    With all the moves going on would Brooks Reed be a good LB if they decide to move him there, maybe upon retaining Mario Williams.

    I dont see why he wouldnt be a servicable MLB .... if it came to that.

    Demeco is still on the roster so no need to move Reed even if they do resign MW (which its looking like they wont).


    /End thread.

    I don't think there's a need to move Reed to ILB right now but I think if it did happen I think he could handle the position quite well. He's quick and attacks the LOS well.

    It seems that the Texans were cutting players to get under the cap. This almost certainly means that Mario Williams will become the highest paid defensive player in NFL history. The Bills owner sent his jet to pick up Williams and there are several teams with a ridiculous amount of cap space. For these reasons coupled with the personnel on our current roster Brooks Reed will surely be starting at OLB next year given some sort of miracle does not transpire. We won't be signing Manning and I'm starting to doubt if we will resign Myers. Just had to get that out of my system. Could Brooks Reed play ILB, maybe. He is certainly big and fast enough.

    No, Brooks Reed would not make a good MLB IMO.

    Atleast not based on what I saw last year. I don't think he's that type of athlete and when O-linemen get their hands on him he tends to get stuck for a while. That's not a good trait for a MLB.

    Huh, Brooks Reed will be starting at OLB. On passing downs he might play end but never MLB. This thread is not realistic. It would be like saying Can Arian Foster be a serviceable FB. Just not going to happen. We got Cushing and Ryans at MLB in our base defense and Ryans comes out during passing downs. Even if Ryans is gone, which does not look to happen in the near future, Brooks Reed will not play ILB. This is not realistic.

    Well, to be fair, I think the OP was saying if Mario was back (or basically if there was another top tier pass rushing threat that needed to get on the field)...

    I think in limited circumstances he could probably play in the middle...blitz up the middle...Simple zone or something...

    But I do not think he can be a MLB....I don't think he could play extensive action at that position...

    I think we should have started Neil "Bring The Pain" Rackers and Brett "Hitman" Hartmann at MLBs. Screw the other 2 bums we had in there. Hitman and Bring The Pain were knocking fools out last year on ST. Would have been ProBowl MLBs.

    Reed is a pass rusher. He's a DE/OLB, not an inside backer.
