Default Matt Trannon released...

Thank you football Gods He was released this morning, what a wasted try out!
Plus I hear that our 5 WRs will be this:
1. Holmes
2. Ward
3. Sweed
4. Washington
5. Baker

This means Willie Reid is bye bye and Nate is one step closer to the exit!

Some think Micah Rucker might make the squad instead of Baker.

I also dont rule out that #6 could be a punt returner, but hope Moore is the starting PR, with Holmes the backup/emergency returner.

Mendenhall, Moore or Russell should be the kick returners.

who is hating on Nate?? The OP had him on the list. I think Nate starts as the #3 WR, but gonna be tough to keep Sweed off the field in 3rd and long situations.

Nate Washington would go to the HOF if we could only figure out some way to make every pass thrown his way difficult to catch. The worst thing that can happen to Washington is for the ball to be perfectly thrown and hit him right in the hands.

I for one am itching to see Micah Rucker in action this preseason. His measurables are undeniably impressive. (6'6", 221 lbs., 39" vertical, 4.5 40 yd. dash, 11'3" broad jump, etc.) Although he played at a small school with limited competition, he put up big numbers. Sounds like he could become a red zone threat at best case scenario, or possibly worst case just end up like Matt Trannon and get cut after a few years of practice squad. Whatever the case may be you never know how the UDFA's will pan out after the needle in the haystack we found named "Fast" Willie Parker.
