Does this give Marcus Mason a chance to make the 53-man team? I know you MM fanboys are going to go crazy with this :laugh:

Damn right, GO MARCUS!!!!!!!

Again, it seems to me the fact they re-signed Brown is a bad sign for Mason, right? The assumption was that Mason was battling Blaylock for a roster spot. If that was the case, and Blaylock's on IR, then why bring back Brown?

For Mason, I see practice squad at best now.

Maybe it's for preseason purposes?

Hmmm, very interesting. What's wrong with Blaylock? And I fear that re-signing the previously cut Brown doesn't bode well for Marcus Mason.

Seems that way, but you know this coaching staff seems to favor age over talent/potential/ability.

brown has received a ton of carries while mason hasn't been getting any looks. perhaps they want to PS him and don't want anyone to get any film? :whoknows:

Did I miss something? I haven't seen Brown do anything but special teams this preseason while Mason is 3rd on the team in carries.

I also don't think the signing of Brown has any effect on Mason. He's just there in case we need him tonight and probably for a practice body until the next round of cuts.
