While letting him leave removes a larger salary, it leaves us with a question mark over a prime position. Hopefully, Mercilus and Reed will be productive and a draft pick will increase depth. Team gets younger...
By this point in the season, guys have dropped a little poundage just from the sheer rigors of the sesaon..but its not just the lack of sacks production that i'm looking at with this dude. he's missing tackles left and right, he often times is way out of position containment wise & he's borderline becoming a liability out there.
I never liked the pick but if he was an asset anywhere
i'd be ok with him starting...as he is now, the guy is giving us next to nothing though & we can't have that at that position..it sets us back draft wise though...
