    Well lookee here...

    I was thinking, "Wait...this guy wasn't a used up pile of crap from Dallas! Our team is useless at picking up anyone that the coaching staff hasn't already worked with! How did we get him?!" Of course it was a son-to-dad advice pickup. I'm more convinced than ever that the talent evaluators on this team need to go before this next draft.

    GOD, this front office, again!

    JD Folsom was a 7th round pick, what a bust. This front office just continues to bust on players. Had they been a REAL front office they would have traded all there draft picks for MATT RYAN. How can Ireland still have a job when he's costing us draft picks on players like Folsom.

    Man, cant wait until i get out of this armchair and really show these fools what a draft is.

    Dude what are you talking about? I have been watching this kid bounce around practice squads since Louisville! I knew it was only a matter of time before he caught on somewhere! I mean the UFL is not exactly the CFL, but hey you have to admit the father to son connection means something!

    His height/weight/speed is what we're looking for at WR but the way he's bounced all over the place makes you wonder if he'll ever amount to anything

    IF he can run back kickoffs, and throw an accurate pass, he'll be here a long time. And if the "light" goes on as a WR, he'll be signed up for life, if at all possinble. I like the organization's approach to WRs. Big and fast is the way to go, and you only have to hit on one or two to be set for the next 8-10 years. MiIAMI needs a true "burner", and a 4.38 time in the "40" qualifies...especially when the person running it has soft hands, and is 6'3"/215.

    If he ever does as well as BESS, I'd be ecstatic. Let's see what he's got!

    Well, they need an extra body if Hartline and Marshall can't go. Doubt he even gets in the game with Bess, Moore, and Wallace ahead of him but it doesn't hurt to sign him.

    He's currently our fastest WR. I hope he pans out (yes, I know it's a long shot).

    Hartline is hurt so everyone moves up.. They signed Carter because the defense needs to practice against somebody at WR.

    JD Folsom was signed last week for the same reason because Dansby and Crowder were hurt and didn't practice last week.. so everyone moves up a notch and they needed Folsom to be a dummy for the offense to practice against..

    Now that Crowder was practicing today and Dansby has felt better they released Folsom. I told you guys last week that he would get released as soon as they felt better despite some people saying that the team was giving him another shot.. lol

    you people look too deeply into these signings every week.. they are just dummies for the opposing unit to beat up against.

    The injury report is what you should look at when we bring these stiffs in. Carter will likely be released before the season is over.

    I know, I feel for the guy, lol.

    I remember his draft day press conference call a couple a years ago, he sounded geniunely surprised that he got drafted.

    In fact he'd been accepted to veterinary school and was set on going. You're only in your twenties once, might as well be a practice squad guy on an NFL team I guess.
