WR Michael Campbell is Signed to Practice Squad

Our first news story of the day is that rookie WR Michael Campbell from Temple University has been signed to the practice squad. He is filling TE Josh Baker's spot, who as you all know, was elevated to the 53-man roster yesterday. Campbell is 6-1, 203 lbs. He runs a 4.5 40-yard dash. He was on the roster during training camp, only to be cut by the end.

Campbell has nearly 1200 receiving yards in college over the course of three years, with 73 receptions and 9 touchdowns. Bear in mind he played in a low-efficiency offense in college. He's obviously a low-risk signing but will need plenty of polishing before he can actively contribute.

I have no issues with this signing. Campbell has good agility, strength, and speed. He's very raw, and is going to need a lot of work with the coaches. Having said that, I would probably have preferred another offensive lineman, considering the news yesterday about C Robert Turner. If someone else goes down, I would like to have some more depth that has had time to work with offensive line coach Bill Callahan. In any case, let me know what you think of the signing in the comments below.
