I really am thinking that Howie Roseman has a plan that we arent seeing for defense, and it is radical.
More and more teams throw the ball, and more and more the nickel back is more important than the MLB (or 3rd LB if you prefer). I am starting to think that the plan is to play in a base nickel system. With the signing fo Jackson and by adding a LB who is better against the run than the pass I wouldnt be surprised to see them doing something like this.
The draft is going to be very interesting. The dumpster diving that Roseman does will be even more telling as I think he is waiting until the prices come down to add a couple more pieces and then make up the difference in the draft.
Needs: RB (maybe extreme), LB (really, we only have 1 that anyone would want, we need a couple), Backup S and CB, Backup QB, another interior OL that can play C. Backup TE?
I hope they know what Sproles plans are, he should know by now.
Does DJax still return punts? might be getting a little too old and injury prone for that.
They might want to push Chris Long for a decision also (unless they already know).
