Well said....All I expect is for Fox to help on the kick coverage units which is needed bad....lol If he can show anything as a backup LB then that will just be gravy......

I think it depends if they extend Farrior for another 2 seasons. What kind of real depth is there at ILB on the Steelers?

Basically our OLB's look like Harrison, Woodley, Frazier, Arnold Harrison, Fox.
The ILB's look like Foote (who everybody wants to write off) Farrior(who is nearing the end of his career) and Timmons (who has done nothing to this point in the NFL)

I expect to see an ILB signed or Farrior extended. Otherwise the future of ILB is Foote and Timmons.

He's got great numbers on paper, good size and great speed, I watched a little of that chiefs game, he got a lot of playing time for donnie edwards if i recall right, I remember that Napolean harris was going crazy for the chiefs specifically, something like 20 tackles ... Fox had 9 solo tackles.

At the very least he should be solid on special teams. This signing definitely takes LB off of Day 1.
