I agree but it looks like Payton is going the Billechek route (not a bad thing) by signing troubled players to try and get the most out of them before sending them on their way.
Normally I wouldnít go for this but at this point in the season it canít hurt. Looks like heís pretty damn committed to getting another trophy.

Give him a chance...he’s been in dysfunction the last 2 years. A different culture can do a world of good.

This is a huge upgrade over TJ Green and Hampton

None other than Jean Laffite. Helped protect the mouth of the Mississippi.

Roll up your sleeves .. time to go to work.
Honestly, I think heís a steal. I didnít know he was still out there.

This might be needed more than any of us thought. I can't believe that he was available as talented as he is. This shored up the safety spot and allows us to look at our options next year when working up new contracts as well as keeping talent on the field if a starter goes down.

We’re the fourth team he’s been on in the last year... why can’t people believe he was available?

Heís graded out really high over the last 3 years.

83 - 2016
73 - 2017
79 - 2018

I would think at the very least heíd be on a roster as a back up. Maybe teams are scared of his style of play since heís a big hitter and the game is moving away from that.
