Garbage CB.

I guess people forgot about how we fumbled several games away on returns.. But hey everyone thinks this is a great pickup to bring in a guy who has fumbled every year of his career. When he looses us a close game. You will see..

I know of a dump about 23 miles from my farm. I would be happy to pick up the garbage and pay the fee to dump rossum off there.

I have a feeling this will be like the rb we picked up from the Pats last year or a conditional draft pick. In other words probably we will not remember who he was by mid season.

What is wrong with giving the guy a chance before you throw him into the trash. Tomlin gets paid to make big time decisions along with Colbert. I say give him a chance. If he folds the I say game on but atleast let him return 1 punt.

Well, glad to see that everyone is excited abou this trade as I am. I like the pickup and I think that he will boost our return game this season. He has to be better than Ricardo Coclough and I hate to think about Holmes being out there taking more hits on punt returns than he needs to. I think that it is a good move if we didnt give up more than a 5th round pick.

It was Patrick Cobbs and he was with the Dolphins this pre-season I believe.......Cedric Cobb use to be a Pat to but he has spent the last few years with the Broncos....

im thinking he was bound to be cut by the falcons and the steelers offered a 7th if he made their roster. falcons lose nothing either way. its kinda like the bengals offering a 7th round pick to st. louis for qb fitzpatric. the rams get a pick for somebody they were gonna dump anyways.

personally i woulda rather kept haynes on the roster as a 6th back and relied of willie, wilson, and davenport on returns, however we only have 5 wr's on the roster so this is a bit of insurance for reid as our back up at the position. if rossom can prove to be a better returner, it just saves reid the wear and tear.

appearantly he is a very hard worker in practice and tough as nails. scouting report on him coming into the draft was that he was a poor mans santonio holmes.

reid could just be being groomed for bigger and better things. i dont think colclough or reid were drafted just to be career special teammers.

i think its a wasted roster spot, that should've been used on a younger prospect such as cappizzi.
