This guy has all the “tools” to be a legit NFL CB

Hopefully he fully recovers, mentally and physically

Yes!

Glad to hear he gets to put that detail behind him. He is now a professional football player.
For some people who go back a little bit...

Oh my darling Ballentine!

"Arms dangle down like ivy vines from his frame"

That's a new one in scout prose.

Didn’t realize he ran track at Washburn, 100m, ran second fastest 100m time in school history at Kansas Relays in 2015, finishing 5th in men’s 100m final:

STORY LINKS
KU RELAY RESULTS
LAWRENCE, Kan. – Washburn Ichabod Corey Ballentine finished fifth in the finals of the 100m dash at the Kansas Relays on Saturday afternoon at Rock Chalk Park.

After recording a time of 10.81 in the preliminaries on Friday, Ballentine recorded a wind-aided time of 10.49. The time was the fastest by any Ichabod and the second-fastest time in school history with the exception of Millage Gilbert's 10.40 hand-time mark set on April 11, 1980 at the William Jewell Invitational


Love to see him and Slayton compete in team sprints, both those guys can fly.

Not 2015.
Generaal question about signings....  
Bill L : 5/16/2019 3:34 pm : link
I thought that everyone was slotted nowadays. Why are all the signings stretched out? Is there flexiblity beyond salary; are the other negotiable points in contracts?

There is some "language" that they sometimes haggle over. Injury $$, if they are cut and signed by a new team, what $$ is owed. I THINK....

Our secondary will no longer be the butt of a joke around the league anymore.
