    I actually love this signing tbh. If we couldn’t get Iloka i was hoping for Berry & THEN ET(in terms of preference of player). From what i’ve read he’s very much a Strong rather than Free Safety so i wonder how Richard will use him?

    Good news! And if they get Quinn, they can go BPA, at any position, at the Draft.
