When McLendon is on the field, he requires two guys - Hampton doesn't anymore. We have bigger and much more pressing needs than NT - a position we have two young and explosive guys at.
Regarding Wallace - he rarely took the top off defenses because under Haley's system, he's required to run underneath routes and intermediate gains - something he isn't good at. Square peg, round hole.
I didn't mean to "put you down", but you have to look at our actual needs and who we have on our roster behind our veteran guys and see their production and potential. NT isn't a need, but OLB, ILB and FS/SS are.
i hear you but i thought they released Ta amu. McClendon isnt the answer. if he was he would be in there more than hampton was.
this offseaosn will be interesting. with out age the window is closing
