I feel it was a poor move for the Skins. Now many will argue this, citing his youth, size and red zone presence, but I'm looking further into his profile, and I see many things I do not like abot this signing.
Also, he had some off-field drama this summer:
Internet rumor sites are having a field day with what can best be described as a Twitter war between Briscoe’s current girlfriend, reality TV star Royce Reed, and Briscoe’s ex-girlfriend, Christina Nero, the mother of his son. Nero and Reed earlier this week engaged numerous back-and-forth posts, with Nero saying she and Briscoe have been involved in a relationship, unbeknownst to Reed. That began a series of colorful insults and accusations between the two. Reed and Briscoe have been dating since 2011. She is one of the stars of the Vh-1 hit show Basketball Wives.
All this for a receiver who had some of the worst measurables at the 2010 NFL scouting combine:
40 - 4.71
3-cone drill - 7.10
Short Shuttle - 4.57
Bench Press - 9 reps
Vertical Jump - 33.0(worst amongst WR's)
Broad Jump - 115.0
Is this the type of player this young team needs?
