It's unclear if he's been signed to the practice squad or active roster.

Looks like a backup slot guy. Injured last year? Still upgrade in experience.

It is funny but I remember people complaining about the Dumpster Diver Bills and other attacks when we picked up this unknown guard from the Steelers' waiver wire a couple of years ago ... now I will admit he was a 3rd round pick but still people were saying who is this Kraig guy whose first name isn't spelled right,  Well, Urbik has worked out for the Bills so until I see them on the field ... I'll keep my fingers crossed that we are in a new era with Whaley and the players we discover are treasures rather than rejects.

The issue is not that we "dumpster dive," but the fact that many of our breakout players come from such a source, and not our draft picks. In aggregate, our talent level would be far higher with better drafting combined with our solid knowledge of the waiver/UDFA wires.

I'm a fan of his movies... don't know much about his CB skills, though. Does he use scissors to defend WRs?

Jeeze -  they recognize the issue at CB and are trying to aggressively fix it by purging the non performers and turning over rocks to find talent.  

Why is this objectionable?

Wouldn't we want the CBs that got cut from teams with a good depth at CB? Vikings CBs are pretty thin back there too I thought.

Tim/Richard does not equal Brandon.
