  1. This will be his 7th team since 2010. He must be one of those do good at practice and tryouts but suck in games type of player.

  2. A lot of journeymen out there have come through Dallas and then they hit Stardom, then overvalue themselves and wants Jerry to pay up big, then when Jerry refuses, they go somewhere else and SUCK! I hope that Mr.Gibson realizes that if his production becomes great, its because of the attention the other players are getting. Look what happened to Laurant Robinson.
