    i like the move as well. im curious as to how he will fit in with our defense since he has the ability to play CB and safety.

    whats the scouting report on him?

    I still think there were players that could have/should have been released before Frye.

    I thought Wilson was a safety?

    We are raiding the NFC South I guess. Anyway Wilson sounds good to me. Hopefully Frye clears waivers and we cut someone from the PS to make room for him.

    Hopefully he performs at a much higher level than Rosevelt Colvin. From what I've read Wilson was a victim of the numbers game and got beat out by a young undrafted free agent CB from Troy, Elbert Mack, who started opposite Leodis McKelvin.

    Now this is good news. We just got better. I'm feeling really good about our secondary as the season wears on.

    Molden will get better, Dunta will come back and our depth will be very good. The combination of Wilson and Harrison provide us with much more flexibility in the secondary since both have corner skills but can play safety.

    I'm excited about this one!

    He plays FS and then Demps slides over to SS?

    Does he still have any game left? And if so why was he released by the Bucs?

    He was used by the Pats mostly as a FS while also contributing to STs. Here's a pretty detailed summary of his play as posted on the Pats site. His 2006 season was spent on IR because of groin/hamstring injuries which has since not appeared to be a problem.

    I did a little research and looks like he did little to distinguish himself in the preseason and got caught up in the #'s game.

    I thought this guy was a fossil.... he's only 28! Just entering his prime.


    Former 2nd round pick for the Pats, had two very good season a decent third one and was injure for the most part of his fourth and last year with them. Anybody knows why he couldn't stick with the Pats or Bucs, is it an injury issue? Or is he not good enough?

    if this guy is that great, he'd have been kept by someone. This doesn't mean he isn't better than our current bench warmers, but I see nothing to be overly exicited about here.

    This is great news. At the minimum, it doesn't make the team any worse. Frye was a guy destined for the PS... he needs to develop under Gibbs another year and then hopefully come in to take Salaams place as a 4th tackle + have back up Guard duty.

    On to Wilson... I'm excited about this. I don't think he's going to come in and be a pro bowler but he should provide us with some quality play and quality depth. I was very suspicious of us getting rid of Fletcher and only having four CB's. This explains a lot. He can provide depth at both CB and S.

    Just hope he works out better than Boulware (Wilson should be used differently anyways).

    Maybe. On the other hand, he could be our next Will Demps.
