I dunno about hands, but he makes Browner look like a wuss when it comes to kicking somebody's teeth in.

That's not the point - it's like KMajor said

That keeps the ball in the passer's hand a split second longer and - WHOOSH!!! BAAMM!!! K-SPLAT!!!, defensive line forces ball loose and the turnovers are twenty yards upfield like the Dome Patrol days...hopefully...

Lewis cannot return to PUP since he practiced in training camp.

Reminds me of Champ Bailey signing.

Peyton looking to make headlines, get somebody's attention!!!!!
If some how makes opening day roster, he won't finish many games
w/ new rules for ejection after 2 infractions.

He isn't better than Breaux. A 32 yr old 7th rd pick that pass his prime that provide experience ONLY to a very young set of corners

Brian Dixon 3 yrs
Damian Swann 2yr
PJ Williams 2yr actually 1st
Delvin Breaux 2yr
Crawley rookie
Harris rookie

What does 7th round matter at all to a player that has been in the league that long. Brady was like a 6th round pick. Does that matter one bit at this point in his career? I see him doing like Sharper. We would not have won it all without him.

You missing the point, I am simply saying he is not our best corner. Yes he can provide that veteran leadership but I don't expect him to walk in and be our #1, #2, or even #3 corner
