Saints claim Ross

Discussion in 'Professional Football' started by jimotis4heisman, Aug 18, 2004.


    "The young cornerback is generally considered mechanically solid and athletically gifted but with too many mental lapses, attitude problems and injury issues. He fits the Jim Haslett prototype cornerback: small, aggressive, good tackler. At the very least, he should provide the Saints an inside peek at the Falcons' coverage schemes. The former Ohio State product was a collegiate teammate of current Saints LeCharles Bentley, Cie Grant and Will Smith. Ross shocked his teammates and scouts by declaring early for the NFL Draft in 2002. He has had numerous injuries and surgeries that have so far stunted his career. The Saints inherit Ross' original rookie contract which has one year remaining and carries a base salary of only $380,000 this season."

    There are very, very few Buckeyes I don't care about once they leave the school, but Derek Ross is one of them

    No offense intended towards you Jim

    I met him at tOSU when we were at a few mutual parties...he seemed like a straight up thug.

    Then he pulled the BS before the Outhouse bowl...

    His rep in SC is not very good either...Ive heard a number of stories from coaches when they realize I'm a Buckeye fan
  5. Yeah hes a thug I hear too, I know he has a nice little rap sheet with drunk driving marijuana charge and driving under a suspended license and then fleeing

    This guys sure has fallen. Being a cowboys fan, I remember when he was supposed to be the answer at one corner spot. They loved his potential and he showed flashes of great potential. What a shame.

    The University reputation as "DB U" really got him drafted so high in the first place. He was probably the most overrated DB to come out of OSU in the last 10 years at least.

    How hard can it be to get to the airport on time? If I had the chance to be making six figures annually, you can bet my ass would be at the terminal early.
