Sucks for him. How often does someone actually turn their life around? Is it because no one actually makes a point to highlight the fact that someone actualyl turned it around. Or media just pin pointing the negative actions of pro athletes.

Damn he's still only 23? He looked good measurables wise but never quite panned out in the NFL (yet).

The media talks about feel good stories all the time, remember Samkon Gado? It seems like half of the Packers draft this year is feel good stories of people who triumphed over adversity (which I'm slightly bitter that TT keeps drafting people on this quality, but that's another topic for another thread).

But most stories like this are pro athletes that had talent and were given every chance to succeed and they blew it. Now it might be too late to get another chance with another team, or to learn and go about the natural progression of a successful NFL player. Even if a player has the motivation, it takes time which adds age in a job where you have a very short life span, and he was used to having a lot of people (coaches, etc.) there to help him out and he still didn't give the bit of effort, now he has to give that plus a lot of extra to work towards another chance. He's not used to doing that, thus it is very difficult.

Lot longer and more insightful post than I expected, I'm really philosophical today for some reason.

This guy can't be a player in the NFL unless it comes on special tams. He can't cover worth crap and he loves to hold receivers. A great selection by Mike Sherman.

mike rumph wasnt a speedy guy... he was more of a physical corner...
4.5 40 for rumph

He was not in the teams plans as a future contributer; he was a scrub (unless you listen to TheGunShow). His release this morning was obvious and needed.

Washington was a good corner in college. He wasn't a workout warrior like Henry was.

Right, you should always go with slow corners. ;)

yea but game speed is different than foot speed. Vasher plays fast. And you can say Vasher was like the exception.

I look forward to seeing him on future top ten lists of NFL busts.

I don't think he ran at the combine. I remember his times were a lot slower than expected at his pro day though and he ended up running better times later at private workouts. Vasher has good speed, I just think he had some problems running his 40s.

umm...Rumph was not speedy at all, he was known for his hard hitting and lacked speed which is why he got moved to safety for a period in his career. But yea, he was a bust...Is he still in the league? And Fabian Washington isnt anything close to being a bust, he has had an excellent 2 years and is already a very solid starting corner who has cover skills, ball skills in addition to speed and is also a good hitter for his size. He could be a pro bowler within the next few years if he continues his progression.

I think Vasher is quicker than fast...Hes not a guy you would be comfortable turning and running with a speedy wideout in single coverage.
