He was good when he was able to get on the field and gives us a solid pass rusher.

Like it. Solid rotational guy and good veteran presence.

Gives us another option at DE. Played decently when he got on the field IIRC.

Lets hope he can contribute and play 10-12 plays a game to rush the passer.

Good signing. We needed some Vet leadership on defensive side. Already familar with Tarver's style and what he expects. Also not gaurenteed we will be able to get a pass rushing DE in the draft.

we won't need to reach with Carter, Hunter and Jack. We can go BPA all the way!!

Good signing. He brought good pressure late in the season when he looked healthy.

Why? Embarassed

Didn't do much last year, way past his prime, is he going to help us get to the playoffs? Nope, so I would rather see what a younger player can do.

i am sure that a younger player will be given every opportunity to beat Carter out for reps, and if he cant and Carter is our best guy for 15-20 snaps then so be it...

Why do you think Reggie picked him up?

I like the move and am not surprised. Gives us an option if the draft doesn't fall our way. We also need a vet to teach the young guys on the DLine.

In my opinion they are a joke. In the last ten years there drafts sucked.

Reggie tryin to set a record for 1 year deals. Like this though. At the minimum he offers veteran leadership. Gonna be interesting to see what guys have that C on their chest come week 1.
