Never heard of him, just looked him up. Entered the draft as a DE, converted to FB from a college DL, spent 2 years in the Bengals PS and sometime in the UFL.

Pro day results:

He went to Brown, so I'm guessing Rab knows something about him at least.

Serious question: is this a confirmed signing? Saying he's "in the locker room" doesn't necessarily mean he's been signed to the 53. It sounds like, at a minimum, he has PS eligibility left.

Could be signed to the PS... didn't say if he signed to the 53 roster or PS but if he's in the locker room, he's a Patriot one way or another.

Saw James Develin in the locker room, so it was obvious he signed. A source said he has joined the practice squad.

He was a pretty stellar DE in college. Always got penetration, stout vs. the run. Good athlete and a smart guy to boot. I didn't know him personally though Sad.

Would it be against the rules to have a coach throwing? Because we have Chris Simms Laughing
