Toal gets "cut"

Brian Toal was given a tryout by the New York Jets of the NFL and supposedly he had a very good mini-camp. However, the Jets did not sign him and give him a chance to earn a spot on the team at training camp.

One New Jersey writer says "Interestingly, the Jets didn't sign linebacker Brian Toal, the New Jersey native and former Boston College star. It's believed the club has concerns about his size (6-foot, 238 pounds), attitude, and injury history."

Size, sure he is not even close to the size of a prototypical Linebacker in the NFL. Injury history, sure he has missed 2 whole years with 2 different injuries while at BC. Attitude? Now there is no way Toal has an attitude problem. He is one of the nicest persons I have ever met in my life and he would do anything to play the game of football. He loves the game and I don't see where this is coming from. It is either a flat out lie or some false speculation.

Hopefully Toal gets a shot at someone else's training camp because he surely deserves one.
