I'm assuming he just isn't that good against NFL competition. Maybe he looks great against 3rd stringers and people who aren't playing anymore, but suffers against pro level competition.

That would explain it but why did they pick him back up and give him a 2 year contract?

Guessing that Highsmith is impressing them enough that Skipper was the odd man out.

Yeah, been reading that a lot at Post Gazette. Highsmith seems to have made a big impression.

I think Darboh made the Practice Squad, I'm interested to see where that kid's career goes. He went to high school with my next door neighbor's son.
