Straight from Pro Football Talk:
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers continued to add to their wide receiver position on Thursday with the signing of former Denver Broncos receiver Eric Page.
Good to see Page get another chance to take his skills to the next level after an ACL injury cut his run with the Broncos short.
Page is the University of Toledo’s all-time leading receiver and was signed by the Broncos as an undrafted free agent last year. He was released by Denver in July with an injury settlement after suffering a torn ACL in training camp. He caught 306 passes for 3,443 yards and 25 touchdowns in three seasons for Toledo.
Page joins Danny Noble, another Rocket-alum, on the Tampa Bay roster. Good luck to them both.
Caught this video around the web. It is a video focusing on what it is like to be a Toledo Rocket.
Head Coach Matt Campbell announced today that three recruits from the 2013 signing class have enrolled for the spring semester and will join the squad for winter workouts and spring practice. The three players are Robert Zimmerman, a junior college defensive tackle out of Hutchinson (KS) Community College, Boston Mathews, an offensive lineman from Crystal Lake, IL and Logan Woodside, a quarterback from Frankfort, KY.

It’s always a good sign when the recruits start showing up on campus. The transition from high school to college can be difficult sometimes, so it’s always refreshing to see these young men continue to follow their dreams.
Despite the loss of two stars, the Toledo Rockets gave No. 18 Utah State all it could handle before losing, 41-15, at the Famous Idaho Potato Bowl in Boise, ID on Saturday.
Senior linebacker Dan Molls, the nation’s leading tackler, was knocked out of the game with a concussion on the game’s opening kickoff. A short while later, junior running back David Fluellen reinjured his sore left ankle and never returned.
Despite those losses, Toledo was in the game well into the fourth quarter, trailing just 13-9 before a 63-yard touchdown run by USU’s Kerwynn Williams put the game on ice just under the seven-minute mark. Williams then followed with two more scoring runs of five and 25 yards to finish the game with 18 carries for 235 yards.
In the end, the Rockets just couldn’t stay with the Aggies and handed it over in the fourth quarter. Though this was a disappointing loss, it ends a season where Toledo performed well; highlighted by the win over Cincinnati in the middle of the season. A huge thank you goes out to all the seniors for their contributions to rebuilding the program over their tenure at UT. They leave the program in much better shape than they arrived and that warrants acknowledgement.
The Toledo Rockets (9-3, 6-2 MAC) are coming off a win at home against Akron, 35-23. QB Terrance Owens and RB David Fluellen sat out of the final game of the regular season due to minor injuries. The Rockets were led by QB Dantin who completed 29 of 35 passes for 327 yards and 5 touchdowns. Alonzo Russell caught 9 passes for 139 yards and two touchdowns. David Pasquale had 7 catches for 110 yards and a touchdown and also carried the ball 15 times for 93 yards.
