Georgia Football: Dawgs in the NFL – Checking in on the Rookies


Training camp is underway, so here’s a quick look at a few former Bulldogs trying to make rosters.

Aaron Murray, Kansas City Chiefs

In college you “burn” a redshirt by playing.  In the NFL you become ineligible for the PUP (physically unable to perform) list.  Murray is ineligible – in a good way.

Murray is now in a three-way battle with Chase Daniel and Tyler Bray for two spots backing up Alex Smith on the final 53-man roster.  According to Terez A. Paylor of the Kansas City Star, it’s Bray and Daniel who could be on the chopping block:

…the Chiefs might be forced to make a decision between Bray and Daniel, because Smith and Murray are likely locks to make the roster.

Murray is healthy and fully recovered from ACL surgery that ended his college career two games early.

 

Arthur Lynch, Miami Dolphins

Artie is still working to bust into a rotation that features star tight end Charles Clay and a slew of reserves including Dion Sims, Michael Egnew and Kyle Miller.  Alain Poupart of Dolphins.com reported that Lynch put in extra work and was the last player to leave the field on Sunday.

 

Rantavious Wooten, Miami Dolphins

The receiver position is extremely crowded in Miami as pointed out here, but it sounds like Wooten is getting some looks as a punt returner too (per the Miami Herald).  According to sports-reference, Wooten never returned a kick at Georgia.  Though he did play in games in three or more games in five seasons, register multiple catches in five seasons and attempt a pass.

 

For what it’s worth, Isaiah Crowell is looking good at Browns training camp.

It’s A Hard Knock Life


So, the Atlanta Falcons have been named the team for this year’s HBO Hard Knocks season. Related: this season is over. Not because of Sean Weatherspoon’s torn Achilles in OTAs, but because no one has ever had a good season after appearing on the show. I was already disappointed when the Browns turned down HBO, because JohnnyFootball, but now that the cameras are going to be on my favorite team, I’m downright apoplectic.

There were only 8 teams thet the NFL could have made do Hard Knocks, but apparently, the Birds jumped at this chance. Either they know something I don’t, or management realizes there’s no point in competing while I live in the north. I appreciate the respect Falcons management, but damn. Internet, reaction gif me!
