Another GM on Brodney Pool

New, comments

The Daily News asks a GM from another team about Brodney Pool

"Pool has had four concussions, so that's iffy. As a player, he's a good athlete. He plays with tunnel vision like a lot of players do. He's not real aware in pass coverage, but he's solid against the run. He's got talent. He doesn't have Rhodes' ball skills in coverage, but he'll come up and hit you. In a way, he's the opposite of Rhodes. If you had a guy with a concussion problem, you'd want it to be Rhodes because he doesn't hit anybody. Pool will hit you."

I don't think there's any question given his talent, the contract could turn into a bargain and could end up well worth the risk. Those concussions are still scary considering his style of play. I'm not sure I'm entirely comfortable with the depth at safety at this point. We're just one bad hit away from Eric Smith being the full time starter.
