Vilma was a 'mike,' right?

How does he stack up in terms of size with DeMeco?

Me, not trying to replace anyone - just thinking out loud.

Very telling:

Vilma (ILB)...6'1" 230 lbs

Demeco.......6'2" 236 lbs

Then you've basically have two very similar linebackers in terms of size and one of them blew out a knee......

Yea.

But...but....but Ryans played OLB in college so lets just move him over there & then Vilma can step in at MLB and fix all our LB problems.

You know that old saying:

If it ain't broke, try to fix it anyway. Ryans is All-Pro, but at OLB he could be All-Galaxy.

I think I've made my position clear on the moving Ryans outside idea so this will be my last post about it so I wont get flamed any more.

Interesting idea.

Now, with that said, I wonder if our good GM has any thoughts on it or if he's content to leave DeMeco at ILB.

There is no way, reguardless of position combonation, that having both Vilma and DeMeco would be a bad thing.

Having that behind AO and MW would be a nightmare for a good 10 years

I still think we need something beefier on the d-line but I could live with Vilma and DeMeco on the field at the same time.

I think we should sign Vilma and force him to play WLB to see if, when identified on the field, he'd be called "Wilma" instead of "Will."

Just a thought....

Scratch the Broncs from the list

Quote:
Thomas talks end. Zach Thomas' agent said his client will not visit Denver. The former Dolphins linebacker will sign elsewhere, said agent Drew Rosenhaus.

Denver was one of six teams to make contact with Rosenhaus after Thomas was cut by Miami. He has visited New England and New Orleans and will visit Dallas and Houston next week.

ZACH GOES HOME

After receiving offers from the Patriots and the Saints in the past few days, linebacker Zach Thomas has opted to join a team that plays in his home state.

Per a league source, Thomas has agreed to terms with the Dallas Cowboys. He's a Texas native, and played college football at Texas Tech.

It's a multi-year deal. No further details are available at this time.

Thomas was a fifth-round draft pick of the Dolphins in 1996. He spent twelve years in Miami.

From PTF, you decide...

That spells some doom for one Mr. Bobby Carpenter.

Good, I'm glad we lost out on the Zach Thomas sweepstakes.

Matt Mosley confirmed this on Hashmarks. Since I live in Dallas, I am sure I will hear about this a lot, but I am not surprised. I am glad he didn't sign with us, anyway. We need a more athletic linebacker that can run sideline-to-sidline. Could this mean the end of Bradie James in Dallas?

Probably not.

Maybe Akin Ayodele though.
