This kid looks like the real deal on tape. He played for Florida A&M and wore #47. His tenacity reminds me of his Dad.

Family favoritism is never a good thing for a business.

Yeah, but at this point, isn't the roster unlimited? Signing him and giving him a spot at training camp could be just an injection of youth to help push the players already slated for positioning.

Did you watch the video? It's not like he is a dud. I don't see this so much as favoritism as I do a kid who has talent and wants to take it to the next level. It's a business. If he doesn't make it here so be it. He may surprise everyone.

It's not like they signed him to hand him a roster spot. He's a camp body signing, who could possibly be a diamond-in-the-rough if he comes out and absolutely surprises everyone. I'd question the decision if they brought him in and gave him a spot on the 53 man roster without knowing anything about him, or making him earn it first. At this point though, he's just a warm body for camp once it starts.
