Felt it was board worthy and I'm bored so I'm posting it. Former UM TE Martell Webb was picked up by the Browns today.
If you're saying "who?" it's because he played for us during the very forgetable 2007-2010 period only totalling 9 receptions for 111 yards and 2 touchdowns in an offense that didn't really feature tight ends.
He has bounced around a few practice squads but hopefully he finds a role for Cleveland.
I cannot make it to FanFest, I get one trip to AA a year and I'm using that for Under the Lights..
But I am going to Syracuse's tonight.. (hour drive) and hoping to meet RB coach Tyrone Wheatley. Great honor to meet some of these guys that killed it in this program.
Saw Martell Webb at Eagles Camp earlier this week... He was nice enough to go out of his way for this UM fan (dressed in UM gear head to toe) and sign a michigan helmet for me.
Does anyone else out of the area have any chances to meet these guys in places closer to them rather than having to travel to AA?
I don't have anything to add to this one, and I don't want to bloviate for another 160-some words to make this pass the diary minimum, so here we are.
I myself hate trite postings, but I just have to give Webb props for his play on Saturday. He recovered that fumble down near the opposing teams endzone, and on Denard's long run he threw a kick-ass block. Seems like a great move to have him at that h-back like position in the backfield. What an offense!
One of my friends works with the trainers and told me that as an April Fools prank, kevin koger and martell webb switched jerseys so that koger was wearing #80 and webb was wearing #86. They sort of look alike and apparently it gave everyone fits. Has anyone else heard of players pulling off pranks like this? I personally think this is hilarious.
