... or he'll suffer the fate of Brooks Barnard. Or that DT from Syracuse..forget his name...French name began with a "G" Anyway, from a newspaper article linked from Reiss's Pieces: http://www.centredaily.com/mld/centredaily/sports/14243662.htm "The Patriots had me up in December -- they wanted to meet me -- and I was introduced to Pioli. He told me they wanted me right from the get-go but I decided to go with Dallas. They said they really liked me and I felt good about that. "And they're not sending me to Europe. A lot of times teams send a guy to Europe and then they tend to forget about him. They wanted me to come up here and work with the kickers, get our timing down. They said they were going to give me the best opportunity I can get. I bought what they were selling me."
