Maurice Purify Absolutely Buries Roy Williams

Josh mentioned this during his Hard Knocks recap and for those of you who didn't get to see it, here's the video. I'm not sure, however, just how long it will stay up, so get it while it's hot.  While Maurice Purify is listed as a practice squad member, if he keeps smashing the Bengals safeties like he did in the video, there might be a spot for him on the tight end squad, because Lord knows they need the help.

Hey, it's a better idea than switching a "stiff" defensive player just to save money, isn't it?  At least Purify has experience catching the ball.  Granted Chris Harrington outweighs Purify by 40 or so pounds (260 to 224), so the idea isn't that great, but it's still better than the one offered by Mike Brown.  I'd like to see if Harrington can block like Purify did in the above video.

One last thing before I end this post -- cutting a player at 5:30 in the morning is cruel, unusual, and just plain rude and unprofessional.  Also, being an ass to the player while he's struggling for lucidity is not "professional" or a particularly "hard knock" thing to do.  It's just mean and it makes the Bengals staff look like a bunch of dicks and/or Mike Brown automatons.

Surely the franchise can do better than that.  Surely.
