Yes, but Byrd said (between the lines) that recovery didn't go perfect (rushed into action) and he won't make same mistake again.

Potential is there for Hill. I say give him a chance.
This is exactly what I don't get. He had five touchdowns, but ONLY 14 catches. Nobody is worried about Josh Hill when you have as many weapons as we had. I don't consider the 5 TD's to be evidence of potential, when he isn't doing much otherwise.

I'm not saying there is absolutely no potential there (though I am saying that I don't see it right now) but the TD's don't mean a lot to me. I don't have much interest in Gresham, but it's hard to compare him to Josh Hill when you consider the offenses and the QB's, especially. Gresham seems to get hurt a lot as well.

If I had a nickel for every time I heard that, the NFL would fine and suspend me.

Each surgery is different and recovery depends on the individual's body

Re: Jermaine Gresham

When healthy, Gresham is a monster. Wouldn't surprise me that once he is cleared by doctors/medical officials, he will be signed in N O. This has Sean Payton written all over it.

Agreed. Plus, we don't have to take him out on rushing downs.

Re: Jermaine Gresham

First off I'm concerned about his coaches comments. Very worried. We don't need a head case, distraction or diva in the locker room. Especially this offseason. However, the talent is there and he looks to be a good fit in a Sean Payton offense. Especially as a blocker. So, I have mixed emotions about Signing Gresham to a contract.
Danno and jeanpierre like this.

Fumbles, dropped passes and injuries marred what could have been a stellar first five years of his career.

Sure, Gresham has been to the Pro Bowl, but that's not what Bengals fans immediately associate with him.

Before anything else they highlight the two cut off routes he had last season that cost the Bengals at least one touchdown. They also bring up his 11 total fumbles, and untimely drops like the two that came in the wild-card round playoff loss at Houston after the 2012 season.

"He's had inconsistent play, but he's played at a high level," Lewis said. "He's a Pro Bowl player."


And you're balsting Josh Hill?????

Think Rugs and '76 are right to be concerned with PUBLISHED comments regarding said player...

Marvin is usually a very positive person and feels that supporting former players, teammates, coworkers yields positive return karma...

I would definitely give pause after reading those things about Gresham...

We always want to improve the team, but ask yourselves - Is his skill set so unique and elevated that it's worth tacking on any baggage, drama that we just shipped out of here in the offseason?!?
