21 tackles and 1.5 sacks as a rookie, already better than brown

Browns rookie season = 22 tackles, 2.5 sacks, 7 hits, 13 pressures, 14 defensive stops in 401 snaps

Selvies rookie season = 21 tackles, 1.5 sacks, 4 hits, 5 pressures, 9 defensive stops in 318 snaps

Already better than Brown? Based on what...?

Why? Hardy is the starter. Selvie will be his backup, sounds good to me

And Brown would have been backup as well... so your comment is irrelevant.

If you aren't prepared to give a young guy 3 years to prove himself (typically what most borderline players are given) then why bring in an equally under-whelming young player rather than someone proven?

Based on us cutting Brown and picking up Selvie

Just guessing here, but I figure that the established guys are out there weighing offers, while guys like Selvie, with potential, are subject to the waiver wire and don't get to pick and choose their spots. So you're going to hear about these sorts of signings first.

Obviously the staff felt that Brown just wasn't going to work in their scheme. So they released him. And they probably feel like Selvie might work, so they brought him in. It's not like they signed him to a multi-year contract, right?

I remember checking on him his draft year. Had positive feelings about him then but haven't followed him much since.

I don't see the reason for this pickup after the Brown cut, both are undersized defensive ends who get lost during runs. We could have just kept Brown, who at this point, has more talent. I guess time will tell...

Browns rookie season = 22 tackles (5.5%), 2.5 sacks (0.6%), 7 hits (1.7%), 13 pressures (3.2%), 14 defensive stops (3.5%) in 401 snaps

Selvies rookie season = 21 tackles (6.6%), 1.5 sacks (0.5%), 4 hits (1.3%), 5 pressures (1.6%), 9 defensive stops (2.8%) in 318 snaps

So it's easier for you to process.

I'm pretty sure there was one year there at USF where Selvie was a badass

Just checked, his SO year he was a consensus AA and BE defensive player of the year, maybe he can return to that

Nobody on this board has followed him since. some people go do a quick google search and try to form an opinion in less than 3 minutes of research to pretend they are some kind of know it all expert.
