Former NFL head coach Dennis Green, most famous (probably) for insisting that the Chicago Bears are who his Arizona Cardinals thought they were (!) in 2006, now serves as the head coach of the Sacramento Mountain Lions had nothing but good things to say about safety Andrew Sendejo, who was promoted to the Dallas Cowboys active roster, less than a week after being signed to the practice squad.
“He's a tremendous player,'' Green told the Sacramento Bee, via the Dallas Morning News. “He really gets around. He's very active. From what we saw of him when we looked at him at Rice, he can make a lot of plays.”
According to Green, Sendejo is exactly what the Cowboys have been without for several years now: a defensive back with hands gifted enough to come down with the ball. Dallas is tied with nine other teams for 17th in the NFL with respect to interceptions, with 9.
“He's a ball hawk. When the ball's out there, he always seems to be one of those guys who comes up with it, either an interception or a fumble recovery or some timely tackles.”
