7/29/2011: Signed a four-year, $21 million contract. The deal contains $9.8 million in guarantees.

Apparently, this is big news. A lot of Dolphins fans are saying he is a huge upgrade over Crowder (who was cut earlier), but I have no idea. Any input Chargers fans? I hear he is the same type of player as Dansby, but Dansby is a bit more talented.

All I know is Miami is making moves and making a splash...2 top UDFAs (Grigsby/Devlin), Reggie Bush, Kevin Burnett, Matt Moore...and apparently they are/were talking to Manny Lawson and Braylon Edwards.

Parcells/Ireland drafted him in Dallas. He's a converted safety. Which explains why he excels in coverage. He's also a good blitzer.

The knock on him is that he's made of glass. Couldn't seem to stay healthy in Dallas. When healthy though, he's a pretty damn good player.
