Many of the guys signed at this stage are signed for one reason. They are going to play a role in training camp. Whether it be scout team bodies for our starters to pound or legitimate long shots to make the team or a place to audition for other teams. They know why they are here, and we know why they are here.

Practice Fodder.

If they want him only as training camp fodder, I wonder why they signed him for 2 years rather than just one?

Dang Joe, you\'re always tryin to confuse the issue with facts and logic and stuff!

Maybe its a salary cap thing? Or perhaps a big cruel joke on the kid.

I\'m sorry. I didn\'t mean to confuse anyone. LOL. Maybe this guy is good? It\'s not easy to find a good long snapper you know.
