Apparently he played in all 16 games last year, started 6 and had 47 tackles and a sack.... and brings some 3-4 experience and has played for Phillips before.

Anyone know anything else about this guy?

Not only that, but he was really good in the Shawshank Redemption.

Default Re: Texans sign former Chargers, Dolphins LB Tim Dobbins

Here's an analysis of him coming out of college, but of course, this was 5 years ago. He could have changed a lot.

Quote:
Positives: Looks the part of a physical inside linebacker -- well-built, athletic physique with solid upper body muscle tone, tight waist and abdomens, thick thighs and calves, broad shoulders and minimal body fat (6.2 percent) … Best when playing inside the box, as he plays at a low pad level and has better straight-line quickness than lateral agility … Shows very good agility and balance attacking the rush lanes and has a good feel for blocking schemes … Disciplined going after the ball and has the strength and leverage needed to play at the point of attack … Holds ground firmly and stays on his feet pretty well vs. double teams … Does a good job of sifting through traffic to get to the ball inside and has the agility to get wide and make the play … Good at using his hands to protect his body vs. low blocks … Demonstrates awareness and quickness getting his hands up to knock down passes at the line of scrimmage … When he locates the gaps, he shows good urgency slipping through the hole to close on the pocket.

Negatives: Best against the run, as he appears tentative making proper reads in pass coverage … Has some hip stiffness that prevents him from getting good depth in his pass drops … Can square up and attack blockers, but while he does a good job of using his hands to protect his body on the move, he lets blockers get underneath his pads too much working at the line, causing him to struggle when trying to shed … Too tight in his turn coming out of transition to mirror receivers on intermediate routes … Gets a little reckless when tackling, as he tries to punish backs despite showing decent wrap-up technique.

I don't know much about how he was in the pros though. Seems like a decent depth signing who can spot start.

Played inside LB in the 3-4 for both Miami and San Diego. Probably depth/insurance for DeMeco and maybe ST. No idea what he's like on ST.

Drafted by the Chargers before Wade's final season as their DC.

I can live with this. He wasn't one of the guys on my radar (like Cooper or Morrison) but he'll do, I guess.

Seems like a pretty decent pick up. Apparently he was traded to Mia from SD last year due to his contract, and was released from the dolphins just last week for the same.... to clear cap room.

Fins fans were surprised to see him go and say he is a smash mouth run stopper, but a bit of a liability against the past.

Has Mark Anderson ever played as a OLB in the 3-4 before? I know the Pats are supposedly switching to more of a 4-3 apparently, and he will be a DE there just like here. Losing Anderson doesn't really bother me. We get Barwin back and we drafted Reed.

I am more worried about the health of our two starting ILBs.

Would of rather they have kept Diles but understood why the Texans couldn't. A definite need for depth purposes.

Nice pick up. I don't think we have any 3-4 experienced LB's in our roster. Dobbins is experienced not just in 3-4 but familiar with Wade's system(In 2006,only one year but better than nothing) which is a plus for us.

Go Texans!!!

The Dolphins on Monday cut backup linebacker Tim Dobbins in what they told him was a money-driven decision.

Dobbins had 47 tackles and one sack last season and started six games. He signed a three-year, $7.9 million contract before last season and was due to make $1.7 million this season.

I may have come across the reason why an ILB move was finally made. Did anyone know that Sharpton was sidelined for a shoulder injury?

Aww, crap. I was thinking he'd be impact this year. Hope it's minor?

I was thinking he was signed because of Cush's knee.
