    This looks like a good depth move.

    Free agents are a lot like Christmas trees - the longer you wait, the cheaper the price. If they don't work out - just say WTF (what the flock) :rolleyes:

    It's definitely a good signing. Not easy to find players who have significant experience playing both 1 gap/tech and 2 gap/4/5/6 tech.

    He definitely profiles as the rotational backup for Heyward and Tuitt, but could also get some reps inside in our nickel fronts given his time as an undertackle.

    Love it, definitely one of those under the radar signings that you don't think about but could surprise sometime in the season.

    I like this better than our more recent DL depth signings like Matthews and Cam Thomas, though Matthews had a few decent moments.

    I can't imagine that the dollars are significant.

    Didn't see this thread and posted a new one... Ooops.

    I quite like this signing. Solid depth and a former 1st round pick.

    Cool. We are loving these top picks from other teams. Maybe they are hoping THEY can actually turn one into a Top 10 player but I doubt it. Other organizations already ruined them.

    Very good indeed.

    As you said RPO, being able to play all three positions on the defense does boost the depth indeed.

    This could signal the end of the McCullers era

    Very well could... I'd love to hold on to mountain man Dan, just because I think he has so much upside. Alas, if he refuses to leave his baby Huey demeanor and develop some nastiness he won't be around much longer and I really think he's shown that he's too much of a gentle giant to flip the switch

    While I think the McCullers era could be over regardless... Alualu doesn't really replace any of McCullers snaps at 0 tech, he's not a NT.

    He will get another shot at camp, but it's time to :poopy: or get off the pot.
