Interesting signing! I hope he comes in and fits in well... rumours of him being a selfish player... hope it's not true!

He appears to be a solid DB that's willing to get dirry. Also returner as well. We'll take any help we can get.

Where is our scouting staff? Mega dollars spent on scouting and we continuously sign other teams rejects!

Jovon Johnson was also a "other teams reject" and he's turned out pretty darn well, if I may say so myself.
