Fast forward to 2012......8 years older, a convicted felon and had not played in over a year. I just don't grasp how people on this board could possibly think this guy could be a key piece to a Winning team.
That's how I remember it. Plus, lots of drops on easy catches, offset by the occasional spectacular catch. A maddening underachiever.
Still, I kind of like having him around for depth for another year as long as it's cheap. Also, it seemed that he matured a bit after his prison time, and maybe some of that might rub off on our young guys.
