    Wow! I honestly thought he was still on the roster. I remember him being a RFA, just thought he re-signed.

    Liked him a lot but he was a poor fit for the new scheme.

    we could use him as a backup.. i think he would be fine at that job. But it's kansas if he's impressive there.. well

    Agreed. Plus he was expendable because McSurdy should give us the same thing.

    Edit: did we cut mcsurdy too?

    Yes. I believe Dallas didn't tender him for that reason. He's a big thumper, while the new scheme calls for players with great movement skills.

    I believe Orie ran a 4.95, Kiffin wants guys who can run and the MLB needs to be able to take a deep drop in coverage.

    Well he should go on to do pretty decent in a 3/4.


    In the 4/3 he wasn't going to be able to run in coverage as a LB or rush as a DE.

    Good Luck Orie Lemon!

    good for him, i liked him as a player but if he has more success with Kansas i wish him well. I hope he stays a good person and has a successful career.

    fair enough. I should have known that but i meant the team Kansas but it could go either way. but the correction isnt wrong.

    Most folks don't realize the team is actually in Missouri. Kansas City is really misleading. LOL

    Always liked Lemon. I wish we could have found more playing time for the guy, but here's hoping he does well in KC.
