They can do any number of things, but the main thing they need to do on defense is get someone who can produce more than 4 sacks opposite Mario.
Yeah the speculation is maybin is up to 250. That's Sam backer size. I'm not saying he could make the transition in four months....but the guy isn't 235 no more. We're going to find out tomorrow if he can flip his hips and cover.
