You've never had someone pass out at one of your parties? What kind of boring ass shindigs do you throw?

Unless he can play NT, or we move to a 4-3, not sure how he will fit once Clowney gets here ...

Given Clowney's 266 lbs they aren't up for the same spot.

So in a 3-4 would one be the NT or would both be ends?

Clowney has no place on the DL, he would need to be OLB.

He is 25lbs lighter than the lightest DE Crennel has ever used and is exactly in line with the OLBs.

Why does it matter as long as he does nothing wrong?

He is a very similar player to AS and link is to the contract that he signed last year. In a thread titled Bringing Antonio Back, this is a general idea of what it might cost to do just that.

He is nothing like AS as a player. Dude is 255 lbs. He would be in competition with Mercilus here not a replacement for AS.

But cost wise, maybe same ball park. Osi supposedly gave something of a hometown discount but maybe AS will as well.

I think if you can get Antonio back for that price you jump on it. Hopefully Antonio enjoys Houston and wants to make it work.

Ehh....IIRC, he left Arizona because he didn't want to play 3-4 DE and wanted to rush the passer. He was okay with Wade because he ran a non-traditional one-gap 3-4 where he could still rush the passer. I don't see him coming back and being a more traditional 3-4 DE unless he gets zero interest in the FA market.

I'm not sure that reported comment still applies. That was before he had 3-4 experience. After having been in one he may be much less hesitant even in a less penetrating system.

Arizona did run a multiple type defense back when AS was there. He had at least a little experience playing in the 3-4 before he came to Houston.

I'm aware. I still think AS's early comments may be overplayed and they overlook his recent comments on wanting to stay which IMO were more sincere than the typical pro forma statements made.
