Hawks Sign Larry Tripplett

by: Michael Steffes

According to Clare Farnsworth the Hawks have inked three players, including former Husky DT Larry Tripplett. The other two are LB Wesley Mallard and QB Dalton Bell.

I have long been a supporter of the Hawks taking a look at Tripplett. He made his name with the Colts and then signed a big free agent deal in Buffalo, never quite living up to expectations. This could be heavily related to the news that just came out about Marcus Tubbs. Tripplett was one of the more suitable free agents to provide insurance for the Tubbs situation.

Mallard is a former Oregon and NY Giants linebacker who will be a stretch to make the team. END
