    Anyone know much about this guy? other then he was a 2nd round pick by the Giants in 2011?

    I know he has gone through 2 teams now but could he be a PS player with potential?

    He hasn't played much, but physically he looks good. Height: 6-2 Weight: 312 Age: 24
    Probably does not know what he is doing. I would rather see a wiley old veteran, but I don't know who.

    Damn, this is like trying to upgrade your FF team off the waiver wire. Slim pickins'

    He was in the same draft class as Paea IIRC and was thought of highly in terms of physical attributes but there were major character/motivation concerns. Looks like another "talented" bust but worth a look at.

    One of Butch's bad boys at UNC. I'd bring him in for a tryout, but at some point talent without motivation becomes less of a concern and just not having "it" becomes more of a reality.

    Too bad both the Giants and the Dolphins run a 4-3 Base Defense, otherwise you could hope that it is scheme.

    It wouldn't hurt to take a closer look at him. Bring him in, bring him in, bring him in...
    Dallas released Ratliff too, but that wouldn't be good at all. He's as used up as some of our guys.
