Mangoes Doing A Little Detective Work

     I'm a supporter of Patrick Peterson, but i highly doubt that he'll get drafted #1 overall. I believe that Fairley will be the choice, and I'm totally cool with that. The only problem is that there will be a hole at one of the corner back positions. This is where i think Carolina will strike in free agency. I went over the list of free agent cb's, and a couple guys who caught my eye were Brandon Carr from KC, and Johnathan Joseph from Cincy.

     I went over to Arrowhead Pride, and asked around to see what everyone thought of Carr. They said that he's a 24 year old 5th round pick out of Grand Valley State, who's a key part of their secondary. He's improved every year since he entered the league. Many people over there think that he's one of the best #2 corners in the league. He has good size ( 6'0 207 lbs.), but it's unlikely that he tests free agency. All the Chiefs fans told me that he's pretty much a lock to get resigned. There goes my first option...

     Johnathan Joseph from Cincy is one of the better corners in the league. He has decent size(5'11 190 lbs), and he's still relatively young(26 years old). I went over to the Cincy Jungle, and asked around. I was very surprised at the replies that i got. I thought that forsure he'll get tagged, but i thought wrong. I was told that the Bengals are very unlikely to use the tag on Joseph, because they don't think he's worth top 5 corner back money, which is something around 14 million $. They also believe that he won't be resigned, because he's been too injury prone throughout his career, and because Mike Brown is their owner. Brown thinks that the Bengals can get by next year with Adam "Pacman" Jones and Leon Hall at cornerback. Joseph has only started all 16 games once in 2009 since joining the league in 2006. He's also prone to missing a few tackles here and there. When he's healthy, they said that he can shut down almost anyone. Joseph seems to always be nicked up, missing a couple games every year, but he's to talented to pass up. Plus he's a local boy (S.C). If he's available, Carolina should definitely pull the trigger. My only concerns about him are that he's prone to missing a couple games every year, and he will probably want a big contract. The pros still outweigh the cons. Wouldn't it be worth paying the guy, to see Gamble and Joseph shut down receivers left and right?
