OK, I'm going with... He wasn't happy here and/or said the wrong thing to the wrong person. If health is an issue, we'll IR you and get you healthy for next year. No problem. But clearly that was a problem for HIM. See ya #6. There's another Hall in camp who's playing pretty well. You won't be missed. Why do I suspect he's not a "good guy" like the rest of his teammates and doesn't fit in?

Mikefive's theory: The only time you KNOW that a sports team player, coach or management member is being 100% honest is when they're NOT reciting "the company line".

Go back to leather helmets, NFL.

Well thankfully we are in a position with our WR corps not to have to hang our hat on a long shot like in years past.

Yeah, this feels like something more than just injury, with the timing.

Maybe chemical substances, maybe diva attitude, maybe football character, but something.

Wow... I'm wondering if it was attitude.

That and/or Marvin Hall took his job...

Well he went undrafted despite his upside, for a reason
I will kill you if you cut me at the knees. You will drink with me when invited and stay til I say so. We only listen to American Music. I make men nervous with just my presence. I expect an apology if you hold. I throw linemen at QB's. Believe the Lore!

That's bizarre.
He had essentially the same sports hernia surgery as Burton, at essentially the same time. Has Burton's clock run out?
Definitely something going on here.

Dude was injured in college, injured here, potentially pissed people off, and potentially wasn't anything but fast. Speed only gets you so far at WR and is about 3rd or 4th on the list of needed qualities.

Plus we have really good depth.

Damn, really bummed about this. The two college teams I care about are Iowa State and Mizzou. Woulda been nice to have two players on the Bears this year.

Total BS from Nagy, and I'm sorry to see that, but it's probably a case of being unable to write a negative letter of reference for fear of a lawsuit. If it was a numbers thing, then why was their most recent (10 days ago) signing a WR?

with that speed, he should've been pushed pretty hard at special teams and if he was sinking rather than swimming they might've just decided that an UDFA as big as him getting the ax might just be the motivation some of the others need to step up.
