"There was also news at the fullback position Monday as second-year pro J.D. Runnels was waived/injured and Obafemi Ayanbadejo, the brother of Bears special teams standout Brendon Ayanbadejo, participated in practice on a tryout basis.

Runnels injured his knee last week during an OTA workout. The 2006 sixth-round draft pick from Oklahoma appeared in two games last season on special teams."

Runnels didn't last very long.. 2 FBs in a 3 day span? lol.. Wasn't Johnson finally released the other day?

A lot of people were high on Runnels I never really bought into the hype.. I wonder how serious the injury was.

Another interesting note is that Obafemi Ayanbadejo is trying out for the team.. He was a pretty good special teamer for ARZ I believe.

Well that was a complete waste of a pick. Then again it was a 6th rounder, which are always crapshoots anyway. I need to update the depth chart, lots of small moves going on.

Atleast the ugliest player in the league is no longer on our team.

Ian Scott was way uglier than Runnels.

I'm going to have to respectfully disagree with you on this one.

I really like this move, as I have always been a fan of Oba. He is a good solid veteran FB who is a good blocker, and very good special teamer. And he has won a Super Bowl with the Ravens.

What? I would have been able to make fun of that ugly POS for the entire NFL season? Oh well, I suppose I'll stick to Sexy Rexy comments.

i was always thinking, y'know what'd be funny.
if both ayenbadejo's would play on the same team.
two years later.
here we are.

i like it. depth, teamwork. good special teams.
