From ESPN:
"Brad Smith is the leading candidate to be the Jets' No. 3 receiver while Santonio Holmes is suspended.
Smith will try to hold off David Clowney in camp, but neither provides much upside as a receiver. Once Holmes gets back in Week 5, Smith will return to concentrating on special teams. Clowney is strictly a situational deep threat."

From the National Football Post:
"Jets re-signed exclusive rights free agent WR David Clowney.
A burner with the potential to stretch the field, Clowney hasn't been able to translate his preseason success into a steady role with the Jets. He'll remain a situational deep threat behind Braylon Edwards and Jerricho Cotchery."

Isn't that what Chiefs fans and media are calling Horne without even playing a down?

Urban tore the flexor tendon in his ring finger.

That requires surgery, and there is a 10-12 week recovery time. So, IR makes sense to me...

He apparently did it run-blocking. Here is the Rotoworld blurb on it. I doubt they would go as far as to have a guy have surgery on a non-injured hand just to retain his rights.

Jerheme Urban-WR- Chiefs Sep. 7 - 11:02 pm et

The injury that landed Chiefs WR Jerheme Urban on injured reserve was a torn flexor tendon in the ring finger on his right hand.
Urban sustained the injury while run blocking in the preseason finale. He was scheduled to undergo surgery Tuesday, with a 10-12 week recovery timetable. Urban was being counted on as a special teamer and No. 4 receiver. He's under contract for $640,000 in 2011.

Clowney is a talented young player. He has more long term upside than Terrance Copper, whose ST ability, although good, is seriously overrated on here because it is the only thing he brings.

That said, Copper is a sacred cow, IMO, and if Clowney is signed, Horne will be cut and moved to the PS.

I agree completely.

Didn't mean to come across as Clowney having a lack of talent, I just don't see where he fits here, because I don't see the staff dumping Copper to make room.

Hell, the Jets had no room for him as a WR4 and they are missing Holmes for 4 games. I don't see us using him either. Not to mention, he doesn't seem like a Pioli-type player. Dude's been in NY for 3 years and really never reached his potential.

He's at best the 7th option to get the ball behind Charles, Bowe, Jones, Chambers, Moeaki and McCluster.

Buzzsaw

Clowney's one of the fastest guys in the league, excellent straight line speed. He's got a rep for dropping passes, which seems to happen a lot in practice, but to my knowledge he's never dropped anything in preseason games or in his limited regular season playing time. He had 2 pretty good games last year for the Jets (4 for 72 against Miami and 4 for 79 and a TD against Oakland).

His biggest negative is that he can't beat press coverage at the LOS. Corners can stifle him and throw him off his route pretty easily. We tried him at ST gunner this Summer and same deal, couldn't beat the press at the line.

Lots of talent, he just never developed for the Jets.

~ He's got a rep for dropping passes,

~ His biggest negative is that he can't beat press coverage at the LOS.
Corners can stifle him and throw him off his route pretty easily.

~ We tried him at ST gunner this Summer and same deal, couldn't beat the press at the line.

~ Lots of talent, he just never developed for the Jets.

A couple of weeks on the "port-a-potty" drill and he'll be a Pro Bowler! :thumb:

Yeah, but those drops are only because our QB throws a pass that makes receivers drop them.

In New York, with Sanchez throwing to him, he has no excuse for dropping passes.

Drops would be interesting if they weren't such a bullshit, subjective statistic. What we know for sure is that Cassel is a player that makes everyone around him worse (see: offensive line). To believe that this extends to skill position players isn't a stretch (see: Brokaki's notable "drop").

Former New York Jets WR David Clowney was released on Sept. 5 and said on his Twitter account on Wednesday night that he was making a trip to Kansas City.

We weren't sure whether Clowney meant to work out for the Chiefs or not but the Kansas City Star's Adam Teicher confirms that Clowney is coming in for workout.

Per Teicher, the private workout is scheduled for Friday.

It seems unlikely that the Chiefs would sign Clowney on a Friday and have him play on a Monday but I suppose it's possible.

The book on Clowney is that he excels in training camp and preseason type environments, which could mean he's going to look good in a private workout. From a physical standpoint, he's got the goods at 6'0" and 188 pounds along with speed in the range of 4.4 seconds on a forty yard dash.

We'll see if the Chiefs make a move after the workout. There could be one Chief on the roster right now who will be very disappointed on Friday.

He caught a TD against Tampa Bay's 1's in Week 2 of the pre-season.

Horne does have good speed and did get open a time or two, but Croyle couldn't hit him. He needs to make a couple of plays (and should have made more plays in the preseason IMO other than running 20 yards backwards on a reverse) to make me sad about the Chiefs cutting him.

Well yea.

Can't please CP'ers. Bitch when we don't sign people, bitch when we do.

Quentin Lawrence is a prime example of the wishy washyness of this place.

Last year it was "why isn't Lawrence getting a chance", this year it's "why did we cut what's his name nobody from the practice squad for Lawrence's worthless ass."

I know you're speaking in generalities, but personally, I'm still pisssed that they cut Lawrence in favor of Copper.

After 7 years, Copper is what he is, a useless WR and overrated special teams player.

Lawrence still has a chance to develop into something, albeit slight, and he did show up on special teams this preseason.

The organization is the one who drafted a nickelback in the 2nd, overlooks Cassel's incapabilities, and for two offseasons has refused to look for a solution to the NT position. They drafted Tyson Jackson, pissed off a couple of young aspiring players, and gone with experience over youth way more often than they should.

That same organization held onto Terrance Copper. Now you're holding them up as the people who can accurately tell us whether Jeremy Horne has talent or not?

ONE Play. And on that Palko overthrow, he could've at least attempted to lay out for the ball like we've already seen McCluster do.

The reverse had nothing to do with being a rookie. Horne has been playing football for how long? He has to know that running 20 yards back is not acceptable.

Take RustShack's football knowledge with a grain of salt.

This same man who believes Horne to be a reincarnation of Joe Horn also believes with all his heart (and casino cash) that Iowa State, a team that hasn't scored a TD against Iowa since 2006, is going to march into Iowa City tomorrow and beat the 9th ranked Hawkeyes, a team that returns 16 starters from a team that went 11-2 and won a BCS game.

I've never said anything about Horne being good. But he showed some ability in limited action.

Because getting in position to make that catch is insignificant.
And making the catch on a team that was plagued with drops just last year...also insignificant.
As is consistently getting open downfield.

Rookie to the NFL genius. Not to playing football.
How many times have you heard color commentators say rookies need to get adjusted to the speed of the NFL? My goodness. Do you watch much of the game? He was relying far too much on his wheels and simply thought he could outrun the defenders. He's learned now that such isn't the case. Learning to play in the NFL requires respect of the fact that you won't blow by everybody and that you need to get north on a play. Again...rookie mistake.

I would LOVE it if Clowney or Horne had Copper's ST ability. Younger is always better, especially if their role with the team has the sliver of possibilty that they might be better than what we think they are now. But that's all it is. A sliver of hope. Whoever takes that spot is NOT going to produce on offense.

A sliver is not > no hope if the no hope hack actually does a good job at doing SOMETHING on game day. Otherwise all you have is an occupied roster spot with no production. And the Chiefs already have a bunch of those. It's called the practice squad.
