75 combine tackles 2011.


The Sideline View's Adam Caplan reports the Texans have "sincere interest" in free agent ILB Joe Mays.Per Caplan, there's a "realistic chance" the Texans make Mays a contract offer within the next 24 hours. Mays visited the Redskins on Saturday night, but left without a deal. The Texans are seemingly annually thin at inside linebacker. Jul 28 - 6:55 PM

You think is okay to lead with the helmet sometimes? I don't care who the QB is we're facing, that's no bueno.

That may be. Personally I'd sign him if we're thinking about replacing Sharpton, otherwise..... he's the same guy. Maybe better. But still a downhill player & we need more versatility from that guy than what we have now.

That's why I liked the idea of moving Reed inside. He has to turn & run with RBs & TEs now & does an ok job at it. He might be much better facing the QB playing more zone.

If the ILB knocks the TE on his butt immediately there is no need to turn and cover.

Interesting side note from the Washington Post:

Quote:

Deal between Joe Mays and Redskins remains possible



By Mark Maske and Mike Jones, Published: July 28 at 2:46 pm


The Washington Redskins remain in the running to sign free agent linebacker Joe Mays. Mays visited the team Saturday but did not immediately complete a deal. According to a person familiar with the situation, the visit went well and an agreement remains possible but was not expected to happen Sunday. Mays was headed for Houston for a visit with the Texans, the person said.
