    Unprecedented. I would take a shot but I have a feeling he won't come cheap. I wonder if he has to follow the rookie contract rules?

    No, since the article clearly says he is not eligible for the Supplemental Draft. He is an Unrestricted Free Agent.

    he is a free agent. not a draftable player. we could sign him but i don't see it with weems on the team. you would have to keep him on the roster and i'm not sure we will carry 5 ot's. i don't remember us carrying 5 ot's very often over the years

    Yes, according to the article. Any bonus would be limited due to the rookie pool; however, they can guarantee his contract like they did with Leary. They did manage to keep Leary on the Practice Squad for awhile.

    Never thought I'd see the day where a player from where I went to undergrad was being discussed on this forum. o_O

    Of course when I went there, they were downright pitiful after having just made the jump to D1.

    He's big and athletic according to the article...if we were to give him a shot and he showed that he could play in the big leagues why not. We bring in camp fodder every year why not bring in some with potential lol.

    I am curious to see what happens with this guy. The article seems to hype him up as a highly draftable prospect. In what hypothetical round, I have no idea. He's either talented and will get snapped up by some team that gives him a nice bonus or guarantees, or it was just a reporter's spin and we'll never hear about him again. If he's for real, I'd like to see us get him.

    It says he's worth a 5th or 6th rd pick, which means he's a little bit of a project. But he can be serviceable by 2014, and maybe a starter by 2015 if coached up properly. I'd say give it a shot if he would be willing to sign with Dallas
