    Jooser, I agree with you. But maybe we can draft another 1st round guard and he can go both ways at OG and LB.

    He is a special teams player with good instincts...a Keyaron Fox is probably the best comparison...

    He was a guy who had six tackles vs the Steelers in a preseason game in 2012...they probably took notice of him then, if not before...

    Sounds like you describe Sean Spence quite well. Hopefully his rehab is going well.

    Sean Spence before he had all his knee ligaments removed and replaced. I wouldn't count on Spence for anything in 2013 if ever.

    If Wilson can make the special teams "special" then it will be a great addition. The Steeler STs were deplorable and cost the team at least one game and probably more.

    Doesn't sound good for Stevenson Sylvester if that is why they are bringing him in. We have serious depth issues at LB.

    Don't overreact to news of futures contract signing. Here are guys we brought in on futures contracts last year: quarterback Jerrod Johnson, defensive tackle Mike Blanc, defensive tackle Kade Weston, inside linebacker Marshall McFadden, cornerback Antonio Smith, safety Myron Rolle.
