Keary Colbert completes improbable comeback


USC wide receivers have a knack for improbable comebacks.

One year after Mike Williams returned from a few years out of the league to star in Seattle, Keary Colbert has made the Chiefs 53-man roster.

Colbert hasn’t played in the NFL since 2008.  He was in the UFL in 2009 and was a coaching assistant under Lane Kiffin at USC in 2010.  That will make anyone want to return to the field.

When Colbert announced his decision to return, we noted that he had an uphill battle to make a roster.  He picked the right team in Kansas City and apparently had an impressive camp.

A former second round pick of the Panthers, Colbert’s best season came as a rookie in 2004 with 754 yards.  If Colbert follows Williams’ path, we’ll be hearing from him again.

  1. The light goes on for people at different speeds. Todd Haley (for all his faults) is a pretty good evaluator of receivers. I’d rather have someone who had to work through adversity and appreciates the NFL do well then some of the other knuckleheads with their diva mentality

  2. Take it from a Panthers PSL holder, Colbert can’t ball. He can’t create separation from defenders on game day. Secondaries eat this guy’s lunch for him. The fact he’s being picked up gives you an idea of the dire shortage of decent wideouts in this league nowadays

  3. I guess it is true, mostly insecure people with anger issues because daddy did not give them enough hugs, really do like to root against happy endings.

    Tikis flabbergasted by this news.
    LMFAO I love that. We hate him in New York and couldn’t happen to a “BETTER” guy.
