So by my count we still have two open roster spots......camp starts tomorrow.....who we signing?


Would we have 3 left? We cut 2, traded 1 and Legrand retired. I only saw where we signed the Thomas guy.

I was thinking 3 as well.

Happy and Peppy and Bursting with love.

It's not surprising there was a group of Bucs....or any NFL team....which had a fair number of guys not complete that drill.



Ya, but pro athletes?

Think about it though the higher you go in football the worse conditioning test will be. It's not like these pros will do some high school test.






They knew exactly what was coming, and had what, 2 months to prepare?   Every town in the USA has a football field or running track.

It can get you in shape, but not prepared for that type of heat and running while being timed. People train for months to leave for basic training but fail to complete it.

The thought of running 110 yards right now in the cool upstate NY air (thank GOD for that...been hot and dry all summer...lawn is BROWN) makes me cringe.

But of course, I am not being paid to represent.  No excuse to fail that.  NONE.  Zilch.

IDK man, if I was making the kind of scratch these dudes are making.  I would be running a practice mile every day in my hometown for the last couple months.

Nice post Ryan - I was going to make the same point but figured it would be lost on many in this thread.  Glad you did.  Running for runnings sake is track...

I would offer its a barometer of your overall physical condition.

...and you might still fail the test. With that rate of failure, the test is bad not the players.

Makes sense on the face of the comment.  I would respond it is asking for type of physical condition which is not consistent with the position's requirements.

They all run to a differing degrees.   And from what I understand, its a different test for the linemen as opposed to the DB's or Wr's.

Same here, but this world is not full of hard workers. A lot of guys do what they can to get by.

I believe it is described as different time requirements.  And it is the repetitive running 110 yards in such a hot environment that is at issue.

So a guy making 5mil a year for example, can't jog 110 yards and take a 45 second break and rinse and repeat?

16 100yd sprints with different time goals for the 3 groups and different recoveries for the 3 groups.

Who said anything about "jog"?

I am relatively certain a jog isn't what is required for passing the time - if that is all that is required you could well be right.  If you know the time requirements feel free to enlighten me.  I am familiar with fitness tests - and I don't know of one that uses jogging.  But perhaps you are right about that, and therefore right with your expectation.  As for the money, I don't that is material, dramatic perhaps, but not pertinent.
