Released by the Titans on August 26, Orr has a shot at the practice squad, even though Oakland added Chris McFoy to the squad on Sunday.
"I think Wisconsin prepared me very well," Orr said. "There's other aspects to [playing receiver] than just catching and I feel like I had a chance to focus on those a lot and get pretty solid in those. I can get a lot better."
Here is a scouting report on Orr as he came out of Wisconsin:
Full Name: Jonathan Orr School: Wisconsin Pos: WR
Ht: 6-2 Wt: 198 40: 4.45 Year: 5Sr
Bio: Four-year starter who totaled 40/688/8 as a senior. Impacted the program as a freshman, when he started 13 games and produced career-best numbers of 47/842/8.
Pos: Outstanding athlete with great upside for the next level. Quick to top speed and runs away from opponents in the open field. Strong, makes the tough catch in a crowd or out-muscles defenders for the reception. Consistently comes back to the quarterback, working to make himself an available target. Effective blocking downfield for the running game.
Neg: Must improve his route-running. Double-catches a lot of passes and lacks overall consistency.
Analysis: After a sensational freshman season, Orr watched his play level off. Showed signs of life last season
and has tremendous size/speed numbers. Could reward a franchise that is patient.
