I just listened to his WWL interview

Good news - Won't be much different than what he was already doing.

Bad news - He was't doing jack squat to start with.

You've said that a few times before. Do you include all the times you were wrong?

This seems like a dollar & cents move when you don't necessarily have the money or the cap space to do what you want, so you try to make-do with what you have. I don't really follow the money/contract aspects of a roster that closely & rely on the numbers guys of the board to make sense of it. FinSaint? .

I like it. Hicks, Bunkley, and Jordan with Tom Johnson sprinkled in up front.
I think this move just strengthens Will's ability to fill in when needed at DE or OLB when starters need a rest or are injured.

The LB position is THE position to watch this off-season.
Finally.

Joesam would be delighted.

We've got a bunch of fellas lined up for those spots too. Hard not to like.
