Stanback, Isaiah

Card: Topps 2007 Exclusive
Acquired: 2012, Canton Acquisition

Isiah Stanback was a multidimensional athlete for the Washington Huskies during his time there from 2002-2006. He’d play at wide receiver and then primarily at quarterback for the team, racking up 3,868 yards and 22 touchdowns in 22 starts. He’d also rush for 794 yards and 11 touchdowns while pulling in 12 receptions for 146 yards. In the off-season Isiah made an impact as a track man, and while he’d find his name etched into the top 5 of the school’s recordbooks for many categories, it’d be Stanback’s speed that intrigued scouts the most.

Scouts pegged Isaiah as a wide receiver, and the Cowboys pulled the trigger on him with their 4th round selection of the 2007 draft and spent nearly his entire rookie season on the practice squad. After recording 2 receptions for 24 yards the next year, he’d be placed on injured reserve with a bum shoulder. Cut in 2009, Isaiah has been on the practice squads of New England (2009), Seattle (2010-2011), and the Giants (2011-2012).
