I was surfing the web today and reading Sean's story about the 53-man roster. Here is the link I got and I think it is reliable.
Now there has been a lot of hype about Joique Bell. If you look closely at the link, JOIQUE BELL IS A FREE AGENT.
I know fellow PoD commenters have been high on Bell. He still is qualified for practice squad but i doubt he would clear waviers or not get signed by another team. Our Lions have had some trouble on the ground after LeShoure went down. I wanna know what some of you think of taking a look at Bell.
UPDATE: After seeing the Saints game, I figured out Bell is not a free agent. Sorry for that.
Another thing i noticed is the list of full backs. Now i know that we rarely use a full back in our offense but there are some noteable names on the list.
Deon Anderson- I remeber him as a good lead blocking fullback but he has had trouble with injuries and the law.
Madison Hedgecock- Once called the best fullback in the league. Don't really know why he was released
Mike Karney- used to be a good fullback but is too old now
Tony Richardson- One of the best fullbacks ever. Old though.
Naufahu Tahi- Younger fullback that was very good leadblocker. Again, don't know why he was cut
Leonard Weaver- Good fullback but never reconized him as a "leadblocker"
Now, from all of those names I would take Richardson. I know he is old as hell but he was maybe the best run blocker ever. We could use a good run blocker.
Then i went a lookin at the DB's. Found some noteable names as well.
CB> Kevin Dockery- Always thought of Dockery as a good corner but also noticed his production drop off.
CB> Ellis Hobbs- Used to have good potential and promise. Dont really know what happend.
FS> Tanard Jackson- Was one of the better safties a couple years ago.
SS> Lawyer Milloy- Isn't he like 50 somethin?
FS> Darren Sharper- You mean the Sharper guy that played for Green Bay and Minnosota? And the one who was a big part of the Saints championship? Yes that old fella. He's a free agent.
SS> Roy Williams- Wait... isn't he like 60 somethin?
Well would any be mad that I would say lets give Sharper a look? He might be old but he could even be a mentor to Speivey and Delmas.
Well Lions fan give me your comments. Good or bad.
