Re: new cb signed to try out for team

here's a link to a youtube video of his college highlights
looks like he is good in man
which would explain why he didn't work out for chicago
he is number 29 in the gold pants in the beginning of the video and later in white at some point in the video his number is 2
i think i chronicles all four years
get this he has a criminal justice degree

Re: new cb signed to try out for team

Had a write up on him last year but I can not find it with B&G search. Darn. What I can remember is he has one thing against him. Small school. Not a big deal. Coaching can clear that up. Did we hirer a new CB coach yet?
I think I remember something about switching him to FS if he could bulk up a bit.
He may develop into a great gunner on special teams. I will keep digging.
I love the signing for one point: Youth

Atari Bigby (Green Bay) was cut from Chicago without making it through camp...
If he could be at least that good, then we may have a play maker (or at least good competition at the position)

You can't even believe the reports out of training camp.
Devery was wonderful. ( Averaged 1 catch a game )
Jason David was a shut down corner. ( The only thing he shut down were our hopes for a Superbowl birth )
Deuce was running with a purpose. ( He seemed scared once the season started )

Nobody even mentioned that Will Smith gained 24 pounds during the offseason. His lack luster play this year was the proff of him being out of shape.

This year, I'll take everything said during training camp with a grain of salt.
