Echols did a good job as a primary gunner last season but didn't play much on defense, although he is capable of contributing as a nickel, dime or boundary corner.
Ironically, this could actually help with the roster crunch in final cuts. Echols being on the suspended list for a week could free up a spot for someone who could later be stashed on injured reserve or something.
