ILB was already a need anyways, Loftons solid but we need people who can cover and tackle.

We won't get rid of him. It would take a lot like a first rounder

Re: Lofton being shopped?

Yeah but now we need 2 ILB

Im beginning to wonder if we see the team go back to 4-3 in the next couple of years.

We dont have a dominant NT,dont have any great ILB.
I could see Allen pushing a 4-3 similar to the Broncos.

Vic Beasley could be the Von Miller to that defense. If he falls. We're in a weird spot in the draft. We basically get the top 10s leftover pick. Whether that be Beasley, Fowler, Shelton, Shane Ray, etc. I wonder what we'll get for Lofton. Hopefully a 2nd round pick, at least he had a good year.

Seeing Shane Ray falling to us in more and more mocks. Not working out has vaulted others above him

Re: Lofton being shopped?

Somethings going on as the team really dont want to touch Brees deal. Strange they are still sitting on converting other bonus's. It ridiculous that tge league hasn't said a word about Junior as the team needs to know as it effects his deal.

An immediate starter doesn't mean he is better or production from the rookie...we suck at drafting LBs...can you imagine what the run defense will look like if we pull this off and the replacement is worse? OMG!!!

We havent drafted a LB higher than the 3rd round. The good ones are usually found between 1-3. Got try sometime, why not now? Maybe we'll get the next Dome Patrol.
