You couldn't ask for better competition on the Right side of the ball. It's been noted that it takes 3-4 linebackers a coule of years to slide into the starting role and perform well. Peek is just following a good blueprint set by many linebackers in the past at his positions. Take a year to learn the terminology, get adjusted to a new system in a hybrid role, and get your body adjusted to the NFL. 2nd year, learn your position well and gain some experience. I could see Peek coming in on passing downs in a similar role that Suggs had last year for the Ravens and possible giving Wong some competition. I would much rather have Wong give Foreman competition and ultimately see him in the ILB role while having Peek as the outside man, than having Wong fight off Peek while Foreman gets no pressure from his backup.
