    Unfortunately only camp fodder, but god it would be SWEET if he could somehow turn into a slightly above average corner since he's a former jet :rolleyes:

    Before you chuck him up to "camp fodder", go take a look at the gang green forum about him. Almost everyone on there said they're pissed he's gone. He's no game changer but he's a damn hard worker, never hurts to have a guy like that.

    When the Jet fanbase doesn't like the loss...it's a good sign. Looks like he's a ST gunner and hard worker. Good CB depth signing and will push for a slot on the final 53.

    Being better than the other teams from 1-53 is the goal of assembling the roster......

    This is gonna be an extraordinary TC !!!!!!!!! :rocker:

    The more bodies we have competing for spots on defense the better IMO.

    Based on comments at JI, Cole was a gunner on the punt coverage unit and a dime defensive back. Sergio Brown may be out of job when the roster is cut down to 53. The New England Patriots defense may now have five viable cornerbacks on the roster:

    McCourty
    Dowling
    Arrington
    Moore
    Cole

    If that's the case, does anyone see BB drafting a CB in round one or two?

    What are the positions of need now?


    Drafting BPA looks like a plan and please BB....DON'T TRADE DOWN !!!

    A trade UP would be a great plan to grab 2 solid picks in round one....:rocker:

    Now, this is really good news. Cole is a replacement for Sergio Brown. There is still room for an addition corner. 5 corners and 5 safeties is not unusual for us. The 5th "safety" is often a special teamer who we don't want to see of defense. We can carry 6 corners and 4 safeties, with Cole as the special teamer.

    That just may depend on Ras-I Dowling's health.

    You're right. After reading Ganggreen, he seems to be a top ST gunner, and atleast he wouldn't be a nightmare to put on the field like Brown.

    Cole can replace Brown/Williams, cya Sergio!

    In other words, no change since before free agency started. It just means BB has more flexibility to go BPA and not reach.

    Well.... I'd say that they've taken TE off the list at the OL situation may be fixed for now but, other than that, I'm with you.

    If Castillo signs here, I think that's another need off the list, between he and Fanene.

    This kid has worked hard to get to where he is ... I bet he's here at least 5-6 years as a ST and sometimes DB. Our punting team needs a boost for sure - was one of the things that hurt us in the Super Bowl.

    Couple reasons I like the move...

    1. The guy can tackle.

    2. Blue collar player that knows what hard work is and has been determined.

    3. Knows the enemy (Jets, Bills, Fins)

    4. Sat behind two above average corners in Revis and Cromartie.

    Not saying this guy is a starter or Pro Bowler, but I am saying this guy is going to contribute whether in practice or during a game. And in a game is inches, one play is all it takes to going from champion to chump.

    If this signing means the end for undertalented, try-hard stiffs Mal Williams, Sergio Brown & Ross Ventrone,
    then I like it.
