Newly signed undrafted free agent CB Tony Carter played ahead of Alphonso Smith in nickel packages last week. Smith did make it onto the field as the cover man on Chaz Schilens game-winning touchdown. It's been a lost season for the second-rounder, which can't make the Broncos feel too good about giving up their 2010 first-round pick to draft him.
Thanks, Ruskell and Denver. Considering our team's horrid 2009 season, reading this made me feel very, very happy. :) Let's hope this pick turns out to be a special player that helps us build toward our future, or facilitates additional trading in Seattle's 2010 draft. I'm grateful to our former GM for making this deal.
