Do we even need him? We have Jones (eventually), Clark, Okafor, Ogbah, Speaks and TK in addition to the wide bodies.

Daniels would be a DT for us. An upgrade could be had at DT more easily than DE at this point, IMO. Do we need him? No. But given the type of talent Spags had when he was most successful, more bodies on the DL are exactly the target. He'd probably push either Xavier Williams or Justin Hamilton off the roster. And help minimize Saunders snap count if he isn't ready to contribute day 1.

Ye, I like the signing of the veteran corner. He will be out the first 4 games, but could provide some good leadership for some of the younger guys.

I would not call it a great move, but I cannot argue with the price. 

Claiborne is probably older than you think. He used to be fast but he was never quick. That said, he's a savvy veteran and size doesn't get tired. At this point he is much better suited to the new DB scheme than the last one. That said, four games is a quarter of the season. At least he should be fresh in October.

New article on Claiborne from Craig Stout at Pride. As usual, Stout does an outstanding job.

The bottom line is that Claiborne has very good hand an ball skills and can matchup with big WR, eg Kelvin Benjamin. He is not so good on the speed routes and has a history of being penalty prone. He's a good man to have as the #2 guy.

I think he provides solid competition back there.

Is he allowed to practice now or does he have to wait till after week 4?

He can do everything until we actually hit week 1, from a technical standpoint. Preseason, practice, meetings, all a go until the league considers the regular season to have actually started.

Oh cool. He and the Honey Badger used to be teammates at lsu. Itll be cool to see them back out there again.

It would not surprise me if that were not a factor in him signing here vs somewhere else.
