As part of contract it is required he must continue to grow dreads


He was the best kept secret at WR in the draft. He had just better hope Oakland gets a QB (and a new owner soon).

He would be a perfect slot WR in the league. This kid might end up making a lot of folks proud. He slid under the radar last yr, but lots of guys would with J. Jones, A. Jeffrey, and AJ Green in the same league. Good luck D-MO.

Denarius was probably the most athletically gifted Vol player. Al Davis is known for offering the athletic players. This gives Denarius a good opportunity to showcase his talents and pursue a longterm career---even if it is later in a trade to a more competitive team.
