I'm surprised there wasn't more talk about this guy. He was considered a really good Wes Welker type of prospect for the Cardinals. I was reading some other teams forums and a lot of fans were hoping their teams would go after this guy. Could be a nice player for us down the road.
Long ran a 4.38 in the 40 yard dash at his pro day, and had the fastest shuttle time in the country.
And this is from the Cardinals site:A nice pickup for Todd Haley. Long was good enough to make Arizona's Week 1 roster, but got "punished" for a rough Week 1 game during which Kurt Warner looked more like a late-40s quarterback than a Super Bowl runner-up. K.C. is starving for talent at all positions, so Long may be activated later this year.
There’s [Lance] Long, the second-year man who is practice squad-eligible but who will likely have a tough time passing through waivers if released. There’s Early Doucet, who has struggled with injuries his first two training camps but was the team’s third-round draft pick in 2007. And there is veteran Sean Morey, who has less upside as a receiver but is the NFC’s reigning Pro Bowl special teamer and a key member of the Cards’ special teams units.
