I'm in - especially if it lowers the chances of Nakamura seeing the field on defense

I just read stat wise he was the 5th best safety in the league last year

This got my imagination going. If we do get him, who loses out? Besides Nakanotgotit? How many S do we keep? 3 CB and 5 S? I know Rivera loves having S that can do more than run support.

I can see 3S, 2CB, 2LB, and 4DL sets. Pressure and cover. It may be unorthodox, but I think I can live with that. Call it the Rivera cover 3.

yep. they guy knows his job and he's exactly what we need to help bring some level of respectability to this secondary.

 

it's also a very positive sign that gettleman ain't done fixing stuff. he knows where we're weak, and SS was one of those spots. he instantly becomes the starter. i don't see any guy on the roster taking that role over him.

he will be our starter for sure if this deal is done. everything i've read about him was he was extremely football savvy, heady player.

The Cam effect in full bloom. A top rated player actually thinking about coming here. The players throughout the league see what we are doing. Even if the media has no clue.

I don't see this as one of those 1 year deals. If we get him, it probably will be a multi year deal. I can live with that.

we already run most of our defense out of the nickel. we typically have 5 DBs on the field.

I think Mikell would be a nice addition.

 

But, calling a player who is unsigned in July a "top rated player" is a bit of a stretch

i doubt a multi-year deal because of his age. He was last in the pro-bowl in 2010. Was cut by the rams because of his 9 million cap hit.

Yeah, that's a huge upgrade and could solidify the D.
