It makes sense because as a linebacker he has a much higher chance of tearing his knee up again, whereas on ST he still has a chance but a lower chance.
I should have said this before but I deff think we should have cut him this offseason. Hurney has a problem of holding on to players too long (Dan Morgan). I thought we would stop when Fox left but guess not.
So back to out argument....Would I rather have him play 16 games at ST or 4 games at LB...you know my answer.
I rather use him as a situational player. That, he has a better chance of playing 16 gms.
16 ST? Kidding. He'd be gone in your 4 games.
It's more like this: 16 gms situational player or 4 gms ST.
