    I haven't looked for a link yet...I will now or perhaps someone has one.

    Verron already visited the Titans and is scheduled for the 49'ers.

    The Patriots want him to stop by.

    Small news but it's a human body...kind of small 222 to be a FB though?

    Haynes was an excellent 3rd down back for the Steelers. He was great at picking up blitzers and could make the odd catch. He was an ok runner too.

    He had injury problems throughout his career even though he was only a part-time player, so I don't really see him becoming a full-time RB or FB. He would be a great 3rd down guy or someone you could bring in any time you're forced to go to the shotgun.

    More like a heavier Faulk??? I'm wondering why they'd want to being someone like him in with Faulk?? Or just another back to add to the mix....Just struck me as curious..

    Faulk and Pass were considered WR candidates early on, this just may be one of many options BB is exploring to get dependable players in specific roles....
