I wonder if Lil' Farrior is any good, wouldn't that be great? 2 brothers starting at ILB? This is the part of the year I love, whenever we sign the 1 year and rookie Free Agents and see what they do. James Harrison, Danny Krieder, Chris Hoke, and Willie Parker were all rookie FA's, I wonder what Washington and Frazier'll be doing in 5 years...

Matt Farrior was in camp last year too... He was allocated to NFL Europe and was drafted by the Frankfurt Galaxy, but must have been injured because he didn't register a single tackle. I wouldn't bet on him making the team.

Shane Boyd? Interesting.

Is Lil' Farrior actually related to James Farrior?

yea, it's his brother, I'm fairly sure something about it was in the Post Gazette last offseason.

Walter Young is an interesting prospect...I believe he was in camp last year...

Yep, Walter Young was gonna make the team until he got hurt, I think it was his Hammy. And if he shows good in camp this year he would be our big guy we didn't have this year (Like it really mattered anyway).

- Free agent P Mike Barr

yeah like he's got ANY real shot at making the team :sofunny:

Shane Boyd? Interesting.
SHANE BOYD!!!! Whoo it's exciting to see a UK player with an NFL team...it doesn't exactly happen very often.

That being said...why would an NFL team actually want Shane Boyd? The guy was constantly getting benched at QB in college. He's definitely no QB...I guess scouts are intrigued by his athletic ability and might be thinking about moving him to another position. *Shrugs*
