With Heimuli gone, that only leaves 5 of the pre-Quinn fringe guys on the team. By "fringe" I mean guys that were PS fodder, and who've either never made the team, or who made it only b/c of injury and were almost always inactive from that point on, so I'm also not including our own draft picks in this.

Former Missouri corner Kevin Rutland, former Jacksonville Jaguars player, worked out for the Atlanta Falcons according to a source

Aaron Wilson from Twitter

The tweet was from today, but it doesn't say that we worked him out today. It could be that opted to resign Lee instead.

We should be signing former Steelers, Ravens, Packers, Patriots...guys from winning teams that at least have been exposed to a winning atmosphere.

One of the best guys on the Ravens was a former Jag, that sat for a while. Good players can come from anywhere.

its a hard concept to grasp...maybe bad teams are bad because they can't develop talent properly. Doesn't automatically mean the player sucks. dry.png

Who are you including on that list?

Adam Replogle, Jerome Smith, Bernard Reedy, Mickey Shuler, and Sean Baker...? Those are the five I came up with.

If they've stuck around this long, I think all of the practice-squad eligible players will be heavily considered to stick around on the practice squad again. Particularly Reedy and Replogle, who has taken over for Konz on the second-string offensive line.

I actually think Sean Baker has a shot at the Final 53. With Godfrey showing nothing, Baker looks like our best option to backup Ricardo Allen at FS. I was really impressed with what Baker showed last offseason, and was happy when we kept him around.
