$60-70m in cap space and our second signing is a rotational LBer. Love it.

yours was better, this one is smelly.

and MLB likely. we'd probably need another MLB for obvious running downs? dunno, but he's a good player and we can keep up with the AD philosophy of bringing in SB MVPs, so that's something.

explains why we're going after Knightin/Dan Williams. pair them with Jelly, and you'll keep the big bodies of the MLB, who will be more of a chase and tackle player

Definitely a jack of all trades type. Would like a thumper now please. Rumor was we were talking to Perryman before and he could be really good for us. Maybe we'll move Sio to SLB and Mack to LEO?

Mack - Knighton/Williams - Jelly - Tuck

What do you think about Smith potentially starting at MLB?

I'm told the the #Raiders are actively pursuing Curtis Lofton who was released yesterday by the Saints


Mack to LEO?



Lofton would be the thumper type I was referring to. So maybe agarcia34 and I are onto something?



My thoughts on this signing and how the defense could be shaping up.

I seriously doubt that he will be a rotational guy here. He will start over the sorry MLB we have right now.

Good signing. Reminds me of the Roach signing. Rotational guy with a superior team who comes in and plays a more prominent role. I expect he'll play in different positions and certainly in nickel packages to cover.

Lofton burned out with ATL according to Falcons fans. High tackle numbers on a bad defense last year. Hopefully just depth.
