Filed under 'W' for 'WTF': Keary Colbert hopes to make comeback

Remember when Colbert did this that one time?

Following such players as 'umm' and 'errr' former Carolina Panthers WR Keary Colbert hopes to make an NFL comeback following spending 2009 in the UFL, and most recently working as a WR assistant at USC.

The news was posted by Greg Rosenthal of PFT this morning. The 2004 second round pick of the Carolina Panthers, Colbert was cut following the 2007 season and was cut three times in 2008 by the Denver Broncos, Seattle Seahawks and Detroit Lions respectively. Keary had a decent season in 2007, but he looked much like his scouting report over his time in Carolina- a decent possession WR with no upside, and when you have no upside in the NFL you're pretty much doomed from the outset. 

I don't harbor any ill will toward Colbert, and I wish him the best... but really? Something tells me he should have stayed at USC and not quit his day job for an attempt to come back. There really is little to no chance he'll find a way onto an NFL roster, and talk about picking a bad time to attempt a comeback in the middle of a labor dispute!

If there's one saving grace for Colbert it's that he should thank Drinkie McFailson (Dwayne Jarrett) who supplanted him as 'biggest 2nd round WR failure' for the Carolina Panthers.
