So the Vikings sign George Iloka and we sign a PE teacher? Nice.
I don't believe either of the recent signings at safety will make the 53.
If Woods hamstring precludes him from being able to play Week 1, who is the 3rd safety? You surely aren't suggesting they will head to Carolina to play with only two active safeties on the roster, right?
The play at the end of the year was also a bit skewed because we faced some terrible offenses like the Giants and then an Eagles team that benched their starters.
This was, at best, a mediocre secondary last year. They provided some hope with Richard coming in, Jones moving to CB and the belief Awuzie would develop. They took a risk at S bringing in no one in and thinking they could survive with Heath, Frazier and Woods, three guys who, frankly, are probably limited safeties.
And in the face of their starting FS going down with an injury that can linger long beyond what is the recovery time, they pass up a safety, who while not ideal, still is probably a lateral move that is insurance against a long problem with Woods.
Instead, they pull a guy who hasn't played football in a year, I guess, because he played with Richard in Seattle.
I am not sure how people can look at this situation and say, you know what, the Cowboys really handled this thing well.
