Gotta be careful with that pot/kettle stuff these days.
Belichick had the Browns set up with 2 #1 picks the Lewis draft. The Browns moved to Baltimore and drafted Ray Lewis.
No doubt in my mind that BB had his sights on Lewis.
Missing John Lynch on that "never played a regular season game" list.
The thing with Fred was that he got hurt early in both seasons he was here.
He was off to a nice start for us in 09. Even had a 100 yard performance.
I’m trying to find ones that no one has mentioned yet..
A lot of odd names floated around from 2006-2010. Andre Davis. Artrell Hawkins. Kelley Washington. Sam Aiken. Victor Hobson. Brandon McGowan. Alex Smith (the TE) Damione Lewis, and so on..
I also find myself forgetting about Mark Anderson’s 10 sack season in 2011.
But how about this group of CB’s from 07-08: Tory James? Jason Webster? Fernando Bryant?
One of the many former Colts skill players to pass through here (like Reggie Wayne, Austin Collie, Joseph Addai, and Dwayne Allen), who may not have been mentioned yet is Anthony Gonzalez. The former first-rounder didn’t make it out of training camp in NE and subsequently retired. He now serves in the House of Representatives.
How about WR Donald Jones? He used to play for the Bills. I believe he retired during training camp due to health issues
He was good for a little while IIRC. Made me think of Tim Dwight.
Strange thing about Fred Taylor was how he never seemed to look comfortable in the passing game. He was billed as a complete back but, from day one, struggled to catch the ball, and run routes out of the backfield.
Tim Wright somehow caught 6 touchdowns on a super bowl winning team.
And was also deeply overrated by Joe Buck when he called one of our games that year.
Buck acted liked he was some sort of secret weapon. He was actually just benefiting from Gronk getting flogged by 3 defenders in the end zone every time.
RIP to that man for what Vince Wilfork did to him.
Wasn’t he on our IR like two or three times lol?
Separate names with a comma.
