Tryout Tuesday gets 67 guys a look-see, but not Chad or T.O. or Plaxico

Jacksonville Jaguars wide receiver Brian Robiskie questions an official after being ruled out of bounds in the end zone during the second half of their pre-season NFL football game against the New York Giants in Jacksonville, Florida Reuters

As it turns out, the Eagles were taking a look at a couple of receivers on Tuesday.  Chad Johnson, however, wasn’t one of them.

Neither were Terrell Owens or Plaxico Burress.

The Eagles brought in receivers Brian Robiskie (pictured) and DeMarco Sampson for the Week Two “Tryout Tuesday,” the day when the players are off and guys who may be taking a job or two come in for a workout.

Robiskie also had a tryout with the Patriots, who likewise looked at receiver Kashif Moore, defensive tackle Antonio Dixon, center Tommie Draheim, defensive tackle Terrell McClain, tackle Nick Mondek, and linebacker Nathan Stupar.

Elsewhere, the Bears looked at linebackers Spencer Adkins, Rennie Curran, Jerry Franklin, Omar Gaither, and Lawrence Wilson, along with defensive backs Bryan McCann and Dante Hughes.

The Bengals eyeballed defensive end Wallace Gilberry, Ronald Talley, Jay Richardson, and Jarius Wynn, and linebackers Xavier Adibi, Bryan Kehl, and Jabara Williams.

The Lions looked at running backs Ryan Grant, Steve Slaton, and Alfonso Smith, and defensive backs Tyrone Culver, Jaiquawn Jarrett, and Brandyn Thompson.

The Texans went all O-line, with centers Bryan Mattison and Cecil Newton, guards Mike Gibson and Kevin Hughes, and tackles James Lee, William Robinson, and Stephen Schilling.

The Colts checked out guard Paul Fanaika, tackle Tony Hills, nose tackle Nicolas Jean-Baptiste, and linebacker Shawn Loiseau.

The Dolphins looked at defensive tackles Remi Ayodele, Andre Fluellen, and Daniel Muir.  (Fluellen was signed.)

The Saints tried out defensive ends Tim Crowder and James Hall.

The Raiders worked out defensive backs Darius Butler, Cletis Gordon, Antwaun Molden, and Kevin Thomas, along with defensive end Andre Carter and tackle Patrick Brown.

The Chargers kicked tires on cornerback Chris Carr, and the Bucs brought in running backs DuJuan Harris, Jacob Hester, Adonis Thomas, and Keith Toston, guards Roger Allen and Montrae Holland, center Matt Tennant, and tackles Jake Anderson, Brandon Keith, and J.B. Shugarts.

Finally, the Titans tried out tight ends DeMarco Cosby, Alex Silvestro, and Brandon Venson, linebackers Joe Holland and Tyler Nielsen, and defensive end Aaron Lavarias.

    Still don’t get why Plaxico’s unsigned, he’s still a capable player and several teams are short at WR.

    The redskins should sign all three T.O, Chad and Plax. We would be unstoppable Brother!!!!

    Plax, vet minimum, 4th wr and red zone threat. Seems like a no lose situation.

    You already have a WR that shot his team in the foot…it only makes sense to sign one that shot himself in the leg.

    Plax the only one that can still play

    Somethin wrong with NFL coaches when Robiski can get multiple tryouts and Plaxico is still on the unemployment list when he had a decent season after being in jail for 2years

    Bengals signed DE Wallace Gilberry after putting DE Jamaal Anderson on IR.

  17. phillyphannn83 says: Sep 19, 2012 6:08 PM

    I agree, why the Plax ban?? There is no doubt he could help someone and I would love the birds to sign him to the vet minimum.

  18. dougydougdoug says: Sep 19, 2012 6:09 PM

    If Too, Wife Beater, and Calixico weren’t looked at, then the Raiders must not have had any tryouts.

  19. phillyphannn83 says: Sep 19, 2012 6:09 PM

    bobonmycob, the one with the zero in the name is someone impersonating him. He might just be my hero, haha.
