I wasn't a Swoope guy, but I think it is funny that people sighting his concussion history as a problem are many of the same people saying that our multiple draft picks rehabbing surgeries are no big deal?
The above post is not subject to penalty under the TOS I declare the Hayden Fox defense. " It is impossible for the staff to know my context therefore I cannot be penalized"
for a 6th round pick id take him in a heart beat
Jeff Fuller a WR currently on our squad and once regarded as a high draft pick before his senior year at Texas A&M also suffered concussions. We picked him up as a college free agent last year and it is not looking good for him so far. Concussions take alot of reciever a long time to get over if they every do as their sense of taking a hit over the middle plays on their phsyce.
p.s. I should add that due to the large amount of brain damage to soldiers due to IEDs, we are learning a lot but have a very long way to go. But in the NFL, admitting that players do have problems is the first big step.
Poor kid, makes it this far and can't get on the field. and with the plays and passes he was running last year he must of been worried every play could of been a concussion because Johnny football was hitting him in traffic in areas that receivers take big hits. Couldnt of been fun for swope, hope the kid gets better.
The kid has rare ability on the football field. He runs good routes, has decent size, is fast, quick, jumps well, separates well, has good hands, and has proven very productive in this type of offense in college under our OC and QB. I'd take a flyer on that 8 days a week.
If Ross is worried about the negative PR that can come from having/waiving a player with concussion problems, fine, then there is nothing Ireland, Philbin or anyone else can do about it. But purely from a football standpoint, I'd take the chance on the guy. He may become Jahvid Best, or he may simply be an investment like Lattimore but at a less important position.
Either way, this kid has exceptional ability, and if he gets cut, I definitely hope we bring him to Miami.
