My cousin works at the marriot by the stadium and said there were several football players checking in tonight for a workout tomorrow. He was pretty sure that one of the db's was Derrick Strait, the kid from Oklahoma and was last with the Panthers.

Here for a tryout? Straight from Oklahoma college or the trailer park?

edit: I see you changed your post and provided more info. Much appreciated. Anyone know anything about this guy, the DB I mean?

Derrick Strait was a pretty high draft pick I think, either a 1 or a 2. If I recall, he was considered a good cover 2 or zone corner, not good in man to man. Maybe they are considering a move to safety for him, I don't know?

If anyone can lure Matt Stevens from his spot in line at LA Ink perhaps he'd come play a few games for us....

He has played some corner and safety in his short career. Hasnt had much PT though.

From the story:

"Strait was wearing his old No. 20 Jets jersey Wednesday at practice, alternating between cornerback and safety."
