Even if you have a roster building philosophy that allows for players who are somewhat rugged individuals...this goes way beyond that.
It's clear why he went undrafted...but it just screams to me like an example of Pioli ignoring a lot of red flags and keeping this guy around because he was one of his favorites.
I guess we will see. It is not like prior to killing his girlfriend he was acting like Dale Carter that we know of.
I will add that I have never been a Belcher fan and have been bitching for 2-3 years he shouldn't be the starting MLB. I thought he sucked personally so no huge loss on the football field.
