    Darnell Bing

    Was just skimming through our roster on NYJ.com when I ran across Darnell Bing. I didn't even know he was on the team.

    I remember he was a badass saftey with the Trojans and I never heard anything from him after he left USC.

    Could be a nice sleeper and possibly give Elam/Smith a run for their money.

    Thoughts?

    !?!

    He did very well at USC. What's going on here?

    Didn't he slip substantially in the draft? I know we drafted Eric Smith over him.

    Raiders drafted him in the 4th a few picks after we took E Smith. I was pissed because I much preferred the USC star to the unknown Smith. The Raiders tried to convert Bing to LB and put him on IR for the year with some phantom injury. They gave up on that experiment for 2007, tried Bing at S and then cut him after training camp. Bing was picked up by SF who had him on the practice squad for S all year. Jets signed him in early January.

    Bing has the athletic ability and college pedigree. I think he'll be in a fight for the #4 Safety position for 2008.

    Just ask Derrick Strait. This guy won the Thorpe award as the #1 DB in the country on a Major program and he is out of the league.

    Raiders tried him at linebacker and safety and he wasn't any good so he was cut.

    Niners tried him at safety and special teams during the preseason and he was downright pathetic so he was cut after 2 weeks but Nolan liked him in college so he was on the PS before getting cut again.

    Yes, he is training camp fodder and that is all.

    No he will not. A 225 pound 3-4 OLB is unheard of.

    There was a thread a few months back when we picked him up....

    ...apparently he's total garbage now. I was so pissed when we took E. Smith over him too, ya never know.

    Actually the Ravens have one at those dimensions and he's been an excellent NT over the years.

    Too small for LB, Too slow for S is essentially the jist of his NFL Career to date.

    But man he can hit.

    I'd like to see him bulk up and maybe give him a Shot at Linebacker again....if he came in at 240 I wonder if he could play ILB, granted he might lose even more speed that way so who knows.
