    We signed him from the Canadian Football League, not NFL Europe...To answer your question, it is most likely that he will play OLB here, but I remember reading something about him possibly playing ILB...

    i know about this thread viny, i just wonder if he gonna be on the roster at all since we already have "babin, greenwood, wong, peek" as a possible starter. personally i would like to see cheatwood in place of wong and have wong/peek rotate as out side linebacker. what do u think?

    Highly unlikely. 1st Capers really likes Wong's versatility and smarts. 2nd, that spot makes the calls so I doubt Capers puts two guys new to the system out there and lets one make the calls to start the season. Last, Wong will count for $4.4 mil on the cap--don't see him being cut or spending much time on the bench.

    Has anyone heard how he's performed in off-season drills?

    Did not realize that Wong was that expensive. Now I know Kailee came here
    voluntarily as a FA as compared to Sharper who was part of the X Draft, but wonder if the Texans thought he was just a better player than Sharper? He
    is more versatile (looks like he can play any 3-4 backer spot) and a couple years younger than Sharper. Maybe he is a more valuable LB who is younger
    than Sharper, or maybe they kept him instead of Sharper because he kept his
    mouth shut and was a better team guy ? I know he's not thrilled with the
    likelihood that he'll be playing ILB instead of OLB all year.
