Post Demps wants to play Football
Quote:
Former University of Florida football and track star Jeff Demps will pursue a career in the NFL.


Quote:
The Olympic silver medalist has signed a standard representation agreement for football, a souce close to Demps said Tuesday, with the goal of playing in the 2012 season. Demps recently returned from London, where he took part in Team USA's 4x100-meter relay heat and earned his hardware.


NFL.com Article

Change of pace back on 3rd down and Harvin wouldn't have to do kickoff duty. I'd take him over Todman/Felton or any of the other RB/FB fodder behind AD and Gerhart. I'm not really sure what his stock looks like right now, maybe he doesn't want to be buried that far down the depth chart but hopefully the Vikes are kicking the tires.

I hope so. He's certainly worth a look.

Interesting nugget that just came up on the show -- word is Jeff Demps' agent is asking NFL teams to guarantee the first year of his deal.

If so, Demps has found a unique glitch in the matrix. Tell teams you're done, then pick your home and get equivalent of a 3rd-round bonus.

of course had we ACTUALLY signed him....we'd hear about how it was a stupid move, about how he's a midget-idiot, not even drafted so there is no chance, and our front office is a bunch of ####. :D

i like the signing. could be a good return guy.

Our coaches would have penciled him in as a quarterback. :twisted:

Good news for him he'll be in a top rate organization that knows how to coach up talent and get the most out of players. not the opposite.

I'm fine we didn't though. Everything I've read has projected him as really just a return guy. With Harvin already when we need him and the other guys on our team, I don't know if we need a return only guy.

I'm surprised nobody took a late 7th round flier on him.

Patriots placed KR/RB Jeff Demps (leg) on injured reserve, ending his season.

Demps reportedly felt a "tweak" in his leg late in the preseason finale versus the Giants. Given limited prep time after signing in mid-August, the Olympic silver medalist will be afforded a redshirt year. The move takes an explosive return candidate away from the Patriots D/ST.

I was just looking at New England's roster. They have eight players on IR and another two on the PUP list.
