Three years and $18 million. Not sure how it is structured, though.

CB height is over-rated since most of them can dunk a basketball with their elbows, but 5-8 is pretty short.

Though I am wondering if Samuel's ability to cover was propagated by being a DB in 2 divisions that typically had week to moderate QB play. When at NE, he faced jets,dolphins, and bills. When with philly he faced redskins,cowboys, and giants.

Eli just started to play well, and is an interception machine. So Romo is probably the best he faced division wise on a regular basis.
At 5ft 8" ,NFCS has pretty large receivers averaging 6ft 2", and he's facing Brees,Freeman, and Cam. Should be interesting to see how he handles the change.

Run at him. I've heard he's weak against the run so the dump offs and WR screens may produce big results on his side of the field.
Rugby Saint II and Beastmode like this.

I think might have overpaid.
