Just saw that Brian Burnham was ranked first in the league in tough catches with 12 for last season.

I had never seen this stat before and wondered if there is a complete ranking list somewhere. Nothing came up when I "Asked Jeeves" and obviously the person ranking the catches has to be considered but a cool category and Burnham was a beast at catching the ball. Nice to have Manny to deflect the heat but a great combination. Burnham may also have had a 200+ yd game against the Bombers last year.

Would be a tough job for Burnham to crack the Bombers lineup with Darvin Adams being our guy but maybe as insurance in the event of an injury. Should offer him the Nick Moore contract from a couple of years ago and see if it gets any interest.

Wonder who else would be on the list? Adarius Bowman likely for one.

I see there is an amazing catch category as well.

Gonna say that might have lead you to SJ Greens house in past years.

Ernest Jackson 0 drops in 2016. How awesome is that?

Burnham dropped 5.

Clarence Denmark scored 2nd in the league for target percentage and touchdown ratio. Really would have liked for him to be back but hope he does well where ever he goes. Bombers were lucky he was available last year when the new guys brought in were going down.
