Solid depth pickup with a lot of experience at slot and outside.

He is super versatile. He can play CB(outside and slot, but better in slot). He can play safety. He can play Nickel corner. He can also return kicks.

Happy they got another vet CB. With Trice on IR and Pierre as the 4th CB, I had a feeling they would look at another CB after cuts.

I wonder if they cut Pierre or Riley?

Also wondering about that rumored trade deal for the 2nd punter.

Pierre is where i'd put my money. he has had years to refine his game and doesn't seem to have improved. au revoir Pierre, Steelers reportedly signing CB Desmond King 2000130356
now we have to ask ourselves why the Kang cant seem to stick with a team despite being an above average CB. Steelers reportedly signing CB Desmond King 190127080

Yeah I've read that comparison as well. King is versatile in that same way, but also offers special teams flexibility as well.

Yeah watching his tape he looks like a physical Sutton and more versatile (Played inside outside and returned punts and kicks and can hit.

The late additions (Golden, Kwon, King) all can hit.

He's also a decent blitzer, I believe he had something like 4-5 sacks in his rookie season. So I kind of wonder if they're envisioning a Mike Hilton-esque roll for him.

I feel like this pass rush is going be downright nasty.

I read that, too. I read that Houston played him on the outside the last 2 years. If he plays inside in a "Hilton" role, he may thrive and yes the pass rush will be nasty.

I think they can utilize the 3 OLB set with Golden or Little Herbig or even Leal as the third OLB. Then add in King as another pass rusher, I don't think any team could stop that.
