Signing, sighing, same thing

A sighing signing.  A signing that inspires sighs?  Hehe, nice catch.

I still like this move.  It's the smart move.  Hopefully we won't "need" him long, but in the meantime here's a great chance for him to prove himself again/initially/finally.  Earn a PR spot.

I think this fires him up.  And he does already know all the formations, blocking, etc.  Let's cheer the dude on!!!  It's clear we need more depth, having this guy on PR, IR or couch-roster (CR) gives us a backup-to-the-backup.  Kudos to all parties for not bridge-burning on the way out.

Thanks.

These have to be the most underwhelming stats ever for a person brought into play pro football for the Bombers.

Has Danny gone on a world vacation cruise and is out of touch with any prospective pros? Past or present?

Oh well.  It's not how your start its how you finish.

Looks like it's a direct to PR transition for Mcknight, could be like Naaman Roosevelt last season signed strictly as a  backup.

Tough finding NFL cuts this time of the year. The NFL won't starting cutting players for a few weeks so McKnight will have to do for now.

Now faced with seeing what it's like on the couch with zero phone rings, he might up his game.  This could be his last shot (anywhere).

What I'm curious to see is if Buck/Zach give him some targets (they should).  I would expect teams will just ignore him (as much as you can ignore any receiver).

If I want the Bombers to pick up a free agent wide receiver it would be Deontae Spencer.

Elks cut Canadian receiver Mike Jones. It's worth a call to his agent. He might be a good depth player to consider. We don't really have any extra  healthy Canadian receivers with O'Leary-Orange on 6 game IR.

Nuh-uh, watched this guy drop too many passes over the years, other than his passport he has no upside.
