Plays strong safety. Best years were in '07 and '08 (8 and 5 INTs, respectively).

Question is whether he's intended as insurance or a wake up call for Jarrett.

All that said, nothing has made him more famous in BGN land than his glorious publicity shots (which is actually now his google profile) in which it appears as though he's either really confused or never ready for the picture to be taken...

I don't think we can expect him to be a consistant starter, but he can't be much worse than the greatest pre-season player of all time, Kurt Coleman. Adds good depth, if nothing else.

So...

We let Dawk go yet signed a 31 year old released Safety coming off of injury.

That's right, I'm still bitter wink.gif

As for the signing he shouldn't have a problem being better then Coleman and Allen which is all types of wrong when you think about it

Just more proof that we can hate/blame Banner.

Always liked Atogwe, be interesting to see if he starts on day 1, doubtful but I could see him taking over come mid-season.
