Cool Say this one three times fast!

So has anyone been paying attention to this DE on the Packers named Kabeer Gbaja-Biamila? The media is starting to take notice of this young Nigerian's amazing speed, quickness, and ambition skills on defense. He is on pace to break the NFL's sack record. Thoughts on him? He's one HECK of a player, talk about a steal.

Yes, he played last year - and he was a free agent - but no one signed him! They knew he had potential, but he hadn't done anything yet. Well, the Packers sure pulled a great player here - a steal, if I ever saw one!
