Reddick or Burns, who you keeping? Why?

Recommended Posts

I listened to Kyle Bailey talk after he had Fitterer on the show yesterday. Fitterer said they have to set the edges better next year to stop the run, and they need bigger guys. So he said he thinks one will be gone, it sounded from Kyle and the other guy talking they would keep Reddick. They was saying how Burns always gets to far up the field and whiffs on a lot of tackles. I agree I would resign Reddick and see what I could get for Burns. I don’t see how he made pro bowl over Reddick honestly. What do y’all think?

I don’t Reddick resigns here. We probably try and sell Burns too. 

We can’t lose both if Reddick doesn’t resign we keeping Burns. You can’t lose both starting DE, we already have enough holes to fill.

We have no identity on defense.

We have a mix of 34 and 43 guys and sometimes look great, other times look horrible.

We probably need to decide who we are on defense before signing guys to long term deals because 50% of the time, they look good

If we run a 34, then Burns and Reddick will be great as OLB's, if not.....

If forced to pick? Keep Burns 

Reddick will IMO require a big and lengthy contract.  So it will tie him to our next HC pending Rhule is gone after next year.   And he isn’t a universal fits everything defensive player.   And I don’t want to see what Matt Rhule would pay Reddick given what we saw with Robby. 

if we had fired Rhule and I knew our next coach? The answer might be different.

Honestly I would consider flipping burns for some draft capital, potentially multiple picks for next year. 

This would be after we re-sign Reddick though. 

I dunno, Burns has been fine, but like DJ Moore, he has both impressed and disappointed me throughout his tenure here.

Reddick is a Temple guy so Rhule probably makes him the highest paid defensive player in NFL history.

Realistically, I try to keep both and run a legit straight up 3-4 D. Burns and Reddick both fit better as 3-4 OLBs. As starting DEs you're just too light to stop the run consistently. I think we're closer to fielding a 3-4 front than we are a 4-3.

As great a pass rusher as Burns is, he's been here three years now.  He's still making the same mistakes.  Over-running the quarterback.  Missing tackles in the backfield.  I'm afraid all he's ever going to be is a pass rush specialist.  

While those guys are valuable, they are a luxury.
