    Ok, he's my darkhorse for reserve LB on the 53.

    He played in five games last year .... forced a fumble on ST ... and even got two tackles playing defense..... Definitely has played more than Crable....

    I haven't heard anything about Redd...

    Does it look like he's progressing?

    Crable was on IR all year, so I'm not sure what you can draw from the fact that Redd "played more." In fact, at the end of last year, Thomas, Woods and Crable were all on IR, so Redd playing isn't remarkable.

    It's the third day of camp, a little early to figure out who is ahead, TBC or Redd. I don't think Crable is in danger from Redd, but TBC might be. Or if they keep nine LBs and Burgess isn't signed then Redd has a decent shot, I would say.

    Didn't see Redd get too many reps the practices I have been there for.

    Here is my guess....unfortunately. Wild athletic skills....and hasn't got a clue about being an OLB. Like I noted in my posts, not even the WRs beat him downfield on KO coverage, but he is the last OLB to get reps in any group or team drill. Inother words he rarely gets reps, even with the 2nd team. Read into THAT what you want. IF he can't make the team as a KO and/or Punt coverage guy, then I can't see him on the 53

    We may have ourselves the new binky who never made it (paging Jackson, Chad)

    I'm not giving up on the guy at all, but it concerns me when we're paper thin he's not getting any reps. It has to be an assignment issue, him not getting it and what not. Damn.

    weren't they lining TBC up as a DE in a 4-3 formation a bit? that could give him the edge over Redd if it comes down to choosing one of the two, unless Redd starts practicing at that position too

    i think a brace/seymour and wilfork as the tackles with adalius and pierre/crable/tbc as the ends would be interesting...mayo and guyton as the backers , with chung, meriweather, wheatley, bodden, and springs!!! sick lil 2-4-5 defensive package or somewhat of a nickel

    He may yet make someone's 53, but it looks like it won't be in Foxboro...

    Redd couldn't cut it at Virginia before transferring to Liberty. I guess he could not make the committment. For every Troy Brown that is too slow and too small but has the heart of a lion, there are hundreds of big fast guys who can't make the grade.
