Phin Snap: Brodney Pool (FS)

I have contributed several fanposts to the community and thought "Phin Snap" could be a "snapshot" that's quick and easy.  Maybe it works and maybe it doesn't, but I thought it'd at least stand out enough to make a point on players that are flying under the radar.

 

Phin Snap: Brodney Pool (FS)

 

On NFL.com they were going over several free agents and this player, Brodney Pool, came across as a curious option for the Dolphins depth.

 

The Main aspects that stood out were:

1.) He is an RFA but has no tag designated on him so he's free to pick up.

2.)  His Age, he's 25 has many years left to play that position.

3.) He has gotten better "Stat-wise" every season - See Brodney Pool's Stats

4.) Last season he had 11 passes defended and 4 INT & averages 50-60 tackles per season and could provide some depth since we cut Gibril Wilson.

Phin Snap Wrap:

In closing I like the fact that he's a young guy but is showing an increase in stats year to year.  He could provide some depth and might have a chance to shine because the Dolphins are the type of organization that will give every player a chance.  Also given that Mike Nolan now runs the D, he might have some skills that Nolan likes.

 

Finally I leave you with the only play that I could find on the internet of him:

Brodney Pool Picks Off Kyle Boller 100 Yards Return Vs Ravens 2007 (via ClevelandBrowns2009)

 

*UPDATE*

It seems like Brodney has concussion issues which is a shame considering he's only 25 and players like Shannon Sharp are in their 30's and still in the league.  Maybe he can turn things around???? Maybe he's still an option...

 

*UPDATE*

It looks like the JETS listened to my advice and decided to pickup Brodney Pool.  I hope I wasn't right in his abilities because the last thing I want to see if Brodney Pool picking off Henne and returning it for TD.  Good to see our opponents bringing in players to shore up their teams, looks like we will have to keep our fingers crossed for a "A+ draft grade" or we will be doomed to repeat ourselves this next year.
