    Practice Squad Hunting and Waiver Wire claiming

    Are there any RBs of note that are on other teams Practice Squads or have been waived recently?

    If this is true this would be a good pick up. It was the strangest choice in the whole of Hard Knocks when they kept Joe McKnight over him.

    I can confirm it.

    Rams grab Chauncey Washington from Jets

    The Jets' selection of Joe McKnight continues to pay dividends.

    Two days after watching Leon Washington return two kicks for touchdowns, the Jets learned that running back Chauncey Washington was signed off their practice squad to St. Louis' active roster. Bernie Miklasz of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch has the news.

    Washington clearly outplayed McKnight in training camp and originally appeared to make the Jets roster. But the team later cut Washington and placed him on the team's practice squad.

    Perhaps Washington's Hard Knocks publicity helped get him a job.

    (Oh, and we can put the Larry Johnson-to-St. Louis rumors to rest now.)

    Interesting tidbits from discussion boards:

    I don't think its a stretch at all to say Washington is more valuable then Woody. I don't see any value for Woodhead long term out of the backfield, I just don't believe he has the size or durability to last if he needs to fill that role. He's got alot of value in the slot and some on special teams but I think Washington displayed more skills on the ST squad plus can deliver hits carrying the ball. He's a guy that will punish LB in the second half. To me that spells more value than Woodhead, but that's just my opinion. - MachinaVerde

    Seems BDev mined a backup RB and a special team player that can deliever a blow, or it seemed to be a realively common thread there. With Curry out, this is very nice.

    And to follow up on Woodhead... he just had a pretty good start with New England, 3 carries for 42 yards and a TD.

    Washington was the guy who they kept instead of Woodhead, and I guess should have been kept ahead of McKnight. Here's to hoping we get a gem!
    I believe!
