I just want to know if LB coach Mike Nolan wants this guy and thinks about him.

If he wanted him him then I'd be ok.

i would expect Nolan to have som input on the signing on FA LBs. Anything else would be quite strange.

He's a good player. Very solid. Plus, he takes away the Panthers experience behind LK. Who, God bless him, is one play away from retirement.

Truefully speed is over rated in the NFL. Not sure why it is brought up that much by news guys. I mean the difference between 4.0 and 4.66 is .66 of 1 second lol. Thats not a huge difference.
Also doesnt matter if it cant be sustened, endurance, like cooks can do. To prove that point the great Walter Payton ran 4.84 second 40-yard dash.
Im not sure alot of test in the combine are worth much.

No, Watt is being HURT by his last name similar to QB Carr was just waiting to be taken early in the 2nd if judged on his own merits.

Carolina will probably replace him with Riley from LSU...some think he will be better that Deion Jones...

He's the heat seeking missile Debo is just without the same ball skills. Love this guy.

If you've watch TJ Watt play on Saturdays, you'd know it isn't his last name that makes him a good player. That said, it doesn't hurt that he has the blood line and intensity his brother shares. That's a positive.

Isn't Robertson MLB? I didn't get to see many games last season so hopefully he played a different spot and Klein is here to replace what Laranitus was supposed to be?

Robertson played as either a ILB or LOLB in the Browns 3-4 defense
