Those three do look like they have a lot of potential. Do you think they will be picking up anymore guys or are they done for now?

I would love to see Ty Law in the black and gold :). I heard we might try to pick up Chad Brown?

Saw that the Packers and Bengals are interested in him. Says he is often injured though.

"Brown has made only 13 starts over the past two seasons, missing the second half of 2003 after surgery on his right foot. He missed three games last year after arthroscopic surgery on his left knee. "

As for his play I honestly am not sure. I haven't really watched him play lately, but the injuries concern me.

We addressed a lot of depth in LB's who knows who'll make the cut though,

I also found something else kinda interesting

Same here. I'm curious as to how good he is and what he can offer as a WR/what sets him apart.

Like I said, everyone liked him... so maybe he'll be good for competition in training camp.... maybe even make Fred Gibson Stand out a little...

John Kuhn

Kuhn was a second team all-american (divII) selection. He was the Pennsylvania State Athletic Conference Western Division Offensive Player of the Year. Shippensburg finished the season with an 8-3 record and Kuhn led the Red Raiders in rushing with 1,500 yards and scoring with 22 touchdowns for 132 points. He led the PSAC in scoring for the second year in a row.

In addition Kuhn broke the career records for rushing yards with 3,198, touchdowns with 39 and points scored with 238. He also set records for consecutive games with 100 yards rushing with 11 (the last eight of 2002 and first three of 2003) and the career record for games with 100 or more yards with 18. He also set a team record for consecutive carries without a fumble with 244

I remember Chad Brown replacing an injured player one year and outperforming everyones expectations of his abilities. His playing was phenomenal! I never understood why we released him. I knew he was going to be a great defensive player. Take him back now? I don't think so!

I don`t really won`t him back either, one thing about or defense is our LB have to be fast and quick, not old. Chad shouldn`t have a hard time finding work, with all the teams going to a 3-4, they should be looking for former players of a 3-4 to teach others

We'll pick up and drop FA's just like everybody else all thru the rest of the offseason.. most of the guys on that list dont have a chance of making the team.. but there's always a gem or 2, like willie parker for example that can shine if given the chance.
