Jerheme Urban
(Trinity [TX] '03) is still on the Seahawks roster.

Only took three years, but they finally have something listed under "college career" [not much] and "personal" [less].

Not having a great preseason so far, unfortunately.  This is his third season in the league, so going onto the practice squad is not an option.   Lots of competition for the WR slots this year.

Ryan Hoag (Gustavus '03) is trying out with the Vikings right now.  He was practice squad last year.  This is his last shot because he can't be on the PS this year.  He is right on the bubble.  He's having an awesome camp (led the Vikings in receptions against KC on Friday), so it will be tough for Tice to cut him.

Jamal Robertson is still with the Panthers but this year the camp is loaded with RB's.  In the first game he had two carries for 17 yards and a kick return for 23.  Keeping my fingers crossed for him.

Ryan Hoag had a few shots tonight against the Jets, but backup QB Brad Johnson couldn't hit him with catchable balls.

You can only be on one for two years.  Not sure if it is only the first two years you are in the league or not.

Robertson had 5 carries for 37 yards (7.4 yards per carry) against the Giants.  He also had a catch for 2 yards.  No KO returns though.

Tom Arth saw some garbage time for the Colts on Saturday.

Prognosis isn't good for him, though. The Colts may keep just two QBs.

R-Kal Truluck, Cortland State.  A veteran with the KC Chiefs, Truluck is now on the Green Bay Packers roster.  Truluck was a terror as a defensive lineman at Cortland, particularly in Cortaca Jug games.

Urban saw significant playing time last night for the Seahawks and appeared to be Seneca Wallace's favorite target from what I saw.  He made some tough catches over the middle in traffic and had a great catch to keep the drive going.  However, he did drop a ball  that could have been a TD between the safeties, it would have been a tough catch.  The all-informative John Madden said he didn't think he had much of a chance to make the roster with six WR's fighting for one spot.  I hope he continues to play hard and gets his chance.

The dropped TD catch might have been tipped by the DB, but you gotta make the catch in that situation.   Urban's also not getting time with the first string so far this preseason.

I didn't notice him on any special teams either which may hurt his chances of making the team.
