A little stir on DJ

Obviously we need improvement in the run game. DJ is indeed one of the more complete LBs to come out in recent years. But if he has any forseeable weaknesses coming out it is his ability to handle runs that he has to take head on. No doubt he can give chase and make tackles, but has he proven that he can hold up against head on contact?

I\'ve read where he does tend to run around blocks rather than fight thru them.
Even so, I think he\'s the best LB this year and probably would have been last year too.
I hope more negative stuff comes out so he slips far enough for us to work a deal with someone. Is that selfish or what?

Nope, I am hoping for the same. The main contenders for snapping him up IMO would be the Browns with the addition of Romeo Crennel, who loves athletic LBs, and the Raiders if they are in fact switching to the 3-4. I think the Chiefs and Titans have more needs at CB and the Texans need to protect Carr to give him a chance to flourish.
