Not sure what to make of letting both Senn and Connors go

I understand neither of these guys are starters but the truth is they were getting more playing time than our starters.With Beason coming off an injury that odds are he will not come back at the same level and TD coming of yet a another surgery I honestly dont understand it.Maybe Conner wanted starting money but damn how nuch cheaper can we go if we are trying to add depth replacing Senn.

Do these guys not fit the JJ defense? Why do we keep adding these 3-4 outside linebackers?

Please someone let me know whats going on.

Rivera's scheme is highly dependant on LB play. I would say that he is looking to upgrade the position.

I would expect to see LB be a focus in FA and the Draft.

I like the move, white linebackers don't cut it anymore, minus a few. Maybe we will be switching to a 3-4. Maybe we will sign or draft some lbs better than those two.

I really do not see this as "letting Connor go".

There are teams out there that will sign him to be their starting MLB. He will NOT get that here.

The only way that he would even consider staying here is if we significantly overpaid for him....outbidding teams who are offering him starter money , just to be out backup.

I guess I am not as confident as most that the Beason we are used to will be able to play at the same level give his injury

As some have said last year was open tryouts and they just didn't make the cut. If Rivera and Hurney felt that Beason was not coming back 100% they would have kept Connor.

I would have liked Senn on ST, but he's not a starting LB in the NFL. Maybe he'll come back after he explores other teams.

Maybe it means Kion Wilson, Eric Norwood and Phillip Dillard are ready for prime time. Also i am pretty sure FA and the draft is gonna net us two linebackers as well.

Senn only played because we had so many guys on IR and Connor is a 2 down linebacker. Senn is not going to be starter material and Connor is going to be too expensive to keep although he is till useful to the team. e are going to upgrade that ppositiion and I know where to start. Kuechly in the first would help solidify the group and give you a starter if Davis or beason struggle. Find another guy in FA and the problem is solved.
