...yesterday, per KFFL.

Was with the Titans last season, didn't play a down due to injury.
Anybody know anything about him?

What I know is our coaches and front office must be really disappointed with our DB because they are running open additions. Doesn't bode well for the defense this season.

Had 21 passes defensed back in 2007, and also played well in 2008 in spite of injuries.

Past couple of years haven't been so good for him; got cut by the Brownies in 2009. Brought in by the Titans last year to compete for the starting CB slot opposite Cortland Finnegan; suffered a season-ending injury before the season ever started.

Arn't there better options than Macho, Hood and these other bums?
I would think a decent cb would still be left in free agency that hasn't signed anywhere yet?
Anybody got anyone???

It might be a good idea to wait until rosters have to be cut to see what DB's become available??

From memory he's a good tackler & he's been in the top 3 CB's on every team he's played on (again, from memory).

Sounds to me like he could find a role if he plays his cards right.

Macho, Hood & Dockery signed in the last 3 days. Realistically, they probably won't all make the team.

BUT...

Hood could be competing with Gay for the #3 CB spot...and could win it.

Macho could be against Will Allen for the back-up FS spot....and could win it.

Dockery is probably pitted against Cortez Allen & Crezdon Butler for the last CB spot- neither Allen or Butler have shown much yet.

Ike Taylor
Bryant McFadden
Rod Hood
Keenan Lewis
Curtis Brown
Allen/Butler/Dockery...

Not a bad CB mix really.

Polamalu
Clark
Mundy
Macho Harris...

Liking that group better than last years.

To be fair, Gay expected Limas to drop that...easy mistake to make really...

I hope Macho Harris can bring something to the table and be a factor -just based on his name.

Dang! We cut that guy with the no look at the ball/right forearm technique! Those skills just can't be taught!

I believe he was actually trying to replicate Antonio Brown's helmet-catch from last season, but Ben is too used to throwing low to the itsy-bitsy WR's & couldn't quite get Limas in the noggin.
