An honest question then... why would the Hawks even bother signing this guy if he won't even make it to TC? So, you're thinking he's just a mini-camp player - but, camp roster spots are too precious to carry another back? I think he could stick around a bit. There must be a reason they signed him - perhaps to give a guy who deserves a shot in an NFL camp to come in and take some reps - perhaps more for the defense. Sounds like he's used to not being the back that gets the attention, so nothing new for him. If he shows something, maybe he sticks around in some capacity or, if not, on speed dial. His production dropped in 2012. I don't know enough about the player - but, perhaps that had something to do with a leg injury he had.
I appreciate the original post and further comments b/c I probably wouldn't have taken a look at him otherwise. I was unaware of his story. Pretty cool whether or not he sticks around.
