    We (including myself) give the (patriotsinsider) crap but they had this one and said yesterday they believed it was still a done deal with just a few details to work out so credit to them on this one.

    Real solid signing here.

    He is a solid pickup. Although I still would like to see a DB drafted, I feel pretty comfortable with our CB corps. Samuel, Gay, Hobbs, Scott, and Warfield are a solid group. I think we should still try to grab someone maybe who has the versatility to play either S or CB.

    Good signing. Warfield will at least push Hobbs to solidify his starting role opposite of Asante. Warfield, a Cornhusker, has spent his entire nine NFL years in Kansas City, so it will be interesting to see how he copes with the change in lifestyle.

    Tom Casseli (sp?) from PFW mentioned that Warfield can play S, apparently he used to cover the Chiefs.

    That was mentioned and they said he could play both positions...I heard someone else say that as well..Felger?? A good signing!! But they will draft a CB later Day two...

    I like this move...gotta be better than Starks for a fraction of the cost.

    A little info from his website:

    Pro Career:

    Supremely talented cornerback enters his sixth season with the Chiefs in 2003 and his third season as a full-time starter ... After opening four games in his initial three NFL campaigns, enters this year owning a streak of 32 straight starts ... Opened every game at left corner in 2002 after starting at the right CB post in 2001 ... Has shown flashes of brilliance throughout his career, but has registered consistent numbers each of the past two seasons ... Collected four INTs apiece each of the past two years ... Registered a career-high 77 tackles in 2001 and followed that up with 72 stops a year ago when he led the squad with a career-best 15 passes defensed ... Possesses the physical tools and the technique to compete on a consistent basis with the NFL’s top wide receivers ... Owns excellent recovery speed and a remarkable vertical leap, giving him the ability to bat down balls and come up with big plays in key situations ... Is also capable of pulling off the big play, registering his first pro score for a 51-yard TD vs. Oakland (9/9/01) and making a huge fourth-quarter INT in a 17-16 win vs. Buffalo (11/17/02) ... Owns eight INTs over the past two campaigns, which ties S Greg Wesley for the best mark on the team over that span, while his 26 passes defensed over that span are second to no other Chiefs defender ... Has made tremendous strides since joining the club as a seventh-round draft choice in ’98 ... After appearing in just two games on defense and playing primarily on special teams as a rookie in ’98, burst upon the scene as the Chiefs nickel corner in all 16 games in ’99 and started one contest at left corner ... Appeared in 13 contests with three starts in 2000, but was hampered by a back injury for a good portion of the season before staking his claim to a full-time starting role in 2001 ... Owns 73 games of regular season NFL experience with 36 starts ... Has tallied 11 INTs for 91 yards with a 51-yard TD, in addition to 195 tackles (156 solo), 39 passes defensed, two forced fumbles, a fumble recovery and a QB pressure ... Has been a key special teams performer, owning 31 tackles, a forced fumble and a 20-yard blocked FG return on special teams in the pros after producing three blocked kicks during his collegiate career ... Made the jump to cornerback after playing safety at the University of Nebraska ... Joined the Chiefs as the club’s first of two selections in the seventh round (216th overall) of the ’98 NFL Draft.

    Personal bio:

    First player from the state of Arkansas to earn a football scholarship for the Cornhuskers since those records began being kept in ’71 ... Prepped at Arkansas High School in Texarkana, Arkansas, the same city where his mother currently runs a foster home ... Hosts an annual football camp in his hometown along with fellow Texarkana native, WR Rod Smith (Denver) ... Works closely with the Love Fund for Children. Invites foster children to Arrowhead each month for a pizza party, locker room tour and a chance to meet Coach Vermeil ... Also took a group of children to dinner and the opening night of “Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets†in 2002 ... Attends the annual “Jolly Jingle Jams Kids Party†at the Sunflower House, a child abuse prevention center ... Full name: Eric Andrew Warfield ... Single ... Resides in Leawood, Kansas.

    Had a game with 12 solo tackles last year, from the CB position.... now that's a Belichick corner.

    Here's hoping for the best as we welcome the redoubtable Mr. Warfield!

    Should be interesting at CB in camp.

    Hobbs. Warfield. Gay. Samuel. Scott.

    Can you name one of those who will be a starter for sure . . . or one who won't be a starter for sure ?

    A corner having 12 solo tackles isn't necessarily a good thing. Particularly if they were on pass completions to his side of the field.

    Do you happen to know which game it was? I'd like to just take a look at the play-by-play to see if they were on completion or not.

    Sure. Samuel will be a starter and Scott will be a backup. It's a tossup between the other three.

    I like the signing and I can also see the Pats picking up a linebacker before the draft.

    According to the stats I see, he had :

    11 solos vs. Oakland on 11/6
    9 solos vs. Houston on 11/20
    9 solos vs. NE on 11/27

    They were his > 6 tackle games.

    Now, now.

    Samuel is probably a better slot CB than starter. I guarantee that you can't guarantee he starts.

    My prediction?

    Samuel: #1

    Scott #2

    Warfield #3

    Hobbs #4

    Gay #5

    Poteat #6

    We have fabulous depth in the secondary this year!
