This guy is worth signing if you don't have to give up too much. Having said that it is clear here in SD that his play has dropped off slightly when the pass rush of the Chargers went down. Like when Merriman got hurt. He was less effective as any DB would be with a less effective pass rush.
Corner that doesnt tackle? hows that worth signing? especially on this team theyre gung-ho about stopping the run.
He tackles ok. You can't get caught up in 1 GIF play... His greatest value is in coverage where he is as good or better than any CB we have. Nate Clements is a real good tackler but has struggled some in coverage as of late. Our tackling machine is at LB. It would help if our CB's could cover better.
