    NFL | Calmus out to prove he can still play
    Sat, 15 Apr 2006 06:30:14 -0700

    Jim Wyatt, of the Tennessean, reports free agent LB Rocky Calmus (Colts) is out to prove he can still play in the NFL. The Indianapolis Colts have indicated they don't plan to re-sign Calmus for 2006 and his former team the Tennessee Titans are not interested at this time even though they don't have a proven middle linebacker on the roster. Calmus said "three or four teams" are keeping an eye on him, however, and he hopes to get a workout. "I can still play," he said. "I just need to prove it.'' Calmus has been plagued by injuries throughout his NFL career.

    Marcus was signed from the practice to active squad. Coaches speak highly of his intelligence and athletic ability. They see a project in him and think that he will become an effective defensive player. The NFL isn't a benevolent business and wouldn't waste time re-signing a player to a contract that they knew in advance wouldn't make the team anyway. They save those spots for camp meat.

    Wasn't Deangelo Hall an offensive player who was sent to NFL Europe and became a Pro Bowl cornerback? Apparently there is high confidence in Marcus' ability because he wasn't allocated to NFL Europe.

    No, DeAngelo Hall was a first round pick by the Atlanta Falcons out of Virginia Tech. He was drafted as a CB

    You must be thinking of someone else.... Hall was a top 10 pick out of Va Tech, and became an immediate starter for the Falcons.

    Yeah, I had just read that earlier in the day and it got me to thinking...

    Was the ,"No" about giving Calmus a shot, or Randall backing up Mauck? :)

    How about this...

    Randall at QB and mauck at safety? What would be the difference? Either they can play or they can't.
