landing spot. will be interesting to see how he does.
For those of you locals here in Michigan, a few former Wolverines will be at Gibraltor Trade Center in Taylor this Saturday signing autographs. Looks like the signing will be from 12:30-5 and former players will include Jeremy Gallon, Fitz Touisiant, Courtney Avery, Cam Gordon, Quinton Washington, and Thomas Gordon.
Former players Jack Kennedy and Joe Reynolds or their group name JDK and Rey, have a great song out.
It's a few months old. They released an EP awhile ago and Arcadia is by far my favorite song. I like the video too.
TJ Duckett in it is....strange....
Part of MGoBlue's 'Amaizing Sounds' series. Pretty cool seeing and hearing Fred coaching and correcting different things
As a follow-up to a previous board topic I posted, where the Lions were considering trading up to get Watkins (as well as Watkins posting pics of Lions paraphenalia on his Tumblr), it seems Sammy is at it again.
Former Clemson wide receiver Sammy Watkins isn’t concerned which team he lands with as long as he’s one of the first players picked in May’s 2014 NFL Draft.
But if the Lions, who were recently reported as having interest in Watkins, were to select him the 20-year-old wide receiver would fit right in.
“I think that would be crazy,” Watkins told FOXSports.com. “You wouldn’t be able to double-guard Megatron. You wouldn’t be able to double-guard me. Basically it would be pick your poison and then you have Golden Tate in the slot. He runs nice routes and is a very physical guy. Then you have Reggie Bush in the backfield. There would be a lot of speed in that offense.
“That’s the type of offense that I want to play in. It’s a very explosive offense. Being with good coaches, an older wide receiver and a quarterback would definitely help me out a lot.”
I am surprised that this hasn't been posted yet - Mario Manningham signed a one-year contract to return to the NY Giants. Mario had a solid first few seasons with NY, and with Nicks departing, he could see a good number of targets. Here's hoping that Mario returns from his injury and has continued success in the NFL.
Secondary NFL / Michigan topic - has anyone heard anything about Braylon making a return to the league? I haven't seen anything, but I find it hard to believe that he can't land a one-year deal at the league minimum somewhere. Just curious if there is anything out these on this.
Saw this run across my twitter feed.
Okay, either that's bad lighting or I'm somewhat color blind. Looks like a mustardy yellow or still orange.
Original tweet by guy-
#Michigan quarterbacks no longer wearing orange jerseys in practice. They are now wearing Maize (not yellow) jerseys.
Here are those Maize quarterback practice jerseys that I mentioned last week ...
EDIT: Phew. I'm not color blind. Just a bad photo. Here is a MUCH better look. And they have the B1G patch on them.
