Default Re: Final Roster - The 53 Men

Surprised we've only kept 3 OLBs. This stops the possibility of Harrison moving to ILB this season. We should have signed Roper (with Frazier on PS if no-one else takes him) to allow some flexibility at LB. They must be confident in Boo's ability to play inside if there's an injury . . .
And if Harrison goes down, we're in big trouble . . . at OLB

We either need one of Roper or Frazier to jump in off PS. And in the longer term, replacement 3-4 OLBs are just not out there . . . it takes 3 years usually for a rookie DE to make the switch to OLB. We should have kept another one to be able to develop someone for the future.

At least Zo (who knows the system) will probably be available if all else fails!!! Hope we don't get to that point . . .

Can anyone else see another way around this problem?
