Training camp fodder or legitimate depth?
he was awesome in indy hes still kinda young so i would be excited for him to come here... lets sign him up maybe he can turn things around
I just don't know about him. He did some good things in Indy but I don't know if that was just because he was in the right scheme. You would have expected him to have the same sort of success in Tampa.
I'm fine if we sign him. But I won't be heartbroken if we don't. He should at least bring some competition to camp. I doubt he'll want to play ST, though... and if he doesn't play ST, he'd better win the starting gig outright.
maybe with frank bush's attack defense... cato junes speed could be a good asset... like i said i would be excited
that said him and adibi are pretty similar just need to see who is beter
Solid vet who would push Adibi if signed at a fair price. He went to a pro bowl with the Colts, the Bucs had all sorts of problems last season including their DC announcing his resignation midseason that demoralized every player on that side of the ball.
He's got Adibi's speed plus he's won a Superbowl. Signing him would certainly make it easier for us to go BPA in the draft...
Believe it would be a solid signing. Depth more than likely, but if Bush has the attacking D he wants 3rd and long could be a ***** for our opponents.
Meh. The guy weighs 230 pounds. We already have SO many undersized LBs. I guess that's all we want. How did Chaun Thompson ever hook on with us? He weighs like 255!
Cato June was awsome with the Colts, this would be a great signing.
I kind of forgot about the guy but if he is still healthy seems good to me.
LOL...love to see him line up across from Peyton Manning! Manning would be like, "WTF?!?!...oh $hit here comes the blitz, to the fetal position!"
He was really good with the Colts. What happened to him in Tampa though?
At least he would add depth with the potential for more (hopefully).
Chris, I'm not sure why you say "so many"? We have one undersized LB, right?
Other than Adibi, I think every LB on the roster is at, or above 245 lbs. i guess you could argue that Chaun Thompson is the only LB that has the ideal size for SLB but Bentley, DRyans, Diles are all average sized or better for the Will or Mike... at least that is what I've been led to believe.
Isn't Diles just short? He's pretty thick I believe.
Am I the only one who wouldn't want him? It's not a big deal if we do sign him, it's just that his whole career has been in Tampa 2. Not saying he couldn't learn the Texans' system, I'm just saying I am very skeptical.
now this is interesting....
would it be a bad thing to have a guy that went up against Manning in practice for four years...?
definitely worth a look and perhaps a reasonable contract...
...if he signs, do we still draft a OLB with that #15 pick??
He'll be depth, at best I think. He really hasn't done masses at Tampa in regards to making game changing plays, his stats have been right down from his time at Indy. I guess I don't really see him as ever being a player who can help us over the hill, but I'm fine with him coming in here to provide some depth, and cover us in case of injuries.
At this point in his career he's quality depth for us. He'd probably be the second guy off the bench after KB.
He's probably going to want actual money though, since he's been a starter for so long.
I'd rather pass. The Texans should be looking to get bigger, not smaller.
Fact is the only LB on our roster who has the speed to cover Dallas Clark 2x a year is Adibi. Unfortunately, he wasn't healthy for a good portion of last season and that whole issue of not being able to put on weight due to illness for half the season scares the heck out of me. Cato June would be a nice insurance policy who best case would push Adibi for the starting WLB spot and worst case would be a nickel backer who would cover the opposing TE if Adibi got hurt.
My thoughts exactly
I'm surprised he's only been in the league 6 years.... I'd say go for it.
Any LB with 12 career INTs should be able to start on this team.
I don't know why it's not as big a topic here, but our LBs disappear in pass defense.
