Scratching my head thinking"Surely I'd remember a player with a unique name like Stafford Reborn. When did he play? Did he change his name? What position was he?" Then I clicked on the link. Getting old sucks.

The alternative really sucks.

Point.

Penn Hills grad Hester realizes NFL dream.

There was word early in the week that he would be held out of mini-camp because of the surgery, but tweets from Raiders press indicate he has been on the field.

Also, reports on twitter that Roberts will wear #80 for the Lions. That was Anquan Bolden's number last year, so I guess that means he isn't coming back.

the article notes that corey jones invite to mini camp w the browns was rescinded. sounds like he might head to the canadian football league which is honestly a better fit and a place he could flourish with the wider more open field style.

I don't consider Toledo a "small" school, as it's pointed out numerous times throughout the article. We're mid-major sure, but not small. When I think of "small" school, I think FCS, D2 and down.

Looks like Corey Jones ended up with an invite to the Steelers mini-camp

Picture of him making an awkward catch:

A nice home town article on Hunt. Was back speaking at his high school recently.
http://www.news-herald.com/sports/201705...part-of-me

Quote:"The No. 1 thing that sticks out with me for Kareem is humility,” Duffy said. “He’s always been that way. He keeps his head on straight, and he’s a fantastic kid that’s going to play in the NFL.

Also, Lions released their min-camp roster.

Somebody should tell the writer that after beating Penn State, Michigan, and almost beating the Buckeyes; they haven't exactly been looking for another game with the Rockets. And they did play SEC teams like Mizzou, Arkansas, and Florida.

Reports that Michael Roberts has signed his contract. Reportedly 4 years, $3M; $600K signing bonus; $600 K guaranteed.

Norton also signed what I think is a standard rookie minimum contract: 3 years, $1.6M. Of course, has to make the 53 man roster to earn that.

Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,
And sorry I could not travel both
And be one traveler, long I stood
And looked down one as far as I could
To where it bent in the undergrowth;

I was given that chance, to be a speedy 6'4" 250 lb man with a penchant for catching odd looking leather balls thrown with bullet speed but I thought "no," I'd like to fit on the bus seat.

So, I'm scrawny and short and still riding the bus, but it's been a good bus.

Good luck to all our campers.
