Laurinaitus is only 29 years old so he should have plenty of gas left in the tank. Its just that he was never a really fast player to start with.

I'm hoping his 2015 slump was related to the elbow injury he played with all season.
Are you saying Stephone is now a bust?

You got that out of my comment? Of course he's not a bust. Why would you think that? He's gonna be a star for us.

Dannell Ellerbe and Robertson will compete for the starting position @ WILB.

If you go back and look at Craig even in his limited starts up in Cleveland, he is the real deal in coverage. Maybe we get off the field on 3rd downs more often this season.

+1. SA is a excellent young player. With more help around him at the LB position, he will be a force.

I think he was a solid pick last year .

Agreed.

Anthony can play SAM while Laurinaitus starts in the middle, with Ellerbe and Robertson at the WLB.

We also have enough talent to mix in a ton of 3-4 with Kikaha, Tull, and likely a young draft pick at the JACK.

The key with signing JL is being the QB for the defense. The best part is that he will already know the Allen defense because he came from the Greg Williams system which is where Allen learned most of his tricks.

This should be a natural fit. Additionally, he was just cut and might feel he has something to prove. If he comes out hungry he'll be a pro bowl type MLB for us.

Most rewarding than risky in my opinion.

Obviously a genius on offense, but still kinda floundering on defense.
Nailed it!
