A beast who was benched twice in the past 2 seasons. Yeah, he's a beast.

On PB, I like the pickup.. At worst, he's a depth guy who can make some plays when given the opportunity. Also, he'll be in the mix at PR and represents an upgrade from ARE and anyone else we have on the roster.

I think it's been fairly well established that the benching was less a result of ability and more a coaching decision. Chances are his stone hands had something to do with it, but GB was not keeping him in, unless he had no other choice.

Gives us more speed and a guy who can cover in the slot.
Good move for us.

I'll be the first to say it, Camp Fodder.

Lack of playmaking+getting beat like a 3rd grader on playground double moves+piss poor attitude=him getting benched. To say it was all Blache is ridiculous.

Ridiculously accurate. To say it was all Blache, that is.

My guess is that he will be starting by week 3 if not sooner. Nice pick-up. It's nice to see a front office that makes some sensible moves and sign them for cheap!

Smoot couldn't be benched because he was already on the bench. Smoot was the 4th corner last year.

And I'll be the first to second this notion. This is a very ho-hum signing IMO.

5 teams in 7 years. Reminiscent of the Mike Rumph signing...

Just looking at his deal I'd say he's more than camp fodder. 1 year $1.5M with incentives of $750k. He's no superstar but he's not just a camp body either.

Nice numbers but he also got cut by Detroit. I really don't think PB will be doing anything except competing with the younger guys as a 3rd or 4th corner.

Blache is gone now so you'll need to find a new excuse for defending Rogers. :-)
