  1. How can he sign a 1 year deal. I though the minim contract was 2 years

  2. I never was a fan of his but he is a Canadian and I know Wally was bent on a Canadian safety until last year (or the year before??). Back in the day when Andrew Harris was playing for the Raiders and practising with us during the week, Wally tried to make him a safety from what I read !!!

    Lose Yell and bring back Muamba? Unless for ratio reasons or depth he has experience and was coached under Washingtons systems so he will fit in quickly

    riderfan: I think the one year, plus option is entry level contract. Others can sign for one year. I think Muamba is just a stop gap addition, not a long term addition.

  5. Muamba was NOT very good when he played for the Lions the first time around. Only had three interceptions in 36 games played and no sacks. Hopefully he plays better the second time around. So far not very inspired by the job Hervey is doing as GM, but we will see and judge after the period of Free Agency has ended.
