Default Re: Another OLB

Like I said before, Woodley or Timmons might get released. Farrior is up there in age and this might be his last season. Harrison might have 2-3 years left as well. Foote is likely gone after this season.So lets look at if Woodley was to be released and Farrior retired at the end of the season.

Sly takes Farrior's place
Worilids takes Woodley's place.
Which would leave Carter as the back up.

Now lets look at this way. Woodley and Timmons are both kept. Farrior retires and Harrison retires in 2-3 years.

Sly takes Farrior's place
and according to the article mesa posted, it would take 2-3 years for Carter to develop. So we have Worilids or Carter competing for the starting job. And competition never hurt anyone right?

Jason La Canfora: OLB Chris Carter, Steelers, Round 5 (162) — I have a feeling the Steelers are going to be able to get legit bang for the buck out of Carter. I love the fit there. A scout told me, “If you love Von Miller, you’re going to at least like this kid.”
