Sharpton (IF healthy) becomes quality depth, along with Dobbins.
I feel much, much better about ILB now. Mays is not a world beater, but he can play and won't embarrass as a starter.
Now as for OLB....
I agree Porkster. I breathed a sigh of relief and believe if Mays returns to pre-injury form our LBs just got significantly better. We might make other pickups as TC forces teams to make decisions and cut quality guys (hopefully).
