    I meant signed during the actual season. Almost everyone has a job in the preseason...

    Xavier Adibi is a bust. he's obviously not desirable because the only defense that gave him a shot was the 32nd defense in the NFL.

    Go ahead, over hype him. Just like you said, he's probably not a scrub just like Bailey and Shaw...

    Tony Brown and Frank Wychek came to this franchise the same way. . . . . . . Coaching genius Norv Turner cut Wycheck from the Washington Racial Slurs because Wycheck did not do well when Turner tried to make him a fullback :hugelaugh:

    It's pre-season but it's better than "Adibi came in because three guys got hurt.....he played against the Browns had his hands on Colt McCoy for two potential sacks but both times McCoy shoved him to the ground, stood on his back and completed touchdown passes. Adibi also missed every tackle that came his way and was cut during halftime":D

    good question. why do you think he's so desirable? I guarantee we were the first team to call him for months.

    Anyone remember the scrub Vanden Bosch was when he came? We've had quite a few stories like that.

    It's just as silly to completely write someone off as it is to "hype them". These guys got to the NFL for a reason... it's there- just depends on if they use it or not.

    I looked up his draft profile and they asked what was his favorite reality show. His answer: "I don't like reality shows". I like this guy already..

    He's been playing behind good linebackers in Houston...sometimes when guys like this finally get their chance they run with it...hopefully that's the case with him.

    Well every time he's been waived he's been claimed. His issue is health and numbers related. He's got ability.

    He got cut at a time where it was too late for other teams to bring new guys in.

    Titans need depth. He is depth. Problem solved. If it doesn't work out? Next man up.

    As a fan, I like that it is someone that I've heard of and he has NFL experience.
