Yeah, this is exactly what I was thinking as well.

If his knees are now fully repaired and fully rehabilitated he won't have any problems being the best coverage man out of the whole LB corps.

Also, he is a really smart guy, so I don't think the scheme will be as big of an obstacle for him as has been portrayed here. On the other hand, not having had full contact for such a long time will undoubtedly challenge him at game time.

Thats a legit concern. There is a huge difference between being in shape, and being in football shape. That difference usually translates to pulled muscles.

I smell a pulled groin. Uhh wait a sec, that doesn't sound right does it?

I guess that depends on who is doing the "pulling."

He can't do any worse than the guys who HAVE experience with the new defense.

Pulled or no, count me out on the groin-sniffing ...

I'm glad to see Vilma back, but keeping my expectations realistic. It's been a long time since he's played in a game. Still, a little veteran leadership on the defensive side of the ball can only be an improvement.
