Interesting - shouldn't have much trouble on the road if he goes and plays in a loud environment - he has a significantly hearing impairment:

A lip reader will make a nice additon to the locker room. And there are also the interesting possibilities on the side line as he looks into huddles and scans the opponents side line.

Derrick Coleman and Anthony Mason were in a battle for "Fattest Ass in the NBA" for over a decade.

Mason clearly won.

Looks like an athletic FB depth addition here. Guy was ranked as the #2 FB in the nation by ESPN coming out of high school.

Also ran track in the 100m in high school, but dunno if he weighed 240 back then. Looks like the guy could have some potential.

I should have qualified with successful players, so you are right. If we're going to add Miller we must also add Big Country.

Traylor was 10 years behind Coleman and Mason, but yeah that guy was something else. Apparently he died last year from a heart attack; I had no idea.

Miller is currently serving time in the Anne Arundel County Jail (my county here out east!) for pistol whipping a dude at a party.

Coleman recently filed for bankruptcy (surprise! bankrupt NBA player).

Coleman, in spite of his several awards (inc. ROTY) just always looked lazy, if not lost, on the court to me. He coulda / shoulda been an all timer with his size and skill set. Hard to call an all star and number 1 draft pick an under-achiever, but that's how I will remember THAT Derrick Coleman.

One of my favorite threads ever. Yinka Dare and Jahidi White are pretty damn pissed right now.

Seriously though, imagine the REAL Derrick Coleman who this thread is about ever does anything. He'll have a 30 for 30 in no time and the Seahawks will FINALLLY get the air time and ESPN human interest stories they deserve...
