As long as Payton knows what he's doing thats all that matters. Wish they would've addressed the OL but owell.

It's an intriguing pickup. It doesn't cost us a draft pick or anything does it?

I've never really liked them using Sproles as the return guy. Williams has some great numbers in a league that has a thing against fair catches. Could be a real good pickup for us.

Preston Parker would have done just fine on kick off/punt returns. I thought the guy had a solid camp.

Something is not right. I guess Moore is out for a while or Sproles is hurt.
