    Karl was working out for the Lions yesterday and clocked a 4.36 in the 40 but they decided not to sign him.

    Anyone seen him play?,Last played for the 49ers - He is 28 years old and 6'0" 195 pounds

    That workout was pure speed and we could use some speed back there.

    I don't think speed is our problem at CB. We need experience.

    That said, he's a four or five year vet and worth at least a look.

    Perhaps the Lions didnt sign him because his last name is Payme?

    Butler was in several games last year and I would not say he is inexperienced,it looks more like he is not very good at this point.

    I think taking a look at Paymah couldn't hurt,he would not cost a lot and could see him compete with Butler and Wilhite,not like those 2 would be hard to beat out.

    I have not watched many 49ers games since Montana and Young left so I have no idea what type of athlete he is

    I think if we were to get a CB it shouldn't be a guy that is not even proven. I can't really see us signing this guy and having him start over butler or Mccourty. If we are going to acquire a CB, I want one that is better than Butler or Wheatley.

    I don't see how you can say playing in 19 games total (including the playoff game last year) with only 2 getting starting snaps is experienced. Regardless of that argument, Butler is fast enough, so saying "we need speed back there" is oversimplifying the problem at best.

    If the Lions didn't want him I don't want him either.

    The pats will certainly evaluate all corners available. We need a player who can player if needed. At this point, we are not looking to replace Wilhite or even Wheatley. We are looking for a veteran who can be available for a few games to play in place of an injured player. Arrington now has that role. If one of the corners were nicked a bit, it would have been Arrington who got major reps. And, no I would cnsider Paymah as experienced. I would only consider him if Wheatley isn't coming back. Of course, if he is a top special teamer, we can always use him. There is plenty of flexibility at the bottom of the roster.

    He has great straight line speed but struggles mightily with change of direction.

    This is why BB's corners usually have decent 3 cone times and decent long speed. One without the other means a short NFL career for a CB.

    Paymah is absolutely terrible. He is always in position but will never, ever make a play on the ball. So glad the Vikings got rid of him.

    I remember this dude... came up the Broncos system with Darrent Williams and Dominique Foxworth. Was a bust in Denver.

    His size is nice, but experience aside he is not necessarily a better player than Butler, and has considerably less upside.

    I think it is more important to address poor linebacker play than secondary play at this point.

    If you look at the best corners in the league Asomugha, Revis, and Samuel even, none of them reached their peaks until their 3rd years. So when you if you want a CB with experience really need someone who's played in the league at least 3 years to know what you are getting into.

    Speed isn't an issue at our CB position. Being able to make a play on the ball is.

    Concur, sir.

    If the Patriots don't make a SINGLE substantial move at Corner, I expect that ~ Good Health Granted ~ our currently FRIGHTENING crew of CornerBacks will be The Envy of the League, one year, hence.

    Our Secondary has a BOATLOAD of Talent. All they need is Experience and Guidance.

    Time will provide the former, and they certainly came to the right place for the latter.
