Wow. I cannot belive of all people this guy gets a free agent contract?! Stephenson is the worst person to play the CB position. Seeing this guy get burned so much i figured he'd be the last person chosen by an NFL team. I guess it goes to show how desperate the skins are to fill spots for their scout team.

He might just need to be coached by NFL coaches to show what he has. I hope he does make it cause I also did not see much in him. Good luck to ALL MINERS who are getting a chance.

have you played a lick of football past second string high school punter? Stephenson was one of the best "athletes" utep had... It's not his fault the front 7 blew! Utep's db's were not responsible for any of their woes... It was all those 220 lbs lineman and 200 linebackers. Stephenson jas the size and speed for the next level and played as well as anyone could in the position the team put him and the other db's in.
