I think he'll bring a breath of fresh air to the offense, especially with his out of the backfield 3rd down presence.

He's had two chances to make this team. The cut him in camp, there was chance one. Just a few weeks ago they tried him out when Davenport was "injured", and he didn't show them anything to make them want to sign him.

They may call, but I doubt much has changed. The only difference is now FWP is on IR and we don't have to cut anyone. But if he showed nothing a few weeks ago, I doubt whatever it was that has scared everyone off has changed.

His knee is either still bothering him, or the injury took some quality he had away...either his speed, cutting, or maybe he crumples up like a ball when he thinks there might be contact.

Amen to that.

To Verron, I say welcome home to the Pittsburgh Steelers. Looking forward to hearing on the PA System your name at Heinz Field and all over the NFL. It would be nice to see you win a 2nd Super Bowl with us.

idk if you guys remember domanick davis who was a three time (i think) 1,000 yard rusher for the texans when they first started.. he's changed his name since then to domanick williams... why not pick him up... he's already proved he can be a starter...

During his freshman year, Vincent began the season near the bottom of the depth chart. Vincent split time on the third string but beat out his fellow freshmen for playing time, and by the middle of the season, Addai and Carey were injured. He was named the starter in week 7 against South Carolina, and never lost the job for the rest of the season.

While LSU made its stretch run to the national championship, Vincent became the offensive leader. In LSU's final four games, he ran for 100 or more yards. This included a 201-yard, two touchdown performance in the SEC Championship Game against Georgia. His performance included an 87-yard touchdown run (the longest run in SEC Championship Game history) and a 62-yard run. Then, in the 2004 Sugar Bowl against Oklahoma, he ran for 117 yards and a touchdown. It included a 64-yard run from the first play from scrimmage, which helped set the tone for the game. Vincent was named the MVP of both the 2003 SEC Championship Game and the 2004 Sugar Bowl, and LSU won the 2003 BCS National Championship. He finished the 2003 season with 1,001 yards on 154 carries, and scored 10 touchdowns.

Vincent's next three years at LSU were marked with inconsistency, fumbles and injury. He began 2004 as the starter, but eventually fell behind Joseph Addai and Alley Broussard on the depth chart. He finished third on the team in rushing with 322 yards.

In 2005, he moved back up to second string behind Joseph Addai. He finished the season with 488 yards rushing. However, Vincent suffered a serious knee injury at the end of the season in LSU's Peach Bowl victory over Miami.

Vincent was the starting tailback for 5 games in the 2006 season, after recovering from his knee injury. However, his senior season was the least productive of his four years at LSU. He was part of a five-man running back rotation and he finished 6th on the team in rushing at the end of the regular season with 139 yards. He averaged 3.1 yards per carry, lowest among the five running backs. However, in the 2007 Sugar Bowl, he had his best game of the season, gaining 71 yards on 12 carries.

Vincent was signed by the Atlanta Falcons on May 1, 2007, but on September 1, 2007 it was announced that he was cut from the Falcons final roster. On October 4, 2007, he signed with the Pittsburgh Steelers as a member of the practice squad.

would like to see what russell can do but will welcome veron back.

I welcome veron back too but I would really like to see Davis run the ball more and to see russell in action. Davenport did GREAT last night. They couldn't bring him down.

There is a reason Verron was cut. There must be better options instead of trying to retread a worn tire. Sorry but there has to be a reason he isn't on the team. Go for Russell or for someone else that may be available that won't mind being the 3rd or 4th string guy.

If Verron is still the same Haynes he has been, then I welcome him back. We're missing that punch in the running game this year. And I don't mean anything against Willie, cause I've always liked what Willie brought to the table. We just need more power running in the mix.

I like Verron, wonder what kind of shape he is in? I also wouldn't mind seeing what Russell can do.

Good idea, but won't work. Covert Billy requires all former players to take an amnesia pill when leaving the team. :eye:

Why don't we just give Davis and Russell their shots? By all accounts (and in spite of all the love for his past accomplishments by the SF faithful), Verron is done.

Time to let it go.
