Its been no secret that I've wanted to sign this guy for weeks now, and still, he's not under contract....for some reason I don't understand.
But, looking at his bio on NFL.com, it seems that he would be the perfect replacement for Smooty.
5-10, 183.... been in the league for 5 years.
He had 6 INT's last year.
He's a vet, but still young....he's a solid #2 guy....and would give us at least a year, if not 2 or 3 before Springs most likely will be running out of fuel.
We sign him, then we have more options when it comes to the 1st round of the draft....and it also means that we aren't putting some rookie out on an island at DB..... or even worse. Drafting a guy with the #9, and making him the nickel DB in 2005.
We sign Dyson, then even the Titans are more strapped to take a DB because I keep hearing that they are waiting till the draft before deciding whether to try bringing him back. Tenn could still be forced into a WR situation, which Minny would end up taking anyways.The Vikes then I guess could end up taking a LB like Johnson because Williams and Edwards will be gone. Now we can decided between what DE's we like, or even if the 3rd WR on the chart is work looking at.
Either way, Andre Dyson = good idea.
