Tennis is gay, and any player on the ATP tour would die if they tried playing a game of football.

Bengals | Rideaux waived
Mon, 17 Jul 2006 13:05:47 -0700

The Cincinnati Bengals have announced the team has waived rookie CB DeMarcus Rideaux.

DeMarcus Rideaux 6-0 198, Maryville State (NAIA)

A two-time All DAC-10 selection at defensive back, Rideaux made the switch from cornerback to free safety midway through the 2004 season. Rideaux made 42 solo tackles, including three for losses, added 16 assisted tackles, and blocked a kick. He also deflected five passes. His play on the field and physical ability has brought numerous National Football League scouts to the Mayville State campus. At least 14 NFL teams have now visited campus to look at film and visit Rideaux.

Raiders | Cooper waived
Tue, 18 Jul 2006 19:14:53 -0700

Raiders.com reports the Oakland Raiders have waived LB Roger Cooper.

http://www.nfl.com/draft/profiles/2005/cooper_roger
Position: Outside Linebacker
College: Montana State
Height: 6-2
Weight: 243

ANALYSIS
Cooper is a natural team leader who plays his heart out on the field. He is an instinctive, hard-hitting tackler, but does play under control. He has a good feel for blocking schemes, but needs to be more active with his hands when trying to disengage. He has a strong body that he hurls around to make the play and the lateral agility to string out the sweep and squeeze down. He is not a quick shedder though, as he tends to stack at a high stance and needs to play lower in his pads.

When he gets proper hand extension, Cooper is effective at warding off blocks. He drops back in pass coverage quickly in the short area, as he will use his power to re-route the running backs and tight ends. He runs well and shows a good burst to close down the line and his hip flexibility lets him shadow a short receiver. Cooper's agility is evident with his ability to change directions in a chase.

Cooper makes plays on the ball from all over the field and can generate good pass rush heat coming off the edge. When he takes on the lead block, he can push the fullback back through the rush lane, but needs to stay lower in his pads doing this or he will get stonewalled. He hunts down the ball from across the field and stays at a good pad level to wrap and secure as a tackler. He is sometimes slow to sniff out the ball at the point of attack, but he has the recovery speed to close quickly.

Cooper lacks natural hands to make the interception. He does use his long arms effectively to gain separation and is best when coming off the edge, as he can generate a good upfield burst. He is a strong wrap-up tackler, especially in the open field. While he has good recovery speed, he appears better suited to work along the line of scrimmage. Cooper is a decent blitzer, but just seems to lack the fluid hip snap needed to operate in space or trail the receivers in man coverage.

Cooper plays with a high motor and is known for his explosive hits, but you would have hoped he could have dominated better considering the level of competition he faced. This is a player on the cusp of putting it all together. Some linebackers might go ahead of him in the draft, but he proved that he can play with the big boys in the college all-star game circuit. This could be that sleeper who sneaks into the early part of the second day of the draft.
AGILITY
4.68 in the 40-yard dash … 370-pound bench press … 500-pound squat … 327-pound power clean … 31-inch vertical jump … 33-inch arm length … 9 1/8-inch hands … Right-handed


hmmm

Watched this kid play up here in boston. he can play alot of postion very well. this is a player we should look at. I would love to see use call him in for a workout. this is the best of the UFA yet. Another Freddy Mac. I do not give out a "Freddy" often. Practice squad or special team gunner. he has the "P" word and can live up to it IMO
