Nothin' wrong with that.

Back on topic: glad to see Dobbins re-signed, he's great for depth if nothing else and was a magician with fumbled balls last season.

Dobbins may be marginal, even inferior, in passing & nickel situations but he's solid against the run. Now with him and Sharpton both in the fold, we can breathe a little bit easier about the situation @ ILB. And it also gives us even more flexibility going into the Draft.

I hope you're right. With both coming off IR I'd still like to see a young playmaker added.

The compensatory pick issue has been addressed (he won't hurt us since he was on the roster at the end of last season). It doesn't look like it's a minimum contract, as the minimum for Dobbins would be $840,000.

Quote:
Tim Dobbins agreed to a one-year contract with the Texans. The deal is worth around $1 million with guarantees of just over $360,000.

This is why I hope to see Brooks Reed at ILB. He's not a pass rusher, he's not going to make a significant amount of plays from the outside. He's JAG on the edges.

I expect more from a 2nd round pick. I think we need to move him to see if he can be that impact player we need on the inside.

At the same time, draft a guy who could be that dynamic end rusher we were missing last year.

Leaving Brooks at OLB doesn't help this team get better. We can draft a young guy to be that dynamic play maker inside, but your entire hope for outside pass rush will rest with Whitney Mercilus.

And even if the guy we draft isn't ready for the position, you can rotate Brooks down in pass rushing situations, where we lose nothing from last year. It would be exactly like what we had last year without an ILB with Brooks, Jj, Antonio, & Whitney on the line.

You just limit your ability to improve on your outside pass rush.

I think Reed is ok as a strong side OLB. ok. Not great...but ok...

Him and Merciless starting next year at the OLB spots worries me....I think Reed would be fine at SOLB if the WOLB is a pass rushing force. I do not believe Merciless is that guy...

But I won't rule guys out. Maybe Merciless can improve his game...Maybe Reed can improve his game...

I don't know...But at this point right now, they scare me. I think we need a better pass rush from the edges.

Yes, I'm aware of that, that's why I used the word "and" instead of "which".

It's a good deal, he got a lot of experience in our system last year, and he's better than Bradie James and Barrett Ruud. If we can draft a decent ILB to fight for that starting position next to Cush we should be much better off next year. I was actually afraid Dobbins would be picked up by another team, but I guess he didn't get much interest.

I like having Dobbins back. I think he does well against the run. He thumps when he hits too. Most importantly, if we can keep our starting ILBs on the field he goes back to special teams where he really has made a difference.

Dobbins is solid standing next to Cushing as a run stuffer on 1st and 2nd downs.

QBs that try to run take notice...

Hopefully Dobbin's will be coming off the bench and giving the starter next to Cushing a breather.

Call me crazy, but I actually wouldn't mind drafting an ILB in the first 4 rounds and letting Dobbins start this year. I'm all for upgrading, but he doesn't make me uncomfortable when he's out there. His coverage skills leave a lot to be desired, but he closes on the ball well once the throw is made and is a solid tackler.

If it's not Reed starting, it will be Sharpton.

Hopefully they've seen enough of Brahman to get him on the field.
