Would not be surprised if we take Jarvis Jones in the first round now. With Phillips gone and Anderson Cut. The safety net is gone.

I'm not knocking Beason or Davis talent. I'm only concerned about their Health. Davis has proven he can play a whole season. Beason on the other hand...

If one of them goes down. Who's next man up? Senn? I'm sorry, he's not up to par with Anderson or Phillips and the drop off between these two with Beason and Davis is significant.

Hurney keeps screwing up this team even after he's gone. My god that man was an idiot.

I'm not worried. If Rivera has proven one thing it's that he gets production out of LBs

Couldn't keep Anderson with $3M cap savings available.

Your answer to our LB health issues is to draft another LB with health issues? Okay...

A need? yes. Huge need? no.

Plus lol at picking Jarvis Jones because of our LB's health concerns considering Jones' medical condition.

If Jones is the BPA at #14, I would be satisfied with the pick. If Patterson is still there, I may poo a brick.

Jason Phillips was claimed off waivers after the season started in in '11. Guys like that can be picked up anytime.

not a huge need.

we might need some more depth, but not enough that we need to be spending an early pick on it.

Backup linebackers can be found in free agency and the draft. That is not a big problem this year. Anderson will be missed but 2.5 million is a lot to pay a backup.
