in training camp and they cut him. I give this guy a couple of weeks before he gets cut again.
