I like the move. Injuries will happen and it's good to know there's depth at that position.

If he can play as consistently well as he's managed to the last few years even in his age, he'll be a starter.

Define settled?

The top three of our depth chart is:

Champ - Is about to turn 34. For the '13 season he'll be 35...

Florence - Will be 32 this season.

Porter - 1 year deal


We still have GLARING issues for the future... and the future only past this season to be specific

Champ as the #1, obviously, Florence as the #2, Porter as the nickel where he thrived in New Orleans. Harris as a dime CB who can also play safety.

I'd bet that Bolden makes the team as a STs guy/5th corner type. Judie will have a good shot at the PS. Vaughn and Thompson are cut to the wind.

Not a bad six man set for 2012 and has enough high upside youth to give some long term hope. But we better be ready to make CB the BPA when our pick comes up in the very near future if we don't want to see serious problems arise.

Never siad it was settled for the next 3 years... I am talking about the signing today now settles it for the time being. I will try to post to your standards next time.

As often as opposing offense's dictate... has nothing to do with "Fox's defense"

A 4th saw a lot of time on the field against good QBs(patriots). They didn't do so well against them either. Can't have too many. I worry about getting through this season rather than worry about 2015.

Florence has size, speed and athleticism, but has lapses of judgment at critical times.

The guy scares me a bit, to be honest.

Consider that more and more teams love to go 3 and 4 wide. That Champ can almost never make it through a fully season now. Tracy Porter has never made it through a full season healthy. Drayton Florence is 31 years old.

I'd say a quality 4th corner will be very useful for this team.

Add that the guy we'll have as our 4th corner played both corner and safety in college, not to mention being a valuable special teams guy. I'd say Harris will have a pretty active role in 2012.

I like the move! It adds depth to the corner position that we really needed. We have Champ and Porter as the starters. Florence as the 3rd corner that can move Porter on the inside in nickel package. Also, use Chris and Bolden as the dime corner and special teamers.

Why? He's fast but he's not good at keeping receivers from catching the football. There are better options for KR/PR work on the team now.

Vaughn and Thompson are to me each half of a quality football player. Vaughn has the physical tools, Thompson has the mental tools. If you have guys like that actually seeing time for you on Sundays you need to think about how you upgrade their position.

After watching Gronk and Hernandez have their ways with us...CB depth was bound to be a priority.
