Kikaha is an impact player but with the injury risks you have to cut back on his snaps as much as you can to keep healthy as long as you can

Glad it's a 1-year deal, see what he can do first. Hope he gets after it like he's a Longhorn again as a 4-3 rusher.

Kikaha was a very productive college player. In the NFL he's an average tweener. Not big enough for a DE. Not athletic enough for a LB. Throw in the injuries, and my guess is this is his last NFL camp. If he makes that.

Better draft another DE in the first two rounds. We aren't there yet but we can draft BPA again like we prefer going into the draft. It's tough drafting for need.

We haven't had a good defense here since 2009 and even that is suspect.

2013 was a great defense, 4th overall in defense and 2nd overall in pass defense.

While I wouldn't classify it as a great defense, it was much better than most give credit for.

Good point dizz
