Purvis and Garcia

I forgot to mention this when the Shock signed WR Robert Redd earliier this week. Spokane has traded Neil Purvis, a defensive lineman who played a key role in the Shock's ArenaCup championship run in 2006, to Jacksonville for future considerations. Spokane signed Purvis a while ago, but he had reservations about reporting and wanted to stay closer to home on the East Coast.

Here's an update from the Shock's open tryout last week in Los Angeles.

Also, former WSU quarterback Aaron Garcia, a mainstay in the old AFL, has signed with Jacksonville.
