Interesting in a lot of plays the way he's lined up and gets upfield looks like fit for the 'Double A-gap' blitz McD allegedly likes to run

Buffalo Bills sign DE Jake Metz, 2016 AFL Defensive Player of the Year

 

The Buffalo Bills have dipped into the (China) Arena Football League to add to their roster, signing DE Jake Metz on Friday.
 
Metz, 26, went undrafted in 2014 out of Shippensburg. He’s nearly 6’6” and 265 pounds. At the Villanova pro day that year, Metz didn’t have an impressive workout, running a 4.99 in the 40 and being clocked at 4.91 in the short shuttle and 7.31 in the three-cone drill.
 
In college, Metz was incredibly productive, notching 55 tackles for loss and 30.5 sacks in four seasons.
 
In August of 2016, Metz was named the AFL’s Defensive Player of the Year after leading the league with eight sacks. That led to him being signed by the Eagles in late August, but his time with Philadelphia was short lived. He was released on September 3.
 
He spent the 2016 season playing for Qingdao Clipper of the China Arena Football League.

Philly connection with McD? He must have talked to some scouts with Eagles.

 

They grew up in the same area too

Watching the video I think I could have made those plays against those lineman. Against Real NFL talent the guy will be unnoticeable

Metz then moved on to play for the Qingdao Clipper of the China Arena Football League. They lost to Beijing by one point in the China Bowl last November, robbing Metz of the chance to become a champion in two different countries.

 

I admit it - I have watched games on TV when visiting in Hong Kong.

I wonder if he just wanted a "working vacation" there.

Zhang means "Archer" but like Williams and Smith are very common last names.

i was thinking that too. he made that one blocker whiff so bad he flopped himself to the ground. i was thinking thats impressive but would never happen in the nfl

 

cool guy to really root for in training camp but id place the odds at about two pcent he makes the team

this is actually kind of cool if he works out. don't see it too often, if at all and certainly not as much as the other way around. NFL to AFL
