Kinda intersting, I assume he was signed for backup purposes.

if he stays healthy and makes the squad i believe it allows us to cut cooper from our crowded safety situation, both are nothing more than special teamers but i give the slight edge to kacyvenski.

Yah I see no reason why we can't have both of those players on our roster...

Cooper was our special teams captain. Why would we cut him?

I would have to give that title to Gary Stills.

because if kept he may prevent keeping some of the younger guys on the roster at the saftey position that can actually play S, Cooper is not good in coverage and is an adequate run stuffer, i know a lot of people like the guy but keeping him on the roster is dead weight. Kacyvenski actually could provide some depth where we don't have much behind our starters, he plays all 3 LB spots, so he could contribute more. I'd much rather have Frampton Bing and Ward on the roster at S than Cooper, and in case you havent noticed our special teams has not excelled to say the least, it could use a change up.

i think he def. gets the boot now, we are trying to build a new image and keeping him on board with the likes of Bing, Frampton and Ward waiting in the wings and with the signing of a special teams ace in Kacyvenski would just be a horrible decision.

special teamer + depth at LB, Id say solid pickup....
