With Thomas Keiser cut, this now becomes an issue, especially with the staff's new focus on D-Linemen rotation. Of course, this is assuming that Johnson, Hardy and Alexander are locks for three of the roster spots, which is a pretty safe assumption.

 

So who do you think it will be? Do we have some yet to be developed talent on our roster, or are we going to have to pick up a free agent? If we go FA, are we looking for a gem on someone else's roster who gets cut due to depth, like Dwan last year, or a vet we can pick up for the minimum who can guide a still young Hardy and Alexander?

 

What say you?

I liked what I saw from Addison last year, but I think Horton will surprise quite a few. If I'm not mistaking, Horton was a pretty highly touted recruit who just didn't happen to pan out.

As of right now I would say Mario. Hopefully someone comes in and surprises everyone, That could very well be Horton, i doubt it though, he doesn't look too great on film

By cutting Keiser, Addison is pretty much guaranteed the 4th DE spot.

Don't think the 4th spot is guaranteed to anyone. It very well could be someone who's on another team ATM.

There is a name that no one has even mentioned, maybe because he has been forgotten due to him being on I.R and that name is Antwan Applewhite. I believe he is a hybrid DE/LB but I think he will help.

Just did a little research on Wes Horton...

 

He was the 40th ranked player in the nation (rivals), but was only recruited by Pac 12 schools (then Pac 10). 

 

He started as a redshirt freshman and played well, but got injured his sophomore season and never really got his entire game back together. 

 

All together, he has good height and decent speed. He doesn't get off the line particularly fast but shed's blockers quite well due to his good hands.

 

I checked Horton's career stats and had 117 tackles, 14.5 sacks, and 18 tackles for a loss (not too shabby).

 

NFL.com compared him to Austen Lane...

He's a free agent, and wasn't resigned; that's why everyone forgot about him.

Haha, at 2:05 in that video Hoton gets burned by none other than.... Kenjon Barner. I guess he'll have his chance at revenge in training camp.

My bad, I was under the impression he was just coming back from injury.

I say Addison, and then Nate Chandler as the DT/DE hybrid.

I think Gettleman will look to bring someone for vet minimum after TC cuts. Pro scouting is what he does, and he's always talking about the bottom 50 percent of the roster.
