Just because. And this was from a time when games against Northwestern didn't make you want to gouge your eyes out.
Per NFL.com. Hopefully he will find a better situation soon.
Don't know how to embed tweets, but its all over twitter, including from the Panthers' official account. Should be a good signing for them
Braylon Edwards' job is in jeopardy after the Jets signed Mohamed Massaquoi yesterday:
Steve Breaston was released by the NO Saints a couple days ago:
Mario Manningham was placed on the PUP list by the SF 49ers and will miss at least the first 6 games of the season:
David Terrell was arrested on felony drug charges a couple days ago in Chicago:
And of course, Amara Darboh is out for the season after foot surgery. Jeremy Gallon and Jason Avant need to be extra careful right now.
SLIGHT MOD EDIT - I modified the title so that people would not think that the current Michigan WR depth chart was taking further hits. LSA
Stevie Brown and Jason Avant open Giants-Philly game.
First play: Vick to Avant (tackle by Stevie Brown). Four plays later, what's becoming typical Stevie-Flash: He intercepts Vick and returns 48 yards. (Giants TD a few plays later.) The semi-bad news: Avant was injured defending Stevie's return, but the good news is he's back on the field and just made a nice 15-yd catch. (Defended by S. Brown.) Positive Brandon Graham sightings as well.
I believe that's Stevie's
10th interception* for the season, either leading or tying the current NFL season record. The injured DB he'd replaced is now playing on the other side of the field, so there's no question Stevie's solidified his starting role.
*CORRECTION: As noted below, it's his 8th interception for the season, briefly tying Chicago's Tim Jennings for the season lead. But now that Jennings has made his 9th... A great season so far for Stevie. (Unfortunately Chicago is now in the process of ending that season.)
So I know we saw Ace's gif of Avant's insane one-handed catch in the run-up to the NW game last week on here, but today on SBNation they reminded us he is in fact mortal in this gif, where he slipped on his turn and wasn't ready for the ball when it came his way.
From the opposite angle:
Tough break for Avant. Aside from this though I'm glad to see he's still mostly doing well in the NFL. I'll always remember him for that NW grab.

PS - Sorry I don't know how to make the gifs stop and start on a click like Ace does.
