When he did play he started for a team that was a little better than the Chiefs.

He did get cut when they signed the guy he took out for awhile, and we had success last time we got a FB from Dallas. I heard he fits Gaileys mold at FB better too. Signing him is more of a positive than it is a negative I think.

I don't think it's a negative, just seemed interesting. I'm guessing they are letting 'ol Boomer know that he's gotta beat somebody out for that FB slot this year...just seems ironic that he has to beat out ANOTHER LB convert...you'd think we'd go out and get a...Oh, I don't know...actual fullback?!?
