Mellette was hurt, but I also think the way he handled his knee injury last year probably didn't earn him any fans or favors. It put us in a BAD position going into the denver game, having only 4 WRs active. Whoops.
Then the knee is giving him trouble, and we already have Marlon Brown and we just moved up to draft Campanaro. Bad situation for him.
In reality, they might also be doing him a solid favor. Maybe he can get his knee right and catch on with someone with thinner depth.
As for us, our depth chart is set barring a coup, IMO. T Smith, S Smith, J Jones, M Brown, Campanaro + ???? maybe Laquan if he can special team hard enough. Melette's skill set was as a weaker, more injury prone, now less proven Marlon Brown. Its was duplicative and unnecessary

Guess rookie out of wake has impressed enough or Mellette regressed.Being reported his knee was giving him problems early in OTA's but seemed to bounce back the last two.It's rumored these waivers are a precursor to signing one or two of the CB tryout players and they can sign them back later on.

I hope what he's going thru with his knee doesn't derail his chances of being an NFL player going forward.It is entirely possible that one or both could be looked at again in the future. Melette basically made this team last yr. I find it hard to go from making the team 9mos ago to not being good enough to even take to training camp on a 90-man roster.Wish both of them the best in wherever the road takes them.C DiP
