I loved this guy and I completely forgot he signed with the Raiders. I forgot to watch for him in the game against the Cowboys. How has he been doing at camp?

Joseph was waived a couple weeks before the start of camp. I was pissed! The thought was that he showed he was too slow and inexperienced to challenge Morrison and Brown in offseason workouts and he obviously didn't warrant a roster spot at a time when the team was trimming down to the 80-player roster limit.

That sucks. Frantz is a stud. I thought wherever he landed he'd rip it up. My BC Lions better try to sign him.

Hopefully the Pats pick him up. They're slim at ILBs

I'm not sure Joseph's game translates well to the larger playing surface. He's a stud in the right system, which I believe is the 'thumper' in a 3-4. He does a decent job of shedding blocks.

I agree with that. Though the guy can just flat out play and I love his attitude. Really surprised he didn't stick anywhere. I guess he's too small and too slow.
