Im thinking that we may be looking for something in return if we sign meachem and take that dead money off of SD's hands. At least a pick or player or Idk.. if we sign him before Sunday that's the only benefit I see.

6 WRs, 3 TE's; and if they're going to play in a 4-3 formation as often as it sounds like, the OLB situation is not that big of a problem.

Maybe Colston's foot is worse than we think?

Re: Meachem breaking news

7 wrs mostly due to injuries.. Colston isnt 100 a lot of the time and we have like 2 newbs included in that if Meachem comes its because he knows the system and backup incase someone gets hurt (nothing like having someone who knows the system) and most teams have two tes so u can't blame them for that. we have two good tes at that. I'm thinking that we kept 5 rbs because mainly Cadet would be Kr and Khiry was just too good to leave it to chance he'd get through waivers. I don't really care if Meachem comes back because we were solid without him.

I don't see how 3 OLBs is any less of a problem whether in the 4-3 or 3-4? Both formation schemes utilize 2 Outside Linebackers...

But I don't see it as a problem anyway when you have ILBs who can play outside, Hawthorne & Herring for certain and I bet Reddick and Humber could play outside as well if need be.

And Ryan lines players up all over and moves them around a lot pre-snap, so inside/outside doesn't really matter

Re: Meachem breaking news

Yeah someone help me from doing the research here but what is the contract worth (if reported yet) and what financial hit are we taking outside of that contract (if any).

Also we all know there is a reason for this move. It wasn't on a whim or because 'he did ok last time'. The only solid experience we have at WR is Colston and Moore. Let's say Colston goes down. I don't feel confident only having the one real experienced head at WR. So I like seeing someone who is more of a vet AND knows our organisation and our staff and our playbook. That makes sense to me.

Re: Meachem breaking news

New formation devised by SP with a 5 WR set. Failturds will never see what hit them.

Re: Meachem breaking news

olb is a problem area when all of them are coming off injury even harlason pectoral muscle can and probally will be a problem again at some point our defense sucked last yr and all those guys playing inside lber where second and third string for a reason what makes you all think they are all of a sudden be allpros at another postion that they haven't played there is a big difference to playing inside and outside

Haralson is coming back from a torn triceps tendon, not really a big deal. And Ryan uses his OLBs to rush the passer 80+ percent of the time. What makes that so different than what Galette, Wilson were already doing?

Hell Wilson and Galette both played OLB in college...
