Does YOYO go back to the PS or will he be gone for good? Hoping it's the PS. I feel kinda bad for the guy.

Anyone know anything about Johnson?

Oh boy. That "YoYo" nickname I gave to Thompson is going to stick.

Scott barely got on the field for the Redskins. Nothing lost here in auditioning some other players for depth.

This team could certainly use some vets on the bench who can contribute something.

TE Fendi Onobun to the practice squad, and to the top of the "best name" list.

Brandyn Thompson also re-signed to the practice squad.

Balmer, who indeed is 25 and 6'-5" 315 lbs, was drafted by the 49ers in 2008 and played in a total of 27 games in 2008 and 2009 and didn't do much-19 tackles and one pass defended in both seasons combined. Last season with Seattle he recorded 43 tackles and 7 stuffs with one pass defended.

Tyler Polombus-6'-8" 300lbs was RT for the Broncos. He was picked up by Shanahan as a UDFA in 2008 and waived and picked up by the Lions in 2010 and traded to the Seahawks within a week in roster cutdowns. Polumbus started a couple games at LT when Russel Oking was hurt. He was waived by Seattle on October 25th.

Polombus already knows the ZBS somewhat so his learning curve should be minimal. I'm sure his ability to play multiple positions is another reason why he was brought in. Kind of a no-brainer at this point in the season. Great? No.....but serviceable. That's about all we're gonna get after eight games.
