Roster Rundown: Alan Ball

Name: Alan Ball
Position: Cornerback
Height/Weight: 6-1, 186
Experience: 1 season
College: Illinois
Key stat: That would be 186 . . . as in pounds, a significant increase last season from the 175 pounds he showed up weighing in 2007 as a seventh-round draft choice when he spent 14 games on the practice squad before getting signed to the 53-man roster for the final two. And after running into Ball a few weeks ago, it appears he might have pushed his weight into the 190-range, which gives him a better chance to compete against NFL receivers.
