We did get him for a 2 year contract. Is he going to compete for a LB spot or mainly be used on special teams. Not too much is being said about him, he's not a bad player.

painnotpleasure said:Donnie Spragan is a very smart player and has pretty good size at 6'3" 239lbs (Keep in mind Ray Lewis is 6'1" 245lbs). I think we picked up Spragan for a good reason, Saban obviously liked what he saw in him and loved his size and awareness of the game. I expect him to get a decent amount of playing time this year possibliy substituting in Seau and Crowder and maybe even starting a couple games.

that's a little harsh. Morlon was a very good footballer for us.Buddwalk said:He'll do a little bit better than morlon...but hes not gonna make lots of plays, but he'll make solid efficient tackles
I agree that the jury is still out on him, but from all the things I've heard about him, he's a SMART football player. The best thing I look is his contract is CHEAP. We signed him to a 2 year deal for 2 million. It really does sound like we're getting a bargain, I don't expect a lot out of him... I just think he's a good fit to the team and a good asset considering we're only paying him 1 million a year.OrangeCrush said:And I'm the size of Zach Thomas...so whats that going to prove. My point is, watching Spragen through out his career, he has done ABSOLUTLEY nothing to be considered a good player. And done nothing to be considered a bad player. He is as vanilla as it comes. He won't make a crushing hit, or INT, or force a fumbol. He will just cover his man, tackle if its in his box and thats it. Nothing great, nothing bad. Just AVERAGE. A cheaper Morlon, thats it.
