I mean we have Old Man River Bellamy. Troy Vincent at 50% of his prime is better than Craft IMO. Read the link, he has been teaching the young Bills DBs about reading film. Sounds like a good influence besides on the field play.

Yea or Nay?

His age that bothers me some , I mean the guy is 35 years old and coming off an injury, I don't know about this one Kelley..
I'd have to pass on him if it was up to me..

Wait, how does his age bother anyone and Bellamy or Beerman's doesn't? Whoa. Vincent was a better player than either in his prime. I woulda brought him in at safety like ghandi mentioned in the Bellamy thread.

Tyler Everett Grade: 3.11
Position: S
Class: Sr
School: Ohio State
Conference: Big Ten
Ht., Wt.: 5-11, 202
40 Time: 4.65
Grading System


BIO: Moved into the starting lineup midway through his junior campaign and posted career bests of 39/1/6. Senior totals included 33 tackles.

POSITIVES: Hard-working defensive back with special teams ability. Fast in all directions and effective facing the quarterback in zone coverage. Quick closing to the play and will mix it up.

NEGATIVES: Lacks top cover skills, trails receivers in man-to-man situations and slow locating the ball.

ANALYSIS: Possessing adequate size/speed numbers, Everett could make a roster as a ninth defensive back.

PROJECTION: Undrafted Free Agent

Practice squad. cut by the bears. youth baby.

Vincent's age cant be a factor. Its not as if we are targeting him in the offseason to patch a glaring hole on our team. Its midseason and we may be looking for some depth and possibly some veteran leadership on an otherwise very young team. His age is not a factor. He is not being looked at as a long term solution...just about 10 games.

The dude may have lost a step from his All-Pro days as a CB, but I'm pretty sure he can still play safety. Look at the other guys in that mold that made the transition well into their careers & played well......Rod Woodson, Aeneas Williams, etc...... I think he would be a solid edition, if not for his veteran knowledge alone.
