Looks like a possibility for our vacant FS position and Frazier wants him. High character guy who has had a produtive carear. Sacks, picks and tackles. I didn't know who he was but he is now looking like one of the better Safetys in FA.

Kenny Phillips, Reggie Smith and Rogers-Comartie.
Depending on which page you look at Comartie is above Phillips or Phillips is above Comartie.
Regardless I wouldn't classify them as reaches.
I would be very happy with a roster of
