Rivers-Bengals far from signing
- The Bengals needed help at outside linebacker when they drafted Keith Rivers out of USC. The team has been impressed with free agent Brandon Johnson, but you do not replace a Keith Rivers with an undrafted free agent. Getting Rivers in camp should be priority #1, for all involved parties. Rivers has the look of a future star, and missing key reps and game experience this pre-season will not help him. While linebacker may be one of the easier positions for a rookie to transition to, Rivers needs the work.
Brennan Impresses Scouts, Coaches
- Colt Brennan fell to the sixth-round after a horrible showing in the Sugar Bowl, a forgettable Senior Bowl week and hip surgery. Oh, and he's a convicted felon in case ESPN hasn't reminded you yet this hour. The day-two gem did look good in mop-up time last night against other sixth and seventh-round players. While it is only the pre-season, Brennan has likely earned himself a roster spot. Unless he falls flat on his face next week.
Who is Alex Hall?
- He may be the Cleveland Browns starting outside linebacker before too long. The seventh-round steal from tiny St. Augustine's has looked good in camp ,and with Antwan Peek hurt, he could see immediate playing time rushing the passer.
This Just In...
- Every bit of respect Brett Favre has gained in my eyes and many others is gone today. I don't even have the words for it today.
