The D line just got MUCH better... A DE who can collapse the pocket is going to increase numbers for Orakpo and Kerrigan as well...

Finally the team makes a FA pickup I like. Hatcher is an elite defensive lineman and he's going to make our line much better. We still have a long ways to go, but the D-Line is much stronger now.

4 years 27.5 million is the official contract amount, but do we know what our real commitment is to him? Is this a deal we can get out of next year or after year two without major cap implications? Hatcher will be 32 at the start of next season and is coming off of a career year.

Well I kind of felt like this was gonna happen. I didnt expect us to sign him to a four year contract. I thought a one year contract at Hatchers age. Still I am happy about this. Woo hoo!
Lets hope he can give us a season like last year.
It feels especially good knowing he was a puke who played well last year. Yet we snatched him from our most hated rival.

After letting Ware go. You would think that the pukes would try to secure some kind of defensive players. Just goes to show that Jerrah has no clue what hes doing. LOL!

Jerrah may not have a clue, but he definitely has no cap space. The Cowboys are in big trouble this year.

Lets see...
he is over 30
Has had one good season
That good season was just before he became a free agent
His best two games last season came against us

Seems like we've seen this movie before!

Well lets see all the details of the deal before we criticise too much, but no matter how you look at it that's a major upgrade along the line.

I'm pretty sure, having seen the nature of the deals so far, that we wont be too committed to him beyond two years.

The only two cowgirls I'd like to see in the B&G were Sean Lee and Hatcher, so I'm pretty happy with the deal.

If we can get Clark then we'll have added Hatcher, Porter and Clark - which I think will make a difference for this D for sure.

Guess we'll see with Hatcher. I think people are making a little too much noise about his age though. The guy is going to turn 32 this fall, not 38. He's not one of those old vets who has been repeatedly injured, coming off major knee surgery or whatever. And he's not playing WR where he's not as fast as he was at 26.

People forget that London came in around the same age.

I think you gotta look at the details on the "one good season" thing a little bit. He had more sacks last year, but a lot of that was because they moved from a 3-4 to a 4-3. His role was different, asked to do different things. He had more tackles in 2012.

i don't think he was a starter until 2011, so the guy has less wear and tear on him than a typical 32 year old. Also, since he was a late starter you'd expect to see him making big jumps the first few years. Not sure he'll duplicate 11 sacks, but we need QB pressure and he brings that from the interior in 4 down linemen sets. Everyone on the back-end will get a little better because of this signing.
