yes, he is. We basically just replaced Parrish Cox with....Parrish Cox.
Hopefully we still sign Thurmond.
This is exactly it. He's additional camp competition and depth if he makes the team.
On the good side, what nobody has mentioned, is that this signing might be further proof we'll be going to a more press look next year. We'll have Brock, Culliver, Wright and Cook to start things of. All physical and aggressive CB's up at the LOS. This is contrary to Brown/Rogers where much off-coverage was employed. It also means that Thurmond still may be an option here as they look to a nickle/dime/slot CB to compete with Morris. And naturally, it may trigger a bigger, more physical CB with our #1 draft pick as well.
PS: I think Baalke has seen enough of our little CB's getting smoked over the years in big games. Plus, if we play more (successful) press, it's closer to what Bethea has played @ SS and will free up Reid, Seattle-style.
