    good to see the late picks make the team. I guess andrews is officially our kick returner then.

  2. Stevenson didn’t actually sign the other day. He agreed to the parameters of a deal with the team. It’s a generally accepted event in the media that the team will announce when the deal has been signed, but the agreement can be reached days, even a week or more before.

    According to a well hidden blurb from the official team site, (They’re trying to make you read their stuff) Stevenson actually signed today.

    It’s kind of nebulous because it’s a new writer for the team site, so you don’t really know if it’s a legit press release or just a commentary by some young web writer.

    In either event, that’s two players under wraps, with 8 more to go.

    I actually just noticed that today. I was out of town and did quick research and didn’t fully investigate, and on the drive home I thought about what you just said.

    On other notes I believe both of them are capable of becoming solid players. Although I don’t see star status in either.
