Often, I'm the critic. Today, I'm the one to be criticized. By myself. Less than a week ago, I mentioned my three undrafted FA's that I was excited about. Shortly after, Tim Knicky was let go. Frankly, I'm surprised that they didn't give him a shot. I am even more shocked that they're considering moving Cullen Jenkins to OLB - regardless of the situation. Cullen Jenkins in space is a scary thought. I imagine that it'll only apply to passing downs where he'll be rushing the passer, but nonetheless, this seems like a reach to me. At this stage, it appears as though Chillar will be rotating with Brad Jones. While it's true that this is the time of year to experiment, I'm much more comfortable with the notion of Chillar at OLB than I am at seeing Jenkins there.
So, now, with regard to following undrafted FA's, my eyes are on Anthony Levine & Robert Francois. As a reminder, Francois was signed mid-season last year and was on our practice squad. Also, in my last blog, I forgot to mention Alex Joseph at ILB. Prior to the draft I mentioned his name as a potential 7th round pick. He, too, will be one for me to keep my eye on - if he makes it to training camp, that is... : )
Again, it's not that I expect them to make the squad. However, it's fun to follow someone's push for a roster spot through camp. I'd like to see Levine push Bush & Peprah out. I'd like to see Francois & Joseph push Poppinga & Obiozor for spots.
