One year deal. Good in run support. Not a bad signing to give someone with experience.

I hope he can come in and push for a starting job.

He's been a starter since his rookie year in St. Louis. He was a Round 2 pick. The last 2 years he had injury problems Groin in 2005 and fractured forearm in 2006. Those shouldn't be long term problems though. If he is healthy, he is a good corner that fits the Cover 2. I thin we'll still go after a corner in the draft though since Fisher is only a 1 year deal. If he plays well he could be gone next year. Has anyone heard anything on Keith Smith? He is a RFA? Did we offer him any compensation? If someone wants him, we might get a third round pick for him, but I doubt anyone will want him?

Good pick up. Love these short term contracts. Not a lot of salary being committed.

Guys, Fisher is not good at all. He's horrible in run support and is horrible in bump n' run coverage and doesn't stay with his guy. He could be a good nickel when playing zone but other than that he's terrible.

We'll see it this year.

Hmmm Run support might be an issue.....bump and run not so much. Cover two is more like bump and hand off.

Good signing, adding depth is very important.

Love it, should be able to help out our younger guys with the finer points of playing CB in the NFL

He can't even play Cornerback in the NFL, let alone teaching guys. Dre Bly was the right guy to teach them.

No he wasnt, he was a bad fit in the cover 2, he wasnt happy here and was becoming a major distraction. Fisher is a decent corner who will only strengthen our secondary.

Good move, especially since Harper signed w/ Tennessee.

WIll he be playing along side Bryant then? Or will he be or nickle back? Im not really sold on our secondary but we're getting there. Hopefully we draft a couple of guys (cornerback and safety) to improve it a little bit.
