I apologize in advance if this was covered before.

Where is this guy? I know he was released, but I thought he was one of the bright spots in our defense. I don't disagree with the decision, because of the injury bug, but no one picked him up?

Noone signed him. His injuries must of been worse then expected.

Very curious question indeed. I haven't even heard of teams calling him in on a workout just to see what he's got. Maybe it's just that nobody even knows he's not retired or something...

Seattle did during the offseason.

He also tried out with the Texans and got passed over. Unless someone like Buffalo has more injuries at corner soon, I'd pretty much say that, like Deuce it's retirement now.

Miami took a look at him as well.

At this point MM just seems like a good pickup for a team that's in a bind, not someone that would be your first or second option.

If anyone is looking to FA for a starting corner, they're in bad shape at that position.


That said, I don't believe that MM is remotely 'done' and am also curious to know specifically why teams passed on him. Last time he played for us, he was still a strong, starting-caliber corner.

Perhaps MM wasn't willing to accept a backup role?

Where is this guy?

Today he was in the Dome. Saw him in the club endzone. He stopped by the tunnel before going into the concourse and the corner club endzone gave him a standing ovation.

As much as fans second-guessed our releasing him and Deuce, the fact that they got so little attention and ultimately didn't make a team should tell us everything we need to know.

Always love the Predator . I'd love to have him in this Defense before he hurt his Knees.

......though I know others don't agree, I'd like it if he were still here. Even if just to impart some of his knowledge to the younger corners....

Gotta say though, Greer was a HUGE pickup for us. Him and Porter have completely made me forget about the days of Freddie Thomas, or (gulp!) Jason David...

no one wants to sign a injury prone cb over 30 whether he can still play or not.
