It's refreshing to see the change of culture here where we are starting to take care of our own a little more.

This isn't a charity case. Devonte knows what he's doing and should be a strong addition to the staff.

Very pleased for him and hope he enjoys the hell out of helping young men grow as players and as human beings.

Yay!
DeVonte now has played saftey (and fill-in corner, I think), spur, OLB, and MLB. He's a quiet guy who learns and performs. We'll see if he can teach also. I'm excited about Shaq Wilson feeding info and analysis to the coaches and assistants like DeVonte making it happen with players. Nothing improves players (or anybody else) like solid feedback and help using it to get better.

I'm sure he's deserving, but 10+ years ago even if he was deserving I'm not sure this would have happened so quickly.

A number of people have brought up would he be entitled to continue to be paid.
Unfortunately, like most NFL players, he would only get his guarantee.
His contract value is about 2.2 million over 4 years with only slightly more than
100k guaranteed. His salary last year was 405,000.......so the total he got paid
last year was around 510,000.

On the flip side, many players carry insurance policy's that pay out on career ending injuries.
