Well, read this thread.....and the dumb statements like the one I was referring to about a less than 100% Beason.

And plenty of people give a poo what level Beason can play at this year....starting with the coaching staff who has Luke learning the MLB position.


You do understand the only reason that he is starting in the middle in OTAs is because Beason is not active yet? Also it has been said that he would be on the outside rotating with Davis.

It has also been said Beason will be asked to play OLB some as well......despite starting off at MLB. It has also been said Luke will will learn and play both....just like Beason.

Luke is learning both for 2 reasons. 1. He is the ideal NFL MLB. 2. Beason's real status for this year is unknown. They aren't going to have Luke play the next 5 years at OLB if he becomes a better MLB option than Beason.

There you go again with trying to make your opinion fact. The only reason they will ever switch positions is because the system we run will be using confusion and states that LBs move around. Also he will move inside on 3-4 plays as well. Also he is best suited to play the Sam position where he could lock down the other teams TE.

Ron Rivera says what he says.

Your post above is opinion. Claiming they will do x bc of y. You don't know y. Ron simply stated x.

LBs don't move around in the JJ43 if we run that....and we don't know what we will run. Don't lecture on assuming/opinions when your post doesn't exactly that.

And again, if he doesn't return to full strength Luke easily could play MLB this year. If Beason needs more time to recover he may never get the job back if Luke is what many project. That is NFL football. Simple and plain. With a stud drafted in Luke and a major injury to Beason....you can't predict how the LB corp will shake out over the next couple years.
