Announced this afternoon.
I am seriously starting to worry about this packers/Denver signings. It is as if they do not look else where what so ever.
And who out there should they have looked at?
I think this is more of a signing of oppurtunity then anything, since he was released about a week ago.
I'm just kinda glad it's not McCleon, Denver's cast offs are still better then out spare parts from last year.
They might actually take your thoughts on this into account.... if you had posted them on a Broncos or Packers fan site. I'm afraid posting on a Texans site isn't going to get it done my friend.
I don't really care who they sign when it's a free agent off the scrap heap in the middle of the season. If all they pursue is former Broncos or Packers during the offseason, then I'd be a little irked.
Anyone know anything about this cat other than the stat line?
Is he an FS or a SS? I'm assuming he's a depth guy but I wonder if this is the dude that Kubiak said "he may be playing soon" or something to that effect....
From what I can gather going over the Bronco's message baord, he was their primary back up at SS, but he filed in at FS when Lynch went down in J-Ville, he palyed corner in college.
Broncos, go figure.
Excellent news. Another Bronco and another Strong Safety.
insurance. good, smart signing under the circumstances this late in the season
I've never heard of him, but we need something in the secondary. Give em' hell, kid.
I don't know, but I hear he is a bad ass.
Funny, I quoted you TC in this post and now you post this thread that we signed the guy.
from NFL.com stats, he had 1 int 4 pdef and 26 tackles last year (dont quote me I'm tired) but that was with only 4 starts and 21 of those tackles were solo, wich is good news for a DB. probably be a nickle/dime/breather guy to start and he apparently excelled at special teams so that's a bonus too. hey we need the bodies at this stage of the season.
Why would the Broncs release their primary backup at SS, who can also play FS and CB?
He looks interesting and appears to have upside.
Maybe Shanahan and the Denver staff were looking out for Kubiak?
i actually remember seeing him playing last year because the announcers were making a deal about how lynch was out... iirc, they were saying how cox is good in coverage but a poor tackler and later he did whiff on two tackles during that game (which they focused on).. id say its a decent enough signing
A Strong Safety who is afraid of tackling?? Lol! Nice signing.
..but good in coverage- which we need.. fs/ss is overrated.. he can play either
Don't get me wrong I like the signing, but a SS (and that's his original position) that is afraid of tackling is kinda funny.
Dear Lord, since you won't buy me a Mercedes Benz, would you please send me a free safety to watch on my color TV? IF you can find a free safety a strong safety will do, cause at the rate we lose them, I'll never have a good night on the town. signed Janis Joplin
