Also I think the team has a plan for him. It just seemed like they didn't want to risk trying to get him as an UDFA. Basically another way of saying, we really want this guy. I don't know if that means keeping 4 backs if he looks good or what but I have to think they aren't looking at him as practice squad material otherwise they wouldn't have bothered. They know he is likely to bolt to a team with less RB talent if they cut him.
Does he play on ST?
