Still think moving Anthony around to get Laurinitus on the field is a big mistake.

Anthony's the first linebacker in years to even get an interception for us and he really started making strides.

He should be starting at MLB and learn on the job.

PFF Lowest graded defensive players
• Brandon Browner (-41.1)
• Bobby Richardson (-16.2)
• Stephone Anthony (-14.3)
I think we may have thrown too much at Anthony too fast. A veteran signal caller on defense may help his development. Its obvious he has the skills to be a stud LB in this league. Perhaps he still has a lot to learn before he becomes the man.

Even Sam Mills got to learn in the USFL...

It'd probably kill big money college football, but the NFL could use a minor league system, and not named the CFL...

The NFL Europe could have been really good if it would have ben run the right way. But I would believe that the more viable option would be 8-10 smaller market teams in the US.

NFL.com has given us a D+ for signing him.

Based on an injury plagued 2015 I can't disagree. If he returns to his pre 2015 form I'd give it an A.

Feast or famine signing?

If it is for 3 years then it is a risky move and has a good chance of turning into a D signing.

Regardless, I like the signing and was all for it when he was released by the Rams.
