I hope you're right about Spence. Lavonte is arguably the best WLB in the NFL, and if Spence is as good or even close, we're going to have a special player on our hands.
It's cold. I actually had to use a blanket last night.
I'd say the timeline depends on the development. If the coaches see development, then you keep him. If there is no development, then the timetable shortens.
That injury (Spence) was one of the most crushing blows to this team in quite a few years. I truly think that LeBeau had a plan for him. Alas...
