    Off of Arizona practice squad, a 4th round pick this year.

    I liked him as a draft prospect, interested in this signing for sure!

    Here is his draft profile:

    This is an excellent get.

    Only concern is a liver condition that I have no way to quantify personally.

    Interesting, but Arizona's offensive line is even worse than ours. Hard to be that excited.

    I've seen enough. Put him on the line instead of filo after the bye week.

    Texans signed him off their practice squad to our active roster.

    Developmental guy with upside who teams flagged for medical.

    Lance is flat out saying he missed on him. His dad is still on the staff in AZ.

    As bad as the Cardinals offensive line is, I'm not sure I'd be excited about a player who couldn't even get off the practice squad.

    It's a reasonable shot, that's all. You hope he turns into something. May/may not work out.

    I just thought he had a chance based on college tape. Not really a stretch zone guy, more power/gap and inside.

    I was high on filo thought it would take him 2-3 years to get it. he's regressed it seems. You never know. At one point, chris brown, post 2008 steve slaton and polk were on the roster, while arian foster was sitting in the practice squad.

    I just want to get better everyday, nimo. It's on me if i don't

    Even if not an immediate contributor, has some upside so like the pickup. Pretty much got a free 4th rounder.

    Sometimes coaches just don't see in a player what another coach does. We'll see i guess.

    My company looked at him for another team. There were/are some character concerns. Seems talented, so I hope we can develop him.

    Anything is better than what we got...

    I'm glad the o line has seemed to improve but it still a huge question mark hopefully he can make a difference and if not there is no risk.

    I watched a lot of Pitt football. I liked Bisnowaty better than him, but I thought both were decent prospects.

    It's a good signing. Worth a shot. Especially with how bad Clark, Sua Filo, and Giacomini are.
