Default LB Darnell BING..........out of nowhere

Looks like promising ex-PS is being sized up for a Cushing fill in.

Quote:
Low-profile Bing ready for "opporunity to shine" By Nick Scurfield - Today, 1:03 PM Topic: Training camp

Darnell Bing has flown far under the radar at Texans training camp, but linebackers coach Johnny Holland can’t say enough about him.

Bing (6-2, 238) has played for five teams in four years in the NFL. He has been switched from safety, where he starred at USC, to linebacker to safety and back to linebacker, his current position. Holland sees a player who, 10 months after joining the Texans’ practice squad, is starting to come into his own.

“What we didn’t know about him last year when he was on the practice squad was the physical part of his game, because we weren’t in pads and he didn’t get an opportunity to show that he would hit,” Holland said. “But his athletic ability has definitely shown up. He’s a fluid athlete, he can turn his hips and he has great speed and quickness, and he will step up and be physical in the run game. I’m very excited to see how he’ll play in game situations this preseason.”

Bing was highly-recruited coming out of Long Beach (Calif.) Poly High School in 2002, so much so that then-USC athletic director Mike Garrett unretired his number 20 jersey to give it to Bing. He started three seasons at USC as a strong safety, winning national championships in 2003 and 2004 and earning first-team All-America honors as a junior in 2005.

“I remember Darnell being a ball hawk, a real physical player – easily one of the top safeties in the country,” linebacker Brian Cushing, a freshman at USC in 2005, said.

After leaving school early for the NFL, Bing wasn’t drafted until the fourth round by Oakland. The Raiders moved him to linebacker, but he went on injured reserve before his rookie season. Over the next three years, he bounced around the league as a safety with the Raiders, San Francisco 49ers and New York Jets and a linebacker with the Detroit Lions. He wound up in Houston last October.

“It’s been pretty crazy,” Bing said of his topsy-turvy NFL run. “At the same time, I feel like it’s a good opportunity for me to have been around the league and see how teams operate and learn as much as I can from different players and different coaches. I take it as a good thing. Most people wouldn’t say that, but I think it’s helped me out.”

As Holland points out, Bing has yet to play a down at linebacker in a regular-season NFL game. That explains why he remains virtually anonymous among the Houston media, but it’s also part of what makes Bing such an intriguing prospect.

“We want to coach him and give him some tools so that he can be a good linebacker in this league,” Holland said. “I think he has the mental and physical ability to do that. We look at him out there as a linebacker, and he moves around like a safety. He understands pass drops and coverage. He can turn his hips and break on the ball. He has good hands and good timing in coverage.”

Holland, who played linebacker for the Green Bay Packers and has tutored Texans Pro Bowlers DeMeco Ryans and Cushing, wants Bing to read his keys faster in run fits. Bing said that’s made the biggest difference in his game.

“In Detroit, we were taught a different technique as far as reading keys and stuff like that,” he said. “I feel like the way Coach Johnny’s been coaching me, I’ve been able to play a lot faster.”

It’s not as though Bing, who ran a 10.6 100-meter dash in high school, was hurting for speed to begin with.

“He’s easily our fastest linebacker,” Cushing said. “He’s adjusted really well to the linebacker position. To be honest with you, I’m just really happy and really proud of him. I think he’s having a hell of a camp. He’s shown glimpses of greatness.”

With linebackers Xavier Adibi and Danny Clark hobbled by injuries, Bing expects to play for the majority of the Texans’ preseason opener at Arizona. Holland calls it “a great opportunity for him to shine” after Bing’s strong offseason.

“I’m hoping to go out there and make a lot of plays and show the coaches that I’m capable of being on this team,” he said. “I feel like I’m going to have a really, really good preseason, so I’m looking forward to it. I’m just ready to go out there and hit
Please EDIT: Sorry, but can a MOD change the typo of "BINB' in the title to "BING." Thanks.

This is how a fringe player can get an opportunity. There have been a few players who have successfillu transitioned from college safety to pro LB. The Panthers' Thomas Davis, for one. During Cushing's absence (if it stands), it might make more sense to start a coverage LB like Bing against the Colts, but a more physical LB versus a run first team like the Raiders.

Yeah, I could see Bing against the Colts and Cowboys and then someone like Bentley against the Raiders and maybe the Redskins. Depends on how Shanahan decides to attack us.

And of course, it depends on how Sharpton develops and how Adibi and Clark heal.

I'm liking what I hear about the Texans' level of talent.
The cut down to 53 is gonna send a lot of good players
to the street.

Just a few years ago, the only player on our roster who
looked like they belonged in the NFL was #80. Now, I'm
actually ANXIOUS to see who makes the final 53.

Darnell Bing had similiar issues to Mays, great athlete, terrible ball skills.

I think he could be a player at LB though.

Look forward to seeing how he looks in preseason.

Demeco, Diles, Clark, Bentley, Sharpton, Adibi, Cushing, Bing

By my count that's eight LB's...

How many do we normally keep?

Well, Cushing won't count against the 53 man limit while he's on suspension, so that gets the list down to 7, and I would imagine between Clark, Bentley, Sharpton and Bing, at least one will not make the 53 man roster for opening day, and another will be gone when Cush returns from suspension (unless someone ends up on IR).

6 I think.

Doubtful on Clark, Bing would have to beat out Bentley or maybe the coaching staff gets tired of Adibi's inconsistency/health issues and move on with Bing who offers a lot of the same physical skills. If we had 1 plus coverage LBer to add to Cush/Ryans that would be insane. Neither Ryans or Cushing are great coverage guys and Diles plays fairly averagely. Interesting though and definitely awesome that there is solid depth to the point of having a 6th LBer battle between several interesting candidates.

Cush did have 4 int's though. Granted a couple (?) deflections but still, 4 int's. Saw one reference to D Bing being a "ball hawk" with fluid hips...how could that hurt? C'mon tomorrow nite!!

I'd love to have a second LB who can play the pass. Still physical enough to play the run, but someone who understands coverages, zones, routes, etc... Cushing is the only one that appears to understand on the field.

But don't forget Greenhouse. The coaches have said good things about him, too.

Last season, I think we just had Demeco, Cush, Diles, Adibi, and Bentley.

I expect Demeco, Diles, and Sharpton to definitely have jobs with Cush on suspension. That means a dog fight between Bentley, Bing, Clark, and Greenhouse. Greenhouse probably ends up PS.

Bentley is a monster special teamer. He's going to be hard to get rid of.

IIRC, they went with 5 LBs last year. 7 is at least 1 too many, I think.

I think Adibi goes to IR and Clark gets cut. Bing might make the squad.

Yeah 7 may be a bit much. Though I feel the same at TE. 4, possibly 5 TEs on the roster.

Clark will be cut once Cushing is set to come back. Sucks that it has to happen, but I can see that scenario playing out. We're going to need Clark throughout that 4-game stretch.

The Texans began the '09 season with 6 LBs (Cush, DeMeco, Diles, Adibi, Bentley, Chaun Thompson). Thompson went on IR, and the Texans replaced him with Khary Campbell. Eventually, the Texans cut Campbell loose and went with 5 LBs. But with the Cushing uncertainty and Adibi's injury, I think the Texans start out with 6 LBs.

Bing was Taylor Mays before Taylor Mays

The kid lays the wood, but couldn't cover worth a damn at safety.

I figure he will make the roster as an all-around special teams player, but some starting time would be good.

Can have enough USC boys
