Reports: Former UF running back Jeff Demps to sign with Patriots

Former UF running back Jeff Demps has agreed to a contract with the New England Patriots, according to the FOX TV News affiliate in Tampa and multiple sources.

Demps was being sought by several NFL teams and turned down serious interest from the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The length and terms of the deal have not yet been disclosed.

Demps is expected to step in and fill a void at kick returner for New England. He will join several former Gators on the Patriots roster in defensive end Jermaine Cunningham, linebacker Brandon Spikes, tight end Aaron Hernandez, defensive tackle Gerard Warren and wide receiver Jabar Gaffney.

Spikes tweeted, "6 gators on the Pats now !!!!!!! #GrinchSmile the more the better !!" this afternoon.

After rushing for 2,470 yards and 23 touchdowns at Florida, Demps spent the spring concentrating on track and field and went to London as a part of the 4x100-meter relay team which took home a silver medal.

Yawn!!

How fast does he run the 40?

Bill Belicheck knows football, and he keeps signing Gators. Speed at kick returner, good for the Pats, bad for the rest of the AFC east.
Good luck to Jeff.

If U were ranked in the Top-25, U'd be screaming how it proves that U were on Ur way back and how it mean't something hUge... bUt Ur ranked outside the Top-FIFTY behind such programs as Utah, USF, UCF, FIU, Cincinnati, Missouri, N.C. State, Houston, Louisiana Tech, Mississippi St. and N. Illinois... U may want to ignore that fact by saying, "oh that's nothing." But is speaks volUmes on a National scale as to what Coaches and people that know College Football think of Ur irrelevant little football program in terms as to where U are and where Ur heading...

More decommits, more transfers, no players.

It is going to stink worse than usual in the trailerpark this fall.

Since you linked to a Canes article, you might want to read a couple of Gator articles, fool.

Future not very bright for the Gators, as the Gators lose Story, and lose a couple of linemen they are in desperate need of:

Gators deal with spate of decommitments
GAINESVILLE, Fla. -- With the loss of four-star offensive line prospects Rod Johnson (Delray Beach, Fla./American Heritage) and Josh Outlaw (Lithonia, Ga./Martin Luther King) over the past week, the Gators find themselves in a bind along the offensive line.

And of course this gem from ESPN, showing the present isn't great, either:

Gators hold rare open practice

TRAILERPARKVILLE, Fla. -- Two weeks before the season opener, No. 23 Florida held a rare, open practice Saturday in The Swamp.
The Gators better hope it's not an indication of things to come.
About 1,000 fans showed up for a two-hour session in full pads that coach Will Muschamp called a "little sluggish."
Florida's offense, led by competing quarterbacks Jacoby Brissett and Jeff Driskel, mostly struggled in 11-on-11 drills.

But keep on cutting and pasting your lies about an undefeated season for the Gators, the rest of the world knows the truth about your sinking ship.

"More decommits, more transfers, no players."

decommits and transfers happen to every team, good thing for the Gators is that they have a ton more recruits in the fold and can deal easily with the loss of a few. It is programs like the sorry canes that have to worry since they only have a bout 13 recruits in the fold they can't afford to lose not even one. But they will lose several when the NCAA hammer falls.

"But keep on cutting and pasting your lies about an undefeated season for the Gators, the rest of the world knows the truth about your sinking ship."

No one is calling for an undefeated season you Moron.
The rest of the world knows the cane ship has already sunk and is not about to surface for decades more.

"Do they make #55 Foam Fingers ?"

LMAO, what makes this a classic is that it's so true.

Awww his little fringe were hurt....bwahahaha

Yeah, ESPN is lying, I guess.

"good thing for the Gators is that they have a ton more recruits in the fold and can deal easily with the loss of a few."

Yeah? Like who? No RB depth. No WR depth. No O-line depth. Powell is out and you have a 5th year senior trying to hold the line.

Sure sounds like depth.

Remember, Saban is terrified of Frankie Hammond and Quinton Dunbar. He is losing sleep over it.


Damn, that school is such garbage. No critical thinking skills or even real-life skills to speak of.

You wasted 7 years of undergrad, gomer.

From ESPN:

"TE Colin Thompson is out 2 - 3 months and Jordan Reed is the only tight end on the roster who has caught a pass in a game."

You were saying about depth? Laughable if you weren't so stupid, gomer. No wonder this state is in a world of hurt when it's largest school is a public diploma mill pumping out idiots who care only about "der dum football."

Mike Gillislee is your RB.

BWWWAHAHAHHAHAHAH. I heard Richt is losing sleep. How do you possibly game plan for Gilly?

Duke Johnson in his sleep is better than Gilly. Maybe that is why Muscrap wanted him so bad.

"I feel like we just didn't see eye to eye with the coaches with my situation," Outlaw said.

----

LOL! Overbearing and overconfident coaches are scaring off top recruits before getting them to sign on the dotted line. Love it.

REPORT: Demps did NOTHING in New England's game, and is just another clipboard holder on the way to getting cut.

Wow, the cane Morons are having fun posting garbage here, can't wait for the season to start, once they begin losing again they will surely shut up. Maybe not, they are delUsional Morons after all, but who cares.

Demps was just signed a day before the game, how the heck is going to play you dUmmy.

You keep harping on the few guys that transfered, again we don't need them we have more. You just lost a CB who will transfer, you need him a lot more than we do. And your best O linemen is awol and rumored to going to the other UM, that would be Minnesota for you Morons. His replacement? Another freshman, talk about no depth.

Even with Powell out our D line is set and ready to rock with seniors and juniors as starters and sophs and very talented 5 star freshmen as backups. How's your D line? Outside Chicken man, a bunch of no name preenders, no depth, actually no starters either.

The TE who got hurt is a freshman he wasn't going to start. Reed is the starter, Omarius Hines can back him up he has tons of experience, so does Burton.
Same thing can be said for our RBs and WRs.

Funny how a "fan" of the canes comes here to rag about lack of depth and experience when the whole planet agrees that that is exactly the problem with the canes.
Joe Rose was talking about that this AM on the radio. He was amazed at the level of delUsion and stUpidity of the cane callers. I expect nothing but stUpidity and delUion from Morons like you.

You can stop changing your stUpid name e all know ou are the same loser.

W.R. Dorsett trew a ToUchdown pass last jear mang... He's experienced !

"Funny how a "fan" of the canes comes here to rag about lack of depth and experience when the whole planet agrees that that is exactly the problem with the canes."

Loser, you have been spamming the Canes site 24/7 for the past five years, and you complain about a single visit on here? You truly are a disturbed and obessed sicko with mother issues. You don't like us here, then WHY ARE YOU TROLLING THE CANES SITES FIRST, SICKO?

Mike Gillislee is your RB. GIIIIIIILLLLLLLLYYYYYYY!!!!!

BWWWAHAHAHHAHAHAH. I heard Richt is losing sleep. How do you possibly game plan for Gilly?

Duke Johnson in his sleep is better than Gilly. Maybe that is why Muscrap wanted him so bad.

Delusional Gatr Trash.

RutRoh you missed the point, typical of a delUded cane Moron. I've been posting on your loser site on and off for the past 2 years, not 5, not 24-7. Your cane pig is the one who camped here last year 24-7. Who trolled first, who cares. You are dUmb to post what you do when your team is in much worse shape than ours. But I know you miss the point since you are a delUded Moron.

Gilly eats James lunch everyday and twice on Saturdays. James is your starter Moron. Lil Duke has done nothing he may be good but even so, if he is, he will make tons of freshmen mistakes. Goldencrap wishes he had an experienced and strong back like Gilly. You will see.

"W.R. Dorsett trew a ToUchdown pass last jear mang... He's experienced "
I heard that too, and laughed just like Joe Rose did. Rose was too polite not to call the idiot names but the implication was there that all these cane "fans" are delUsional, uneducated about the game, and just plain dUmb. But we all knew that already.

James is our starter, Lil Duke is the backup.
Hurns and Dorssett at WR
We be experience and deep
We are the delUsional canes
ACC here we come
Ha, ha, ha, ha

There isn't a coach in the SEC LEast who isn't terrified of Gilly.

BWWAHAHAHHAHHHA. Quinton Dunbar and FRankie Hammond? Double BWWWAHAHHAHA.

After you squeak by Bowling Green, it is going to be a loooooooooong season in the cesspool.

"much worse shape"? LOL!

you beat one winning team all year, mighty furman, thanks to blown plays by them. LMAO @ UF!

don't claim we are much worse when you have no proof of that, because it is a lie.

stupid troll, you are definitely a liar. both teams were 6-6 last year (before your easy bowl game against another 6-6 team that turned tense when OSU tied it up in the second quarter, where your offense only scored 10 points against them and needed another bunch of blown plays by OSU just like with Furman) and Miami beat OSU much worse than UF did, and played FSU closer than UF did, so how are we in much worse shape, troll?

Try to answer with facts. I know you can't, troll, but try anyway.

"Goldencrap" really? Because you've seen your coach called "Muscrap", which is a play on his name, you write the exact same thing about Golden, even though it makes no sense.

You must have the IQ of a slug.

"if you take away the receptions in the three “revenue” games last year (Florida Atlantic, Alabama-Birmingham and Furman), Florida's returning wide receivers had a total of 19 catches in 2011.

That's not good."

WR depth? Really? Hmmmmm, now, Gomer, you are stupid as a log and ignorant as can be, but even you have to know that there are no WR's on the Gatr Trash roster worth anything. Zero. The only one worth anything just transferred.


It is going to be a loooooong season in Alachua County's largest trailerpark.

"don't claim we are much worse when you have no proof of that, because it is a lie."

qUe mUcho El Worsoo ?

Not a claim... Just a Fact that U can't come to grips with... U'd think after going 47-40 and Under .500 in the ACC the last 7 years, U'd finally see what Ur shoveling CaneClUck. bUt Ur learning disability is hopeless. U enjoy Ur 5-7 and no Bowl game again this year... Be sure to catch the Gators in yet another January Bowl Game though...

U need to take Ur argUement out West on Tamiami Trail to the Program that got 1 vote and is ranked 40th. in the ESPN/USA Today 2012 College Football Poll and ahead of U... It's were U are.

We'll deal with the other Top Programs that are actually Ranked in the Top-25...

Try to answer with facts. I know you can't, troll, but try anyway.

Game, Set, and Match. You Lose Again.

Rut the Moron Roh doesn't get it, doesn't have a clue, and doesn't know what a fact is.
Fact is the Gators beat Furman. No matter the score it is a W. You say Furman had a winning record.
Fact is the canes lost to BC and Maryland. No matter your ton of excUses they are both a L.
Fact is BC and Maryland had losing records, terriblr records.
Fact is a victory over a team with a winning record is much better than 2 losses to teams with losing records.
Fact is a win is better than a loss.
Fact is you are a Moron for not knowing this.
Fact is a W is better than a L who cares what the other team record is.
Fact is the Gators played and won a January bowl game and finished strong and with a winning record.
Fact is you did not.
Fact is Gilleslee has more experience and better stats than James. We are better at RB.
Fact is we are ranked 23rd.
Fact is not only are you not ranked but most teams in Florida are ranked higher than you.
Fact is that includes FIU, USF and UCF. Therefore you are not even the best team in Miami and are #6 in Florida and #53 in the nation.
Fact is that is pathetic.
Fact is you are much worse than us and 5 other teams in the State.
Fact is you play in one of the weakest conferences in the planet and struggle to have a mediocre record.
Goldencrap sounds good to me, he has also been called Golden shower and Golden retriever, that is also a very good one. Although he is not a dog, his team is.
I have all the facts, problem is you deny reality, you are delUded, and don't know what a fact is.

Fact is head to head Miami holds the series lead.
Fact is Miami has a 5>3 lead in championships.
Fact is Miami has more conference championships than UF at 9>8, despite being an independent for most of their years.
Fact is Miami did better against common opponents last year.
Fact is that Golden is a better coach than Muschamp, despite your cheap personal attacks on him.
Fact is Miami is the better team, but you deny reality, and don't know what a fact is.

Your roster has few SEC caliber players. No coach in the SEC LEast is worried about any of your skill players and your best defender is injured.

Only a dumb delusional 'neck doesn't realize that.

Or that Gatr Trash nation is the most disgusting fan base in the country.

Dems be duh fax, gomer.

Rut The Moron Roh
The first 3 are indeed facts but of no consequence today only relevant from a historic perspective. Do I detect living in the past syndrome?
The fourth one has no relevance either.
The fith is not a fact, just your delUded and idiotic opinion.
The last one is laughable and an example of projecting.

Cane pig the SEC East is better than both ACC divisions combined, by far. Very far. If the are "least" then what is the ACC?
We have a ton of All SEC players, you have an All ACC punter.
Powell is injured, Floyd and Easly are just as good and we have tons of depth.
You have no one half as good as any of those 3 and no depth. Projecting again.
Your few fans and your sorry team take the top prize in disgusting and hated.
My handle is true. Facts you aint got. It sUcks to be U.

it will become true:

"we have tons of depth."

No WRs; no RBs; Two awful QBs; no OL; Best defensive player out till end of Oct. and a freshman taking over.

Yep. Sure sounds like depth to me. AGain, Saban and Richt must be working overtime trying to gameplan for Dunbar, Hammonds and Gilly.

YEAAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA. BBWWWAAHAHAHHA.

Dumb 'billy. You need to go back for your 8th year of undergrad.

Well this is deja vu all over again, the cane pig camped here 24 - 7 posting non sense.
I've responded to your Moronic rants so far but you keep coming back with the same delUsional crap.
So long pig I leave you alone, won't post on this thread or even read more comments again.
I will take my wit to your sorry loser's site now. I'm sure I';; "see" you there.
My Handle is True. My Arguments you can't refute. It sUcks to be U.

"Golden shower" and "Golden retriever" are both jokes, plays on words, obviously made up with someone with more than two brain cells to rub together.

"Goldencrap" is something a complete moron with no ability for cognitive thought comes up with in response to something he read.

"I will take my wit to your sorry loser's site now. I'm sure I';; "see" you there.
My Handle is True. My Arguments you can't refute."

Ahh, yes, the illiterate blog Einstein. Way to go, dumg gomer.

Seriously, you need another year of undergrad for a total of 8 from that public diploma mill.

State cutting tenure professorships and merit scholarships but, yeah, that school still provides a good "edumucaysion."


Dumb 'billies. Fear the Bowling Green Falcons. You may squeak by them in football. They are light years better academically. Sucks to be a card carrying member of the most disgusting fan base in tehe country: UFailure.

It's an awesome article in favor of all the online visitors; they will get benefit from it I am sure.
