Sylvester is a special teamer and Foote is on the downhill slide of his career. The only LB on the roster fit to start inside is Timmons right now.
Did MJD have the look of a pro back when he entered the league? Did Lambert look like a middle linebacker? Looks are deceiving. You see someone that only weighs 300 as opposed to 350. I see someone who is excellent at shedding blocks and collapsing pockets. Plays low has great leverage and has the frame to put on atleast 30 more pounds and maintain explosiveness if that'll make you happy.
Foote may be past his prime but I've felt that way about Farrior since 07. I won't dismiss Sylvester until he gets a real chance. About him being a special teamer all I have to say about that was so was Harrison.
