I don't know about breakout, but I think he's a better fit for Spags scheme than he was in Greggs scheme.

He's now playing the strong side which may be a better fit for him as well.

Doh! So if a player is picked up by another team, even if they're cut, they can't go on ANY other team's practice squad or just the team that initially cut them?

Not doubting, just ignorant

Two seasons in the NFL is all you get. There are some exceptions and qualifiers but Tennant doesn't meet them.

I know it used to be only 2 seasons of PS eligibility and/or X number of games on the active roster, with exceptions being related to injury.

Tennant was in the active roster for 12 games last season, so he isn't eligible based on that alone - a player can't be in the active roster for 6 or more games in the previous season (with the current team) in order to be eligible for the team's practice squad.

At least that is how I remember it...

OK, you're crazy. I hope you're right, but more likely crazy.

Thanks for the clarification gents

Really too bad about Tennant, hopefully the guy we've got now proves to be teachable. Can't get much better of an O-line coach than Kromer. Dude has absolutely nothing to prove anymore about how to make a great unit, so if he says Tennant had to go I definitely respect his opinion

I think it had a lot to do with Olsen impressing than Tennant being a bust.

Kromer had nice things to say about his assistant O-line coach - Frank Smith - in the recent press conference, so hopefully Smith will be able to carry on Kromer's great work if/when Kromer gets a shot at being a HC with some team.
