  • 2008? That must be a typo. That means he hasn't played in 4 years.

  • A few years ago we signed an insurance agent off the street to play DB and it worked (albeit different FO). If this FO thinks this guy looked better than Ray Edwards then I believe them.

  • Schneider and Carroll found a dude in the UFL and signed him? Sounds like the recipe for a future Pro Bowler to me.

    All I can say to this is weve said WTF before only to be made believers with Carroll and Schneider.

  • Short week, will he be even active? If he is he has one purpose, beat up Ryan. I see another disrespected player that wants to leave one lasting mark on his career, at 33 his playing days are most likely done full season, but given a resurrection and a chance to be one of those players that come from nowhere to be a star in the playoffs and then a trivia question isn't a bad thing.

  • Heard he play for Bradley in 2008. 33 yrs old is surprising. They may as well have signed Raheem Brock. Hope the dude is in good shape.

    Scott Enyeart ‏@ScottEnyeart
    So, on the surface, the signing of Chukurah looks random, but in reality, it's extremely calculated.

    23m Scott Enyeart ‏@ScottEnyeart
    Chukurah played in Tampa in 07 and 08, for Monte Kiffin and....Seahawks DC Gus Bradley.

  • I won't even think about questioning PC and Schneider. They know a heck of a lot more about football than any of us. How many times have we said "who?" to a pick up, or a draft pick by these guys, that has panned out big time?? Nuff said

  • This may be as simple as "who is in game shape" or "who can speed rush". Obviously not a long-term solution, but if he can play the system on Sunday - all is well.

    Chukwurah was a special-teams standout, pass-rush specialist and is 250 pounds with less than 5 percent body fat.

  • I think it's because of the uniform he wore in the UFL, take some of that Blue and a little off the black and it's clsoe to our blue, they have the Green already

  • 5% body fat at 250lbs?

    That's some hard work he does in the gym. No surprise he's a personal trainer.

    Not like there was a ton of elite DE's knocking around. Maybin and Edwards are 'name' players but there's a reason they aren't in the league.

    Hes sure to take over Irvins old spot on the defense. We are gonna ask this guy to do nothing other than rush the passer. It makes sense in this situation

    basically a 250lb man with 5% body fat has same amount of muscle as 270lb man with 12% body fat.

  • He played for Gus Bradley, he's fast, he's mean-looking, he's got that body-fat thing going on, I smell a Bruce Irvin 2.0. I smell championship. Dunno why I love this move so much.

  • I think it's the deal where they are going to maximize his strength and minimize his weaknesses. Bradley sounds like he has familiarity with him. At least you can kind of see what they are thinking.

  • Probably a stupid question, but do you guys think Chukwurah will take Clem's spot? Or will Bruce take Clem's spot and Chukwurah take Irvin's spot as more of a situational guy?
