    can JJ play ILB?

    serious question... with Worilds returning I wonder if this is an option?

    Can he? Probably.. after a long transition time (i.e. Timmons)

    Will he? No.

    ILB in a 3-4 is a completely different animal.

    He isn't nearly thick enough, as his body was last season, to play inside. You got to have some junk in the trunk, a little bit of a banger, like Timmons developed into. JJ just isn't thick enough.

    If Woodley, Worilds and Jones all return (unlikely), I don't think that JJ gets moved inside. However, I can see Lebeau using a package that gets all three on the field in passing situations. He just started using a package like that last year when Woodley got hurt.

    He definitely can, I just hope he catches on as an OLB

    Most likely, yes, unless he agrees to a pay cut.

    Timmons' transition was not as long as many want to characterize.

    Perhaps he should ask James Harrison about how not to make a stupid career decision! Or perhaps his ego will get in the way too.

    The problem is he is also not "thick enough" to beat NFL Left tackles
