I thought Nua was a jet last year, could be wrong think that's from Madden who's rosters are less than accurate.

Vincent was already on the practice squad. After Aaron Smith got injured, they cut Vincent and added Nua for DE depth. Now that Smith is back, they put Vincent back on the PS

i haven't heard of russell having any issues/problems.

they most likely signed a RB because of parker's knee problem.

the only "problem" I saw he once had is he missed like one practice due to personal reasons, so that's not really a problem.

I would like to see him active in a game some time soon, I think willie's first active game was like the 8th or 9th game of the 04 season. let's see what we got in the kid!

You are wrong, should have read my post. The exact opposite happened, they cut Vincent to sign Nua when Aaron Smith was hurt

From today's Post-Gazette. Now we know what the personal reasons were.

Rookie running back Gary Russell's father died Saturday in Columbus, Ohio, and was buried yesterday. Russell will rejoin the team today.
