Sinorice Moss heads to Canada

Later this week there are going to be a lot of glowing things said about new members of the 32 NFL teams and we certainly wish all those drafted nothing but the best in their professional careers.

We know that things aren’t going to work out for everyone picked, however, and the latest reminder of that is the news that Sinorice Moss, the 44th pick of the 2006 NFL Draft, signed with the Saskatchewan Roughriders on Thursday. Moss did not play in the NFL last season after the Eagles cut him at the end of training camp.

He spent five disappointing years with the Giants before heading to his brief spell with the Eagles. Moss played in just 37 games, catching 37 passes and three touchdowns while steadily losing playing time to other members of the wide receiving corps. That’s clearly less than the Giants expected to get from a second-round pick, although the team’s two Super Bowl wins since making that selection are a sign that you can pick the occasional bust and survive.

Moss isn’t the only recognizable name on the Roughriders roster. Colt Brennan and J.T. O’Sullivan are both quarterbacks in Saskatchewan and former Colts receiver Taj Smith is also on the team.

  1. I met Sinorice in 2008 and actually still have his jersey. He was a really nice guy so it was a shame to never see him excel with the Giants, just to many unfortunate injuries it seemed. I hope he does well in the CFL.

  2. World-class person. Unfortunately, it seemed like he just couldn’t take a step without getting hurt.

  3. More rings than Dan Marino….just like Chuck Nevitt and Mark Madsen have more rings than Charles Barkley.

  4. Colt Brennan? From Sugar Bowl disaster, to NFL washout, to UFL flop, to CFL? Once he fails there, can he try out for the Lingerie Football League? How much lower can this dude go?

    But according the UH bandwagoners, he has the “it” factor! Too bad they forgot to put the “sh” in front of it. What an embarrassment.

    Oh well, karma for sexually assaulting that Colorado coed and for the mysterious crash that paralyzed Theresa Wang. Karma’s a B, huh Colt?

  5. You gotta work. I remember that Jerome Bettis/Peyton Manning commercial where Peyton was the referee. A man’s gotta work. As a football player there are more than just 32 options. Warren Moon was told he wasn’t good enough, then he went to Canada and came back with PROOF he was more than good enough. I don’t know how much money they make up there but it is better than making nothing down here begging one of 31 teams for a job (the Giants are out of the question for him).

    I wish him luck and success.

  6. I knew the guy would never catch on with the Philly. Both fan bases rip each other, but every Giants fan knew in their heart that Philly’s WRs were too deep and talented for this guy to make the roster. Sometimes drafting the younger brother of a real talented athlete pans out and sometimes it doesn’t. I still find it hard to believe that NY gave him five years. The writing was on the wall after year two, and year three just confirmed it. Years four and five were a wasted roster spot.

  7. I guess the RoughRiders want to pay him while he rehabs too. This guy may be a nice guy but a major bust he was. He was drafted for his speed and almost always pulled a hamstring every day.
    But work is work.

  8. some of you people are a little too harsh. Sure, he was a 2nd round bust, but in those 5 dissaponting seasons he spent with the Giants was he ever in the news crying about it, or making headlines acting like a fool off the field? He’s still getting paid to play a game he loves to play. More power to him.

    Go Blue

  9. I feel bad for Colt Brennan, he never got a chance in Washington and he was not driving that car, he was a passenger. Colt, you should get your self together and become a qb’s coach for UH. Good luck to you.
