Tab Perry released, Robertson retires

If you look up the phrase "injury-prone" in the dictionary, you'll very likely see a picture of Tab Perry next to the entry.

On Saturday May 24, during OTA practices, the wide receiver and special teams player tore his Achilles' tendon. Of course, with the new regime's lock-down policy on media access, no one knew about it until today.

The team has subsequently released him, meaning one less big receiver in the mix and one less player to challenge for a kick returning gig next to Ted Ginn.

But, honestly, did anyone expect Perry to make it to the regular season unscathed? I certainly didn't.


In other news, rookie DT Kory Robertson has already decided to hang up his cleats for good. As the Palm Beach Post is reporting, Robertson has decided to retire. No reason is yet known for his decision.

Despite being an undrafted free agent, Robertson had been working in practice as the second string nose tackle behind Jason Ferguson. His departure will likely mean Paul Soliai will get more of an opportunity to redeem himself after a horrible rookie season.
